Pilot Brothers is one of those interactive games. We have two characters who interact with objects in different ways. So a major part of Pilot Brothers is finding the exact step by step process to complete a screen. We may need one character to break down a wall, and another one to release the bird.
Pilot Brothers feels like a Personal Computer game to me. This is no surprise since the iPad has been the new home of many PC games. Pilot Brothers has a story book look to it. The art style looked pretty poor to me at first. But after a couple of levels it started to grow on me. Certain characters will have mild animations.
I did research on Pilot Brothers, and found it is similar to Gobliins, and Gobliins 2. Fans of those franchises will be interested in Pilot Brothers. From the official G5 Entertainment game page: "A provincial Russian town has been shaken in disbelief: their prized, rare, striped elephant, Baldakhin, disappeared from the zoo in the dead of night. The main suspect is its notorious former owner, Karbofoss. Two well-known detectives, the Pilot Brothers, set up a new investigation, pursuing the rogue through 15 comic-style locations to find the missing elephant. Sensible Brother Chief and his not-so-bright assistant, Brother Colleague, solve tricky puzzles and play their parts with precise timing in this humorous adventure game for the whole family! "
Pilot Brothers has two important features families will be interested in. There is a hint which will highlight which brother and which object should be interacted with next. This hint feature is not always helpful though. At times I had already tried this combination with no results. The other feature is a movie button that shows how much of the screen has been completed.
If you let a child play Pilot Brothers, expect to be asked to assist them. Pilot Brothers can be confusing at times. It also has its moments of humor. A hippo plugging a hole with his behind, or a cat chasing away a bird are a few examples. I enjoyed the music in Pilot Brothers because it gives this game a circus feel to it. Which is how I took the two brothers.
