Rush Brothers is a side scroller à la Knytt series with a knack for speed and precise platforming, a mix that sometimes performs well, other times lets you wanna throw your controller/keyboard off your room with the whole console or computer.

The game has been marketed as a competitive "musically-driven" platformer and I could agree with the former adjective since the Steam multiplayer allows "challengers" to hop in your game and play, and frankly, it's mainly not a single player experience the one granted by Rush Bros. However, aside some neat dance beats and speaker-like pulsating backgrounds it doesn't seem to me like music has ANY influence in the gameplay, whatsoever, as I was expecting something along the lines of Amplitude or Rez (the dawn of the PlayStation 2) -- at least THAT level of interaction.

But nope. We're stuck with a platformer where you can't trust springs or else you'll likely land on some sharp spikes and I'm sure that if Sonic the Hedgehog were in this game he would sue Xyla Entertainment for character abuse, and most puzzle sections throughout the levels can be pretty long and frustrating -- something that doesn't sound so "fast-paced" after all, let alone played with other people on the interwebs.

Other than the blatant lies we were gently offered by marketing, however, this isn't a game I would consider abysmal after all. In fact, I liked the art style and I think it's pretty neat, something I haven't quite seen in other indie titles (Knytt Underground comes close but it was released AFTER Rush Bros). Not terribly original, but it's surely an upside. ...and that's it, really. I contributed to the game soundtrack as Forgotten Dawn back in the days, it was a good experience, but honestly, I always muted the in-game music. I preferred silence and the lonely game sound effects over the generally ear-shattering OST.

So overall, this game is pretty subpar compared to other platformers around and it had plenty of potential at hand for becoming a truly engaging musically-driven experience, with or without friends in your lobby.

It's fairly difficult to write too deeply about this game as it is fairly simple. Not in a bad way or in a manner which suggests a lack of depth, but rather that there are many music based games out there and this fades into the crowd which is in no way reflecting badly on the developers as this is a very difficult genre to deploy something different in. Redeeming factors would be the mainstream but highly useful ability to port your own music into the game (which transforms this into an enjoyable timewaster), the aesthetics are not unresplendant of Electronic Super Joy and so are fairly enjoyable. The gameplay itself has its challenging moments and there is a certain amount of depth to some of the puzzles later on as you progress. There is an element of replayability in the form of timed runs, competing against other steam users or just trying to complete the modest amount of achievements. Overall I'd still recommend this game as it is a steal if you can get it in a bundle or at a reduced price, and the game offers some enjoyable playthrough, 6.5/10

Rush Bros is an interesting running race game. You can run solo or compete with other online player. It would be very fun and enjoyable if you can find runner online to play with you. Unfortunately the online browser is vacant almost all the time like many other multi-player games on Steam. That means you have no choice but to play alone most of the time and I must say that is VERY VERY BORING. When this situation happens, I always tell myself I am making the charity.

Rush Bros is a pretty addicting race platformer, which lets you race against friends or other people on the internet. It is challenging, but far from impossible.

First of, this game has a main gimmick: music. You can import your own music into this game or just play one of the music within the game as background music for the stage. The fun thing is that Rush Bros applies your music to the stage. Some obstacles, including spikes and pillars, go along with the beat of your song. That means that it can be used in your advantage or in your disadventage. When you are playing online though, the opponent has his own music, and therefore also his own obstacles.

As I've said before, Rush Bros is a challenging game. But that is mainly for the achievement hunters or the competitive online players. Whenever you die, you respawn just before the point of death. You have infinite lives, so you don't have to worry about dieing. This also goes for online play.

Me, being a speedrunner, absolutely love the stage designs and eventually reach the goal as fast as possible. I myself do not care much for achievements, but it's a nice aim nonetheless.

However, this game is mainly for online play. If you don't have anyone to play with, this game is less fun than it is supposed to be. Also, you might want to use a controller, as it is clearly not made for keyboard use.

Rush bros is a fun and entertaining game, but I would advice buying this game when it is on sale. Otherwise, it is not worth it.
