About The Game

Players can choose to protect the Earth as AUTOBOTS or destroy it as DECEPTICONS and will also experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of their favorite ROBOTS IN DISGUISE such as BUMBLEBEE, BARRICADE and others.
- Protect Or Destroy The Earth with Nintendo's Wi-Fi – Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection enables players to engage in the "AllSpark Wars" where they must help their side win the global conflict between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS via daily challenge missions and global player stats comparisons.
- Battle Again and Again Alone or With Friends – Each Nintendo DS game features 20 unique story missions plus more than 20 challenge missions as well as local wireless multiplayer modes (up to four players) such as Team Death Match and AllSpark Sports.
- More Than Meets the Eye – In addition to playing as some of the most well-known TRANSFORMERS robots, fans are able to scan over 30 unique vehicles and customize their paint schemes.
