Play OverviewPlay Overview

Broforce Forever (2015) is a running, jumping and shooting game where you play characterised familiar masculine heroes who use excessive force to defeat enemies. It's a frantic, brash adventure with many weapons and characters to play around with. It's a familiar side-scrolling run-and-gun formula but adds a sandbox feel with the sheer range of characters and ability to bash through the terrain.

You play by running through levels, attacking enemies and liberating areas by ridding them of terrorists. In areas protected by baddies, you can swap characters to access each one's special ability or signature weapon. Half the fun here is the diminutive characterisation of movie stars: Rambro, Bro Hard, Bro Max, Broheart, and Bronan the Brobarian.

As you progress, things can quickly become overwhelming if you aren't careful, so it's important to use each character's strengths to the fullest and blow up the terrain to put the enemy in bad positions. Boss encounters can be challenging too, with unique attack patterns to throw you off.

The result is a joyously over-the-top challenge where explosions and quips are the order of the day. It's a challenging game, but equally silly which makes the whole thing feel more approachable.
