Broforce is a local co-op patriotism simulation. You play as 80's and 90's action heroes waging war against terror in almost entirely destructible nostalgic settings.
While superficially a run 'n gun in the vein of Metal Slug, Broforce's reactive environment encourages tactical play. Each bro out of the 14 the game currently features (with many more to come) has distinctive overpowered attacks and special abilities, and mastering them all is one of Broforce's core pleasures.
Death is instant and often surprising, but this is balanced by the incompetence of the enemy. Explosions are plentiful and may often result in unpredictable chain reactions, but this shouldn't discourage you from permanently holding down your trigger finger. Yelling "'Murica!" while you do so is optional.
