PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist (Android) Mini Review

So this past week I was browsing the ‘Play Store’ on my phone for something new to play.  I needed something new to play that would keep me busy until Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection comes out next week.  Enter PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist by Outerminds Inc.  It is a cute little 8-bit platformer.  The game is something like a Mario… or Adams Family for the SNES, except with a bit wonkier controls.  You may find it a bit difficult to control your character while jumping in the air.  The touch-screen is a little sensitive, or at least it was for me.

It’s a short game, something that you could probably beat in one day; if you play on easy mode that is.  Now I’m not a big PewDiePie fan, I’ll admit that I have watched a good number of his videos, however in this game there seems to be references to his videos that only loyal fans will understand.  Friends of his are also in this game as playable characters; if you’re not a fan of playing as PewDiePie, then maybe you’ll like playing as Markiplier… or how about CinnamonToastKen… or Cry?  Personally, I played JackSepticEye all the way through the game once I unlocked him.  Speaking of all these YouTubers, there is also voice acting in this game, which means you get to hear these YouTubers give out some cringe worthy performances.


I know it sounds like I am bashing the game, and that is not what I want to do.  I actually really liked this game.  It’s really really tough on the harder difficulties.  I’ve only beat the first two levels on lvl. 2 difficulty; don’t judge.  If you have $5 to spare, I would recommend this game, and you don’t even have to be a fan of Felix or his friends to enjoy this game.  If you’re looking for a mobile game to pass the time, then this one is for you.  So try it out, have fun, and go ahead and rage while you play it on the harder difficulties.
