Review
Batman The MovieBatman must save Gotham City from The Joker. The storyline is based on the 1989 movie, featuring 5 levels of great action. The game starts at the Axis chemical plant, were Mr Jack Napier became the monster he is... the Joker! Hunt down Napier and fight with his his deadly gang in order to success to the next level. Use your fists, kicks, Batarangs and Bat-rope in order to survive. At the second level, Joker is chasing you and have to escape to Batcave using your Batmobile. You should Avoid obstacles like police blocking the road and others, and believe me is not easy as the gameplay gets frustrating here (hard to control the beast...).

The MSX version offers good graphics displaying all of the original details. The sprites are nicely animated but the action feels a bit slow. Overall the MSX graphics look identical to the Sinclair ZX version as both machines use 4-5 colors on screen mainly in blue and black!
As far as the sound, the game does not feature any main menu or in-game tunes (found on all other 8bit versions) rather than a few sound effects (gunshots, explosions etc). I would expect some tunes when running on a 128k (MSX2) system though, as is in the 128k Spectrum version.
