Ladies and gentlemen today we are going to be checking out the closed beta of transformers forged a fight, so it’s currently a game that’s set to be released in spring, but they released a beta vet just exclusively available in Denmark.
It’s heavily based from what I understand on Marvel contest of the Champions so anyway I’ve done enough intro blabbering let’s let’s jump right in I’m not one for too much roleplay guys so let’s just the tap through this quickly there we go.
I noticed in the trailer, and it looks like the maps for this game in Marvel contest of the champions are like two-dimensional ones, but these are like real world map so you kind of like explore those.
Transformers forged to fight is a mobile game about giant robots hitting each other to bits. It fits into the same Game class as the likes of DC Game : Injustice and Marvel Contest of Champions of KABAM.
Though it’s closer to the Marvel vision than the DC one, there are transformers from a variety of different eras of the robots in disguise law. The controls give you a decent amount of options when it comes to the violence.
The plot revolves around a crash landing on a strange planet from there you start your collection of Autobots and Decepticons and go around punching anyone who looks at you. Funny the game is split into two parts.
In the first part you’re moving around a precisely linear map spending energy and sometimes collecting resources.
The second part is where the violence happens compared to other card brawlers. Like this, you’ve got a surprising amount of control over your box. Everything is taps and swipes, but you can change the distance between you and your foe.
To change the options combining together, different attacks is key as well as making sure you’re not taking a beating from your enemy by using blocks and dodges. There’s a rock paper scissor style system that gives certain robots advantages over others so making sure you’re taking the right BOTS into a fight is also important.
You have to choose a team of three, but a larger roster of other machines can be swapped out at the start of missions. Each of the boxes has a reasonably distinctive feel to them. Don’t expect street fighter levels of individuality here. You’re still mashing the same swipes and taps, but you pull off slightly different attacks.
If you’re into Transformers, you might get a kick out of seeing what the different robots do. You got robots from the Bay films the classic cartoons & plenty of other areas as well and collecting and brawling with your new box is actually quite good fun.
It’s all very One Note though so if you’re the kind of person who likes dedicated brawlers you’ll probably find the whole thing pretty say me pretty quickly. So it’s a shallow cartoony brawler where robots punch each other in the face over a hand. Oh… I mean what were you expecting?
