Jump = Z

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (known as Batman of the Future: Return of the Joker in Europe) is a scrolling beat ’em up video game, released by Ubisoft for Game Boy Color, PlayStation and Nintendo 64.

The game was released to coincide with the film of the same name, and is largely based on the original TV series.

Similar to games like Final Fight, Batman Beyond plays as a beat ’em up-type game where the player, as Batman, wanders through levels that are essentially side-scrolling, but have some depth to allow for three dimensional movement.

The game is fairly simple along those lines.

The game received mostly negative reviews by critics on the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 versions.

The Game Boy Color version received mostly mixed reviews.

Batman Gameboy Color Advance Collection – Batman: Vengeance

Jump = Z

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman: Vengeance is a 2001 video game that was released on all major platforms of the sixth generation of console games.

It was developed and published by Ubisoft in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics.

The game is based on the television series The New Batman Adventures, itself a successor to the widely-acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series.

In the game, Batman finds himself entangled in a web of his villains’ schemes while attempting to stop the Joker’s plan to destroy Gotham City.

Based on most of the game’s character designs and appearances, Batman Vengeance would seem to take place after the conclusion of Batman: The Animated Series, but before the start of The New Batman Adventures.

Plot points that support this include Mr. Freeze still posing as a threat (as his appearance in The New Batman Adventures episode “Cold Comfort” was the last time he was seen prior to Batman Beyond), as well as the fact that Batgirl is the Dark Knight’s only active sidekick in the game.

Batman by this point is well established as the guardian of Gotham City, with the game sharing the voice cast, production design, and continuity of the DC animated universe.

During the course of the game, Batman is monitored and assisted by Batgirl in the Batcave.

Batman Gameboy Color Advance Collection – Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu

Controls:

Move = Arrow Keys

Jump = Z

Punch = X

Toggle Item = C

Use Selected Item = D

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu is a 2003 beat ’em up video game released for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, Game Boy Advance and GameCube consoles.

It was developed and published by Ubi Soft in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics.

It is based on the television series The New Batman Adventures and is a sequel to the game Batman: Vengeance.

As Batman, the player has to fight groups of enemies.

The story mode, which forms the bulk of the game, can be played either alone or co-operatively, and rewards players for completing levels not only by continuing the story, but also with an upgrades system.

This allows players to purchase new moves for their character and other game bonuses.

There is also a challenge mode in which players (either cooperatively or competitively) take on groups of thugs without a storyline.

The game is played under a time limit, and features co-operative play.

It also has 4 different difficulty levels: ‘Easy’, ‘Medium’, ‘Hard’, and ‘Dark Knight’.

Batman faces a new enemy unlike any he has faced before.

This mysterious foe plunges Gotham City into chaos on the night of the anniversary of Bruce Wayne’s parents’ murder.

Apart from Sin Tzu, other Batman villains featured in the game are the Scarecrow, Clayface, and Bane.

Batman is aided in his quest to save Gotham by Robin, Batgirl, and Nightwing.

One of the main draws to the game was that it introduced a new character into the Batman universe, as Batman: The Animated Series did with Harley Quinn.

This new character, Sin Tzu, was created by comic artist Jim Lee.

However, Sin Tzu did not gain popularity as a character and was never to be seen again in any media, with the exception of the game’s novelisation.

Batman Gameboy Color Advance Collection – Batman Begins

Controls:

Move = Arrow Keys

Jump = Z

Double Jump = Double tap Z

Punch = X

Block = C

Throw Batarang = D

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman Begins is a 2005 video game.

It was released June 14, 2005, a day before the 2005 American superhero film.

It was developed by Eurocom and published by Electronic Arts in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics.

It was released on Game Boy Advance, GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

The game has a unique system involving intimidation.

Whereas most superhero games require straightforward fighting, Batman Begins features the utilization of the environment to frighten opponents.

Certain gadgets designed to frighten enemies during combat are provided, such as smoke grenades, flash bang grenades, and an ‘HF Transponder’, which summons bats to gather around and incapacitate enemies with fear.

On top of this is traditional stealth gameplay reminiscent of the Splinter Cell series, such as sneaking.

There are many ways to incapacitate enemies with stealth, using various combat and martial arts techniques.

The game follows the movie’s plot very closely, with minor modifications.

Throughout the game there are over 20 clips from the film that give context to the story.

Though it follows the movie, the game goes deeper into each scene. For example, at the docks, the player learns specifically how Falcone was hoisted on a crane and how Batman infiltrated Arkham Asylum.

It also presents a slightly alternate ending; Batman is forced to detonate the Batmobile in order to destroy the monorail tracks and stop Ra’s Al Ghul from reaching Wayne Tower with the Microwave Emitter, whereas in the film, Sergeant Gordon uses the Batmobile’s missiles to destroy the tracks.

Two members of the film’s crew make cameo appearances in the game; Wally Pfister, the film’s director of photography, appears as a mob informant Batman interrogates, and Emma Thomas, producer of the film, appears as an Arkham psychologist.

The only scene in the game that is not taken from the film is a second car chase with the Tumbler in which Batman attempts and fails to stop the theft of the microwave emitter that Ra’s Al Ghul will use in his attack on Gotham.
