    With all the comparisons and nods to Super Mario Bros., mobile gamers might wonder if The Other Brothers is their platformer's Mario. I wouldn't go that far, but 3D Attack's long-awaited entry in the house that Mario built is charming, humorous, and most importantly, feels darn good in motion. Give it time to grow and I foresee it getting even better.

    The Other Brothers is a beautifully presented and highly unique platforming experience for the iOS platform, but without tighter controls the game goes from challenging to frustrating all too easily; thankfully it's also short, so you won't be entirely infuriated by the experience.

    A great concept partially foiled by really shoddy implementation.

    A great idea ruined by poor controls and a bad level design. The concept has been proven right many times before, but this time it needs extra polishing.

    The artwork goes some way to redeeming The Other Brothers; for all the detail to be found in the backgrounds and sprites, everything moves fluidly, but ultimately this is still a platforming game on the wrong platform.

    A potentially great platform completely spoiled by shameful controls and an ordinary level design.

    The Other Brothers' control issues are bad enough to sink this platformer.
