I was never much for Flash games, but I was extremely pleased to stumble upon Gamma Bros on Newgrounds a few years back. Fast-paced action, charming graphics and an 8-bit soundtrack all contribute to a rather excellent gaming experience, reminiscent of Galaga, Asteroids and 1942.
You take on the role of the titular Gamma Bros Buzz and Zap, who work diligently upon a space station near Jupiter. Every day they must commute back to planet Earth in their spaceships, fending off waves of alien invaders along the way. It is up to you to guide the brothers safely home through the most dangerous regions of our galaxy!
You can play Gamma Brothers in your browser on the PixelJam website, along with a cavalcade of other Flash games. There is also an option to download the game to your desktop, and a store where you can by Gamma Bros merchandise.
