Excerpt: Rush Bros. is a brave new PC platformer than tries to blend music and platforming in such a way that I can only compare to those few levels in Rayman Origins and the new Rayman Legends game where the music not only drives your actions but your actions actually contribute to the composition of the...
Summary: I enjoyed Rush Bros, but I feel like I could have enjoyed it so much more. There's just something missing, and I can't quite put my finger on it. That said, if you're looking for an unique rhythm-based game, Rush Bros is one to watch.
Pros: Tight platforming, Custom soundtracks
Cons: Low replayability, Same traps over and over again
There is unrest in the chorus, there is trouble with the keys

Summary: Went wrong somewhere along the line. The original idea might have promise, but in practice the game has failed. Threatens to be interesting sometimes, but rarely. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide
Excerpt: From Xyla Entertainment and Digital Tribe Entertainment, I'd like to introduce to you guys, Rush Bros.! A well thought out platformer that centers around music, and the beat--as well as beating out the competition.
Excerpt: Rush Bros initial stand-out feature is the bright color pallet and the way the music blends seamlessly into the gameplay. Stages feel like pulses that slip between beats of each song, some changing more violently than others.
Conclusion: With a music system that transcended the soundtrack, Rush Bros. would have been immediately appealing. Sadly, what looks good on paper does not always translate into great gameplay. Stretched out levels, punishing design, and imprecise controls make for an experience best avoided.
Summary: Grab a friend and prepare for a few hours of frantic competitive racing while navigating treacherous platform filled levels. While there isn't much for single players there is enough to keep you and a friend entertained for a while.
Excerpt: I love a good indie game, there is something refreshing about a game that costs just a few pounds, but still packs a fair few hours of original entertainment, it reminds me of my youth and being able to visit the arcades for a few games on weird and wonderful titles that didn’t always make it to...
Excerpt: People love platform games. It’s been true from Sonic and Mario, to N+ and Super Meat Boy , the simple level-leaping, left to right adventure is a beloved staple of the gaming diet. So how can you improve and re-incentivise this idea? Why not make it a competition?
