"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."

Awesomenauts is absurd and hilarious, it builds a complex layer of strategy around a 2D core, and this is where players will discover smart tactics. Awesomenauts is a lot of work, and the more you put into the game the more you'll get out of it. This is the biggest issue with Awesomenauts. As you're starting and discovering the strengths and weaknesses of each hero, higher players will slaughter you.
A harsh learning curve lies ahead for anyone, and it’ll be a difficult first few hours for the MOBA gerne.
Matches in Awesomenauts are frequently active, you always feel like an integral part of the action, your character always clearly defined amid the cartoon chaos.
Killing turrets, players, and enemy droids earns you solar, the solar you'll spend to buy upgrades for your character.
The upgrade path you follow can have a huge impact on a match. you could go full-tilt tank with Clunk the robot and upgrade his bite ability so that it steals health with each successful bite. Or of a glass cannon and dump points into a missile launcher ability.
Not all of the characters are available up front, which means you need to level up your profile through matches with characters.
Creating a tactical build order is an important part of winning the game.

Anyone who enjoys run and gun shooters or action platformers will enjoy this, and it’s a perfect game to the MOBA genre. If you've never played a MOBA, Awesomenauts is a great place to start. Grab some friends and you'll have a blast.

Literally my favourite game, currently.
A pretty casual MOBA with a (mostly) lovely community.
Fun characters and an awesome design concept!

The way I always try to describe Awesomenauts is as a 2D, action platformer MOBA. Ever since I started playing this game, it's a formaul that I truly enjoyed in a way that I didn't enjoy something like LoL of Dota. What sets this game apart, from a mechanical standpoint, is that it has much more emphasis on manual positioning of both characters and skills, and that makes it much more challenging and interesting. Aesthetically it is very stylized and pleasing to see, with bright palets and a very well done soundtrack. The cast of characters is really unique and each has it's own unique skils that make them fun to play. And in my experience, both playing online alone (SoloQ) and coordinated team play are fun. Ronimo is always working on adding new characters, balncing them, and interacting with the community.

The only true drawback from this game, in my opinion, is that the community playing it relatively small for a MOBA, which is a real shame. As a result, matchmaking can be problematic sometimes. Finding a match and filling one relatively quick is almost never a problem, but the problem comes in with the difference in skill level of the players in the games.

I wholeheartily recommend this game to anyone who wants a different spin on a MOBA, wants a fun game to play with friends, or just wants to play a fun game.

I also stream this game semi-frequently if you want to see live gameplay of it: twitch.tv/pyrocheese

I have tried MOBA games before : DOTA2 and LoL. For both, I couldn't really play it because I was just lost and I was too lazy to learn what each items does etc.. Playing these games meant for me having fun maybe at the end, but having to spend many hours trying to understand the mechanics.

And then I discovered Awesomenauts. A very simple game to understand, a very dynamic gameplay - you can dodge everything in this game -, a very funny lore, and characters that are for most of them balanced.

That's exactly what I wanted : having fun without having to read 100 guides about mechanics. And I highly recommend this game !

It's a MOBA, but 3v3, 2D, and cartoony. Ping doesn't seem to be a problem either since I've played with people over 300 ping and see no lag at all. The characters are really likeable and some have the catchiest ♥♥♥♥ing songs I have ever heard (ie. Gnaw). There is a Dlc that gives you 4 new nauts (not including scoop when he's released), some new maps, spec mode, and some other crap. And before someone goes "awe you have to pay for four wtf", all of the nauts seem very balanced and I don't see many of the dlc nauts (probably because I don't have the dlc lol). Now finally my goofy statement in all my reviews

Awesomenauts is a 3-on-3 2D MOBA game. You start out with a limited selection of ‘Nauts, but unlocking the other ones is done rather quickly.
Eventually, you’ll have a selection of 15 heroes to choose from (19 if you also purchased “Starstorm”) each with 2 special skills and a regular attack. Further levelling up of your profile will unlock special features for your skills, like lower cooldowns or larger range. So people who have played longer will have a wider variety of features in their skills.
Awesomenauts also doesn’t have a steep learning curve like other MOBA games, so it’s fairly easy to jump into the game and get playing. However, it’s still varied enough to not grow stale quickly and the skill ceiling is high enough to keep you playing and trying to improve.

Very fun game! It's easy to pick up. Lots of different characters to chose from. Voice acting and songs are great! Practise mode against bots is very convenient if you're new and don't want to play against real people yet.

Another game for the controller, playing online is really fun :D It has got nice sound effects, and unique funny and amazing characters :D but must say the character voice was a huge dissapointment, there are not many maps but the ones there are they are just too good, but might get bored of it easily because of no variety of maps. Any way a game you hsould give a try <3

See if you can solve this puzzle:

Aweomsenauts is _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .

Did you figure it out?
Yes: Congratulations! I don't have the slightest clue how you did it! The game is truly one of (if not the) most awesome MOBA around. Its $3.40 if you ask someone for a -66% coupon. Heres the easiest way to describe it without going into detail:
If you have friends, this is a great game to play with them.
If you don't have any friends, this is a great game to play alone.
If you don't have the game to play, get the money for it.
If you don't have the money for it, get a job.
If you don't have a job, rob the bank.
If you get arrested robbing the bank, at least you tried.

No: Well then your not _ _ _ _ _ _ _. Awesome(naut)

I have spent more than 900 hours on this game. Not only because it is a lot of fun, but the makers keep updating the game, adding more content, so it always feels fresh.

Absolutely great game, I recommend this to anyone who likes MOBA's and 2d platformers.
The art style is great in my opinion, a bit funky, a bit cartoonish and a bit futuristic.
Also the musics are pretty nice as well, especially some of the character themes and killing spree themes.

The gameplay is really nice, I think the netcode is done very well, I honestly have never saw any sort of glitch/bug/lag relating to the game, but to my own connection (which can be bad sometimes).

What I love about the game is that you unlock characters, levels (only 5 of them at the moment, 4 of them are playable on online) and skills. The characters and their skills are very unique in my opinion, and some of them are voiced by famous people (for example, TotalBiscuit voiced someone but I don't remember who).
There is a lot to do and also it includes some sort of ranking I think, I haven't played this for a while so I don't really remember how it works.

Also the updates are great, they release new characters and (very rarely) maps, and they balance the game. If you go play the un-updated PS3 or Xbox 360 version you'll see it's a lot more unbalanced than the PC version. The developers really care about the game and it's community.

I might have lost my inspiration for playing this game for now, but if you play it enough I think it'll catch you and it will be like a routine for you. When I first bought it for PS3 (didn't have a computer back then, long story I guess) I absolutely couldn't stop playing it, especially after 3 of my friends bought it and we played it online/at sleepovers, which was tons of fun.

Awesomenauts is the MOBA we need - lighthearted, quick to learn, fast-paced and full of joy with its hilarious characters and catchy soundtrack.

Oh, and it's 2D. That's right - a platformer MOBA. It's genius.

There's something for everybody in this game, whether you prefer a tanky robot, a moth prophet, a space cowboy, a blowfish gangster or a space-surfing alien. Grab a couple friends, jump into a 3v3 match with very little difficulty and see why Awesomenauts will make you forget all the nastiness that exists in other, more traditional MOBAs.
