Transformers battle card game coming to Android and iOS

Shares

If you are looking for a new mobile game to help your commute time flow a bit faster, you might want to keep your eye out for the newest title from mobile games developer ngmoco. Transformers (working title) is a battle card game that looks to have some of the same gameplay and design ideas that come from the popular Rage of Bahamut title from under the Mobage umbrella. In Transformers, you can play as both Autobots and Decepticons to build the ultimate team of giant, killer robots in disguise to which you can take on story campaigns, and battle other players online.

Although we weren't able to see the game in action, we were able to gather a few details on the title's features. Two separate story campaigns will be available and consist of an Autobot path requiring players to defend Earth, or seek out and stripp the world of it's Energon resources as Decepticons. During the campaigns, you'll be able to take missions that will reward items that can be used to enhance your deck. 

If you find new character cards, you can either add them to your deck or use them to power-up your characters using Fusion. For instance, owning an Optimus prime character card, then fusing it with an Optimus Prime alternate transformation card creates a much more powerful character with better abilities and nice new art to gawk at. 

All of the art is inspired from the generation one character designs and slightly modernized. When we chatted with the developers, they emphasized their passion for the Transformers property, saying fans of the old television series will be happy to see their favorite characters show up in the over 100 cards available at launch. Regular world events will give players the chance to unlock super rare characters, and new character cards will be added to the game daily, once it is launched.

Expect to see the Transformers mobile game in the iOS app store and Android marketplace this September.

    Ok, I considered myself past the point of trying any new card games but this seems like something I'll have to try out at least once.

    This looks rather interesting. A fast-paced transformers game doesn't sound very functional on the iOS, and it should be pretty cool to see a card game that isn't solitaire or bridge.

    A Battle Card game for a handheld gaming unit. Doesnt sound too exciting. A Transformers game would be liked ALOT more by people. not a game with lack of action and gameplay, to push cards around with still pictures. POO POO
