I have never played any MOBA games and I am not familiar with their mechanics. I bought this because I liked the art style and I wanted to see what was all the fuss about when it comes to MOBA games. So the game is somewhat simple...at surface! You pick out a champion form the I think 15+ characters. Each character has his/her/its own abilities and playing style. The goal of the game is to destroy the turrets that automatically attack when the enemy gets close and reach the enemy base and destroy it. You gain money by picking cubes across the map, killing enemies and NPCs, etc. The money of course is used for various general upgrades and character specific characters. The game is pretty fun, most of the fun comes from trying new characters and getting the handle on how to use them efficiently. This being a pure multiplayer games however, means that team work is highly important, so going as a lone hero will definitely results in the whole team losing. There are downsides though, the match making leaves something to be desired. Since the game has been out for a whole, there are times that you get matched against insanely good players and it can frustrating. There also people that just disconnect halfway through the game and get replaced by bots that are not half as good. Overall however, the game really good. The goody-ness comes from the colorful character designs and simple yet deep mechanics.

Great 2D Platforming MOBA game!LShun | Jan. 7, 2015 | See all LShun's reviews »
Awesomenauts is a very special MOBA game, instead of those games who put their camera to the top of your character, this game put it at the side of your character.
This is a very unique experience for those gamer's out there. The game splits 6 player's into Red and Blue team, each with the mission to destroy the enemies main structure while protecting themselves's structures.
The tower, have very high damage per second, making solo combat is impossible even when end-game. This game really makes your small robot friends shine!
The game have many playable character's and each have different skills unlocked through levelling up by playing the game.
I really recommend this game to anyone who is interested in a different experience on the same genre of game.
There are negatives, however, it have a small player base. Unless you invite some friends to join you, you will probably be playing with a full team of bots on your and the opponent team, for most of the day.
I really recommend this game as it is nicely priced, and packing loads of fun.
A great twist to a MOBA game that I've ever seen!SharingIsMean | Oct. 19, 2014 | See all SharingIsMean's reviews »
I got addicted to this game for a good month, but after a while you start to see the actual competitiveness due to leveling up. Much more people start trying really hard, same can be said about all other MOBA's as well. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you're just looking for an all around good time, get some friends in this game with you, it'll be fun and not as competitive, or play with bots. Either way, this game is still pretty humorous, fun, and entertaining!
Amazing MOBA.MrPhytel | Aug. 8, 2014 | See all MrPhytel's reviews »
Awesomenauts is an amazing game. Colorful, full of variety and a cartoonish feeling you'll love. The gameplay is addictive, skill based and tons of fun to play with friends.
Awesomenauts takes a different approach to the MOBA genre by including the platformer aspect to the game. You can drop from the highest part of the map and explode around your enemies and killing them, or even wiping out the enemy team.
The pros of the game:
- Lots of characters to play. More coming soon.
- 2D Platformer MOBA game.
- Every character has its own theme, and a remix of their theme for the killing spree theme.
- Lower difficulty when compared to other MOBAs.
- Every character is unique. And has it's own personality.
- Some skins are free.
- Matches usually take 20-30 minutes to play.
And now the cons:
- No dedicated servers. The games are hosted via peer to peer. Terrible lag can happen in some matchs.
- The matchmaking can be frustrating at times. You can end playing agains't the top players and have no chance to win.
- Random crashes.
- You can experience some connection problems.
Overall, Awesomenauts has the potential to be a really fun and interesting game. You can play with friends or random people in online matches. There's new content for the game every so often and the developers care for the fanbase of the game.
Go ahead and play it!
