TL;DR = It's a great 2D platformer MOBA, much more fun that your typical one! Insta buy! Go go go!
There are multiple, completely unique characters in this game that you can play as. Each one of them has their own voice set, unique soundtrack, theme, abilities, look, playstyle! That is awesome and really important in a moba game. There might not be 100s of characters in this game but every single one of the ones that are available are pretty amazing! Definitely worth your time!
There are a few maps too. They are pretty much the same in general but each one of them adds a little twist to the mix. On one map you will have a jungle with bosses, on another a button that releases a giant moster and low gravity field in the middle of the map on yet another one. Each map looks different and feels different, which is nice.
The graphics look good and the game runs well on older machines, which is a huge plus. The style the game uses reminds me of awesome, old cartoons with interesting heroes and cool catch phrases. Oh, the game is also filled with puns and references, the voice acting at least so bear that in mind. Also, the animation quality is really cool and it makes me smile, which is a plus!
Sound design is awesome, the music fits the game well and as said before each indivudual character has their own soundtrack so you will hear different, GREAT! music when playing different characters. The effect sounds are nice too, characters use different sound assets for their attacks etc.
The platforming section of the game works well, you jump on platforms, drop down, run around, it's great! Nothing wrong here, works just as it should. The game is full of action and that's one of the things that differenciates it from other MOBA's. You are doing things all the time. There is no mana, just cooldowns. You can use your abilities as much as you want and that's great because it leaves more space for actual skill and action to be involved in every fight.
Then you have the shop, it's different than most of the MOBA's. Instead of buying items each character has three "trees" with individually unique skills that they can choose from and buy during the game and one more utility "tree" that's pretty much the same for every hero with some minor changes here and there. So before the game starts you choose your skills (which you can unlock as you play the game) and then you're able to buy them in-game when you have enough Solar, and yes, Solar is the in-game currency.
There is an in-game leveling system involved. You gain a level every time you collect 100 Solar or "gold". The level doesn't add you health or damage or anything like that. It's just an indicator for players to see if they're going to be facing a higher level opponent who has more in-game items. You gain more solar = you get more items = you are more powerful, that's it.
There is also prestige available and out of game levels.
Okay, this had me a bit confused at first so let me explain.
"Account" levels with a maximum of 132 level per prestige.
10 prestige levels, think of Call of Duty kind of thing.
Leagues, there are 10 leagues in the game that are used for matchmaking as far as I know.
You start in the 10th league and as you improve you start facing more experienced players until you reach the 1st league, the "pro" tier.
So you gain 132 account levels by playing games and then you can level up your prestige. Then you level up and gain levels again until your prestige increases, again. Simple.
And the gameplay... the idea is simple.
When you first launch the game you are being thrown into a tutorial. You destroy a few turrets, push some droids and destroy the enemy drill core, their base.
And that's pretty much what you have to do. Kills don't matter all that much, you're just supposed to destroy the turrets to get to the drill core... and destroy it.
Sounds simple? Well, it's not. And that's what makes this game amazing!
There are probably many bits and pieces here and there that I forgot to write about but it doesn't really matter because this game is great and I will continue playing it for a long time! ^~^
