Astro Boy the Video Game for Nintendo DS is the game tie-in for the Astro Boy movie now playing in theatres. If you’re a fan of old-school side-scrolling games like Mega Man but always felt they needed more flying and less checkpoints, then you should definitely check Astro Boy out.

Spaceman

Astro Boy is an old-fashioned platforming game that thankfully avoids using the touch screen for any major functions, leaving you to your reflexes, power-ups and robot destroying gameplay. You can heal yourself, use a shield, fire your laser arm cannon or machine-gun behind, but bear one thing in mind: this game is hard. No matter how young or old you are, you will die often at the hands of bosses. Don’t be afraid of dying, or having to start levels over, because you will if you want to finish this game. I liked that though.

The Final Frontier

In fact, I really liked that some of this game’s bosses absolutely destroyed me and forced me to start the whole level from the top. Although this game doesn’t give you lives, it does save your game, so you’ll never have to start the game from the beginning of the game, only a level. It’s always humbling to have to start a level over and this game is enough fun to keep you wanting to play, even if you’re taking a beating.

Pioneer

Whether you join Astro Boy in Metro City or not is up to whether you think you can stomach the hard-boiled and largely uninspired gameplay, blending flying stages with simple combo combat ones. I’m glad I did. If you don’t mind a bit of a challenge you will be too.
