| A great 2D side-scrolling arcade that had some of the best graphics of Atari's portable. The game was well known for being notoriously difficult.|
Closely mirroring the movie's plot, Batman Returns makes you the defender of Gotham City, as you run, jump, and fight through four scrolling levels. Your enemies are a motley crew of thugs, police, and penguins, while you fight back with Batarangs, acid vials, and your fists.
The game is very difficult to play! I hardly managed to finish the first level! The gameplay is rather boring too. You can just jump here and there at each stage at get the job done until the final stage boss! No need to hit the enemies till then!
Well, the graphics are nice, having nicely drawn backgrounds though they get quite boring after a while... and getting a bit repetitive too. All of the backgrounds have been done before in countless other games on every system since to dawn of side scrolling games. Even the latter levels are just as uninteresting as the first levels. Also the sprite animation lacks of frames. The sound though is good, having in-game music themes though a few nasty SFX.
