 While you were tucked away in your bed, getting your beauty rest, TouchArcade released the news that Glu Mobile announced that they were bringing their previously released mobile game Transformers G1: Awakening to the iPhone / iPod Touch.  One thing that you should note, this isn't a game based on Michael Bay's interpretation of the Transformers... this is the REAL DEAL.  
 
"Based on the original story of Transformers, use the strengths of each Autobot to defeat the Decepticons in turn-based strategic battles. Capture sources of Energon power to reactivate, repair or upgrade your Transformers. Featuring up to 23 playable characters and a skirmish mode to play friends as Autobots or Deceptions, there is more to Transformers G1: Awakening than meets the eye."
 
The game was originally released on the standard mobile phone platform back in 2008 to pretty good reviews.  If have the original title on my Verizon phone and thing think that it is best described as Advance Wars meets the original Transformers with some resource management thrown in for good measure.  Transformers G1: Awakening is listed as "coming soon" with no release date or further details currently available... keep an eye out for this one.  Until we get official media for the iPhone version, we will have to settle for the trailer of the original release...
