  • Summary: Betty has a lot more to handle than most little girls. To her friends and family, she is your average, girl-next-door, but when the galaxy beckons, she becomes Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos. With the help of her trusty sidekicks, Sparky and X-5, Betty must saveBetty has a lot more to handle than most little girls. To her friends and family, she is your average, girl-next-door, but when the galaxy beckons, she becomes Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos. With the help of her trusty sidekicks, Sparky and X-5, Betty must save the galaxy from the evil Maximus I.Q., while at the same time saving her reputation on Earth from the scheming of her archrival, Penelope. "Atomic Betty's" five playable characters, rocket ship travel, selectable gadgets and weapons, and fast-paced story bring the cartoon hit to life. Expand

  1. I was very surprised at the level of ingenuity in this title. It would have been easy to make a sub-standard platformer, slap an Atomic Betty label on it, and call it a game. Instead, we get a character-switching puzzle game, with well thought-out levels and some increasing difficulty.
  2. Much like the distinctive homegrown television series, Atomic Betty's sophomore GBA venture is screwball, carefree fun at its very best and a tribute to how far the Canadian gaming industry has come in such a short period of time.
  3. A better-than-average game for kids, and one that will keep them on their mental toes, to boot.
  4. The game looks good, although the sound is somewhat limited. The story is told through bright little static images lifted straight from the show.
  5. This may be a good title for younger players familiar with the cartoon. It has some variety, the levels are short and the atmosphere is light.
  6. It will certainly entertain the younger crowd, and probably fans of the show as well, but if you don't fit into those categories, I would probably look for my GBA fix somewhere else.
  7. Simply put, there's just not much substance. Almost everything there is to experience can be found in the first couple of levels, and what little is added to the game later on certainly doesn't make it worth a play-through, much less a purchase.
