The Appera reviews Transformers Awakening on iPhone

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 18, 2010 | News,Video Games |

All the talk at the moment might be about the impending release of Transformers: War for Cybertron from Activision, but true G1 fans were more excited about the release of Transformers G1 Awakening on the iPhone… at least I was after I saw the screenshots.

The game was released last month and costs just $4.99 – a real bargain for any Transformers fan, and acts as a sort of strategy game on your phone. IGN played it and proclaimed it to be the best Transformers game they’d ever played. Now Appera has also reviewed the game, and they agree – the game is awesome and stays true to the G1 franchise.

Have a look at the review here, then if you’re interested you can buy the game from iTunes here.

Now, can you get it for the HTC Touch?
