Awesomenauts, the multiplayer, side-scrolling, battle arena game from Ronimo Games, should be hitting XBLA and PSN today despite the problems facing the publishers dtp Entertainment.
Pick one of the six Awesome characters and join a team of 3 Awesomenauts to duke it out on the online battlefields. Defeat droids, turrets, other players and finally the enemy base to win! The choice of characters ranges from a hardy cowboy that solves everything with dynamite, a mysterious floating brain that can heal allies, a spacefrog that can use dazzling breakdance moves to other, even crazier heroes. And if you need help you can just have your friends join you online, or on your couch using splitscreen.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day for 3 years,” said Jasper Koning, Game Designer at Ronimo Games, “The day that we can finally head online and play our game against other players instead of bots! I’ll see you on the battlefield!”
The year is 3587, conflict spans the stars. Huge robot armies are locked in an enduring stalemate. At the centre is a team of elite mercenaries fighting for the spoils of war: The Awesomenauts.
