  • Summary: The game features the most awesome mercenaries in the galaxy in their fight for territorial supremacy. Awesomenauts brings Russian monkeys with jetpacks, giant robots, and lots of other mighty aliens to the two-dimensional console battlefield. Combining classic platforming-action with modern online multiplayer functionality, the action-packed gameplay offers everything the 16-bit generation and modern gamers love. Collapse

    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 is a deep multiplayer battler with the approachability of a Saturday-morning cartoon.

    Awesomenauts has a good and effective mix of genres: platformer, strategy and action.

    Splendid multiplayer mayhem contains a strong factor of addictiveness – unusual design and perfect playability will keep you in the game for a long time. [Nov 2012]

    This game is a simple version of LoL, which in turn is a simple version of Dota, but not be simply a bad game, you can show great skill moving with the character, the games are fast and fun, different characters if you can choose which skills improve each character, this game really costs little and provides hours and hours and hours of fun, besides having the option to go prestige and gaining positions in the leagues

    a great game with very little money

    I have no idea how, but i cant seem to be able to not have fun in this game. The awesomenauts/champions/Heroes are all fun in their own way and each of them bring something unique into every game. being a big fan of the "DOTA clone" genre i cant help but to recommend this to anyone else who enjoys this genre of games.

    Well worth 10 dollars, there's gonna be a bunch more free skins on the way from what I understand if anyone was interested in that.

    This
    game is a 2D platformer moba without the a-holes from those games, I swear playing dota 2 changed me into an evil person almost, but holy crap this game is so laid back and fun, it's still competitive but fun.

    To me, getting kills isn't nearly as satisfying as getting them in dota 2 but the over all game play just feel so slick.

    Instead of buying items, you buy upgrades, and the abilities are pretty cool the game is well worth 10 dollars.

    It does need a few balances though, but otherwise it's a solid game well worth looking at.

    This game is a nice casual moba style game with a nice cartoon art style (also music) to give the game character. If there is a problem, its that some characters are unbalanced but, this is happens with every moba (LOL, dota, etc.) with a new character. In conclusion, I think the game is very interesting and on pc makes a very nice casual moba game with a FRIENDLY community. This gives the game a 9/10. Expand

    Awesomenauts is a platform MOBA designed to be played with friends. The game not only allows online multiplayer but also for multiplayer on the same PC. The level up system unlike a lot of MOBAs works rather well as it rewards you for your efforts by unlocking new characters to play as well as new items for you to buy in game. This game gives a lot all for a very small price tag and is well worth the money. All it needs now are a few more maps and maybe some for skins to make it a real contender. Expand

    This game is worth the money as its got really good gameplay, graphics and sound! Also love the humour and style of the game. I also can't believe that someone actually made a Dota Platforming game which blown my mind! Expand

    Avoid this game at all costs. The producers are just out to make a buck from some poor, unwitting slob that thinks Saturday Cartoons and MOBA cannot possibly fail.

    Horrible balance.
    Bad latency.
    Rubber banding even!
    Oh, did I mention the bugs and exploits?

    Yeah, glad I didn't spend the money on this game. Got it as a gift, had I purchased it I'd ask for a refund.
