Glu Mobile, publisher of mobile games, today announced launch of Transformers G1: Awakening, a mobile strategy game based on the popular entertainment franchises, Transformers.    Transformers G1: Awakening  follows the highly successful 2007 mobile game  Transformers and is the second title Glu has developed and published from Hasbro’s  Transformers franchise.

“The Glu team has put a lot of hard work into developing and publishing a second  Transformers game on the heels of the 2007 game’s global success,” said Jill Braff, senior vice president of global publishing, Glu. “Transformers G1: Awakening  features completely different gameplay from the first game. Players participate in explosive turn-based strategic battles that include characters and elements from the original storyline, appealing to loyal fans while also bringing the classic series to new fans in a fun and challenging way.”

Transformers G:1 Awakening takes players back to the franchise’s roots and includes the characters, storyline and classic visuals from the original  Generation 1  series -“ the hugely popular original cartoon that spawned a pop culture phenomenon. Players use the Autobot’s strengths to defeat the Decepticons in turn-based battles derived from the original TV series.

The game has received critical praise in the press. In a recent 8/10 review which gave the game a silver award on, reviewer Keith Andrew remarked: “This is a strategy title that doesn’t rely on a love of the genre. This is a Transformers title that’ll appeal to audiences far beyond the franchise’s traditional fan base. Either the world has gone mad, or is this just a damn good game?”

Features Include:

  • Full screen 3D battle scenes (on supporting handsets)
  • Up to 23 characters from the original animated series
