Gun Bros is finally available on the Windows Phone Marketplace, long awaited since May when we first posted about it. This game should be familiar to many of you, you have either heard of it before or played it on other platforms. It’s absolutely free to play on the Windows Phone too! This is a paid downloadable content game, if you’re wondering why it’s free. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it however; Gun Bros is a full feature game, paying for content is just extra, giving you better gear and weapons, but not necessary at all to enjoy and play the full game.
The game is simple to pick up and play, using a twin-thumbstick setup you guide your manic shooter around the level to survive and shoot all your enemies. It wouldn’t be called “Gun Bros” for nothing, you will always have an AI companion fighting along your side throughout the entire game. Hence, your brother (that’s what the Bros part stands for by the way). The twist with Gun Bros (which makes it all the better) is that you can process “Xplodium” and turn it into gold. Gold is then used to purchase better weapons and gear.
Gun Bros also has a unique multiplayer feature which allows you and your friends to hire each other’s “Bros” to fight along your side. Doing this will also reward the hired player’s character. Your friend does not need to be online at all to hire their character. We wish the Gun Bros feature worked with more than just Xbox LIVE friends, it would be great if it somehow integrated from other platforms, and even the browser version of the game. We know that’s asking for a little too much though, maybe with Gun Bros 2.
Gun Bros is published by Glu, with an initial version of 188.8.131.52, a hefty download size of 185 MB, and the following supported languages: Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, and русский. Gun Bros is absolutely free on the Windows Phone Marketplace, no need to trial, and there is no reason not to download this superb game.
We do have one small complaint, I tested the application out on my personal Samsung Focus and the two first loading screens you come across when you start the game up do take ages to go through. I noticed the same is happening on some other devices showing off the game on the Internet, maybe Glu can work on some load time optimization. That, or things will of course be better with Windows Phone 8 devices later this year.

Like a super-powered fungus gone haywire, the evil T.O.O.L organization has grown from the dankest levels of the criminal underworld to spread its own brand of malevolent funk to every corner of the galaxy.
