Astro Boy on DS Wii

Astro Boy Screen Shots

Astro Boy is a Shooting game available on the DS Wii.

Astro Boy is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.


We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Astro Boy for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.

Already big in Asia, Astro Boy is here to take over the UK. Just don't hold your breath.

Starting out, the early signs look good. Wow, this kid has canons and really cool powers. 45 minutes later and I've seen these elusive powers maybe 2 or 3 times in between lame punches and badly-timed thrust jumps from a side-scrolling perspective. Yup, that's it. The game has you killing bad guys as you charge along metal-looking platforms and pits, grabbing energy from them to use as power ups.

Astro Boy is a shadow of the game my older brother used to play. This is a film tie in rather than the genuine next game in the series, which for me is a bit of a shame.

Astro Boy is the game tie-in of the recent film release. It features the voices of Freddie Highmore and Kristen Bell, reprising their film roles. In the 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.
