Dragon bros - gif title

Play as a dragon teenager, shoot crazy robots and save your mom from an alien planet!

Dragon Bros is an amazing Run & Gun with gorgeous pixel art graphics and a punchy soundtrack. It finds its roots in Metal Slug, Broforce and Super Time Force. You can explore the multiple levels alone or with a friend. Test mad weapons and try to survive the harder difficulties!

Dragon Bros is available in Early access on Windows, Mac and Linux via Steam.

Story

Four teenage dragons go on an adventure to save their kidnapped mom. The culprits? The mechaliches! They are an evil robotic society who survived the collapse of a technologically advanced alien civilization. On their way, our dragons meet various mega bosses and learn more about their enemies’ goal.

Gameplay

SHOOT SHOOT – DIE – SECRET PASSAGE – ROLL – OH NO IT’S A TRAP!

There are a dozen kind of enemies. Some are just shooting at you, other lob at you, some fly around and drop bombs, some have a shield in front of them, some fly and shoot, some are slow but very resistant, some are sniping you, some punch you etc. Some of the enemies are robotic war machines, while others are buildings (shield generator, huge fan, turret, enemy factory, traps, etc.)

Use the map to travel freely through already completed levels and improve your previous high score.

You can collect power ups along the track (machine gun, super laser, naval cannon, heath pack, etc.). Every act of destruction rewards the player with scraps (score). Use it to unleash your weapon super powers for a few seconds: bigger bullets, bouncy projectiles, increased range, higher damage, larger splash area, secondary effects, etc!

Try out a demo over there! It’s free! It’s got dragons in it!

The demo supports Windows, Mac and Linux versions. Both Windows and Mac versions support X360 controllers natively. XBox One controllers are also supported, except on Windows 10 (but we are working on it!). You can use them on Linux as well, but you may have to remap some controls.
