Review | ‘TRANSFORMERS BUMBLEBEE OVERDRIVE iOS’ Taking Us Back to The Transformers We Love

Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive review for iOS 

Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive is one of those games that will take you back to the early days of mobile gaming. It is a beautiful ode to arcade games with a sprinkling of modern day game mechanics, which would have easily sat comfortably with mobile games 10 years ago.

This is not a terrible thing, as it is exactly what Transformers Bumblebee wants to be. The whole purpose of this game is to take us back to early Transformers cartoons, and certainly not Michael Bay’s rendition.

Yes, it a simple single finger game, however, there is so much going on here that calling it a simple game would make me a big idiot.

Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive 

You obviously play as the title character and sometimes you’re the giant robot, sometimes you’re the car. Regardless of what you play as the controls are always the same. Simply drag your finger around the screen to move about.

Don’t mistake Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive for a free-runner. Yes, that is most of the game, however, there are spikes and other objects to avoid, shoot, or barge. You will come across other vehicles too, which you can smash into.

The bosses in Transformers Bumblebee overdrive add a new dimension as well. First of all, you need to work hard for them to even show up. You require a certain number of points. These bosses are all different deceptions with unique weapons and attack patterns. Beating them takes a bit of skill.

The best thing about Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive is that it is so fast paced. The game keeps you constantly moving. There isn’t a single section in the game where you feel like it is being dragged, and nothing overstays its welcome. And if you get turned into scrap metal, you simply start again.

However, if you have collected a few transformers, you don’t always have to start over. Each transformer is like another life. The more you have, the more chances you get. You just have to watch a small video before you can send a new one in. Small price to pay.

Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive has a lot of little challenges that reward you upon completion. Some challenges even move on to other levels. These challenges reward you really well, however, you need to put some effort into this. Given how fun the game is, we have no doubt that everyone will.

Final Thoughts

Transformers Bumblebee Overdrive is not representing the movies franchise, it represents the glory days of early transformer cartoons that everybody loved. You won’t get any of the headache-inducing ridiculous CGI transformers here.

This game is a true definition of a mobile game, in that it is not trying to be anything it’s not. This is not a game that you schedule for in your planner, rather, you will play it when you find some time to kill. And you will keep going back to it because it is so much fun.
