Astro Boy Dash, A 3D Runner Featuring Astro Boy And His Sister Uran

By Ishaan . August 24, 2013 . 3:30pm

Animoca, a developer based in Hong Kong, have released Astro Boy Dash for Android devices, as a free-to-play game. Astro Boy Dash is a runner where you dash through city streets and the sky, collecting coins and upgrades along the way.


While Astro Boy Dash is a basic running game, Animoca have added a few bells and whistles that they point out on the game’s info page. For example, the game has seamless day and night transitions, different costumes that you can purchase or unlock, public leaderboards and two playable characters—Astro Boy, or Uran, the Astro Girl.


Astro Boy Dash is in development for iOS platforms as well, but that version of the game doesn’t have a release date yet.

    Has Astro boy been accepted by the rest of the human population yet?

      Even if he isn’t, we’ll always have Astro Boy: Omega Factor on the GBA. That game is amazing, especially if you like Beat ’em ups.

      That game’s what got me interested in Tezuka in the first place.

        Same, I had a passing interest in Tezuka (God of Manga? Whatever…) till I played that game. I’ve supported the Kickstarter for The Crater, bought the game and searching for all of his works since.

        It’s great for beat em up and shump fans and that first ending is… so great. I’m going to play it later now…

      • I was hoping someone would mention Omega Factor. Is there anything that Treasure does that isn’t absolutely great?

      Astro Boy is well known in mainland China, with Tetsuwan Atom clothing stores in quite a lot of malls.

      Even China’s biggest actress, Fan Bing Bing has said her nickname in the studio was Tetsuwan Atom because she was always hurrying from place to place.

      So Japan+ the world’s most populous nation know Astro Boy
