Conclusion: Gameplay: Well, like I said before, this replicates Mega Man pretty well, but the overall feel is in keeping with such Treasure classics as Gunstar Heroes.
Pros: I love everything about this game! Seriously, what's there not too like here. Catchy music, infectious gameplay, and sweet bosses! It's literally got everything you could want from an action game!
Cons: I'd say that the only drawback is that in order to finish the entire story, you essentially do have to play through the game twice. Of course, I can't completely say why you do or else I'd be spoiling it for you.
Summary: As a fan of the more modern Astro Boy anime series (although not of the more recent film) I felt that this was a must-buy. Although it doesn't exactly follow the plot of the series, the usual characters make their appearance, however briefly, as well as a number of other characters from the author's other works.
Summary: Astro Boy is developed by Japanese company 'Treasure'. Treasure have an unparalled pedigree when it comes to quality 2D games. Such Treasure games as Gunstar Heroes, Guardian Heroes and Ikaruga are respected by gamers across the globe as some the finest pure games ever created. It seem surprising that the next legendary Treasure game should be an innocous licensed GBA game!
Summary: This gem is easily one of the year's best on the GBA Combining Challenge, Excitment and Strategy into one powerful game. Anyone can enjoy this game, fighting your way through treasure ridden levels to fight the dominating boss at the end. You'll be able to find a true challenge on the "Normal" or "Hard" modes -- even with the provided unlimited continues.
