The Master System version of the Batman Returns game is a side-scrolling platformer developed by Aspect and published by Sega in 1992. Here, you’ll guide the cape crusader as he fights through hordes of circus clowns and other goons defeat Penguin and the Catwoman.
Batman must move through five stages, including the streets and rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck’s department store, the sewers, and the Penguin’s lair. For the first four levels, a route can be selected from two options, allowing for different paths through the game.
Enemies standing in Batman’s way can be defeated by throwing the Batarang at them. At the beginning, the weapon’s range is quite limited, but can be expanded by collecting power-ups. Batman can also use his grappling hook to pull himself up to higher levels or swing across dangerous areas.Added to that, there’s his cape, which can be used as a parachute during falls.
