Understanding Awesomenauts with a How to Play trailer

Submitted by on Saturday, 28 April 2012No Comment

Awesomenauts is coming soon to PSN on both sides of the Atlantic, and what’s more, it’ll be free for PS Plus members: news, we’re sure, most will be delighted to hear. But we’re also pretty sure some of you will be thinking, what’s Awesomenauts?

It’s a tricky game to describe. Think of an online class-based shooter with a blue team facing up against a red one, but try not to think of Team Fortress. It’s a three-on-three, side-scrolling platformer rather than an FPS.

Still confused? Thought so. Maybe it’d be better if we just show you the ‘How to Play’ trailer.

After a brief go on Awesomenauts, we found it promising. As well as having a brilliant 80s cartoon art style, it has a strong focus on strategic gameplay. The DOTA-style gameplay may be common on PC, but it’s fresh on PS3. One criticism we felt was that it was a little slower than we would have liked.

So who’ll be picking this up?
