Review of 'Batman'

Rating:5 User: Arjun

Batman was the first isometric game I ever played on the speccy and it blew me away. So much so that when I later played Knightlore I was a bit underwhelmed.

This Jon Ritman and Bernie Drummond effort was a very polished and addictive adventure romp that was challenging to play and fun to explore.

Batman can collect various powerups to boost his abilities and there are various bat-accessories that must be acquired before he can begin his mission to rescue Robin from the clutches of the Joker and the Riddler.

There is a distinctive comic book feel to the game right down to the super cute Batman sprite who taps his toes impatiently if you spend too much time thinking rather than doing!

The atmosphere of the catacombs is brilliantly recreated and despite the cute sprites, there is an omnipresent feeling of danger and seriousness that underlie the whole game.

A must play on the speccy!
