Rush Bros.: PC Game Review
Two DJs enter, one leaves! Challenge your friends to a platforming race complete with lasers and power ups!
Recently, Steam introduced Greenlight, which allowed indie game developers to publish games on their own. Rush Bros. is one of the first games to come out from the Steam Greenlight program and it rocks! The game is a platformer, similar to N, Super Meat Boy, and other games. Run and jump through 2D levels while avoiding traps and try to get the fastest time. For old school and hardcore gamers, there is nothing better.

Moving to the Beat
One of the things that sets Rush Bros. apart from other platformers is the music. The music in the game is amazing and really gets you into the groove of the game. Even better, you get to tap into your inner DJ and select your own mixes to blast in the speakers while you run. Certain traps and features on the levels even seem to move and pulse with the music that you select, whether it is a tune that is already included in the game or one that you picked yourself.
King of Pop
The other defining feature of Rush Bros. is the multi-player. While you can still try to top the leaderboards in singleplayer, you can also challenge a friend to a straight up race on any level. While you play, you can see the ghost of your friend running along with you. Additionally, there are power-ups that can give you an edge or make the level harder for your opponent. Overall, Rush Bros. is fast pace and fun. There is no real penalty for dying and you can keep trying a level over and over again or just move on to the next level. New levels are constantly coming out and the game is pretty cheap.
ESRB Rating: E for Everyone
