Glu Mobile has been on a roll recently with many successful game launches on the App Store. After ngmoco, Glu seems to be the next established game publisher to take the freemium game model by storm.
Gun Bros is the latest 3D action shooter from Glu which is available for free for iPhone and iPod touch. The game is based on an interesting back story and integrates with Game Center.
You are a part of The Freakishly Rugged Advanced Genetics Galactic Enforcement Division (AKA F.R.A.G.G.E.D.) and your task is to protect the universe from the Tyrannical Oppressors of Life known as T.O.O.L.
The game features two characters to choose from (Percy Gun or Francis Gun) and then you are ready to eliminate the baddies using dual stick controls. It’s great to see that Glu Mobile has invested a lot of time in paying attention to details. The 3D graphics are outstanding and I really liked the level design as it stays true to the overall galactic theme.
You always enter the battlefield with two players, you control your chosen Bro and the other is controlled by the AI which helps you in clearing waves after waves of enemies. As you continue to annihilate the Tyrannical Oppressors of Life you can earn Xplodium (an unstable ore) which you must convert in the chambers to get coins which are used to buy weapons and power-ups. The game offers different chambers which increase the conversion rate of Xplodium so that you can earn more coins.
Gun Bros offers Game Center integration so you can fight with your friends character and take advantage of their upgraded Bro with powerful weapons.
The game offers a lot of content with many powerful upgrades and also allows you to buy coins and war bucks via in app purchase so that you can quickly upgrade and advance to new levels. You don’t necessarily need to buy any coins unless you are impatient to get the more powerful weapons or facing difficulty in clearing certain levels.
Overall, Gun Bros is one of the best freemium titles on the App Store (View in iTunes), get it today and be prepared to get addicted!
