Don't buy this anywhere near full price. I say this with a heavy heart, because the game used to be fun. It had enormous potential as a new take on MOBAs. I really believe that. I even still believed it could be resurrected despite a rapidly dwindling player base and veterans fleeing the game left and right over the last years. I'm a sucker for a good redemption story. Alas, despite the incredibly long time they took to develop their new matchmaking (codename "Galactron" - game version 3.3), which many of us remaining players thought might turn this ship around, I am now forced to conclude that devs did not manage to fix the problems at the core of this game. In fact, as of right now, it's worse than ever. Matchmaking is completely broken, totally separated from steam, so blocking users doesn't even work. If you want to have some fun for a little bit, get this at a huge discount, but don't expect to 'go deep'.
Tower Defense fun game, much like Dota and League of Legends games, but in a 2D platform view. Cartoon-style graphics drawn in simple colors with extremely charismatic characters in both characterizations, combat style and story. I recommend playing with friends, to play both local, as online, versus and cooperative. You spend hours playing it without realizing it, and if you do, most of the time you will ignore it and go back to playing.
I hate MOBA games and I actually like Awesomenauts. Awesomenauts is easier to be described than played. We have a MOBA game in a classic side-scrolling action indie game. Each team's bases are in the opposite side of the screen. Pick a character and join 2 more friends to create a team, take down your enemy's core at the base and win the match. As other MOBAs, what is important here is to have a balanced team. Each character has different power focused in different strategies. Balance of the players is good and there are no overpowered ones, so, it is more like choosing the character that fits with your style than finding a way to exploit the game. Awesomenauts is one of the best options if you don't like classic MOBA games. Gave it a chance even if you don't like the genre since you may find a lot of fun.
Awesomenauts is a great game. You could even say that it's awesome. The 2D Dota-like game is easy to get into, and spend hours playing. There's a wide range of heroes to play as, each with their own special attacks and abilities. Immensely fun to play, especially with friends.
If you don't know what a MOBA is, you might know of LoL, this is the same kind of game. Creeps are generated from each side, and the two teams must destroy the opponent base. The players can not go right away to the enemy base, as they are not strong enough, they will have to kill creeps, and maybe get a hero kill. This is no deviation whatsoever from the MOBA genre, is just the same gameplay but in 2D.
