Transformers Hits Arcades
Shooting and driving games, with collectable cards.
Earlier this year, Sega announced that it would be making a couple of kids-oriented games based off the Transformers Animated license. Those games, Transformers Animated The Chase and Transformers Animated The Shooting, made it out to arcades on Friday.
Transformers Animated The Chase is a car action game where you chase Decepticons through the city, making sure that you don't run out of oil. Successfully attack three Decepticons, and you'll advance to the next stage.
Transformers Animated The Shooting is a gun shooting game where you shoot away at Decepticons . You can perform a multi target bomb attack by lining your trigger with multiple foes.
Both games use cards for selecting your in-game Autobot. The Chase has 36 cards, one side showing the Autobot in car mode. The Shooting also has 36 cards, only the Autobots are shown in robot mode. The cards can be used in both games.

Transformers The Animated first aired in America in December 2007, but only saw release here in April.
