The Animated Galactic Guardian Saves the
Galaxy and Still Makes the Grade at School in Fun Adventure for Game Boy Advance

SANTA CLARA, Ca., (October 26, 2005) – Leading
video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. today announced that
"ATOMIC BETTY," for the Game Boy(R) Advance, has begun shipping to retail
outlets throughout North America. Based on the hit animated series airing on
Cartoon Network, the game features a unique character gameplay system, allowing

their unique abilities and save the galaxy from the diabolical Maximus I.Q.
Developed exclusively for the Game Boy Advance, "ATOMIC BETTY" is rated E for
Everyone and carries a suggested retail price of $19.99.

A seemingly ordinary little girl, Betty has a big
secret – she is really Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the
Cosmos. As if keeping up in school weren’t hard enough, Betty must also fight
off the scheming Maximus I.Q. and his legion of baddies. Fortunately, Betty’s
friends are always there to help her with her mission, whether it’s finishing
her homework on time or defending the galaxy.

“’ATOMIC BETTY’ brings the adventures of the
galaxy guarding heroine to life through vibrant graphics, a multi-character
gameplay system and an original storyline,” said Jeff Lujan, business director
at Namco Hometek Inc. “Younger players will appreciate the game’s faithfulness
to the hit cartoon series and accessible controls, while more experienced games
will find a lot of depth in utilizing three characters at once to solve puzzles
and ultimately save the galaxy.”

"ATOMIC BETTY" follows Betty and her band of
friends as they attempt to thwart Maximus I.Q. once and for all. In addition to
Betty, players can choose to play as Sparky, X-5, Noah and Paloma in a unique
three character gameplay system. Players can easily switch between any of the
three characters in their group, utilizing each member’s special abilities, such
as jet packs, grappling hooks and kung fu strikes, to fulfill objectives and
take on Maximus I.Q.’s fearsome minions. In between missions, players can hurtle
through the cosmos in Betty’s Hyper-Galactic Star Cruiser, blasting any
asteroids and enemies that stand in Betty’s way.
