Trivia

1001 Video Games

Transformers appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Cancelled sequel

There was sequel planned based on the Cybertron series, but Atari moved Melbourne House onto another project, effectively canceling it.

Cut content

Some characters were dropped from the game. Demolishor, one of the Decepticons, was to be a boss, and Ramjet, Tidal Wave's Minicon partner, was meant to be an enemy harassing the player prior to entering one of the stages.

Inspiration

This game is based on the series Transformers: Armada, the first series of the Unicron Trilogy. The name comes from the fact that the planet destroying Transformer of the same name has an important role in the series. In fact, the minicons are supposed to be its creations. The other two series are Energon and Cybertron.

Launch party

At the game's launch party, Atari's venue served several signature drinks named for the game-exclusive Mini-cons.
