In addition, here are some character bios DeNA provided to us:

Bumblebee
Autobots (Soldier)
Bumblebee is always ready for anything. He has an arsenal of gadgets designed just for him, which he can use to meet the needs of any mission. No matter where the Decepticons hide - whether they flee to the deepest ocean, or disappear into the clouds - Bumblebee is ready to pursue and destroy them.

Wheeljack
Autobots (Soldier)
Wheeljack was onboard the Ark ship that initially crashed on Earth. Equal parts medic and inventor, most of the Autobots' scientific advances have come from Wheeljack's lab. Enterprising and outgoing, he's always one of the most popular Autobots. His best invention is a near-impenetrable faceplate, which has been handy when volatile prototype inventions have literally exploded in his face. In combat, his seismic batons ward off enemies.

Alpha Bravo
Autobots | Aerialbots (Hunter)
The newest member of the Aerialbots and the only member that is not a jet plane. His assault helicopter mode gives the team a member with VTOL and hovering capabilities, but he cannot match his teammates' top speed. Being the "new guy" and the slowest flyer of the group makes him feel like he has something to prove. Carries four tracker missiles that process a "spark lock" to their targets. With fellow Aerialbots forms "Superion."

Megatron
Decepticons (Soldier)
There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The war he launched eventually drained his home planet of life. Not even the death of a world could sate his hunger for conquest.

Starscream
Decepticons (Scout)
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.

Thundercracker
Decepticons (Scout)
Thundercracker lives on fear. Special materials in his jet frame allow him to unleash controlled sonic detonations that can be heard 200 miles away. Streaking across the sky at Mach 6, he wants his enemies to hear him before they see him. He wants them to know he's coming, and cower in fear at their impending doom.

Drag Strip
Decepticons | Stunticons (Soldier)
Nasty and underhanded - would rather be scrapped than lose. Prone to overheating, but possesses the greatest pure speed of any Stunticon. Adopting the alt-mode of an advanced concept Formula One race car gives him a sixth gear the Autobots cannot match, but leaves him with a slightly fragile vehicle mode. His fierce competitive streak and unmatched speed makes him the ideal "tip of the spear" for the Stunticon forces. With fellow Stunticons forms "Menasor."

Yes and no....

I've played the game it's based on for a few months, and have not spent a dime without feeling like i'm missing out, but it's a question of how you play.

I've just kept chipping away at the main story line, and while it will take time, cash isn't needed.

Once they start events however.....

To use their other game for example, in the All Hail Megatron event, without spending money I finished with the Starscream, Soundwave, Insecticon, and Sideswipe rewards, and felt good. I'f you would be OK with the same, then you'll be fine.

If you feel left out because you didn't get a top reward (Prime or Megatron is this case) without using cash, or you are a completest who must have everything, then yes have your Visa card on standby.

I haven't had any problems, then again I am playing on a superior Android OS :P

What did impress me though was the tech support response. During the game, characters sometimes come out with movie quotes... Unless you're on iOS apparently.

Anyway, one of these supposed movie quotes was "Turbo rodding young punk..." This irritated me so much that I e-mailed DeNA and they responded within hours, saying they'd consider fixing it to the correct "Turbo revving young punk." Dunno if they did or didn't, but I haven't seen it appear since. More than that, I was impressed with their speedy reply - I was expecting my fanrage to be shoveled into their junk e-mail and disregarded. Good to know someone's at least pretending to listen lol

When we reported on the new DeNA mobile game Transformers: Battle Tactics, we were given some new character art, featuring tiny versions of Generations Combiner Wars robots - with a new reveal brought by fellow Seibertron.com member Down_Shift, does this mean that the following Cyclonus and Viper characters are hinting at some new, or rather, remolded redecoes, Decepticon combiners?

The speculation so far sees Viper as a straightforward Legend Class Powerglide repaint in blue and red, but Cyclonus may very well be a heavy retool of Voyager Silverbolt with a dashing purple deco. Check out the images below, and head to this thread to discuss the rumour. Comment below to have your say on the game!

Ok surely I am not the only one that can see that Viper is a G.I. Joe homage? I mean the name, the colour scheme, even the emblem are blatantly Cobra - the Rattler to be precise :P

WANT :)

So... if your mold prediction is true, that would make Cyclonus a combiner torso?
I'm glad they're doing remolds and premolds that make sense based on the mold in itself, but some of the results - like Ultra Cyclonus or Cyclonus Maximus, wearing a Legends-class Rodimus on his chest - are just.... odd.

It's still in open Beta testing, Canadian accounts have access because the studio is in Vancouver.

As they just updated the game with the new characters and a couple small changes, and it seems in line with the original Battle tactics when it had it's full release as long as no major bugs pop up, the full launch shouldn't be that far off.

Just hold out a little longer.

Loving Viper, hopefully there will be other franchise blenders coming.

Not only is it super obvious that that's a Cobra Rattler, the red faceplate is that of a Cobra soldier.

Just played it on my iPad... Not quite sure what I'm doing. Feels like a glorified trading card game.

I long for a proper tactical c&c style game where you have to go out a build your bases... Harvest energon and use your troops' abilities to outflank and defeat the opponents. With bases progressing till you build metroplex or trypticon that launch a final attack by transforming and stomping towards the enemy base

The Transformers: Battle Tactics app has updated, as well as provided us our first glimpse of what the upcoming Galvatronus combiner will look like once Voyager Class Cyclonus is released. (Cyclonus's torso mode features the head to Galvatronus.)
