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!"


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?

This game has its own energy or life force, if you will. Its natural environment is on my phone. I want it on my phone. Its bags are packed. It has its plane ticket. Bring it to the Aus Appstore and send it to my phone
