Brothers A Tale of Two Sons iOS puzzle-adventure game gets its first price drop: $2 (Reg. $5)

The critically acclaimed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons from 505 Games is now available for just $1.99 on the App Store. Regularly listed at $5, this is the very first time the game has been discounted for iOS.

While its ratings are somewhat mixed at 3.5/5 stars from over 230 gamers, keep in mind the game received rave reviews on release and most of the complaints appear to be surrounding particular technical issues. The game features interesting puzzle and adventure elements along with a story that had some reviewers “moved to tears.”
