Astro Boy: Omega Factor Guides and Walkthroughs
Astro Boy: Omega Factor is a beat 'em up video game developed by Treasure and Hitmaker, and published by Sega (THQ in Europe). The game was released for the Game Boy Advance console on December 18, 2003, in Japan; August 18, 2004, in North America; and February 18, 2005, in Europe. The game is based on Osamu Tezuka's manga and anime franchise Astro Boy. However, it also features characters and stories from the artist's entire canon of work.
While Astro Boy had been well known for decades in Japan, the North American release was postponed to coincide with the premiere of the Astro Boy TV series in 2004. During this delay, Treasure made some game improvements to the North American version of the game. The game received positive reviews from critics, with strong praise focused on the game's aesthetics, and limited criticism on level design. In 2010, the game was included as one of the titles in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die.
