Hasbro’s Transformers franchise spans over three decades, beginning with the original line of transforming toys in the early 80s and continually expanding over the years to various media such as comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. And you’re more than welcome to experience nearly every era of Transformers history by playing the new iOS game Transformers: Forged to Fight.
One shall stand, one shall fall
Transformers: Forged to Fight is an action-packed game done in the vein of Marvel: Contest of Champions — indeed, both titles are developed by the same studio, Kabam.
It’s a 3-D fighting and role-playing game with elements of character collection, challenging you to assemble the ultimate team of Transformers bots from just about everything the franchise has appeared in: from the ever-evolving line of action figures and the comic books to the animated TV series and the blockbuster movies, from Autobots and Decepticons to Predacons and Maximals.
As you assemble your team, you’ll fight other players and forge alliances with your friends in battles that take place in 360-degree arenas, allowing for a variety of attacks and moves such as ranged blasting and swift dodging.
While you’re at it, you can complete missions across a new storyline set in a universe where the existence of corrupted Transformers robots and their evil overlords have given rise to a massive planetary battlefield.
Transformers: Forged to Fight is a no-brainer for Transformers fans as it brings together some of the most iconic bots from nearly every generation of the Transformer franchise, including Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Waspinator, Rhinox, Grimlock, Soundwave and more. But even for players with little or no fondness for or familiarity with the franchise, the game has plenty to offer, not least of which are its intense battles and impressive visuals that stunningly showcase the characters’ trademark robot-to-vehicle conversion.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Transformers: Forged to Fight is available now on the App Store for free, with in-app purchases for various in-game items. The game requires a persistent internet connection to play.
