App description: Pocketgamer - "The Other Brothers has the potential to be the best mobile platformer of 2013. Seriously." - Top 20 Anticipated iOS Games of 2013

TouchArcade - "A really slick-looking pixel-art-packed platformer that we've had our eyes on for quite some time now." Top 10 most anticipated upcoming games

Kotaku - "What I'm liking about how this is shaping up isn't just the fact its visuals are all retro-inspired, but the controls as well."

Indiestatik - "The Other Brothers is interesting for a number of reasons that lie beyond its attractive pixel art. Levels are non-linear and encourage exploration!"

INSERT COIN

The Other Brothers is a difficult and challenging platform adventure which appeals to people who love a bold pixel art aesthetic combined with cutting edge rendering techniques.

With today's technology we are able to bring back that classic 16-bit aesthetic and combine it with modern mechanics, physics and gameplay to bring you a platforming experience like no other!

Pixel art is a beautiful art form that was swept away by the advances in 3D graphics. We are bringing it back for the new generation and making it better than ever!

Join The Other Brothers: Joe and Jim, as they traverse junkyards, cities, sewers and more as they battle the mafia, police, robots, ninjas and monsters in an ill-fated attempt at rescue... but do our heroes know exactly what they're getting into?

Hold jump when jumping to jump that bit higher
Hold jump after stomping to bounce higher
You can double jump higher at the apex!
Use B to attack if you collect weapons
Always keep a pigeon on you - if you are hit get one ASAP!
All enemies have unique AI - lure them into attacking first.

As much as I hope so, I teally doubt anything will happen at this point. I go back and try to replay this game occasionally and it's just so brutally hard it's zero fun. I cant even jump on the most common enemy effectively, and the wrench throwing powerup is only temporary unlike say the fire flower in regular mario bros. Your guy is so outgunned it's hilarious. Worst letdown of 2013, should have deleted a long time ago, now I am doing so.

There's something about this game that I always find interesting, not necessarily the game its self, but how the whole thing panned out, from the first upcoming announcement, to the 100 pages of disappointment, to the studios changing, the entire saga.


If anyone from simian squared reads this, would ever care to do a short write up of your experiences with this game and how you felt about it, and what happened?

So there isn't any hope for an update? I didn't feel encouraged to read the latest posts since I'm saddened by the entire thing, but what can you share on the subject?
