This game is really good.The controls
- while it can be difficult to get used to, after a while it just starts to feel like second nature. Each thumbstick (left and right) on the controller controls one of the two brothers, and each matching trigger is that brother's "action" button. While this game would be incredibly
easy if it were played with two people (each with one controller), it becomes an interesting and rewarding mental exercise trying to control both characters yourself.The story
- also very good. The characters don't speak (really) but talk in a kind of "Sim-ish" language. The developers put a lot of effort into portraying the characters through their body language and tone rather than speech directly. The game takes place in a world that could best be described as a "grimm-style" fairy tale.Difficulty
- although you can
die, the game is super generous with it's checkpoints, so it would be difficult to get frustrated with the game. The main focus here is on solving puzzles and some light platforming.Achievements
- another interesting idea well executed here. None of the game's 12 achievements will be unlocked during normal game play. Every single one of them is optional, and rewards the player for "going off the beaten path" and/or doing something interesting in the game. For best results, don't play through with a cheat guide. These are best discovered on your own.Length
- I played for a little over an hour and got to the third section of the game, which I believe is almost half way maybe? HowLongToBeat says the game should take between 3-4 hours to complete.
Bottom line - buy this game.
