Gun Bros is a very dynamic third-person shooter for Windows Phone, playing which you can unnoticedly spend a few hours. In this game you will find high-quality three-dimensional graphics, colorful special effects and a great soundtrack. You awaits for two main characters (Percy Gun and his brother Francis Gun), and you can control the one of them that you like. At the same time, whoever you choose, his brother will always be there and support.
Plot and progression of eventsBoth characters are members of the unit called F.R.A.G.G.E.D. watching over order on the territory of several galaxies, and they are often faced with the gang named T.O.O.L. planning to capture all of the closely spaced galaxies and turn the inhabitants into their slaves. A key element in the game is a very rare mineral X-plodium which has enormous energy potential. Both our characters and their enemies are fighting primarily for the mineral, as it helps one group to improve weapons and fight with various civilizations, and another group needs it in order to have the strength to hold the aggressors back.
Objectives and tasks in Gun BrosApart from the destruction of the enemies of different types and suits, you have to engage in the search for and collection of energy minerals. Only having collected a certain amount of X-plodium, you can expect to buy new better weapons. The battle with the monsters is happening at a very fast pace, and even though enemies attack in waves, the speed of it creates a sense that it is one continuous flow. Attacks on the brothers will be carried out on all sides, and after you cope with the regular crowd of monsters there will be a transition to the next level.
This happens almost invisibly to the players, as if the save points are performed which begins the game in case of the death of one brother. Detailing of the game world is made almost flawlessly, and looking around you may find, for example, barrels with explosives. Wait until the crowd crawls next to a barrel, and take a few shots at it. Simultaneously, a powerful explosion will thunder that will take away several enemy's lives.
ResumeSafety and controllingAt the time of the event you must observe safety precautions and stay away from the epicenter of the explosion. Otherwise, each of the main characters may also suffer from a shrapnel or blast wave. Controlling in the game is very simple and is carried out mainly by two multi-position joysticks. Left one provides moving across locations, and the right one is for the shooting and its direction. In general, the game is pretty interesting and will certainly appeal to fans of the genre. The most important thing is that it is distributed free of charge.
