Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark 

 

I like turn based strategy role playing games. There is something about moving the troops around the board that feels like the next intelligent step for the game of chess. Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark on the Nintendo 3DS is a strategy turn based role playing game. With a few twists.

Families get to play Autobot and Decepticon missions in Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark on the 3DS. It all depends on what is going on in the storyline relating to the Dark Spark. What is this Dark Spark? Think of it as an evil Matrix of Leadership.

When robots in disguise get close to one another and attack there is an interesting twist. There are a variety of different attacks players can use. The more powerful ones take a couple of turns to charge. However they can be used in future turns once they are charged. They do need to recharge after being used.

The most interesting thing about Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark is the music based way we attack. Once an attack is picked, a large circle shrinks into a smaller circle. Press the 'A' button as the two circle intersect for the most powerful attack.

Graphically Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark is lacking in the map screens. The battle screens are larger and better looking. They do contain a lot more violence though. The music in this 3DS game is good. The sound bytes are nice. There is some nice diversity to what we need to do to survive in the thirty-two missions.

I hope to see sequels to Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark in the near future. Wayforward put some interesting ideas into this game. I am not big on the rhythm based attack screen (the two circles), but I was able to adapt to it. The characters, and storyline in Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark on the 3DS is really good.
