This game is mainly being played by myself and my 11-year old son and 9-year old daughter. This is our first time playing a MOBA together. We got off to a rocky start, but now that we are figuring out some battle strategies and which characters we each like to play with, we are having a really good time with this game. I would consider this a great introduction into the MOBA world. Personally, I love that the three of us are working hard to play well as a team and communicate constantly with each other during a match so that we know what each other is doing and what is going on in different areas of the arena.
Basic premise of the game, you pick your Awesomenaut (a made-up sci-fi character -- each has different strengths / abilities), then you and your two teammates engage in an online 3-on-3 battle. If the game can't find a full 3-person match, then it will substitute 'bot' opponents to play against.
Goal: get past the other team's turrets and then destroy their base (called 'the drill') while defending your own turrets and base.
During a match, you can buy upgrades for your character as you collect currency. Note: these upgrades are for that match only -- your characters do not upgrade permanently. Your own personal level within the game does increase throughout the game and you are able to unlock new powers, characters, and locations as you level-up.
Con: the game's server connections can be a little glitchy sometimes
and overall, the game is pretty simple -- but we are loving it so far as an introduction into this type of gaming.
