Expendabros is a 2D action shooter, developed to promote the (at the time) upcoming movie, The Expendables 3
. The overrall game is very short (approx. 1hr), but that is to be expected as it basically acts as a free demo to Broforce
The plot is loosely based on that of the film, it revolves around your team of seven "Expendabros" who are trying hunt down the notorious arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks
. Not that you exactly care about the plot, I mean you are only playing the game for destroying everything you see.
Death is pretty swift, only takes one bullet to take you down, same rules apply to most of your enemies. It's pretty tempting to destroy the entire map but it may or may not prove difficult for you to traverse it. Soon you will begin to realise the repetitive nature of the gameplay. Everything is relatively similar, shoot guns and thow knives at the baddies, good ol' run&gun gameplay. Even though it is pretty much the same (apart the two boss fights and a minor flexing cut scene) it still manages to entice you to finish the game. I would like to point out that some more of the flexing type gameplay would be nice, as it lets you take a short break from the
The pixelated graphics are nice. One of my favourite parts of this game was the excitement you had as you got to see all the different tricks that the cast had when you'd unlock them, flamethrowers, knives, etc. And the replayability of this game isn't great. I mean, I've 13hrs going through it so it was good enough for me, but that was only because I was pretty hyped to buy Broforce. Definately enjoyable to play, free and fun, it's worth your time.
In case you didn't bother to read any of that:Pros
+Enjoyable unlocking characters
+Effectively serves as a demo for Broforce
+Jam-packed with testosterone
