''Astro Boy: Omega Factor'' (Known in Japan as ''Astro Boy Tetsuwan Atom'': ''Atom Heart no Himitsu'') was based on Manga/AstroBoy, released in 2004 for the GameBoyAdvance after the Anime's 2003 Reboot. It was developed by Creator/{{Treasure}} and Hitmaker and published by Creator/{{Sega}}. Many consider this game an aversion of TheProblemWithLicensedGames, and a fitting tribute to Creator/OsamuTezuka.

** A word of advice: if you're playing on Hard Mode, don't bother upgrading your health more than one or two times. Instead, upgrade your Punch and Laser abilities first, so you can beat enemies more effectively. Having Level 4 or 5 Jets to avoid attacks better is also crucial; without decent-level Jets, Atlas and Sharaku are nigh impossible to beat. Once you've maxed out those three abilities, ''then'' you should work on maxing out everything else.



* ContinuingIsPainful: Downplayed. Your score is reset upon continuing...but you're given a full life bar (no doubt a relief considering this game's difficulty), in contrast to Treasure's ''Super Gunstar Heroes'' and ''Advance Guardian Heroes''.

* NintendoHard: On Easy you begin each life with, ridiculously, 30 Super attacks and can stock up to 99 of them and enemies deal very low damage. On Hard? Nightmare. Enemies will tear about half of your HP with the lightest of attacks, you can have only 3 Supers now and there are MANY things that can kill you in a single hit. Let's state that we are not talking about bottomless pits or death spikes. Rebirth Mode is a living hell on ''any'' difficulty. What's worse is that there barely are any recovery items in each chapter and some of them are supposed to be the level ups that only work once.

** Some of the Omega Factor characters are hidden frustratingly well. While Max Sensors helps (Astro will point out when a character is in a given segment), you'll still be spending a lot of time looking around.

* TearJerker: The death of Dr. Tenma's son, Tobio; And him grieving for his son as he creates Astro in his image. And this is the ''first scene'' in the game.
** The first ending of the game, where Death Mask arrives and destroys all robots on Earth, [[spoiler:including Astro]]; leaving behind a world completely ravaged by years of war between humans and robots. [[spoiler:Don't worry though, it's not over yet...]]
** The story of Daichi and Prime Rose. Which becomes even more so when you learn later that the two of them aren't actually gone.
** Drake himself is truly a tragic villain, having been pushed over the edge entirely by the belief that his daughter was kidnapped and killed by a robot, leading to his hatred of robots with him vowing to do everything in his power to avenge her death.

* ScoringPoints: The game has various high score and best time tables for each level on the three difficulties. It also records if you were able to beat an chapter or the entire game without dying. Of note is that after Astro's normal combo sets a 4x multiplier on the score, using one of his special moves as a finisher increases it to 5x.
* ShadowArchetype: At one point Astro claims that Atlas is this.
