  • Summary: In ASTRO BOY: THE VIDEO GAME, players become the iconic hero, Astro Boy, and take to the streets and skies on an epic adventure to save Metro City from the clutches of the evil President Stone and his robot army. Utilizing Astro's entire arsenal of iconic weapons and abilities - Super Strength, Flight, Arm Cannons, Butt Machine Guns and Drill Attacks - players battle hordes of robot enemies and colossal bosses including some never-before-seen enemies across Metro City and the mysterious Surface. Using an intuitive combat system that adds depth to gameplay, players experience classic platform action and exhilarating combat levels as they use Astro’s unique rocket boosters to hover, avoid enemies and zip out of the way of danger.

  1. The Astro Boy coating is there so kids ask mommy and daddy to spend their holiday bonuses on it, but High Voltage Software felt nice enough to sneak in a fun game too. It’s like the whiskey Grandpa adds to the eggnog.
  2. Astro Boy: The videogame has been made so quickly thinking in the film. The story mode is a little simple and boring, with the arena mode lack of innovation. Astro Boy is an older franchise with older visuals and playability, a little difficult to find a perfect audience.
  3. This movie-inspired videogame is simply an ordinary arcade, wasting a story which could have been better exploited.
  4. The story mode clocks in at roughly three hours in length, and the Arena mode does little to add value to the package.
