Batman Forever is a game released for the Sega Genesis, the Game Gear, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the PC and the Game Boy. It is based on the movie of the same name.[1]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Riddler and Two-Face are on the loose in Gotham City. It is up to Batman and his newly-adopted partner in crimefighting Robin to bring those two in to justice.

This game is an unusual hybrid of side-scrolling platformer and one-on-one fighter. You make your way through levels that include some platform jumping elements, but you typically take on opponents one at a time like in a fighting game. Your arsenal includes a lot of nifty bat-gadgets, and a collection of fighting moves that are unleashed with special button combinations.

The graphics were rendered completely with digitized actors and objects, but none of the actors from the movie make an appearance in the game.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The game has received mixed reviews.[2]

Platform differences[edit | edit source]

Handheld versions do not include any multiplayer mode and only Batman is playable unlike other versions. [3] [4] [5] [6]
