Weekly Time Waster - ‘Transformers: Bumblebee Overdrive’

We’ve seen a lot of the “Transformers” franchise over the years, watching our favorite cartoon characters of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee come to life. When you make movies about awesome, alien transforming robots blowing things up on a regular basis, there are bound to be games that crop up on the same subject.

The latest iteration of that particular game-type would be “Transformers: Bumblebee Overdrive” - we’ll abbreviate it to “TBO” for short.

Based vaguely on the new “Bumblebee” movie, “TBO” combines the game styles of top-down racers and top-down combat to create a fun and refreshing gaming experience that you might have found in an arcade. Playing as the beloved Bumblebee, you are set on an adventure with car chases, explosive shootouts and – as with any retro arcade game – boss fights. In each level, you must race at high speed, collecting coins along the way to reach a Decepticon base. When you arrive, Bumblebee transforms into his mechanized self and you are set for a top-down full-frontal assault on the base, taking out enemies and defenses. Then, when you get to the heart of the base, a Decepticon boss awaits you for a final battle.

The coins you collect on each level help you to unlock other notable Autobots such as Optimus Prime, Sideswipe, Jazz and more. This game really brings back the joy that was 80’s arcade gaming, with the gameplay, stylized graphics and even soundtrack to boot!

“Transformers: Bumblebee Overdrive” is free to download on the IOS and Android stores. Autobots, roll out and download this game!
