Official Website

Transformers: Animated The Game was originally revealed in a leaflet included with the USA release of Transformers: Animated Transform and Roll Out DVD, in June 2008.

Activision, current license holder for Transformers games, hired Quebec based developer Artificial Mind and Movement to bring the Animated universe to life on the Nintendo DS, replacing Vicarious Visions, who worked on Transformers: Autobots and Transformers: Decepticons.

Like the comics, the story was conceived by Marty Isenberg, who is the story editor for the cartoon series.


Adventure beyond the animated series – Gamers experience TRANSFORMERS Animated in a whole new way in this action-adventure game based on the animated series and featuring several of the characters and environments fans enjoy.
Play as your favorite AUTOBOT characters – Players instantly switch between AUTOBOT team members using their special skills and unique individualized weapons to overcome enemies and challenges. They can take down a boss with OPTIMUS PRIME, outrace foes with BUMBLEBEE, break down barriers with BULKHEAD or outmaneuver enemies with PROWL.
It’s all about teamwork – Faced with a number of challenging side-scrolling puzzles, fans must utilize each AUTOBOT team member to solve problems. Working as a team and combining the abilities of each AUTOBOT is the key to recovering all three Allspark shards before the DECEPTICONS.
Speed through the Detroit motorways – Gamers experience slot-car racing-inspired driving at high speeds as they race through a fictitious 22nd century Detroit in several fast-paced driving challenges.

Critic Review Scores
The game received generally average scores with praise being made for the voice acting, team based puzzle gameplay and visuals. The driving sections and the lack of any depth to the game were seen as the main negative aspects.
