Monday Night Combat
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Monday Night Combat is a class-based, third-person shooter… and the most popular lethal sport of the future! It blends intense combat, finishing moves, and gameshow-like challenges and rewards to produce an action experience unlike any other. Why fight for “honor” or “duty” when you can fight for the real American dream: cash, fame and endorsements?
It’s the Throwback Throwdown in Monday Night Combat! Uncle Tully’s Funland is now available in Crossfire with new game play features! First up we have Chickey Cantor. He will now spawn in Uncle Tully’s Funland. Make Chickey fly away by shooting him and earn a big single-life buff for your entire team! Wait for Chickey to slam the ground and then you can grapple him. Ride him for eight seconds and earn big money! Just be careful, riders tend to be easy targets for enemy Pros. Secondly we’re introducing new bot spawners. These spawners have buttons for specifically spawning Jackbots, Black Jacks, Slims, Scramblers, Gremlins, Gapshots and Bouncers.
Blitz mode allow players to defend their Money Ball against armies of robots by themselves or four player co-op over Steam. During various Blitz challenges, players can spend money earned by destroying bots to build defensive turrets around the Moneyball, upgrade one of six unique character classes, or set off robot crushing environment hazards. The Challenges vary from a ten round Exhibition Blitz to endless robot waves of ever increasing difficulty in Super Sudden Death Blitz. Money earned from each Challenge goes into a persistent Lifetime Earnings that allows players to unlock over 370 ProTags, create custom classes, and get ranked on Leaderboards.
Crossfire mode pits teams of players against each other over Steam. Each team is supported by an endless stream of robots fighting on their behalf; overwhelming your opponent’s stream, upgrading your Pros, and base defenses will be the key to your success!
Each Pro caters to their unique style of play and comes with their own set of upgradeable skills. Customize those skills and abilities even further with a variety of unlockable products in the Custom Class feature.
Every game of Monday Night Combat earns the player money that goes towards their Lifetime Earnings. Lifetime Earnings can be spent on unlocking custom classes and buying earned ProTags. How much Lifetime Earnings you have also determines what level you are. Monday Night Combat keeps a large set of persistent statistics for all aspects of gameplay. MNC features over 370 ‘ProTags’ which are customizable tags you can show off to other players and friends.
Host multiple instances of MNC dedicated servers with full stand alone client.
Interesting concept that ran out of steamNucularS | Oct. 28, 2014 | See all NucularS's reviews »
Monday Night Combat turns a first-person arena tower defense into a spectator sport with its own mascot and halftime show, which is certainly a cool and refreshing concept. The bad news is that the servers are usually empty since the developers abandoned the game in favor of a free-to-play rehash (which did not really go anywhere either). It is a shame that this game ran out of steam before reaching its full potential, because the ghost (ninja) class was wicked fun to play.
Great and fun game.MafuMafu | June 23, 2014 | See all MafuMafu's reviews »
It's hilarious, it's fun and it's crucial that you play it ONLY on Monday. The only sad part is that it's somewhat hard to find people to play with, since his F2P brother took his place. But, if you check the Community, I'm sure that you'll be able to find a group (Although small) of people that still play it. This one is a must. Don't hesitate and buy it now.
Interesting blend, but not the best game.bcf623 | June 11, 2014 | See all bcf623's reviews »
This game honestly was fun for a short time, but that may have been due to the feeling of it being different from other games I have played. This feeling was because Monday Night Combat is a third-person shooter with the feel of a MOBA type game, all set up as a form of a game show or competition. If you want to see how it plays beforehand, I'd recommend you play Super Monday Night Combat which is free to play, but does not have the largest player base. SMNC, however, is an improvement to this game in more ways than one.

Despite the second game got out and it's f2p, this one still gives a fun experience if you have friends to play with. Enjoy this new e-sport in which you have to defend your money-ball in order to win with the help of your teammates and robots.
It's okay.nairume | May 14, 2014 | See all nairume's reviews »
Monday Night Combat is a relatively fun game that blends shooting mechanics with the strategic chaos of the MOBA genre. Through this, Monday Night Combat is a relatively more open experience that allows for players more accustomed to shooting games to better transition themselves over to the more rigid demands of a MOBA. Fans of either genre should easily be able to find something to like about MNC. However, despite these positive features, it is still most definitely a MOBA at heart. Players who are not a fan of MOBAs in the least will not be able to overlook this element despite the rest of the game, ultimately still limiting the game's reach.
