Batman Sega Collection – Batman 1990

Controls:

Move = Arrow Keys

Batarang throw = A

Jump = C

Punch = X

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman also known as Batman: The Video Game is a video game released for the Sega Genesis, which was inspired by the Tim Burton-directed Batman film from 1989.

The Genesis version was also produced by Sunsoft.

The game is more faithful to the film’s plot than the NES version and features levels in which the player controls Batman’s vehicles.

Gotham City Street: Batman fights his way through numerous henchmen on a rainy night in Gotham.

The Axis Chemical Plant: Batman infiltrates the Axis Chemicals plant, fighting Jack Napier’s henchmen, and then knocks Napier into the vat of chemical liquid, transforming him into the Joker.

Flugelheim Museum: Batman makes his way through the museum, fighting the Joker’s henchmen, and fights the large, boombox-wielding henchman, Lawrence.

The Batmobile: Batman and Vicki Vale are inside the Batmobile, escaping from the Joker.

Gotham City Carnival: Batman, piloting the Batwing, must cut wires connected to the Joker’s parade balloons, inflated with Smilex gas, to save Gotham City.

Gotham City Cathedral: Inside the city’s colossal cathedral, Batman progresses to the final confrontation with the Joker.

Unlike the NES version, this version stays closer to the plot of the film, and features the Batmobile and Batwing in the form of horizontal shooting levels.

While the NES version allows three unique weapons and unlimited continues, the Genesis version only has the Batarang as a special weapon with limited continues.

The grappling hook is an additional item.

The game also deviates from the film plot because, in the film, Batman attempts to save Napier from falling into the chemicals, but fails.

However, in the game, Batman actually knocks Napier into the vat.

This game has several cutscenes, with the player advancing to the next destination after defeating a boss character.

Like the NES version, the music was also composed by Naoki Kodaka.

Batman Sega Collection – Batman: Revenge of the Joker

Shoot = Z

Jump = X

Kick = C

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman: Return of the Joker, known in Japan as Dynamite Batman (ダイナマイトバットマン? Dainamaito Battoman), is a 1991 platform video game, the follow-up to Sunsoft’s first Batman game on the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Unlike that game, which was based on the 1989 Batman film directed by Tim Burton, Return of the Joker is entirely self-contained and based more on the modern comic book iteration of Batman.

However, Batman mans the Batmobile from the 1989 film.

A remake of Return of the Joker, titled Batman: Revenge of the Joker, was released on the Sega Genesis by Ringler Studios in 1992.

Each version of the game is essentially the same in storyline and format.

The story begins with the Joker escaping from Arkham Asylum, and through various henchmen, trying to send Gotham City into chaos.

Batman must survive several side-scrolling levels, as well as defeat five boss levels, to ensure that Gotham is safe.

Batman is armed with a utility belt that allows him to collect various types of icons throughout the stages in order to shoot different types of batarangs and projectiles.

The console version of the game uses a password feature which allows players to return to any non-boss level which they have previously reached.

For the Genesis Revenge of the Joker, Kodaka’s soundtrack was adapted by Tommy Tallarico.

Batman Sega Collection – Batman Returns

Controls:

Move = Arrow Keys

Use Selected Item = Z

Punch = X

Jump = C

Cycle through Items = Enter (Pause game and use arrow keys to select items on belt)

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman Returns is a video game for various platforms based on the movie of the same name.

The Sega console versions were published by Sega themselves.

The Mega-CD/Sega CD and Mega Drive/Genesis versions of the game are more or less identical, as they are both two-dimensional platforming games similar in design to Sega’s previous movie-based Batman game.

While different versions follow the movie’s plot from start to finish, the Sega versions start after The Penguin kills the Ice Princess and puts the blame on Batman for killing her, as shown in the game’s introductions.

Batman Sega Collection – Adventures of Batman and Robin

Controls:

Move = Arrow Keys

Attack = Z or C

Jump = X

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

The Adventures of Batman & Robin is a series of video game adaptations released between 1994 and 1995 featuring the DC Comics characters Batman and Robin based on Batman: The Animated Series (which had been retitled The Adventures of Batman and Robin for its second season).

The games were released for numerous platforms, with the Genesis, Game Gear, and Sega CD versions published by Sega.

The Genesis version, developed by Clockwork Tortoise and published by Sega, is a run ‘n’ gun where both Batman and Robin must stop Mr. Freeze, who plans to freeze Gotham City.

In order to keep the duo busy, he also frees the Joker, Two-Face and the Mad Hatter, each one with their own agenda.

The Joker celebrates his birthday wreaking havoc in Gotham and stealing diamonds, Two-Face tries to take over the city from above, and Mad Hatter is creating a robot army in his surreal lair.

The game can be played by two players simultaneously; one player with Batman, and the other with Robin.

Both characters are identical in terms of playability, and both use batarangs, bolas, or shuriken in long-range attacks, while using melee attacks at short range.

There are four levels consisting of several stages, mostly of a straight left-to-right traverse to the end where the boss awaits.

In some levels the game switches to a side-scrolling shooter, in which the players must control the Batwings.

The game features a dark techno soundtrack by Jesper Kyd.

Batman Sega Collection – Batman Forever

Low Kick = C

High Kick = D

Low Punch = Z

High Punch = A

Block = X

Grappling Hook = S

Start/Pause = Enter


Excerpt from Wikipedia:

Batman Forever is a beat ’em up video game based on the movie of the same name.

The player plays as either Batman or Robin. There is also a fighting game mode called “training mode” where the player can play as Batman, Robin, or any of the enemies found throughout the game against either a computer-controlled opponent, against a second player, or cooperatively against two computer opponents.

The controls are largely based on move lists and key sequences.

Some gadget moves involve moving away from the enemy right before pressing a punch or kick button.

The gadget list is selected by the player each level, with three standard gadgets for each character and two gadgets selected from a list.

There are also four hidden “blueprint” gadgets.

There are two kinds of Co-op modes in Batman Forever.

Players chose between Batman or Robin. In one mode, Batman and Robin work together and cannot harm each other, although they share credits.

In another mode, however, Batman and Robin can attack each other, but still need to look out for enemies and have separate credit counts.
