    So, this was released with little fanfare on XBLA, but it's a freebie for PlayStation+ members.

    I've never been a MOBA fan, but I do love a good 2D action game. After giving it a trial, this has been dominating most of my playtime.

    Aside from the unique 2D action + MOBA strategy, it's aesthetically very 80's cartoon. Example:
    Just watch the intro
    I think if anyone could appreciate this style, it's a Transformers fan.

    Anyway. I thought this game was special enough to deserve its own thread, and would like to find some good team mates!

    My current internet isn't good enough for online gaming, but I still play the single player from time to time. Love the 80's cartoon inspired trophy/achievement names. That and the theme song.

    Quite frankly... I'm surprised there isn't any more interest around these here parts... given the 80s theme music and inspired achievements.

    It really is a great 2d MOBA.
