The Nerd lists all the different formats a gamer would play for video games, and then shows an unlikely format for the first Transformers game which is a cassette tape. It's for the cassette tape player for the Commodore 64 which gives you a playable game. However it's not what you'd expect for a Transformers video game. It's mostly a simulation game with target shooting theme levels. There was a slide scroller game made for Transformers except it's a Japanese only game. So the Nerd gets out the Famicon which is the only way to play the game and wonders if the game is so bad that it was ignored for American release. And he was right, the game was very difficult and the Nerd complains that the levels hardly consist of color and most of the enemies don't resemble the Decepticons. Written by

The ending screen the Nerd receives was actually 1 of 2 available. The second one reads, "Magnus wa saigo no tatakai ni katta. Shikashi aratana tatakai ga menomaeni sematte iru! Vuke Rodimus! Attack! Rodimuscomvoy!" Which translates to: "Magnus won the final battle. However, a new battle approaches! Go, Rodimus! Attack! Rodimus Convoy!" See more

The title of the game translates to "The Mystery of Optimus Prime", which sums it all up as it's a mystery to why Optimus Prime is not in this game. Instead, it's Ultra Magnus.
