Gun Bros revives the glory of those old arcades where you scrolled in a map shooting everything down and everything sparkles and shines and blows magnificently up. In fact, everything in Gun Bros is blinding: lava melts, ammo's made of plasma, things explode willing or not and so on. To put it another way, graphics and sound are excellent, just as we expected from Glu Mobile (and a heavy download, too).
Gameplay is very good, with a smooth touch response that allows subtle moves and strategies. Or at least, all the strategies you can imagine in the midst of a scrolling arcade, of course.
Gun Bros has lots of weapons and features that would be too long to list. The biggest and more powerful can only be bought through an in-app purchase, but it seems that they aren't needed to enjoy the game. You can add Facebook friends so the AI can help you and they can earn experience at the same time. This Facebook feature is far more interesting than you could think at the beginning and adds a new look to the social component of shoot'em ups (mmm...can you see what we mean?). It's beyond "look for neighbours", it's like "can I borrow your character for a while?" You can also lend "yourself" to your friends to help them.
Great game. Fully recommended.
