In Astro Boy's first game for the Game Boy Advance, Astro needs to both stymie the bad guys and connect with the souls of people he meets. Connecting with souls add to his "Omega Factor," which represents human traits. Every time Astro Boy connects with a person, he becomes more human-like and gets to power up one of his six super powers.
Astro Boy gets around by walking and using his jet-powered legs. He fires on his enemies with an arm canon, finger laser and three special weapons. He also has limited super sight and X-ray vision capabilities. When you meet a new person, you're given a chance to upgrade any of these abilities or upgrade his health meter.
The jet-propelled, side-scrolling action takes Astro Boy to several different locales, and with three levels of difficulty, you control how tough your opponents are. In each stage, Astro Boy can only use his super powers a certain number of times, so choose wisely. You might need to reserve your powers to take on the boss at the end of the level.
He's not a bird or a plane, but Astro Boy is super at smacking down his enemies. The three levels of difficulty make this action game more intriguing, like the main character himself.
