About Astro Boy: Edge of Time

Astro Boy: Edge of Time is an online card battle game where players can go head-to-head to try to win by getting the HP of their opponent down to 0 first. Both players start out with a deck consisting of 30 cards and use “Quantum” to summon units to the battlefield and utilize gears. 

The battlefield is composed of two sides, and each side contains both an offensive “Enforcer Zone” meant for attacking as well as a defensive “Guardian Zone” used to defend the player. Fundamentally, only units placed in the Enforcer Zone can attack and directly attacking the player to lower their HP is only possible as long as there are not any Guardians out on the battlefield.

Players will need to utilize skills of cards based on the original works and hone their strategies if they want to come out of the battle victorious.

The Story

Dark forces beyond understanding have consumed nearly all that exists. Ripped to shreds, left for dead, those that find themselves still alive find hope in an unseen power that transports them safely to “The Sprawl”, a city that exists outside the normal flow of space and time. 

Humans and robots alike coexist in this new world, building themselves a new peaceful existence. Until Goa, the King of Darkness arrives...
