Two Brothers is a 2D puzzle adventure game where we follow Roy, an inventor, explorer and philosopher on an adventure with his brother Bivare to make big discoveries out in the world.
Story: Two Brothers Story is definitely nothing fancy, essentially Roy is just another average explorer out looking to make big discoveries and become known. As expected a terrible accident befalls his wife and he calls on his brother Bivare to assist in continuing his journey and to find his wife. So essentially the story is just a basic 2D adventure game story, but still interesting enough to enhance the nostalgic or new found experience for players.
Gameplay: Two Brothers is definitely great when it comes towards gameplay as the controls are basic, nothing fancy. Also when you play it you feel the nostalgia kick in making you realize that its great when it comes towards gameplay. One of the better aspects is the free roam, it really makes Two Brothers that much more enjoyable. The only draw is a lack of hints to get you around so that there is less confusion for the people who like to just straight shoot through games and be done with it.
Graphics / Music: The graphics in Two Brothers are great and appeals to the old fashioned style of the Gameboy. Combining that along with the music is great because it stays in line along with all the Gameboy games and continues that enjoyable experience desired by those with love for vintage games. A game like this, when combining its graphics and music, delivers on the nostalgia it aims to create
Replay Value: The replay value in Two Brothers is quite grand actually, based on the fact that the developers made sure to follow other 2D puzzle adventure maps and made them to be quite massive in scale. Also you can find a lot of items in chests and hidden around the map giving you more reason to take your time to explore the map.
Online Capabilities: Two Brothers was developed with a local co-op but not fully online feature, you can use the Gameboy Link Cable (just kidding).
Two Brothers is a great 2D puzzle adventure game that you would see on the Gameboy and its existence allows players in today’s age to experience games of that era. The game itself has its flaws but overall I enjoyed it a lot. I would recommend it to fans of classic Gameboy titles such as Pokemon due to its rich world, stylized graphics and music and its ability to keep you interested, well deserving of a Diamond Game distinction.
