"A side-scrolling 3v3 DOTA-style game with an emphasis on manual aim and platforming. Very creative characters, one of which I badly voice-act."

New Awesomenaut coming in 2.7: Scoop!

A new awesomenaut has been revealed: Scoop!



The Scoop of Justice, is a brave Gelati knight. The Gelati are brilliant craftsmen famous for their delicious Ice Cream Castle. The gelatinous knights gather snow and ice from different planets and mix them with sweet candies and fruits. Although cocoa trees haven’t been seen for ages and are thought to be extinct, the Gelati see it as their sacred duty to find a real piece of chocolate and create the ultimate flavour of ice cream: stracciatella. Scoop was assigned by the lords of his house to aid the Awesomenauts in protecting the universe from the new Omicron threat.

Scoop will be available to all Awesomenauts players when Patch 2.7: The Frozen Frontier hits. Note that this character won’t be Starstorm exclusive. So even if you do not own the Starstorm expansion, you will be able to show that the might of the icecream knight is always right! Check out all the other 2.7 features in The Vault:

Awesomenauts... what can I say. My playtime tells alot about my feelings for this game. The game is a MOBA played in 2D and it is developed by a bunch of people who really care about their fanbase. I picked the game up a couple of months ago, and I still find the game to be fun and exciting to play.

At the start of a match, you get to choose between 18 characters. Each character has its own set of skills and items. Characters and items are unlocked through leveling up (which is fairly easy to do) and the characters look amazing. I mean... you can play as flying, russian monkey, a french chameleon with a very long tongue, a squid admiral with a very large anchor and alot of others. You will learn how to play most of these characters very quickly which means that you can get into the game immediately after playing one or two matches in practice mode.

Matches usually take about 20-30 minutes to play and if a player disconnects from the match, another player can immediately jump into the game, which is great. Your goal in a match is to destroy the enemy team's base. To do that you have to destroy two turrets in the same lane. And to do this, you have to push while defending your own structures from your enemies.

Mobility plays a big role in Awesomenauts. Not all characters are that fast and not all characters have the best escaping skills. This means that you have to know each and every map fairly well if you want to be able to escape your enemies when playing large and slow characters like Clunk and Derpl. This makes the matches much more interesting.

Mobility --> Positioning --> Kills --> Ability to push --> Victory.

The Awesomenauts community is a friendly and amazing one, I very rarely have to play with ragers and jerks. There is an option to mute other players too, so ragers are realy not a problem. There are countless of people ready to help you with whatever you need help with, on the forums and in- game, making this the best community I have ever been a part of.

TL;DR:
Buy this fantastic game. You will not regret it.

Awesomenauts has fantastic potential, but is not quite there. Tweaks to the balancing and AI will make this one a star.A clever spin on the MOBA genre that strips away the complications and nerdy presentation to create a fast-paced but deceptively complex action strategy game.Awesomenauts has a good and effective mix of genres: platformer, strategy and action. It also has a deep multiplayer with the approachability of a Saturday-morning cartoon.It's surprising just how well the MOBA formula adapts in a 2D environment, it might not be as strategic as others in the genre but it holds its own in terms of how fun the combat is. Special mention also goes to the sound design, very cool soundtrack and each character has their own little jingle, a small touch which I was impressed with, and on top of it all is the great voice acting which adds a welcome layer of charm to an already likebale game. Great concept, great gameplay, much faster-feeling and action-packed than games like LoL or Dota.A brilliant game that's well worth the small price tag.

Fun MOBA platformer with large amount of characters. Very good to play with friends.

No dedicated servers, every game is hosted peer to peer. Terrible lag can happen often. Matchmaking is ridiculously terribly completely horrible. The top players in the world can be matched against the lowest 30%.

The company that makes the game decided to do a kickstarter for a paid expansion. The amount the kickstarter generated exceeded the amount they needed to raise to make the paid expansion by over $200,000 United States currency. They are not adding dedicated servers.

The average population of this (online only multiplayer game) on steam is at its lowest point now in april 2014 since 2012. Source: http://steamcharts.com/app/204300#All

Awesomenauts has the potential to be a super fun game that is held back by a dwindling population due to poor matchmaking, no dedicated servers, and a small player base.

Personally I have experienced connection problems and random crashes in this game after some patches. These have affected some of my friends as well, but not everyone. They get fixed eventually, but are very annoying.

Hope this game goes f2p, and gets dedicated servers, and a bigger playerbase! It was super fun to play in september 2013 when their were 4 times as many people playing as there are now.

There are many cosmetic skins available for purchase in this game to provide revenue. Valve increased revenue by 12 times for teamfortress2 after switching to free to play.

Moba meets platform. This is well polished game with endless hours of fun. At first glance you might think this is a childish game from its graphic and character, but it won't take you long before you realize how competitive it can get. Champion build, team composition, and team work are all there from moba side of things.

If anyone is looking for semi casual Moba games you can enjoy with friends I'd highly recommend this game.
Just be weary of the DLC they can be addictive and expensive.

Break DOWN!
  • Superb controls
  • Excellent replayability
  • Great multiplayer match making system
Screen SHOTS!

Awesomenauts is truly an awesome game, it combines traditional MOBA (DOTA, LoL, etc) style gameplay with 2d platforming.

The gameplay is addictive, skill based and tons of fun to play with friends. There are a few annoying issues, such as players being able to leave and rejoin the game without consequence in order to pick a counter to your character.

I recommend the game to anyone regardless of how new or experienced you are to gaming.
