Batman: The Caped Crusader is a combination of an arcade and adventure game. The game is played with a side scrolling view, with each new location opening in a new panel similar to the appearance of a comic book. The game has two parts to it. In the first, The Penguin is back, and planning on taking over the world with an army of robotic penguins. In the second half, The Joker has kidnapped Robin, and it's up to Batman to save him.
