Longtime superheroes Batman and Robin battle kooky villains Two-Face, The Riddler, and their henchmen in this video game based on the popular Joel Schumacher film. To assist them in their pursuit of justice, Batman and Robin are equipped with various gadgets including Batarangs, grappling hooks, flash pellets, slippery goo, and sticky goo. Of course, their fists and feet are their primary weapons. In the two-player mode, Batman and Robin can fight crime cooperatively or competitively.
Batman Forever features eight levels of villainous mayhem taking place at key areas throughout Gotham City. Locations include Arkham Asylum, an institution for the most dangerous criminals; the Second Bank of Gotham, where Two-Face plans to hijack an entire bank vault; the circus, where Two-Face has planted a bomb; the Ritz Gotham, a swanky joint where Ed Nygma (better known as The Riddler) has unveiled his latest dangerous invention which steals the mental powers of Gotham citizens; an abandoned subway, where Two-Face tries to make his big escape; Wayne Manor, home of the Dynamic Duo; and Claw Island, The Riddler's hideout.
As you battle through this game as either Batman or Robin, you can solve riddles placed in your path by none other than The Riddler. The answers to these riddles are clues that will help you get through each level. Scattered Two-Face coins will renew much-needed energy or give you an extra life. Before the action begins you have the option of training in the Batcave Gym, where you can hone your skills fighting holographic images of the bad guys.
Do you have what it takes to assume the role of the Caped Crusaders, using your brains, brawn, and gadgetry to triumph over the dark forces of evil? Find out with Batman Forever for the Genesis. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
