Looks a bit crap. This is the reality of things though. Devs bite their tongues and do these license games to fund the games they care for.
But this kind of license could be really fun. Astro boy is amazing. A rocket Knight type game or viewtful joe take would have been good. But I cant see High voltage executing it right.

Looks alright to me.

Did you play Astro Boy: Omega Factor for GBA? I was one of the best video game cartoon series tie-in I have ever played, if not the best. I was rated very highly by alot of well known reviewers. Probably the best action game to ever grace the GBA....

This looks alot like it, 2D game with both on the ground and in the air elements, I'm guessing high voltage are getting there ideas from there, very similar gameplay. If this is anything like the GBA one it will rock which was made by Treasue and Sega AM-3.

Did none of ye not play it? I didn't even know who astro boy was before playing this game.

Was going to say the same thing. Looks EXACTLY like Omega Factor. Pure Awesomeness!!!

Not interested. I really liked the cartoon, Astro Boy is great, but not material for a game...

Smilie maybe that's just how I see it.
