One of the most fun games on the Commodore 64
5 August 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Out around the same time as the first Tim Burton movie this Batman game wasn't about the Dark Knight but the Caped Crusader. It resembled the campy 60s show and the more colorful comic-books but it was still a lot of fun to play.

The comic-book panel representation of the graphics was brilliant and the 'Dizzy' style puzzle solving elements quite engaging. What let the game down slightly was the beat-em-up element because you could never totally kill the baddies (Batman doesn't do that) and they'd just keep coming back for you, even when you kicked them off a roof. The tough edge of Batman doesn't really come through where as the detective side to him does.

The game was actually 2 separate games on either side of the tape (remember loading tapes?) with the Joker story on one side and the Penguin story on the other. Both were as good as each other and it was fun to alternate between them. Definitely one to check out.
