The official Transformers facebook page has posted another piece of card art from Mobage's upcoming Transformers: Legends mobile device game. They've blurred the name out so facebook fans can guess his identity, but I think it's safe to say most of us Seibertronians will instantly recognize him as the G1 Deluxe Insecticon Chop Shop!

TRANSFORMERS: Legends is coming soon! Can you guess who this character is? One hint: it's a Decepticon! Find out more at: http://www.transformers-legends.com/

When I saw the name "Chop Shop", I was worried that it was going to be another "not-Shrapnel" falling victim to loss of name copyright, so I'm pleasantly surprised to see this is indeed the good ol' Deluxe kleptomaniacon! Without the deely-bops on his antennae, he looks quite badass to boot!

Mobage's Transformers: Legends mobile device game has been released overseas, Singapore and Australia at least. Our own site moderator Burn, who has downloaded the game, has shared the following gameplay review and screenshots.

Additionally the folks over on the Planet Iacon facebook page have posted 25 of the character cards with their stats. Check out the images mirrored below.

If you're outside the US the game may be available to you at the link listed below:
Google Play Store link

Burn wrote:So, game play is basic, as you would expect for a mobile/tablet game.

When you join up you choose your faction. This seems pointless though as you can build both Autobot and Decepticon teams and participate in Autobot and Decepticon missions.

You have two ways to earn XP. Missions (which uses Energon) and Battles (which uses Energon Battle Cubes). Once you've used all your energon and battle cubes up you have to wait for it to replenish.

In missions you have a job to do, but it's basically press the scan button. This can result in either finding character cards, or you have to deflect attacks by Swoop or Ramjet (depending on your faction). You may also come across a Cache which gives you the chance to win rare cards. As the mission progresses you may also battle a boss whose weapon you can win. You earn XP points and Credits.

In Battles you fight other players. Well not so much fight, you line your cards up, winner is determined by stats. You earn XP and Battle Points

Cards you collect can be used for either trans-scanning your characters (you need to find both a matching robot mode and alt mode to trans-scan them together so they can transform), alternatively you can use them to upgrade existing characters (at the cost of credits) or sell for credits. Same goes for weapons.

There's the Space Bridge which you can use to request more troops (cards). There's a variety of ways to use the space bridge. Game credits (dish out the money), Battle Points, Ally Points, Bronze Warrior Medal (you get these when you level up) and Bronze Weapons Medal (not sure where you get these)

Friends playing? Add them as Allies. So far the only advantage I see is to "cheer" them and earn Ally Points for the Space Bridge.

It's a simple game, very beautiful artwork. Looks great on a 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. My only complaint? You have to have an active internet connection.

The character art is GORGEOUS!

Game play is simplistic and won't hold your attention past a few weeks, and once you collect all the cards you'll probably never want to play again, but for now it's a nice break from Angry Birds Star Wars!

Those all look really good (Red looks like his MTMTE design with the colors reversed to me), but is Shockwave based off the Frenzyrumble custom? Also, anyone got pictures of their alt-modes?

Seems to follow the same format as alot of the other mobage games. I've been playing Deity Wars for a few months and Marvel War of Heros for a few weeks. There are some minor differences but in general they're basically the same game with different words and pictures.

Anyway the art for TF Legends is AMAZING. I too like that the art reflects current products.

Can't Wait!!! I'll see you all there I'm sure.

wow, actually got suckered in to buy this coins to get a rare card. feels like a rip as to 'unlock' their power you have to get the alt/ robot mode as well..
Still, powerful.
Only seen one Optimus Prime as well, dying to get Magnus Robot mode!

For some reason I lost my Ratchet (probably fused with Hound) so I feel like an inferior entity on the battlefield.. :(

Wonder how to reset :p

Actually i'm sure I trans-scanned Scourge but apparently not.

Bit hard to work out whether it's a bug or just my mind playing tricks.

Am L22 now (Skript is 25) and in one of my daily grinds to get more cards through the space bridge.. MEGATRON popped up!

This L4/Elite is about twice as powerful (attack&health) compared to a half-way leveled L2 card and I DO feel lucky to have him. In all my "PVP combat" so far I've only seen one Optimus Prime, one Metroplex, one Starscream and two Trypticons (50 battles won.)

It's available in EU too.

Those of you that installed TF:L outside of Google Play, just uninstall and re-install through Google Play. Log in and you'll have your stuff back.

Biggest changes I noticed on my One S:
Cheers now receive 10 AP PER BUDDY, previously this was something like 10 AP per 5 or 10 Buddies.
Battles no longer stop responding on the preparation screen (the battle still continued, you just couldn't see it.
Game loads and resumes slightly quicker, I guess about 1 Second has been shaved off of both conditions.

I'm trying to avoid the bug where you wouldn't receive your Level Up rewards if you leveled up during a battle instead of a mission (this also goes for intercepts) so I can't tell if that is fixed.

so far this game is :michaelbay:tastic
Re: Transformers: Legends Mobile Device Game Chop Shop Art (1446217)
Posted by Burn on December 13th, 2012 @ 5:18am CST
I was forced to update as well.

-edit-

Changes i've noticed
• Changes in graphics - Every time you level up during, or complete a mission, the "completion" screen has been improved.
- when you defeat someone in battle they're surrounded by broken glass
• Sound has improved, for example, it's sharper when you're attacked during missions.
• AI for attacks during missions have improved, they now fire across more of the screen rather than just what was a central location (could by the higher level too)

Just tested, you still don't get your bronze medal and energy restore if you level up during a battle :(

If you want to know if when it's available for an iWhatever.. 95% of the mobile world doesn't care, really.

I personally don't consider iConsumers smart buyers to begin with. Since their marketshare is dropping rapidly you now see plenty of devs ignoring the platform because of its Stalinist control methods and money greedy marketplace operators. Mobage simply makes more money on the Android platform's in-game purchases and combined with overwhelmingly better sales numbers the SANE choice is quickly made.

Yes, I do plan to gangnam style all over the iQuit grave.

People that buy every Apple product when it comes out every time are not smart buyers. How about those who have an iPhone (3, 4, whatever) and that's it? Are we bad investors because we wanted one of their phones?

I'm sure we're getting off topic here, anyway. Nightwalker, the game is out in Europe, but I have not been able to find it on iOS yet. It probably is...I don't know. I don't care either. >:oP

So does anyone have any tips or hints that they have discovered so far? If you have any math for the game please feel free to share. I have already started to determine calculated upgrade bonuses for level 1, level 1 combined, and level 2 combined upgrade and full upgrade bonuses. Once I have the math all worked out I'll be glad to share the calculations.

I upgraded 3 l1 cards primarily just to see what the difference would be when you use upgrade say an l3 leader card

For example, I upgraded the leader off of 1 bone crusher, then a trans-bone crusher, then an upgraded bone crusher, then an upgraded trans-bone crusher and recorded all of the upgrade points.

I have been traveling pretty much most of this year since about maybe March or so. I prefer playing from my laptop, but while in airports or hospitals I'm stuck to my phone or tablet if the hospital has Wifi. The hmw game on this site is payable, but the load times and site design don't really make it mobile friendly. I run ad blockers if it gets really bad on low bandwidth areas, but try to avoid it since I try to support the site were I can
