When you first boot up Awesomenauts, you’ll think that you’re watching a 1980s cartoon. The setup for the game is that in the distant future, two robotic droid armies are locked in an enduring war and only the elite group of mercenaries, The Awesomenauts, can help turn the tide of battle. The opening cinematic, bizarre characters and stereotypical voice-overs instantly harken back to the Saturday morning cartoons that everyone who is now in their 20s to 30s grew up watching. If Awesomenauts was on TV back then, I most certainly would have watched it. It’s corny, but it’s all in good fun and serves as a great reason to face off in a tug-of-war battle online against friends.
