At first blush, it seems like your run-of-the-mill side-scrolling shoot em up. Like many indie games these days, the pixelated graphics draw retro inspiration. The game mechanics similarly borrow from classics of yesteryear.
However, after several minutes of playing Broforce, it becomes obvious that there is something special about this game. The over-the-top gratuitous violence imitates 80s and 90s Hollywood action movies, both paying homage and satirizing the genre simultaneously.
Even more awesome is the liberal use of memorable Hollywood action heroes like the Terminator and Rambo, as well as cult favorites like Ash from Evil Dead.
Broforce is not even technically out yet (the game is a Steam Early Access title) but it is better in its unfinished state than most games that have already completed the development cycle. Content is constantly being added in the form of new game modes, single-player levels, and “bros” — the action heroes that you play as in the game. Broforce promises to be even more awesome once the final version launches later this year
