A Top Player’s Quick Review

As someone who played this game for almost 2 years since it dropped on Apple Arcade and recently transitioned to the App Store, I can wholeheartedly say that this is a 10/10 game. Its issues are few and greatly outshined by its positives. The gameplay rarely gets boring and repetitive only once you get closer to the top (above 3000 VP). The art style, designs of the characters and Arenas, and the soundtrack are all amazing and are pleasant to indulge in outside of the core gameplay. The players also have friendly communities on both Reddit and Discord where they join together to discuss the game, and the devs at Red Games Co. seem to be listening and making any changes to the game that players request, so don’t forget to join those. However, being a relatively new game, there is an obvious lack of content, especially when compared to Clash Royale, with there being 71 cards in the game, and the grind to unlock and max out all of them can take years to complete if you play for free, but with enough patience you will unlock everything and the game has to offer. Also, this game is a way healthier alternative to Clash Royale, with only a few bad apples sprinkled here and there, mostly closer to the top of the leaderboard. So, in conclusion, if you’re a fan of Transformers and enjoy Clash Royale’s gameplay without all the toxic and negative stuff, this is the game for you.

So after playing for a week, I managed to reach the top 17% (already made it to the Earth City) The gameplay is simple enough for an average player to understand. This is obviously a cross between clash royale and transformers, the only things I would do to make it better would be to add different versions of the characters. For example, a flying ALT version for Megatron (of course it would have to be more than 7 though) would add some dynamics. A version of Optimus Prime with his flying gear would add some dynamic. Pretty much, at this point, you don’t necessarily have to add new cards, but just remixing what you currently have would be able to more than double the amount of options a player has in team selections (I would make it that you are only allowed one version per deck of a single card to prevent people from having 3 different megatrons for balance purposes) I would also add different game modes to show the dynamic of the Transformers world where a player has to fight through an arena that makes it more strategic on both ends (like, if the planet would randomly burst out lava for a specific game mode that affects both sides of the arena) Overall, the game is well done. My biggest addition would be to make variants of the characters you already have, I know for sure that would increase the strategy of this game.

Good alternative for the genre, needs work

It’s another clash royale clone but with robots in disguise. It’s not necessarily pay to win- but it’s absolutely pay to progress. This alone will turn away large amounts of the player base. Can only have 3 boxes at once and only one of each kind at a time. You acquire money VERY slowly, even in the epic chests. Income can be made in ways that won’t push players away, i.e. skins, emotes, etc. The current setup is almost as bad as needing “energy” to play. For example, I’m ranked in top few k of players and am stuck (once you hit league). I’m constantly pit against players with units 3-4lvs above mine, which can barely damage. So I can’t earn more boxes. There’s no alternative modes, no guilds, no replays, no tournaments, etc. So there’s no way to progress or earn it unless you buy it. The units are cool with great diversity, the artwork is nice, but the game play is really fluid. Huge plus for me. The ALT ability for the units is a unique idea that allows a lot of flexibility in decks. I enjoy it, but is really lacking content. It’s a great game that needs to be fleshed out to reach it’s max potential. Good job devs, keep devving! Just remember to reward the ACTIVE players (even the f2p) or they leave and the game dies.
