Not a bad game per se, but nothing particularly good about it, either. Platforming is pretty basic, controls seem a bit off, visuals are nice but not really outstanding, being able to use custom music is nice but the stage elements that depend on the music don't always work well with that. This game is bundled often and I'd say go for it in a cheap bundle, but I wouldn't buy it on its own.

The game is pretty normal and there are many games that are basically the same but the graphics are amazing and the levels designs are pretty sweet . Also , there are some nice musics in the game where you can listen even when you are not playing the game . If you like those type of relaxation game , this is one of those game but i suggest buying it during discount as the regular price is a bit high .

Pure frustration,good concept but not good enough execution,randomized traps that depends on music without any discernable pattern.

some levels demand perfect execution of moves,irrelevant of traps/music,too bad the controls are not provided for it since it does at best 90% of the commands issued,and that 10 really does matter.

In the end,if it wasn't for playfire I wouldn't even play it again.

Music game that has nothing to do with music...
Without power-ups it's unplayable.

Rush Bros is a hardcore platformer taking after the likes of Super Meat Boy, but fails to understand any aspect of why people enjoy these type of games. Precise controls, level consistency, and a feeling of fairness all elude this game and that makes it impossible recommend.

The game's gimmick is that parts of the level move with the beat of the current music track playing. It's an interesting idea but one that shouldn't have gone past the prototyping phrase, where it should have been discovered how badly it works out in practice. This includes traps and not every object responds to every beat, which when mixed together with the sub-par beat detection makes this movement almost impossible to accurately predict. This also causes certain songs to make certain levels ridiculously hard, if not impossible. A few of the later levels take this mechanic to such extremes, I firmly believe that they are some of the worst levels ever included in any game.

The other main issue with the level design is invisible traps. Pretty much every level has spikes, but some of them in some levels will shoot at you when you get close. There's no way to tell which ones will do this. Spikes will even shoot at you from off screen with no warning. What this unfortunately results in is rather than skill-based platforming, you simply have to memorize the levels to do well. That's not real difficulty, it's poor design.

These problems combined with sloppy controls can make this game very frustrating and it's not hard to see why over 90% of the reviews are negative. While I did enjoy the music the game has to offer, it would be better to save your sanity and pass on this one.

The truth is that the BGM will entertain you and it will be really fun to play with a controller, really really fun.

if you're looking for a hard super meat boy-like game with decent tracks (some are pretty good) and colorful, well-drawn levels backgrounds , you can give rush bros a try ,
although it has one of the worst things for a platforming game - laggy controls , it still manages to be challenging enough and dare i say satisfying once you master a level and finish it in a new record triggering that achievement notification (managed to get 21 achivements through 3 days for playfire rewards, if i play it more i'm sure i can get at least +40) ,

give it a try if you're into rage, hard games , maybe not with the 10$ price tag so wait for a sale (in case you haven't grabbed it for free at GMG promotion)

Got this for free and it still wasn't worth the money. This game is too busy trying to orchestrate an orgy between Audiosurf and Super Meat Boy to actually be good or fun or not absolutely homosexual. Kill yourself.

Competition

70/100 Explosive mixture of "Sonic" and "Super Meat Boy" as it turned out is a delicious cocktail, which bewitching its complexity and at the same time so affordable, with a gorgeous selection of electronic music* (which can compete with soundtrack from "The Orange Box" in "Audiosurf") and the ability to import your own music for online play with a friend without any problems, thereby outdoing "Beat Hazard". However, the price of the game somewhat overstated.

* At the moment, unfortunately, without songs by "Infected Mushroom" and opportunity to play as the duo at the appropriate level.

Rush Bros. is my personal favorite game I have on Steam. It is fast-paced racing fun, and when I threw myself into getting those last few achievements, when I died I felt like it was my fault. The graphics are nothing special, but this game is based around racing through an obstacle course where the obstacles are reacting to the music. A wonderful idea, with the controls meeting that idea creating a fast-paced good time, whether you are alone or with friends. I can wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone.
