AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is a game in which the player jumps off the top of a floating building, falls, and lands on a platform. Along the way, the player scores points by accomplishing various tasks, like falling close to other floating buildings, vandalizing buildings, and hitting score plates. The game takes place on Earth, the moon, and Ganymede.
AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome features one hundred twenty five levels. The player’s score on each level is rated from one to five stars, and earning more stars grants the player more teeth and kneecaps, which are used to unlock additional levels and other things, like a meditation. The level selection screen also contains various tips and facts the player can read, and the music that plays during it is sometimes interrupted by radio announcements from a man named Nebin.
