Pilot Brothers is a very funny cartoon adventure game from the studio 1C Wireless LLC, created based on the cartoon about how two koloboks were detectives. Certainly, the heroes of this game will remind you of characters such as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. The boss looks more serious and responsible investigator, constantly smokes a pipe and sometimes plays the trumpet, and his colleague plays the role of a naive fool who always understands nothing but nevertheless bring positive results in the search for answers to some questions.
GameplayIn this game, you will have to control both characters in turns. The challenge is to find the thief who managed to steal a striped elephant from the zoo. The first suspect is the former owner of the elephant named Karbofos who is accused in several more high-profile cases. However, suspicion is one thing, and the brothers Pilot need to gather evidence, so they go straight to the zoo.
Having got to the zoo, the brothers realize that the local guard doesn't take them seriously and simply refuses to let the detectives on the scene, demanding to pay for the entrance. The brothers don't have money, but desperate situations don't exist for them and they find a way to come up with the cash. Generally speaking, you will have to go through many locations filled with riddles and comic moments. Importantly, do not forget to change the detectives in places, because if something goes wrong with one of them, the other will surely make it.
Game controllingControlling in the game is performed by means of taps on the screen. In the right part of the screen, you can select any detective (you can also select the characters by directly touching it) and then decide how he will act - with bare hands or by using something from the inventory. You will have to collect different things (most importantly to find it), learn to negotiate with animals or affect them in other ways.
In cases when one of the characters cannot cope with an assignment, he will let you know by an unambiguous phrase or gesture, and you will send the other to perform the task. In some cases, the brothers will have to interact and, frankly speaking, these moments are a little tiring. For example, in order to make the boss to play the desired song by the piano, you should ask his colleague to turn the pages of the music book a few times. The boss himself seems to think it's unworthy of him and will stand next to the tool till the end of time but won't touch the music book.
ResumeIn general, the game is very interesting. It is interesting as much as its predecessor for PC was which was published ten years ago. We recommend it to all lovers of quests. You can download the game Pilot Brothers for free but after completion of the second level, it will ask you to buy it.
