About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Namco today announced "Atomic Betty" for the Game Boy Advance. A mission-based game with puzzle solving elements, "Atomic Betty" features a three character control scheme that allows players to enjoy all of their favorite characters at once, utilizing their individual skills to save the universe.

Developed by Breakthrough New Media/Big Blue Bubble, "Atomic Betty" is scheduled for release in November 2005 with an anticipated "E" rating.

Betty has a lot more to handle than most little girls. To her friends and family, she is your average, girl-next-door, but when the galaxy beckons, she becomes Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos. With the help of her trusty sidekicks, Sparky and X-5, Betty must save the galaxy from the evil Maximus I.Q., while at the same time saving her reputation on Earth from the scheming of her archrival, Penelope. "Atomic Betty's" five playable characters, rocket ship travel, selectable gadgets and weapons, and fast-paced story bring the cartoon hit to life.

"'Atomic Betty' rockets kids into the action-packed world from the hit cartoon series and lets them be the hero," said Jeff Lujan, Business Director, Namco Hometek. "Young players will be able to experience a new style of game play with 'Atomic Betty's' easy-to-use three character control scheme. Playing as a team adds strategic depth to the game that kids will love, and allows fans to take control of all their favorite characters. "
