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


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.
