About

Osamu Tezuka: The universally revered “Godfather of Manga” gave the world myriad hit series and beloved characters such as Astro Boy , Black Jack , and more. Tezuka’s creations have been brought together and newly redesigned for the modern age in a brand new card battle game―the first-ever official Tezuka-based title for PC, and Astro Boy’s first game appearance in eight years―like nothing you’ve ever seen before! This perfect blend of newly updated but familiar faces and carefully crafted gameplay make this title a can’t-miss for both old-school manga fans and PC gamers alike! Astro Boy: Edge of Time is a PvP card battle game in which you fight the CPU or other players one on one. Be the first to reduce your opponent’s HP to zero to win. Strategically place the cards randomly distributed from your deck into each respective zone and use them to launch attacks on your opponent’s HP. Enforcers and Guardians Each zone is split into two rows: front and rear. The front row is occupied by Enforcers. The cards placed here can be used to launch attacks. The rear row is where Guardians are placed. These cards cannot be used to directly attack your opponent, but they are able to protect your HP. You cannot deal damage directly to your opponent’s HP until you’ve taken out all of their Guardians. Quantum Each time your turn comes around, your “Quantum” number will increase by 1. You can hold up to 10 Quantum at once. This number represents the number of cards you can use for each turn. The number displayed in the top left corner of each card represents that card’s cost, and this is the amount of Quantum that will be consumed by using that card. Your Quantum will be replenished to maximum capacity for each turn. Will you set the cards dealt to you as Enforcers, or Guardians? How will you time your attacks? Do you start positioning cards one by one from your first turn, or do you wait till you’ve accumulated enough Quantum and unleash a single devastating attack? Emerge victorious, or be destroyed – it all depends on your strategic skills. Four Online Battle Modes Ranked Matches: Intense PvP battles which reflect on your player ranking Random Matches: For more casual―yet sometimes hardcore―matches Friend Matches: Quickly jump into battle with a friend anytime Tournament Mode: Strategically utilize randomly dealt decks to compete with other players The eclectic roster of characters featured in Astro Boy: Edge of Time have all been gathered from Osamu Tezuka’s Star System – the shared universe inhabited by the Tezuka’s own personal favorite characters from his various works. Each and every character in Astro Boy: Edge of Time has been painstakingly redesigned specifically for this game by an unprecedented lineup of master artists, breathing new life into all the classic Tezuka characters that fans throughout the world have grown to love while still retaining the core elements that make them who they are. Ambassador Magma × Hiroya Oku (GANTZ) Black Jack × Grasshopper Manufacture (LET IT DIE, The Silver Case) Atlas × Hiroshi Matsuyama (.hack) Challenge players from around the globe to see if you’ve got what it takes to emerge from battle victorious!

Good card game, something awkward and little fluid, but it shows the effort and dedication of the developers. The game is not in Spanish and even when I was never interested in the saga of Astroboy (who would do with the childish and innocent that was the protagonist?) you hooked with the variety of cards gloomy thematic, its futuristic context and argument that at certain points Desconcier Ta but it attracts. I Do Not know how it evolved, perhaps they could start with: Create an encyclopedia (which would be very useful to buy a few short thinking about a future strategy and motivating players to get them); Incorporation of rewards for daily PvE that help to assemble a varied deck for those who do not have much time to win game currency by winning more advanced players in PvP; Adding a link from the store that allows you to open the envelopes directly (Ahorrandote the hassle of returning to your shelter to go to where they open the envelopes); And I still don't know much about the game but with the rich and varied universe of Astroboy I would expect the cards to acquire new skills, merge in game, or something else as the gameplay dynamics are very poor. I'Ll be Back to this game in a while to see if I change my mind but for now I recommend it to be creative, recover an apparently prolifica and exciting saga and give life in a GCC system, with style and quality.

Astro Boy: Edge of Time is a Free-to-Play Card Tactics Game. It comes to me an unusual Presentation and, above all, unusual Beginning. I didn't know for a Long time what kind of game before me flickers and what I'm supposed to do here anyway. I was surprised by the fact that it is about a Card game. But I always install a whole Swing Of games from Steam And don't even look at what games they are beforehand. I like the Surprise Effect:-) As a Card Tactics Game, I see Strengths and Weaknesses. The Setting, the Story, the Look of the Cards I like quite well or stand out from the otherwise largely "usual" fantasy setup. But I think that the Game system has been heavily worn down in genre sizes, but I think it's good that the Wheel is not reinvented and you quickly come in because you know. I also think that you can buy Currency for Cards, that helps something against P2W, which can always pose a certain Problem with such Games. But the Game itself runs quite tough, because it seems to be strong with me. The Look from the Pitch I don't think it's much done. With me, the Story doesn't really work in the Sense of catching and irritating me, maybe also because of the anime look. I have now found out that it is based on a Manga or an Anime, which is of course nice for Fans of these Stories and for whom the Entry Into the Story background is likely to be easy. So, solid and something different Card Tactics game that is sure to be worth a Look for Fans of History and for Fans of card tactics games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX5LOaB-liU
