Retro Gaming 00s- Dragon Ball GT: Transformation (2005)

As many people know the Dragon Ball GT anime had initially become popular in America back the mid 2000’s on Cartoon Network. The DBGT animated series was initially released in ‘96 and lasted until late ‘97 and was basically a non-canon spin-off the legendary Dragon Ball Z animated series. Despite, not being nearly as popular as the DBZ series we still managed to get at least one DBGT video game for Game Boy Advance. Following, the release of Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury in ‘04; Atari came out with Dragon Ball GT: Transformation in 2005. DBGT: Transformation was developed by Webfoot Technologies and published by Atari and was a 2D action beat em up game. The storylines within DBGT: Transformation covers the Black Star Dragon Ball and Baby arcs with players being able to control multiple characters. Playable characters in Dragon Ball GT: Transformation included Goku, Trunks and Pan for the main story mode. The story mode contained twelve different levels with the final stage being on the Tuffle Planet. The final boss battle was against Super Baby Vegeta while players controlled Goku in his Super Saiyan 4 form. In addition to the main story DBGT: Transformation had additional game modes including Endurance, Boss Endurance, Piccolo and Robot Swarm which added to the game’s overall replay value. Despite, the graphics and quality of gameplay not being as good as the Legacy of Goku trilogy from ‘02-‘04; DBGT: Transformation was still something that hardcore fans of the Dragon Ball series could easily sink their teeth in.
