|Batman Returns is a great 2D side-scrolling action game that shows some of the best Atari Lynx graphics. The game is known for being notoriously difficult.|
STORY / GAMEPLAY
Closely following the movie's plot, Batman Returns makes you the defender of Gotham City as you run, jump, and fight through four side-scrolling levels. Your enemies are a motley crew of thugs, police force and penguins (!) while you fight back with Batarangs, acid vials and your bare fists. The game is very difficult to play! We hardly managed to finish the first level! The gameplay becomes rather repetitive after a while. As Batman, you jump here and there in each stage and get the job done until you reach the final stage boss!
GRAPHICS / SOUND
Well, the graphics are great, with nicely drawn backgrounds - though they get quite dull after a while- and a bit repetitive too. Such backgrounds have been done before in countless other games in any system since to dawn of the side action scrolling games. Even the later levels are just as uninteresting as the first. Also the sprite animation lacks some frames. The game's sound, though, is good with in-game music themes and a few basic sound effects.
