All for 'naut.
Astronauts explore space. Scribblenauts vivify scribbles. Awesomenauts create awesome. In an age where games are given pretentious titles like Wars of Death II: Bludgeoning, it’s nice to encounter something more succinct.
When you first play Awesomenauts you may think it’s a game about short, snappy deathmatch battles like every other online action game released in the last ten years: blitzkriege, kill streaks, more explosions than Michael Bay’s annual fireworks display. Nothing could be further from the truth. In my first game, I immediately raced into the opposing team’s territory, blasting through enemy robots like I was playing Metal Slug. Crawls like a slug, quacks like a slug, right?
