Hell of a fun MOBA platformer. :)hateah | July 22, 2014 | See all hateah's reviews »
This game is amazing. It's one of the best in it's genres. It has multiplayer and singel-player. I prefer the multiplayer tho because its much more fun, it has a lot of classes between you can choose after you unlock them of course. You start with nothing basically when u respawn. You buy everything from the store and then for earning money for more items and upgrades you can either farm and kill minions or start chasing the other team champions and try killing them although that's hard,because you can easily get out of the situation by jumping few times and getting into ur base. The aim is to destroy the opponent's base which is being protected by 3 towers on it's way. The minions are starting from your base and going to the enemy's towers, the enemy minions does the same and they usually fight at the middle, whoever of the side minions wins the fight continues to the tower, you gotta stay behind the minions in order to kill the tower otherwise it will attack you. There is something like mini boss which u can kill for gaining health a lot, or little monsters which also gives u health,less but they are much weaker than the boss. You can also lvl up by killing champions and minions. I recommend the new DLC the developers made. It's much more fun, but don't buy it until you learn the basics of the game. Hell of a indie platformer game is Awesomenauts:) Oh yea you also got a rank in your profile which is getting higher and by that u unlock more champions.

I was a bit skeptical about a 2D moba but I still bought it. After my first game I was impressed by the gameplay, even if it is in 2D it doesn't mean that there's no strategic and no possibility to surprise the enemies.
Like all moba there are diferent classes : support, pusher, Tank, Healer...
But the better thing in my opinion is that the leavers are replaced by other players during the game. So you are not condemned to the defeat if someone leave the game.
I was surprised by the quality of the game and I hope you'll also be.
Yay, platformer & MOBA together!grhakerck | June 18, 2014 | See all grhakerck's reviews »
I am really impressed at this game. When I first entered the game, I was astonished by absolutely fantastic visuals. Then, a bunch of characters appeared that are ALL fun to play! None of them is super overpowered, each of them has special abilities. After a while, I have figured out that this will be a game that I will play a lot. And I did. The only negative side has appeared when the Starstorm expansion was released. Now, some of the functions are locked. Still, this game is great to play and if you manage to get Starstorm for a discounted price, even better.
The only 2D MOBA game that is worth playing.Furrek | May 19, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
There are two big MOBA games, that everyone played, or at least heard about them. It's DOTA 2 and League od Legends. In my opinion, those two games are best in this genre. But this game is best MOBA in 2D. To be honest never heard of any other, but well... nevermind. It's really enjoyable title. There is no such a thing like "pressure". Almost every player play this game to simply have fun. Sure, there is a ranking with best players etc. but it's not so stressful like in LoL or DOTA. I find this game to be a nice break from big MOBA games. It's really nice platformer 2D MOBA game.

Awesomenauts is a great game. The matches are a little simpler and shorter than a classical moba, but the developers use 2D to bring a refreshing twist to a burgeoning genre. The champions cover the standard archtypes but don't feel stale. The maps are also well designed for 2D by using the vertical space much more than the classic moba. Overall, Awesomenauts has a great community, innovative maps, and a varied and fun champion pool.
