From the rulebook:
In the future...
After losing his only son in a car accident, a genius scientist named Dr. Tenma created a robot in memory of his son.
This robot was a scientific wonder unlike any other robot that existed.
He had six super abilities including 100,000 horsepower strength, rocket-powered feet, and the Omega Factor, which allowed him to experience human emotions.
Throughout the world, large numbers of robots were created to assist humans, however, the human race soon became afraid of the robots' capabilities.
The people are now trying to destroy the robots, causing the robotic race to rebel.
Underneath it all, someone is plotting a scheme to create even more tension and ultimately bring war.
Astro, who embodies both humand robotic traits, stands as a bridge between the two races and will always fight to reunite these two factions.
Astro must use not only his super powers, but his human Omega Factor to bring peace to robots and humans.
