Cult Video Game Essentials: Transformers – The Headmasters

A video game based on the cartoon series of the same name  was released by Takara in 1987 for the Family Computer Disk System (FDS). It can be played in either Single player or multiplayer, and it uses a Floppy disk.

In the game, players control one of the Autobot Headmaster through four planets – Earth, Cybertron, Master, and Jail fighting the Decepticons. Unlike it predecessor, Mystery of Convoy, players cannot switch between robot and vehicle mode, as they are predetermined by level.

 

Players also cannot choose which Autobot to play.

Players must collect them throughout the game, as they will be flown in by helicopter and will replace that Autobot when they die. Due to Headmasters being for the FDS, the game came with a save game feature similar to those found in early Zelda and Metroid games.
