TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS Now Available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android Devices

Players Must Align with the Autobots or Decepticons to Determine Earth’s Fate
in New Real-Time Combat Strategy Game from Hasbro, Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games


BOULDER, Colo. – June 2, 2016 – Hasbro Inc., Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games today released TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, a new real-time combat strategy mobile game featuring the most iconic characters in the Transformers universe. Published by Backflip Studios (DragonVale, SpellFall, Paper Toss) and developed by Space Ape Games (Rival Kingdoms, Samurai Siege), TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS breaks new ground for the genre, pairing authentic Transformers storytelling with fast-paced gameplay, beautiful 3D animation and hundreds of characters with diverse strengths and abilities. The game is available now for free download on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and on Google Play for Android devices.

“The Transformers franchise is one of the most iconic in the world, so it is exciting to include these characters in such a compelling mobile gaming experience,” said Julian Farrior, CEO of Backflip Studios. “We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro and Space Ape Games to launch TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS and think that Transformers fans are going to love teaming up with their favorite Autobots or Decepticons in these highly engaging mobile battles.”

Inspired by Hasbro’s “Transformers Generations Prime Wars Trilogy,” TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS players must choose to fight with Optimus Prime and the Autobots or Megatron and the Decepticons in a battle to decide the fate of planet Earth. Once allegiance has been sworn, gamers assemble a powerful team of playable characters, raid enemy bases for Energon stockpiles, and construct the Space Bridge to add reinforcements from Cybertron, all while playing in real-time against other players around the globe.

The game also features notable storytellers and voice actors from the Transformers franchise, including dialogue written by comic legend Simon Furman and voice acting from Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, and Frank Welker, the original voice of Megatron.

"TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS offers players an engaging storyline and incredible gameplay experience,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. “The game harnesses the unique strengths and abilities of hundreds of characters from Transformers lore, which really helps it to stand above existing real-time combat strategy games and delivers on the Transformers promise of More than Meets the Eye.”

“With TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, our team was dedicated to making a high quality, hand crafted experience that fans of both mobile games and Transformers will enjoy,” said John Earner, CEO of Space Ape Games. “We’re really excited about the finished product and can’t wait to help grow and support the community around this game.”

Optimus holding his Energon Axe in-hand rather than it materializing from his wrist makes it now essentially function like a Rescue Bots Energize tool. :P

But your reward character doesn't show up. Supposedly they're 'working on it'. Not a good start to the game if the devs can't deliver on their pre-registration offer.


It is also launch day, so some things are bound to have bumps in them. Give them a day or so?
Besides neither one of those bots are anything to write home about and you'll be tossing dupe bots aside after a short while.

Jump in, join one of the Seibertron alliances; Uncle Seibs needs you! ;)^


The full game has been available for a few days at least, it's just now in the US app stores. My issue is that it's a bad looking start to not make good on offers right out of the gate. I'll be rejoining the Seibertron alliance once I get enough along again in the full game.

Strangely you can still play the Beta too, even though the full game is out.

Despite them screwing around with a lot of things during the beta, I really can't fault their technical support.

Has anyone else playing the Decepticon version noticed a weird - albeit very minor - graphical glitch with Blast Off? When he's walking around the base, the jet on his back is completely extended out. Like, the tailfin's hanging off him and everything; and the cockpit is left as if untransformed on the toy. It fixes itself once he transforms to jet mode and transforms out of it, but it's still odd lol.

Hahaha, I'm not but I've noticed that Ironhide and Ratchet do the same thing with the hood sticking out of their chest.

That happens now and then. I've caught Thundercracker walking around half transformed with his wings already rotated down ready for flight.

The latest one is Long Haul, he just doesn't display at all so he's a little black triangle on the battlefield.

What's your in-game name Kurona and are you interested in joining the 'Con Seibertron Alliance?

I've been playing around with it and I'm having fun. It's mostly a "set and forget" type game but the battles are an interesting way to progress through the story. I love the transformation sounds! It brings me back to the good old days watching them on TV. :CON:

Colors are different, but there's a lot of details that seem way too close to be a coincidence.

It's not just you. I commented on it pretty much as soon as he came out but nobody acknowledged it, to my annoyance. So thank you.
That Bot wrote:Managed to pull Tantrum from the space bridge...... don't tell Hasbro but I'm pretty sure they modeled him after MMC's Bovis.

I compared it to his toy and various fictional depictions and it doesn't resemble them nearly as much as Bovis. SpaceApe, I see what you're playing at.



So I've got the full game, now I'm wondering if there's any way to port over my data from the Beta or if I have to do that full grind again. Some parts I don't mind but it's a bit uphill at the start. If I could at least turn off hints....
