There’s a new fight game on the Store today and we’ve been playing it for the last few hours. Called ‘Brotherhood of Violence’ the game is developed by realtech VR and it’s quite impressive visually (and hilarious for the in-game dialogue).
The game goes for $1.99 with a free trial and we strongly recommend you take out. Brotherhood weighs in at just over 220MB, which isn’t too bad considering the game play involved and it should give fans of Virtua Fighter and similar street violent games something to cheer about. Indeed, the game is a ton of fun if only because of the aforementioned combo of great graphics and laugh-out-loud cut scenes.
What makes Brotherhood of Violence so special is that it was simultaneously released on iOS, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 with Android and Mac OS evidently coming later. That makes one of the first times we’ve seen a developer jump on the dual Windows 8/Windows Phone 8 gaming potential as a reason to code over one for Android (plus games that cost money don’t do as well on Android, where most things are free with ad support).
From the game’s description:
“Brotherhood of Violence puts your fighting skills to the test with stunning 3D graphics, multiple fighting disciplines, and more than 400 ever evolving fighters that learn through artificial intelligence. Battle your way through 30 environments to defeat punks, ninja, Yakuza and more. Watch out for the Big Boss. He has it in for you and his skills are unmatched!
You're a former member of an elite brotherhood of assassins. The problem is, with this brotherhood there's no such thing as a "former" member. You knew the Big Boss would try to drag you back in, but you never thought he's kidnap your brother to get to you. Now you must follow the way of the warrior to find him and bring him home.”
Indeed, with Galactic Reign landing this week, this game and a few others, it almost looks like the dual W8/WP8 developer dream may be catching on. Of course it’s still too early to tell and these games could be exceptions but so far, we like where this is going.
Check out the video above of our hands on with Brotherhood of Violence, in addition to the teaser trailer. You can then download the game from here in the Store (Windows Phone 8 only). Thanks, Jabid21, for the tip!
