Transformers: Earth Wars – Autobot Rollcall With Bonus Slug Spotlight
Lots of cool art and bios today from Space Ape games as we approach the ever closer launch date of Transformers: Earth Wars on mobile devices. I have to say, one of the most enjoyable aspects of this release is the heart felt dedication that the team over at Space Ape has about this game. We can’t wait to play it, but in the mean time here are the bios and art to keep you sated.
Committed, inspirational, selfless. Optimus Prime is all these things and more, a born leader and idealistic to boot. But what makes him a truly great leader, is his own lack of hubris, his seeming inability to place his life, his worth, above any of his fellow Autobots, or in fact any other lifeform. He believes passionately that freedom is the right of all sentient beings, and would gladly sacrifice himself to make that belief a reality.
A rampaging force of nature, Grimlock is the most feared and powerful of the Dinobots, as irascible and savage as the T-Rex his beast mode is modelled on. Combat is in Grimlock’s spark, and periods in between battles are simply periods of great frustration and seething resentment. Any display of weakness is worthy only of contempt in Grimlock’s optics, but he’s not as dumb as he likes people to think, and his courage on the battlefield is the stuff of legend.
Bumblebee is among the most open and receptive of all the Autobots in terms of befriending other species, his wide-eyed wonder at his surroundings and his irrepressible enthusiasm, combined with a genuinely affable personality, make him perfect for first contact with an alien species. But don’t let that fool you, he may be small but Bumblebee packs a punch in any battle, and he’s unflinchingly loyal to the Autobot cause.
Blaster (& Eject/Rewind/Steeljaw etc.):
Loud, proud and in-your-face, Blaster has a zest for life and an unquenchable appetite for action. The louder and more intense it gets, the more it sparks his circuits.The opposite of sneaky, he prefers to make his presence known, literally assaulting his enemies with sound and fury. But his special passion is good old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll, and his ability to monitor multiple frequencies and channels has exposed him to a wide variety of music.
Blaster is aided by his three cassettes Eject, Rewind, and Steeljaw who are both fearless on the battlefield and amazing at reconnaissance, making Blaster and his team a force to be reckoned with.
Few assimilate local knowledge as readily and easily as chief scout Jazz, who devours alien culture with a hunger that can only be described as voracious. His knowledge of local terrain, geo-political nuances and customs makes him indispensable, and not only is he good at what he does – he does it with style. He may not be biggest gun on the block, and he can get distracted, but he still pulls off the seemingly impossible with cool panache.
And if that wasn’t enough for one day, we have the character spotlight for the Dinobot Slug stomping at you!
Check back soon for more goodies!
