Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Casual, Platform
If you sit very still and look closely at the Google Play and App Store charts for a long time, you can occasionally spot games that don't involve one-button platforming and the collecting of endless coins to spend on endless upgrades.
Team Awesome isn't one of those rare breeds, but its focus on flying and smashing through walls means it soars above much of the freemium fodder.
Unfortunately, once the difficulty ramps up and you have to start rummaging through your pockets for loose change to spend on IAP upgrades, its Superman-style cape starts to wear thin - and even the voice of Duke Nukem himself (Jon St John) can't quite patch it up.
A decent one-button platformer with a fun flying mechanic that only loses Awesomeness once short timer limits and expensive power-ups start taxing your wallet for IAPs
