A few suggestions, if you won't mind.
Dogs are a great addition, but they are too fast. At short distances even Brade isn't able to counterattack them. It forces player to be vigilant and therefore breaks pace. I think, you can make them run toward the player, then stop for a second, growl menacingly and then strike with a killing blow.
Also, Bro Hard's stun grenade could force dogs to attack random characters, like with standart mooks.
Knife attack possibly could kill shield mooks with a single blow.
Heavy mooks might need to spin-up their miniguns before attack, like Brominator does.
Satan, main mook, might gather surrounding mooks to his position, when he has spotted the player. With megaphone or something.
When POV is killed before you were able to gather him, drop random Bro corpse.
Also, I think giant wheels would be fun. Jump on top of a said wheel, start running and roll a whole bunch of mooks into oblivion. Just saying.

Overall, you guys are awesome. Been following you since first RamBros prototype.

If anyone is keen to try out fighting some of the tanks, here is a build with tanks:

http://www.freelives.net/BROFORCE/MakeTanksWednesday/BROFORCE_Brototype_Windows_Tanks.zip

(It's just two levels, but there are quite a few tanks in the second level. The tanks are pretty tough, and their rockets seek, but the rockets can be shot down and the tanks are vulnerable to close range attacks and some other strategies probably)

Bro! that's awesome!

I particularly love the Kirk and the The Man With No Name, the Doctor Who(s) and Shaft. Kirk's cowlick is a stroke of genius!

Also, now I'm wondering about the Ninja Turtles. They're basically the definition of Bros, and Rafael is as blood thirsty as they come, possibly even as blood thirsty as Commando (Brommando).

Riddick is an easy bro to include (he basically has the Jedi skillset), though I wonder how we'd destinguish Shaft from other gun weilding bros?

Those are amazing! Raphael, Kirk, Eastwood, 2x Doctor's, Batman, Wolverine, Predator, Riddick, Shaft all instantaneously recognisable. Respect!

Thanks, guys.
Actually, those aren't the Doctor(s). It's Mulder and Scully. A personal affection of mine, they aren't mentioned nearly enough in video games. I get that they aren't action heroes and not from the 80's, but I decided to post them, since I drew them already.
Some ideas for gun wielding bros: Two handguns shooting backwards and forwards simultaneously; a gun that deals more damage at long distances and less in close range, sort of inverse of Dredd's gun; gun that has bullets which change their behaviour when they hit or kill an enemy. For example, bullets that cover more range with each enemy they strike; and a revolver (for Bro With No Name) that shoots six bullets, each slightly more lethal than the previous one. Seventh time you press the button, it does *click* sound and reloads.

These are the Doctor(s) though:

Oh, now I see Scully's lipstick! And their flashlights?

I really like that idea for a 6 shooter gun (for Bro With No Name), with the bullets getting increasingly powerful. I'd like to do something similar with a melee bro, like The Brolander, who keeps getting stronger the more he kills. Though maybe he should recharge a lightning attack special by killing...

And I really love the idea of having the Doctor Who's ... and each time doctor who dies he comes back as a different doctor...

Although Doctor Who quite specifically is against killing... and I'm not sure if that should disqualify him from being a bro.

We've updated the playable with some new goodies (like tanks in the later stages): http://www.freelives.net/BROFORCE/BROFORCE_WEB.html

Liero was the best!!! Thanks for the comparison!

I will say that the updated prototype has some rough bits, so any feedback about glitches or weirdness's is appreciated.

Doctor Bro's pacifism only applies to newschool wuss Doctor. Oldschool Doctor didn't have this problem. Oldschool Doctor did have this little thing:

what is essentially a raygun. There are no guns shooting rays in BroForce. Yet. He could be a slow devastating heavy support, like Brominator.
As for Fox Brolder (seriously, adding "Bro" to every character is awesome), he could flash his badge before shooting, stunning nearby mooks. And he could have a UFO beaming random mooks up as a special (this may lead to hilarious situations if/when you add space levels).
Nice idea about Brolander's powers. This even can be done twice. Total kills upgrade Brolander's overall might, and several kills in a row can act as berserk rage for some other character.

Found a few glitches:
If you try to knife a guy, while standing under a ladder, char freezes in knifing state until any button is pressed. Spotted this in "The Last Mook Scout" level, with Bro Hard as active character.
Sometimes bullet destroys too much blocks upwards. Around 10 or 12. Spotted with several characters, specifically Bro Hard and Rambro.
If a Brobocop's special bullet hits a shield mook's shield, it pushes him around level like a propane tank. Spotted in previous build, don't know if applies to current one. Looked like a feature though.
"C" letter in McBrover's name in "Unlocked McBrover" string is blueish, like "C" letter in "unlocked". Same applies for "Unlocked Indiana Brones" string.
Also, game froze once. I've noticed earlier that freezing only occurs in fullscreen mode.
And a suggestion: don't detach Indiana Brones's whip when he lands to the ground. If you're trying to swing and barely touch a tip of some block, whip detaches, and inertia sends you into the abyss.

Would be possible to upload a Linux build of this somewhere? There's unfortunately no webplayer for Linux and this looks crazy cool Smiley

I had a go just now, someone who spoke french joined with a ping of 400. Later two others came along with pings of 20, based in the UK. Game was fantastic, laugh out loud funny. My only complaint was that at one point the screen was trying to track all of three of us and ended up with no one in sight.
