Avoid this game. Every time I start up the game it always ask for my iTunes password.

Went ahead and downloaded. The very first thing that happens is it asks you for your iTunes password, twice. I didn't view this as wrong or anything as it is the actual Apple verification method. So then once you get in the game it is just terrible. It has low frames (iPhone 5), terrible instructions, and crappy menus. Download for the joy of having Astro Boy, otherwise don't. It isn't worth the time or giving them the downloads.
