A new Transformers video game was announced earlier this year and wowed no fan. Granted, what was shown was minimal and uninspiring. We now have a much better sense of the game from multiple gameplay videos which can all be found below. The game looks more like XCOM, with its turn based strategy gameplay and basic environment. You play as 6 different autobots embarking on 20 different missions that span various settings to defeat the Decepticons. You can play as Decepticons in the arcade mode, which also allows multiplayer. It is of course a much kid friendlier game than XCOM with kicking Decepticons in the face rather than performing alien autopsies. We thank Sabrblade for sharing these videos with us.

We also have images for the cover of the game in the US, EU and Australia. We thank -Wonkothesane- for letting us know of these. The game is available to preorder on Amazon right now.

Reminds me of 'The Rise of the Darkspark' 3DS game in terms of look and gameplay.

I have already said to myself than XMORPH DEFENSE would be a good inspiration.

I enjoy the art style but I am not sold on it yet. I'll wait for more reviews and possibly a sale. :SG-CONS: :SG-BOTS:

That game was really fun, I would of loved it if we had a port of that version with more features/characters.

A review of the game has been posted to gaming website Siliconera.

According to this review, while the game is nothing groundbreaking, it may be a little more sophisticated than initial reactions have suggested.

DEVASTATION is not a beat'em all because the shooting is stronger than the melee,speedruns are a good demonstration.

It's an adaptation of a TV serie into video game,it's unique unless they are very lazy.

I got the game oly 4 days ago,i study it it for a speedrun in difficulty3(Maybe limited to individual act).

SPOILERS!

1-2:B shots on his right and goes to the closest front cover before a cyclone2.By pushing him twice:He can reach the objective at turn 3.

1-4:Spread the team like they are ,B will need his car.

G goes to the left and shot twice before to go for the one behind.W shots the truck next to an enemy,B moves and use his car to reach the other.Direct them in front of the bakery.

Buy the precise shot.

2-2:PS the first enemy,smoke only the second.

A uses her car and spins into the group,B shots the enemy behind an explosive.

2-3:Push the team and removes several enemies,

Begin with a push and a Eflame2,G on the boss,Wind at middle,Wheel between the rocks.

Buy the double helix shot.

3-1:Probably the worst level with 3-4,i'm surprised the shield1 doesn't protect from anchor.

3-2:G prepares his personnal ambush2,A shots the truck on the right,then,G explodes it and you add a car.

G camps in the middle,grab the boss and axe the next enemy,A shots the explosive and goes to the right.

3-5:Replace G with B and his explosion.A takes her spread shot.Spare the first ennemy.

Direct everyone on the left(B next to W,A behind).Let the reinforcements group themselves.

3-3:B takes his shots that can project:"the projection",and removes the very first ennemy.E3 from W,P3 on right,G shot the rectangle,Eflame1+Bite3 on the big duo.Paralyse the last ennemies.

So,the secret of this bad weapon is to detonate the explosives easily like the shield1.

Direct everyone the farest as a triangle,add a power buff and destroy the boss with a Eflame2+bite.

3-6:O goes for the one behind,Wind shot on left and goes behind him,grenade2 on Nova and he goes next to O.Charged shot3+ED1,she shot and cover.Helix3 on the reinforcement.

O covers on right,Wind on left,Wheel shots the middle a second time and goes next to O.CS3 and grab on right,2 shots on the boss,finish with ED1.

4-1:First move on the right cover,that's enough.You go for the objectif that replenish your AP and you escape with the car.

Go to the farest as usual but alignate W with O.Do an IC3,then,a PS3 hopng for anchor,O grabs on the left instead of an axe2,shots the other from behind,he grabs and axes the reinforcement.

4-2:It's possible to remove 3 enemies with an helix3+Spin(Everyone behind the cover on left).One Emove on the reinforcement.

A moves far minus 1P.Remove the enemies with explosive cover,the grab will allow it at turn 2.Sacrifice 2 characters in the storm,what a joke.

4-3:Replace O with A,you'll need 3 grenades and the Estomp2 on the boss.Move to the farest minus 1AP.

Push the left enemy into the storm.

4-4:begin by directing everyone behind the energon container.O takes his explosion and Ejump.Wheel must ends his second turn next to the explosive energon,it will attracts all the reinforcement:Wcar+Bshot(explosion).

The arcade mode worth nothing.

3-1:remove every enemy except the last ones,You'll need the Edive1 at turn 1(Wheel goes to right),2)She shots the rectangle,a second time at 4),3)Edive2 and shot,then,she goes behind the truck,6)helix1 and ED2 between the ennemies,7)O grabs the first ennemy without extra attack,Wind shots the truck and ED2 the two last ones(for anchor,the farest possible).

Hide behind the middle of the rocks.Surround the boss with explosion and ED.

3-4:Replace A with G and his personal OW,as well as the one for O,W take his explosion.
Direct everyone behind the first cover,O left,his first ambush one P behind,W right,no shot,G behind and camp.2)buff G and remove the ennemy on right(Always comeback),3)Eflame1+OW1+E3,4)G removes the one on left.

O grabs and axe1 the first enemy before going to the green cover like previously.You'll be able to knock out the boss with an explosion.2)G goes to the right side,second P,O take his place next turn after EF2.The ennemies behave a bit randomly.

2-1:take the katana.A goes through the ambush and shots the car,W goes in front of the enemy.Use his car and shield1 the truck.

Don't waste energon gain.Wind receive a S1,shot a quadripede and Edive2 the boss.Katana3,then,A shots the explosive and goes to the right,Wheel S1 the truck,finish with a Edive1.

2-5:Shot,grab,don't move,axe2,move,axe2.

W can solo the boss with her Edive1 and katana3(No walls),it's better if the PS anchor Thrust.

4-5:Don't move O and G,the others move next to the cylinders.O will fights the boss with his shield by himself for long.

1-3 and 2-4 are nothing interesting.
Soundwave:push G and direct him behind the cover,diagonal bite+cyclone3.B shots an explosive and finish the boss if necessary.

More levels are more important than characters but they can do both.

The price has been reduced by 30% which is 12.Is it gonna be the one for the DLC?

One important thing i didn't said is that you can reset a second part by quitting and that reset the ennemy meter which is necessary in 2-1,2-3 and 3-5.

In quest of a bigger challenge,i came back to CODE NAME S.T.E.A.M,i reached 8050 in the emerald city(Speed team) and 4950 in the graveyard(Bomb team).I also studied the all gears speedrun:Lion become more or less the main character,he can create giant shortcut.

Also,i came back to FF REVENANT WINGS not for the bad story.4hours and half should be possible.

Truly the end until they add something new.

(double post bug)

SHATTERED SPACEBRIDGE...I don't like it much.Some tips:you need the paralysis to do the bridge early.One achievement demand you to not use it,upgrade your stats longly,the heal grenade,the double helix and precise shot help a lot,the charged shot is not obligatory.

TRIANGLE STRATEGY...In 3 terms:The levels are very small and the ennemies are very endurant UNTIL you find something broken.It was like that in the FFtactics on DS that i have played.That's not good.

A bit more of a judgement:

-the player's actions take too long,i will take as a reference:ADVANCE WARS DAYS OF RUIN finished in less than one hour,this game takes around two but not because it's bigger.

-the arcade mode is nothing exciting same for the one of DUAL STRIKE where maps are long and decided very early by the commander choice,one may look impossible if you don' flood with Sensei.The one with decepticons is very small:4 maps of 3 turns,2 for the fourth.

-spawn kill fest...DOOM ETERNAL hardest difficulty speedrun are like that,the game may kill you only with pre-spawned ennemies.It has a bit of that as well,totally the two last levels.

-lack of ennemy variety,the most complicated ones are the bosses and should be the main focus,the Emoves are like a combo system on them,the last Shockwave requires three in one turn,immunity to some effect is something to consider,the paralysis is counterbalanced by inflicting no damage which works but still...Ejump+shield from Optimus against the final Megatron,that's good but he is not that damaging.

-no sound test?Doesn't justify a sequel.

The next game will be based on a show:EARTHSPARK and probably the movie,it's part of the merchandize more than the promotion.CYBERVERSE gave some precise fight abilities to Bumblebee,Windblade and Grimlock,a shield for Optimus,some good inspiration for a RTS.
