Are you looking for your next run and gun hit? How does heading out with a team of teenage dragons sound?

Available right now on Xbox One is Dragon Bros, the latest indie title to hit the console. Priced at £7.99 (although if you’re quick you may be able to nab the discounted pre-order price of £4.79 – it seems like it’ll only be in place for a few days after launch though), Dragon Bros will have you fighting off multiple enemy types as you try to rescue your kidnapped dragon mom.

You’ll be armed with pistols, shotguns, laser cannons and more as you run through the pixel art adventure in the hope of saving your mom. Suited to those lone gunners who are just looking for a quick run, or the local cooperative players wishing to team up for mass destruction, Dragon Bros promises plenty of explosions and a bit of a challenge.

Or at least that’s what the developers at Space Lizard Studio are trying to convey. Whether they have pulled it off or not will only be found out by checking out our full Xbox One review of Dragon Bros.

If you’re tempted in though, then the Xbox Games Store awaits.

Game Description:

Robots are everywhere! They’ve conquered the whole planet, destroyed the place you used to call home and kidnapped your dragon-mom. That’s not right, bros! Definitively not right. The only cure for this terrible mess is to exterminate those cranky machines with bullets and big explosions! Play as a young dragon in this 2D retro run & gun adventure, in co-op or solo. Armed with shotguns and laser cannons, free your mom from the evil Mechaliches! 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 goals.
