WWB 8 CHAIN BROACTION

You hear explosions above and you see earth itself falling down on your head. he only question is, "Is there any exploding paraphernalia that's going to fall on me?" Your theme for this Weekend Workshop Brodown is:

CHAIN BROACTION

Make chain reactions in your leve!l So the first thing you might be thinking is "Propane tanks! Awesome!" Think outside the propane tank, bro. Barrels, traps, falling boulders, mook doors, scaffolding, huts or even throw a suicide mook in to get things started (but propane is fully allowed).
VOTE ON GAMEPLAY AND THE CHAIN REACTIONS! Make it fully loaded and ready to explode, but don't break the game dudes.

Add WWB 8 in front of your level name!

The Expendabros - Free Download

The Expendabros have assembled and set their sights on the forces of ruthless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks in the forests of Eastern Europe. Battle through ten full-throttle missions set amongst the picturesque tree tops and the absurdly dangerous lumber mills teeming with enemy soldiers, excessive artillery, and inconveniently placed circular saws. Rescue your brothers in arms and play as seven different legendary soldiers – each with their own unique weapons and special attacks – with up to four players at once in local multiplayer co-op mode.

About This Game



When evil threatens the world, the world calls on Broforce - an under-funded, over-powered paramilitary organization dealing exclusively in excessive force. Brace your loins with up to four players to run ‘n’ gun as dozens of different bros and eliminate the opposing terrorist forces that threaten our way of life. Unleash scores of unique weapons and set off incredible chain reactions of fire, napalm, and limbs in the name of freedom.






  • The Broforce: Deliver your own brand of shock and awe with dozens of bros each with their own unique weaponry and special attacks designed to dispatch freedom across the world.
  • Bro-Op & Deathmatch: Battle terrorism with up to four players in cooperative mode or sever ties with your bros and face each other in several bombastic competitive modes.
  • Explosion Run: Join up with other bros to tackle these unique time attack levels under the pressure of exploding terrains and mass chaos.
  • Fully Destructible Everything: Destructible terrain opens up a slew of strategic options while the abundance of Exploding Red Barrels of Justice™ can literally level the playing field with one shot.
  • Level Editor: Design your own playground of destruction with a robust level editor and become the envy of all the other bros by sharing them online. Browse through scores of custom user created levels and complete them to rate their Bro-ness.




The following features and content are planned in future updates via Early Access. Visit the Steam Community Hub, Broforce Forums, or follow Free Lives (@Free_Lives) on Twitter for news and requests for feedback on future updates.

  • New Bros: Broforce is always looking for a few good bros to join the team. Free Lives will create a plethora of new bros and are always interested in hearing your ideas of powerful heroes that can bare the burden of being a bro.
  • New Missions: New missions will be added to the world map through development and will extend to new environments and locales.
  • Tweaks and Polish: Broforce is pretty rocking now but Free Lives will be iterating, tweaking, and polishing to see what works and what needs more time in the oven. Feedback welcome, bros!
  • Explosions 3.0: What is Broforce without better explosions? Ongoing revisions and additions to the explosions are tantamount to fulfilling Broforce's destiny.
  • Sound Design and Music: Continuing work to revise and add new music and sound design to celebrate freedom in your ears.

This game has suicide bombers, evil demon businessmen, gargantuan robot machines of death, xenomorphs and facehuggers.

And it isn't even finished yet.

You must play Broforce.

If you've played console games before the year 2000 you will fall in love with the nostalgic pixelated platformer style. If you're too young for that, well, you'll still love the fast paced explosive craziness. Most people I know would appreciate both, and you likely will too.

No matter what type of gamer you are, this game is awesome, fun, and totally worth playing. If recognize any 80's or 90's action hero you can't help but laugh as they spawn into the field.

Get it now -- and don't wait for it to be released from Early Access. Unless of course you're reading this and it already has been.

So many early access games aren't worth it... You spend money and the games are broke, boring, lame and never get finished. Let me put anyone pondering this as a potential purchase at ease... this game feels finished. It works great and I have never seen a glitch or bug. And that is just the start of the good news... the game is also every bit as crazy and fun as you think it is. Just watch some youtube videos of people playing it if you need to be persuaded.

For the price, I cannot think of a more fun game to spend money on. Buy it.

-Side note, there is a free "Expendabros" expansion :)

Early Access Review
It's an unholy fusion of Konami's Contra, a sprinkle of minecraft, and a double-shot of Stephen Colbert. It's a simultaneous commentary on the rut the big game industry is stuck in, and US foreign policy. It's a fast-paced train of unashamed challenge that will make you focus or die. And it will hook your feeble human brain with the same tricks as the aforementioned AAA ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, in an exquisitely polished and self-aware way. Prepare your manly-hole.

This game is nothing but straight carnage on a simple, 2d platform shooter. While the point of the game is simple, actually doing it may prove to be a challenge.

FREEDOM!

Take control of your tiny pixelated action hero BRO and LIBERATE the world from TERRORISM and maybe CORRUPT EVIL CORPORATE PEOPLE depending on who that red dude with the horns and the business suit is (could it be... SATAN?!). LIBERATE the forests. LIBERATE the jungles. LIBERATE the villages. LIBERATE the cities. LIBERATE the xenomorph hives.

Oh, you basically annihilated the level because your massively overpowered BRO GUNS blew up all the terrain? GREAT. You had to destroy the village in order to save it? AWESOME. Let EXPLOSIONS ring like FREEDOM all across the land.

Buy this game because it is fun on steroids and to strike a blow for LIBERTY and AMERICA THE FREE WORLD AMERICA. If you don't, you're clearly a Commie TERRORIST.

***

In all seriousness, it's a platforming shoot-em-up with destructable everything and chained explosions that can really scratch that arcade itch. It doesn't take itself seriously at all and with levels taking about five minutes if you happen to take your time and try to play smart (rather than just blowing everything up, which can be fun), there's no problem with it being arcade-hard at times since you never lose that much progress. The one absurdly tough boss they had--the infamous massive helicopter--they nerfed, which is kinda sad, because when you beat that thing you felt a real feeling of achievement. The pacing is actually pitch-perfect because while frenetic explosions-a-go-go happen a lot you can often times hang back and decide whether or not you really do want to rush in where angels fear to tread (of course you do).

This game's only gone from strength to strength in its development. It built some solid platforming fundamentals first--even the Brototype was absurdly fun--and has added new levels, tweaked graphics, actual recognition from the action hero community, different play modes, and a joyously over-the-top announcer type who can scream with you when you inevitably blow yourself up in some insane chain reaction. The developers are engaged with the community--often in ALL CAPS OF AWESOME--and the semi-regular themed level "competitions" are great.

All this being said, it is unapologetically an arcade game. There is no plot to speak of. The game is not intelligent or particularly witty, nor is it trying to be. You will fail, a lot, and then you will succeed gloriously. If that's not your cuppa, then wave off, though I'd recommend watching a friend play since it certainly is colorful and beautiful in its pixel-art way and can be a treat to watch.

In very rare circumstances so much can be going on that the game will actually slow down. This somehow fails to be a problem because then it just feels like slow-mo in an action film, so it can't even be called a bug (plus, you'll either survive and it'll speed up or you'll die and the level will reset, so it's hardly a big deal).
