Awesomenauts showcases Yuri, the jetpacking Russian monkey

More awesome from Ronimo Games, as if it’ll ever stop, with the latest character showcase. This time, Yuri is caught in the limelight! That is, if he’s got his healing upgrade. Yuri, easily described as a crazy ivan with a jetpack, is a character who doesn’t prefer to get into the thick of things. With a jetpack for mobility and a long range laser for damage, Yuri can stay at a safe distance if necessary. When a fight’s going down and nobody’s got an eye on the sky, however, Yuri can easily hover above and drop bombs, of which he has many different types. Lastly, when it’s time to defend, Yuri can deploy an aura around him which has different effects ranging from damage to healing. This gentleman, using the lightest definition of the word possible, is going to be an amazing pusher and defender due to his bombs, aura and range. To see more of what he has to offer, check the five minute gameplay video after the jump. Keep your eye on XBLA Fans for the final character showcase coming soon. Read More

Awesomenauts’ Jasper Koning talks shop in this Q&A

Awesomenauts, upcoming 2D MOBA game from Ronimo Games, is paving the way to an entirely new way to play MOBA games without abandoning all the things we love. However, with a change of dimension comes several other things. Arguably games like League of Legends are actually pretty simple to understand and can be very accessible. However, getting good, or passing the “barrier of competency”, is a very long, uphill battle requiring either tons of gameplay experience or a lot of research. Awesomenauts seeks to simplify and streamline the mechanics surrounding the depth that MOBA games are known for without removing any of it. In that effort, Ronimo Games has employed a simple, understandable and customizeable “item”, or rather upgrade, structure and shop system into Awesomenauts. How exactly that lofty goal will be achieved is, in short, explained below and after the jump.

Q: Awesomenauts features MOBA style gameplay on a 2D plane, and amongst a myriad of things featured in MOBA style games,Awesomenauts employs a shop feature. How does it work?
A: The shop in Awesomenauts is a simple 3×4 grid containing items specific to the class you’re playing. Each row of items represents a category of upgrades for a specific part of your character. The categories are as follows: special skill 1, special skill 2, shots and passives. The special skills need to be bought first, before they can be upgraded. Apart from the shop you can access during the match, there’s also a loadout system outside the game. There you can customize which 12 items will be available to you during matches. These loadouts are custom per class.
