Awesomenauts is a 2D multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game where two teams of up to three players fight each other on side-scrolling maps with platforms. The game is set in 3587 where the Ones and the Zeros (a red and a blue robot army) fight with the help of hired mercenaries. One of those teams is called Awesomenauts, controlled by the player. The goal is to help one army win by depriving them off the drill used to gather the scarce Solar metal. A match is won by defeating the other team's solar drill.
