Gun Bros revives the glory of those old arcades where you scrolled in a map shooting everything down and everything sparkles and shines and blows magnificently up. In fact, everything in Gun Bros is blinding: lava melts, ammo's made of plasma, things explode willing or not and so on. To put it another way, graphics and sound are excellent, just as we expected from Glu Mobile (and a heavy download, too).
Gameplay is very good, with a smooth touch response that allows subtle moves and strategies. Or at least, all the strategies you can imagine in the midst of a scrolling arcade, of course.
Gun Bros has lots of weapons and features that would be too long to list. The biggest and more powerful can only be bought through an in-app purchase, but it seems that they aren't needed to enjoy the game. You can add Facebook friends so the AI can help you and they can earn experience at the same time. This Facebook feature is far more interesting than you could think at the beginning and adds a new look to the social component of shoot'em ups (mmm...can you see what we mean?). It's beyond "look for neighbours", it's like "can I borrow your character for a while?" You can also lend "yourself" to your friends to help them.
Great game. Fully recommended, specially if you don't own a last generation i-device and can't enjoy Gun Bros 2.Tags: gun bros 3g.

Developer's original description available hereMAJOR UPDATE! NOW WITH MULTIPLAYER DEATHMATCH!!!
Don’t be a T.O.O.L… Enlist with the GUN BROS today!
The Freakishly Rugged Advanced Genetics Galactic Enforcement Division (AKA F.R.A.G.G.E.D) specializes in the development and deployment of superhuman special agents. Headed since its formation by the brilliant soldier-turned-scientist Mother Gun, its current roster consists of only two active field operatives, code-named Percy and Francis Gun. Their lifelong mission: to protect the cosmos from the Tyrannical Oppressors of Life known as T.O.O.L.
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. Most recently, they’ve set their sights on harvesting the rare element Xplodium in an effort to create even more powerful weapons to enslave the universe… But not if the GUN BROS have anything to do about it!
