These simple gamebooks are aimed at a very young audience and lack any sort of formal game system or rules. The adventures in the series all stand alone (they were released as unnumbered volumes), and each casts the reader as a child who becomes involved with the Transformers in some way. Interestingly, an American Transformers series featuring almost exactly the same format was released at the same time as these books as part of the Find Your Fate line. The only real differences between the series are that the British books are first-person while the American ones are third-person and that the American books portray the Transformers in a manner more consistent with the animated films and television shows based on the toys. Even though the British Make Your Own Adventure with Doctor Who books were reprinted as part of the Find Your Fate line, the British Transformers adventures were not similarly integrated and thus never made it to America, nor did the American Find Your Fate books see British publication.
