This clearly isn't ringing any bells with people so I've added another 2 lines to the clue.

Two brothers there were
But they didn't get on
They both had pots
But not of money
They would visit the other's grave
But only to laugh, not to grieve.
They sure liked their herbs
But what they brewed could be lethal

Oops sorry forgot to respond - no.

It's a one-word title.

It was releeased in the late 80s.

The game featured 2 brothers, and was in fact developed by two brothers.

The only game dev brothers I can think of from that era are the Oliver Twins. But your riddle doesn’t sound like it describes a Dizzy game.

Nope it's not the Oliver Twins.  AFAIK they're not twins!  However the brothers in the game ARE twins.

The Gardener can hurt you.

You have a cauldron.

It was released on the Bulldog label by Mastertronic.

Oh no wait, sorry what I meant was that the brothers behind the development of thus game aren't twins AFAIK!

I (think?) the Oliver Twins were actually twins. :-D

Feud, by the Pickford bros. Speccy, 1987.

Here's another:

A sequel this be
To a game by the sea
With folks misbegotten
In a town that is rotten

Nope! Apparently it works for several games...
The last line should have "rotten" in quotes.

Nope.

Oh, hahaha! That's what "eyes down an inch" meant! I thought it meant the characters in the game were tiny or something like that...
