This looks a lot better than that horrendous Nintendo DS movie tie-in Astroy Boy featured in

Was just looking for an Astro Boy game

That's funny, JUST last night I was searching the App store to see if there were any Astro Boy games. My daughter loves Astro Boy.

Nice 2D graphics. Does the gameplay hold up though?

Got it for my 8-year-old but had to try it out myself first . It's exponentially better than the garbage AB game based on the movie. It definitely has a mobile phone feel, but it's a pretty solid little platformer with surprising depth. Recommended for the price.

Looks like this has been pulled from the US app store for some reason. Too bad, it's a fun little platformer.
