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 and Victory will be yours!
The choice of characters ranges from a hardy cowboy that solves everything with dynamite to a spacefrog that can use dazzling breakdance moves to a mysterious floating brain that can heal allies to even crazier heroes.
