Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Reviews

Really different game with clever solutions to solving problems. Game was pretty short. Under 5 hours play time, but we didnt see this as a negative. Its like renting a movie or some other activity that you expect to entertain you for a short period of time. Well worth a few dollars for 5 hours of highly entertaining and engaging gaming fun. And you can play through again to get the achievements…

Just finished the game . Big and 5/5 score.

This game as reflected in our review title is all of that. The puzzles are mostly not the trickiest although some of them make you scratch your head and can be changeling, but this game is a story adventure that makes you feel that you are traveling thru an ancient land on a magical quest. Great diversionary time from your modern day. The controls and screen rotation are sometimes finicky but it is acceptable. If they stick just go to save screen and go back in to game. 2 clicks. Game totally worth finishing.

Por mas juegos como esteee!!! La dinamica entre los hemanos los paisajes de verdad que es precioso el juego!!

Idk why these people are saying the game was hard bc there were no clues, but it was all about common sense or using knowledge. We didnt have to search on YouTube at all to get clues and we finished the game in one night. It was also very fun but may be graphic bc of suicidal stuff, other wise the game is great. The game also never glitches on our iPad so yeah.

This was a great game we played this game on a iPad Pro it was flawless thanks.

We like this game a lot! The story is great, deep and has great morals. We hardly liked fantasies with fantasy creatures because they were too idealistic for us, but this is great!!! We loved how they combined fantasy elements with a realistic world. It helps you accept reality insteading of escaping like other fantasies do. And unlike fantasies, the game requires you to use your brain to solve situations rather than using magic to get out of them. We love this story! Its pretty serious, but very good morals. Love the scenery, design and music! And we love the ending! This is a great app idea, we wish they have more like this!

We’ve played this game 3 times and it still never gets old. We keep hoping there is more. Every year we look up brothers 2 we were thinking maybe this time the younger brother can have a baby brother because the dad married someone else or something. And then it shows the younger brother and his baby brother at an older age and they go on another adventure. We love all the details and the graph Inca are amazing. Please make another one!! We cant get over how much we love this game!!

So smooth,heart touching game!!!

What an enjoyable game! Admittedly we ran into one glitch that forced us to start the chapter over & the controls are a bit wonky. It does take a few scenes to get used to them. We played on an IPad so no joystick involved. Even so we really enjoyed the story and hope to see more of these developers in the future.

This game is pretty good for its age! 5 years ago and the graphics looked like this cant wait for the mobile version.

We played this game over a year ago and still have fond memories of it. Yes, the gameplay could get a little tedious and frustrating at times with the dual control but overall it worked well and the concept was fun. The story and scenery are beautiful and heart wrenching, especially if you have a sibling youre close to. Great game, thanks for sharing the world with us.

This game is amazing the graphics are gorgeous and stunning every time we play we appreciate it more! The gameplay is really smooth on our iPhone never had any issues, if you like an adventure this is definitely worth buying we’ve played this game at least five or six times and it never gets old!

We couldnt understand the story, but we realized you dont need to understand what you are hearing to feel. All we can say about this game is (Wow) and it should be a 10x star rating because all the people who created this Game are bright stars. Im looking forward to part2, we cant stop smiling never played a game that made us want to cry after finishing it. We dont know about anybody else but we felt like we were actually apart of the story and lost our brother:(((

We are blown away by this unexpectedly beautiful game. Or is it simply a story we partake in? Its not only gorgeous, graphically, but the gameplay is perfect. We did not find the controls difficult to use, though the puzzle part is that there are many ways to use them. This is the only game we’ve ever felt compelled to review. We hope the developers have created or will create more. Id buy another in a heartbeat – but youve set the bar high now, so make it well.

This was a well made game. It is so much different than anything out there. Not too hard and just so much fun. We were able to finish it and wish they would add more chapters. And of course Im willing to pay.

The effects in this game were good .. The story line was sad but what an awesome adventure… Love it.. Our only downfall of this game was the controls… GET DIRECTIONAL BUTTONS… The joystick was all over & made it hard to play… We almost deleted it 2s bc of it… All in all the game was great…

We have really enjoyed this game so far, the storyline is entertaining and the fantasy aspect holds your attention. The graphics, although not great at times, really didnt bother us, and overall the game was pretty enough compared to other games. Its also just a really sweet tale about two brothers on a quest to save their father! That being said, the controls are terrible, and the game is pretty buggy. We had to restart at a checkpoint several times because the characters straight up didnt move when we wanted them to move. The joysticks are also badly placed and it doesnt seem like there is any way to move them, only to make them bigger or smaller, or more opaque. We wish we could leave 5 stars, but for what we paid, it doesnt quite reach the bar!

First of all the controls are terrible! We can barely even make the brothers walk smoothly without having one of them walk into a wall! Second of all the graphics are horrible! Whenever the weird ugly troll with mushrooms growing out of his pale un tanned back climbs up a wall you can see his hands glitching a lil. Now to the positive stuff. We love the levels and the sense of nature! The game just never gets boring! During some parts the game is just kinda a stress reliever, for example canoeing through the smooth beautiful water and walking through the beautiful woods. Besides the controls and graphics this game is amazing! We highly recommend this game!

We got stuck at the windmill jumping section and kept jumping off finally figured out to do it manually by pressing outside the controller above it slightly to do a manual drop.

We had a good bit of fun playing through this relatively inexpensive mobile game. If you enjoy puzzle solving games that arent over the top in complexity, we think this one is a good choice. In our opinion, the ending was well done. We dont want to spoil it for anyone who may read this prior to playing, but we like what they did.

Please adapt resolutions for new iPad Pro.

This game has an amazing story. If it had controller support, it would be perfect.

It’s no challenge. But the view and animation is great.

We love this game very much but we dont know how to do the last achievement we’ve looked online it says nothing about it so please come back and answer our question thank you.

Game still runs with borders on 2018 12.9 iPad Pro even though update notes that it was optimized for latest iOS devices….

Graphics are good the storyline seems interesting and well written but no way we personally could enjoy that game with its control system. Its a loss for me.

Its a good game but when we try to get off at the windmill it wont let us so now we cant complete the game wow.

Played on PC with a controller. The game was great. Would love to enjoy this on iOS, but the lack of controller support ruins it for us.

So disappointing by this game.

We loved this game….. Till we got to the windmills. The one brother that has to cross, WONT STOP JUMPING BACK ON AFTER we GET HIM OFF!!!!!! Immediately regretting spending money on this…

Stuck in the troll cave, zip line wont move. Stuck at the windmill, bridge becomes inverted. Screw this crap. Waste of time and money. Wont buy anything from this developer again.

We originally wrote a stellar review and now we take it back. We have reached a point in the game in which the boys are in a water cave. There is a T bar they are to jump on and move along the rail. We have tried ever button push and combination and nothing happens, they just hang there. They dont move! We can no longer continue the game.

Just got our iPad mini 5 and it shows its compatible under compatibility on the game page, but alas, the graphics are ALL screwed up. The water is completely brown with zero wave effects, the lightning effects looks bad, textures all rigid and draw distance makes the whole thing look fake. The game looks better on our iPad mini 4. The issue is this, you guys claimed to do an update to the game so it plays better and is optimized for newer iPads and the the newer graphics chips. Well clearly the A12 chip is just too powerful and the game cant handle it. So you guys either need to do another update to fix or remove from the compatibility section.

We dont understand a word they are saying. No option for English!? This should of been stated upfront. We just want our money back.

Dont get us wrong this story is riveting and is so well done. However as another reviewer who played this game on the same device as ours, their iPad mini 5, mentioned, the graphics and rendering of images are messed up, and it stutters. This device uses a A12 chip so there is no excuse, it just hasnt been optimized to work on newer devices. However it ruined the experience terribly even though it is such an amazing story. Without spoiling, the levels near the end were in one word jacked up completely at times. It would show character models walking in thin air because the ground wasnt rendering and was invisible. As with other objects including walls and objects you had to climb. Even an important character. We had to guess our way through. It was horrendous. Please fix so we can replay and completely enjoy this game as it was intended, and we can give this game the rating it deserves.

We love this game to death. It was one of the first playthroughs we ever watched and we’ve had it on all of our previous apple products with no problems. When we got an iPhone X, we really wanted to redownload and play this game, but to our disappointment, there was no sound. We tried uninstalling the app, adjusting the in game volume settings, turning off our device, resetting our device, even using different headphones to see if ours were just broken but nothing worked. The support center we got sent to was not helpful at all and there were no auto generated questions addressing this issue. Am we the only one experiencing this? Is there a way to fix it? This is our favorite game and we really want to play it so Im just very upset.

We actually stopped in the middle to write this review because we were so disappointed. This game has been fantastic, engaging, and entertaining, UNTIL… The part where you have to swing the brothers by a rope around a cliff. There were NO instructions or references to anything like this in the tutorial at the start, or the gameplay thus far. We actually thought it was some kind of bug at first, until, in our frustration, we accidentally made one brother fall so he was dangling. We went to setting, and looked at how to use the controls. Nothing. We even googled a walkthrough because we were enjoying it so much until this point. It took us like 40 minutes and god knows how many tries to figure it out. You have to touch the screen (not the joystick,which moves all over the place anyway) and we figured it out by trial and error. In our frustration we have given 3 stars, but we will come back when we finish and give another rating. If this game keeps going like the first part, it is 5 stars all the way. But these iOS controls are NOT intuitive, and some minimal guidance would make the experience a million times better. Rant over Now we’ve finished, and we changed to 5 stars because we cannot give 10 stars. Fantastic game despite small issues with controls.

We just loved the game. The story is so amazing and beautiful. Once we started we couldnt stop playing it.

This game honestly made us cry we love it great job.

One of the best game in Apple Store.

This game is very very beautiful of the most beautiful games that have passed in our life and the story is very wonderful and adventure >< why the game ends this way.

The graphics are really detailed and the story is interesting. Overall it’s just a really fun game and it’s worth the money.

The game deals with teamwork and a lot of logic. It was emotional, and the graphics, for a mobile game especially, were great. We have NO regrets spending money on this, though we did get through it faster than we expected.

This is one of the best mobile games we’ve ever played! The graphics are great, the story is very engaging, and its a great adventure that keeps your interest and makes you want to keep playing. The navigation is very different; you have to use two virtual joysticks to control both brothers. When you get the hang of it, its very easy to use. We wish they would come out with a version two, but with the way this one ended, we dont know if they can.

This is a game that has an amazing story plot, astonishing graphics which can be seen from different angles, and a one of the most easy yet convenient control. The puzzles in the game need some thinking, but are not difficult. Plus, there are tones of tones of tiny details that congregate to make this game one of the best. We have to emphasize again: this is an amazing game that’s underrated for no reason. We FEEL SORRY FOR THE PRODUCERS AND CREATORS OF THIS MASTERPIECE. THEY MUST’VE SPENT A LOT OF TIME TO MAKE THIS GAME WONDERFUL, BUT….sigh :((((((((

When we first bought this app we thought it would be a fraud but when we played it we were like woah and there is one question is this a two player game or no.
