Ratings and Reviews
Plenty of games cast you as an outgoing hero, exploring the wilds with sword in hand - but nobody does it quite like Superbrothers. Stunning art, a haunting soundtrack and poetic storytelling combine to create a magical, mythical mystery that stays with you long after you put it down.
I bought this game right when it came out and still think it’s one of the most visually striking games I’ve ever played. Great gameplay and an engaging story that you have to unravel through exploration. If this came out today, I’d still buy it right away. Highly recommended!
Only gripe I have is that it’s not iPhone X and beyond ready. It plays, just won’t use the whole screen. Also wish they’d port it to Apple TV.
Very charming adventure title.
This has a really strong atmosphere, with beautiful music and pixel art, and the way everything around you reacts to your taps never gets old. The story came across as a touch lightweight to me, but I was surprisingly moved in the darker final chapter, and the dialogue is pretty consistently amusing. Simply wandering these gorgeous environments was a delight, and the combat is serviceable if somewhat rough around the edges. The faux-3D perspective is a bit hard to read, but that’s a problem less often than you might expect. I had problems in the third chapter, where you’re supposed to change the moon phases to impact one of the game’s two worlds, but it kept resetting when I walked in the wrong direction, requiring me to repeat the previous steps over and over again. The puzzles are sound based, and I generally struggled to figure out the solutions, but they feed into the atmosphere. Mostly I love the peculiar combination of irreverence and serenity. This game is lovely.
