Batman The Movie storyline is mainly based on the 1989 block-buster, and offered five different gameplay-style stages with impressive visuals and sound. It was ranked as one of the best movie tie-ins computer games back in the early 90's, and released on several home platforms such as the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, PC (DOS), Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum by Ocean Software.
 
Review
Batman The MovieBatman must save Gotham City from The Joker. There are five levels in total. The game starts in the Axis Chemicals, were Mr Jack Napier became the monster he is the Joker, and includes all sorts of toxic substances are leaking from pipes and dangerous gasses being exuded into the air. This stage is a classic platform style gameplay. The Joker's men are everywhere and Batman needs to be nible to avoid them. His is using Bat-rope to climb higher or swing over gaps and his Batarags to take down the enemies (who will shoot and drop bombs at him in frenzy). After defeating Napier, you must jump into the Batmobile, in which the real thrill begins, and the aim of this stage is to sort out the Joker's van which is speeding through the streets of Gotham City. You need to avoid all of the other cars but you also have to turn corners at breakneck speed by firing a grappling hook to catch onto a nearby lamp post (you only have three choices, and if you miss you run into a police road block). Ocean have correctly given this most attention. It plays like an ordinary - high quality - racer.
Next is the Batcave stage, where you have to select three different increments of the lethal Smilex toxin, guessing the correct combination (by the simple method of elimination) so you can hand over the Smilex formula to the police.
In the next level you control the Batwing and you swoop low over the carnival taking out the balloons filled with nerve gas (Smilex) that Joker is using to hold Gotham City to ransom.
Finally the Cathedral stage which plays same as the Chemical Axis, in which defeating the maze of the cathedral finally puts you face to face with your arch enemy, the Joker.

The Atari ST version offers identical graphics detail and number of colors with the Amiga version (the MS-DOS version running on VGA mode uses only 16!). Note that the ST version runs smoother here when compared to the PC version, but quite slower when compared to the Amiga. The backgrounds are very well drawn and detailed when in 2D, but the driving sequences are impressive and nothing short of superb.
Apart from the graphics, the in-game music and sound effects on the ST version are good (you can choose either SFX or music), though I was expecting at least some digitized sound effects (found only in the Amiga version) while the PC (MS-DOS) version is poor and limited to speaker beeping.
