Transformer Games

Is it a bird? Well, no, because it looks more like a machine, but is it a plane? Or is it a shape-shifting robot of extra-terrestrial origin that can shift back and forth between states comprising of either regular, inconspicuous vehicles or huge, terrifying battle monsters with a rich back-story and an insatiable desire to battle? Well, whether you’re a Decepticon (even their name is evil) or a good-guy Optimus Prime, you can bet we’re talking about transformers here, a franchise which has spawned a fair few films, TV series, and indeed video games that seem intent on bringing us a variety of portrayals of the ultra-cool robots that have a fondness for battling. Don’t worry though, since not all fun games cost actual money to play; at Friendly Robotics, we have some flash-based transforming action to keep your hunger for explosive action at bay, and all for less than the cost of absolutely nothing because, well, they’re flash-based games and are free to play.

If you are one of those people that simply love the taste of victory, it is imperative that you give Transformers: Victory is Sweet a little go. Victory is most definitely sweet when you’re a powerful transformer that gets to wander around in a third-person perspective equipped with various weapons that you pick up along the way. Use the mouse to aim the crosshair and the left mouse button to shoot as you use the WASD keys to move around, dodging enemy attacks, picking up various replenishing items, and generally giving the Decepticons a hard time. Victory is most definitely sweet in this game, particularly when firing multiple rounds of explosive ammunition at your enemy and watching them get blown sky high as a result.

If you’re well-versed in the world of Steam and its sublime games, then there is a duo of Transformer games that offer you a great deal more than any flash-based game ever could. Transformers: War of Cybertron is the first of this duo, offering an impressive 3D experience with incredible graphics and a great deal of content to keep you going. You can create your own Transformer and edit it to your liking, enter a campaign, or even play online in a multiplayer that rivals the best that Steam has to offer. In Transformers: War of Cybertron, you even get to play as either the Autobots or Decepticons in a sort of Opposing Force-style twist, allowing you to play as either the antagonist or protagonists to give you the most out of the experience. Further customisation and generally explosive action can be enjoyed in the sequel, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Further multiplayer action and weapons/robot customisation makes this a greatly improved experience that both looks and plays better than the original.

If you really can’t imagine yourself parting with any money for your Transformers gaming experience, or simply don’t fancy becoming part of the Steam community, there is always Autobot Stronghold to try. In contrast to the all-out shooting action of Victory Is Sweet, Autobot Stronghold is a more strategic affair whereby you must place robot towers to defend against the Decepticons. The tower defense is much more challenging in many ways and also gives you the opportunity to use various Transformers such as Bumblbee, Ratchet, Jazz, and Optimus prime, each with their own particular advantages and unique properties that make them fun to use as towers in your tower defense-based Transformers experience.
