We have a new update for Kabam's Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile game, this time featuring a new and interesting character: Movie Hound! This is based on the character voiced by John Goodman that appears in both Age of Extinction and The Last Knight with his vehicle mode being based more on the later film with some changes to avoid any copyright issue with Mercedes.

This player is available as of right now and you can read all his stats below or on their website by clicking here. They also le you know who he is strong and weak against. It seems he is no match for Optimus Primal for instance.

I don't usually like mobile games but I've been having fun with this one so am glad it won some awards. Am struggling to unlock Hound though. I got Optimus Primal almost straight away even though I wasn't even trying to get him (not a Beast Wars fan).

The "judges" do realize that downloads dont matter its how many active users that count, if this won purely on download numbers than i feel bad for the games that are actually good but got looked over cause their download count wasnt a million or more.

Am I just really stupid for finding this game really confusing? Not in terms of the fighting, sure, but with how all of the other mechanics work with it, I was lost almost immediately. And since I don't care much for fighting games like that, especially on mobile, it just turned me off entirely.

From the official Kabam Studios webiste for the mobile game Transformers: Forged to Fight, we have another character update in the form of the addition of Insecticon Kickback joining the game as of March 15th! The full bot intel report can be seen on the site here, but we have also copied it below for your reading convenience.



[quote]BOT INTEL REPORT – KICKBACK
Add Kickback to your ultimate squad March 15th at 10AM PDT!
About Kickback:

Faction: Decepticon

Class: Scout

Intelligent and deceptively persuasive, Kickback’s power to manipulate minds is only ever a ploy to gain access to the information or resources he seeks. Like all Insecticons, Kickback feels the urge to continuously consume all material around him and is capable of chewing through even the toughest Cybertronian metal.
Stats and Abilities:

2-Star:

Health: 1470
Attack: 179
Max Rating: 559

3-Star:

Health: 3608
Attack: 379
Max Rating: 1294

4-Star:

Health: 9378
Attack: 984
Max Rating: 3515

Basic Abilities: Power Leak, Evade, Consume

Critical Hits

60% chance to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.
Kicking attacks have +30% Critical Rating.

Power Leaking Opponents

Kickback’s Melee hits against Power Leaking opponents have +50% Power Rate.

Opponent Avoids a Dash Attack:

30~38% chance to Evade Melee Attacks for 2 seconds.

Heavy Attacks

When Kickback transforms he has a 100% chance to Consume all Shock, Power Drain, Power Lock, and Power Rate Debuffs on himself and generate 1~5% of his Max Power over 2 seconds for each debuff removed.
When Kickback lands a Heavy Attack he has a 100% chance to Consume all Power Rate and Power Gain Buffs from the opponent and generate 1~5% of Max Power over 2 second for each buff removed.

Signature Ability – T-Cog Sabotage

Kickback’s attacks can be modified to infect his opponent with T-Clog. This cyber virus attacks the bot’s sensitive electronics that control their ability to Transform.

Heavy Attacks

35~70% chance to infect an opponent with T-Clog, lowering the opponent’s power rate by -30% for 10 seconds. If the infected bot uses a Heavy Attack, T-Clog is removed and their Transformation fails, Stunning them for 2 seconds.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Shock in the Wounds

Kickback uses a shocking blast to turn insult to injury.

100% chance to Inflict Shock for each Power Leak on the opponent, dealing 40% of Attack over 5 seconds.

Special 2 – Lacerate

Those wings aren’t just for looks.

100% Chance to gain a Critical Rate Buff, increasing Critical Rating by 30% for 8 seconds.
100% chance each Critical Hit of Kickbacks Wing Blades to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.

Special 3 – Need to Feed

Hope? Kickback ate that first.

100% chance each Critical Hit to inflict Power Leak, draining 4.8~9.6% of an opponent’s power over 10 seconds.
For each Power Leak on the opponent Kickback Repairs 3% of his Max Health over 5 seconds.

Synergy Bonuses:

Mutual – Allies – Soundwave, Bludgeon

+2~8% Armor.

Mutual – Enemies – Grimlock, Prowl

+2~8% Attack.

Mutual – Enforcers – Motormaster, Ramjet

Debuffs last 20~40% longer and cannot be Purified.

Strong Match-ups:

Shockwave – Shockwave would find this matchup to be illogical as his Shock charges will be quickly consumed by this voracious Insecticon.
Megatron (Revenge of the Fallen) – Once Megatron has been infected with T-Clog his proclivity to fire off Heavy Attacks while enraged could leave him Stunned and vulnerable.

Weak Match-ups:

Hound (The Last Knight) – Hound’s ability to inflict Critical Rate Down with his Special Attack 1 will leave Kickback unable to inflict Power Leak with his basic hits.
Optimus Primal – Primal will completely negate Critical Hits, disabling much of Kickback’s ability set that revolves around Critical Hits.

Recommended Modules for Kickback:

Scout’s Sentry – Increasing Kickback’s Critical Rate and ability to Evade will ultimately help him survive while dishing out those potent Critical Hits.
Transwarp Cell – Ensuring Kickback routinely slams into his opponent with Heavy Attacks will allow him to take great advantage of his Consume and Signature abilities.

Not sure but I'm gonna guess cinematic? All the bots that have (CIN) after them have both movieverse and G1/CombinerWars incarnations in the game so am assuming (CIN) are the movie ones.

Welcome. :)

Anyways yeah I still quite like the game. As a time-killer on my phone for boring waits or tedious public transport journeys it does the trick nicely and has plenty of the movie characters I enjoy with a nice selection of the G1 folk (I'm not sure which Bludgeon is since he's based on the RotF toy but that got repurposed as G1 as well and I kinda count my toy as multiversal traveller between my Movie and G1-ish collections too). :P

Marcelo Matere is the legendary Transformers artist behind the box and card art for the majority of Transformers line since Armada. While still doing promotional and packaging art for Hasbro, he is also part of the staff at Kabam for their Transformers: Forged to Fight game, working as an illustrator. Below is a message he posted on his instagram account regarding the process for developing splash screen featuring Dinobot and Galvatron.

After the sketch approved I had to pose the great 3D models done for the Kabam’s Artists on the Unit and then finish the Illustrations with Photoshop. I’ve learned a lot with this process! Hope you liked!

isnt kabam the same company that created that Star Wars game a while ago just to promptly scrap it after only a year?

hmm... it’s only been a year since the launch of this game. looks fun, but i think i’ll give it a bit longer before downloading it and investing any of my time into it.
