    So out of the blue, I check out what games my Verizon phone is now offering and I saw the TF game. Most of the movie games for cellphones suck because the controls are too complicated to use with a cell phone. Anyways, I got it mainly because I'm such a fanboy.

    So it turns out its kinda fun. It's basically a 2D platformer, where you control Prime. Pressing down on the arrow key transforms you into a truck where you get to run over drones and cause uber damage. Pressing up again turns you back into a robot. Pressing the "OK" button gets your gun out and the AI automatically targets drones and you can toggle between targets by pressing certain numbers. The intro is cool as Bumblebee explains that all the Autobots are spread out on earth and the only way to communicate is through MY cellphone, so that the Decepticons don't find out. Well, its something like that. A nice way to draw in the cell phone owner. It really reminds me of the Takara platformer game from the 80's where you play as Magnus but you get a lifebar and what not. It kept me busy while waiting for the train so it has WIN written all over it for me.

    I was browsing through the new games on my cell at work the other day and noticed that one. I nearly pushed the buy button but didn't because it was like $6 for a cell phone game that I thought wouldn't be too great, but I think I'll check it out now.

    I noticed this game too. I have no experience with cell phone games. Is there a monthly fee, or just a one time deal?

    I got the game last night, Megs is hard!:mad  Do we fight him twice like Barricade? Cause there are some locations that I havent reached yet (I know about the multiple paths for the orange locations).

    The strategy for Barricade depends upon which time you're fighting him.

    I'm at the secret chamber room, but I can't make the jump at the end of the stage. Has anyone gotten past this? Am I missing something?

    Thanks, I passed Megs this morning and fought Barricade a third time. I was at the Hoover Dam control location trying to figure out how to break through that third pillar (the thick one at the top of the board) but my cell ran out of power and I didnt get to plug it in in time hehe

    Just wait until he does his pose thing and then get in and start punching him. You can also hit him after two rocket shots as well I think.

    Anyone know how to get past the bots with the green thing on their backs (besides using the gun power up)?

    EDIT: Figured it out, get behind them and hit the green thing lol Game cleared. Fun game.

    on verizon, before you buy it, there's a window that lets you choose if you want it subscription based or just a one time fee.

    might try this tf game, already getting bored of playing poker on my phone.
