Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has unearthed some gameplay videos for a previously unreported mobile device game for our favourite transforming robots. The game, by Backflip studios, is called Transformers: Earth Wars, and appears to feature a lot of promising designs in terms of the current multimedia direction that Hasbro and IDW are taking. Take it away, Sabr! (You can also view the videos, one in English, one in Spanish, and the official description below.)

There are a LOT of toy-based and toy-inspired designs in this game, such as Megatron, the Seekers, and Breakdown being based on their CW toys, Prowl using his CW toy's vehicle mode parts in a traditionally G1-styled robot mode, Bludgeon being loosely based on the ROTF toy, Blaster and his small friends all based on their Titans Return toys, and there's even a look at a very Titans Return-looking Soundwave







Transformers: Earth Wars by Backflip Studios, Inc (IOS/Android)

Earth's fate is in your hands. Whose side are you on?

Assemble the ultimate team of legendary Transformers robots- including Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Soundwave, Starscream & many more. Will you join forces with the Decepticons or ally with the Autobots? Choose your side! Build an impenetrable base. Wage war against the opposing faction by defeating other players and raiding their bases for energon stockpiles. Construct a Space Bridge to summon reinforcements from Cybertron. Deploy Starscream for air strikes to destroy laser cannons, penetrate defenses with an Optimus Prime ram attack, or repair your team with the healing ability of Autobot Ratchet.

Earth's fate is in your hands.

GAME FEATURES

● Battle as Decepticons or Autobots

● Build & upgrade base defenses

● Ally & chat with other players

Megatron and his assault team of Decepticons have attacked Earth, ravaging the planet's natural resources to synthesize energon, the preferred fuel of the Transformers race. Optimus Prime has dispatched a tactical team of Autobots to Earth, hoping to counter the Decepticon threat. The battle for Earth has begun. Whose side are you on?

Transformers: Earth Wars.

Looks like 'Transformers Clash of Clans'

I sincerely hope this game bumps DeNa out of the Transformers game market completely and that Backflip will run this game better.

If RotF-inspired Bludgeon gets put into Transformers Devastation as a playable character I would buy that game. I'd love to jump around hacking and slashing with samurai swords then turning into a tank to blast the crap out of stuff. Autobot limbs flying all over the place...

All playable characters in Devastation are Autobots.

It will, as Hasbro now owns Backflip. :P

I think it looks pretty fun. The character models look cool. I might try it out.
As for the pay to play. I played Dragonvale for a long time without ever having to spend a red cent. So I bet it's possible with this one. Just takes a lot of patience. I like how this game has some Dragonvale elements to it, or Clash of Clans, like Kyleor said.
I like building forts. :-B

Hence why I haven't felt compelled to buy it yet.

i prefer paying 10 euro for a full game without having in game purchases than this sort of game. The game itself seems to be a skinned version of many other games of its ilk. I will definitely download it and have a go but I doubt it'll hold my interest for long.

For 3 years I've been telling Hasbro to go the AirMech Arena route. Well this is a start but forgive me for not being all that impressed.

I'll just stick with Airmech Arena. 8-)

Hmmm, it looks like Clash of Clans meets Transformers, minus the awesome Liam Neeson Super Bowl ad. I'd give it a try, but I guess it's a closed Beta because I can't install it on my device. I hope it doesn't devolve into boring pay-to-win like all the DeNA games.

Doesn't look that interesting, the sort of game we have seen 100s of times before.

Will wait and see though.

The game itself may be a little similar to other RTS ones, yes - but believe you me, the attention to Transformers detail is truly impressive!

I mean: Cullen, Welker, a new music album, toy and cartoon designs, dialogue snippets, and just you wait for more. :D

Hopefully this game won't be allowed to become a pay-to-win money raper like DeNA's Transformers games were allowed to become.

Also the Beta says it's incompatible with all my devices, yet mine should be compatible according to what they list as the only requirement. Maybe they don't want anyone getting it anymore? Has anyone played the Beta?


Edit: I found the APK elsewhere, it installed fine, started fine, the graphics look sweeeeeet on a Galaxy S3 (definitely does NOT look like the Beta of a game), and probably look better on a bigger/newer screen.

As far as I'm aware, the Beta is only open to certain regions/via invitation. Only pre-registration is allowed for now, with full release coming in April!
