The Broforce is the most awesome side scrolling, action hero homage I have ever seen and played in my life! From the names, changed to avoid paying licenses, to the trophies everything in this game reeks of nostalgia. Spanning many decades of action heroes, the game includes 8 bit sprites of mainstream characters in all their glory.
The levels remind me of Contra with a hit of the tongue in cheek humor of Metal Slug. As you assess the color threats and graduate from saving your city to saving the world from terrorists, it is hard to not feel like you are a part of Team America. Give the devil hell, kid! The beauty of the game is that you can play local coop or online up to four players. When appropriate, it can be fun for the whole family!
This online download is worth its money in gold. If you dont believe me, check out the list of all the characters on the wiki page. They have female heroines too! The names are so clever and straightforward you will know which characters are parodied/honored. Similar to Pokémon, you won’t alwant to stop until you save/catch them all!
