Transformers Animated: The Game

Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that TRANSFORMERS Animated: The Game, developed under license from Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS), is now available in retail stores nationwide. Based on Hasbro and Cartoon Network’s animated television series, TRANSFORMERS Animated: The Game delivers an exciting action-adventure experience, allowing players to take control of their favorite AUTOBOT characters as they work together to reclaim lost fragments of the ALLSPARK, the source of all Transformers life.

“TRANSFORMERS Animated: The Game adds to the mystique and success of the Cartoon Network’s animated television series, by extending the TRANSFORMERS universe onto Nintendo DS™,” said Kim Salzer, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. “We are thrilled to continue our incredible collaboration with Hasbro, and bring yet another innovative, interactive experience to fans of this highly-successful TRANSFORMERS franchise.”

Providing an experience that extends beyond the animated series, TRANSFORMERS Animated: The Game thrusts fans into the action with gameplay elements that include platforming, blasting through DECEPTICON-controlled hoverbots, solving side-scrolling puzzles and slot-car racing-inspired driving challenges. Players instantly switch between AUTOBOT team members to work out a number of teamwork-based puzzles in up to 20 different levels. They’ll race through a fictitious 22nd century Detroit, dodging on-coming traffic while seamlessly converting between robot and vehicle-form, utilising the special abilities of OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, BULKHEAD and PROWL. Working as a team and combining the abilities of each character is the key to reaching the ultimate goal – intercepting the missing pieces of the ALLSPARK before the DECEPTICONS.

TRANSFORMERS Animated: The Game was developed by Artificial Mind and Movement exclusively for Nintendo DS™ and is rated 7+ by PEGI.
