The Game Boy was different enough to warrant millions of units sold which was able to solidify Nintendo in this new market that up to that point had been dominated by Tiger Electronics single game pre-defined LCD games that were actually worse off than most Atari 2600 games from nearl a decade earlier.

I actually enjoyed this game quite a bit many years ago.

It is a good game, just quite a bit different than the console versions and much more enjoyable on a better screen like the GBA SP or Game Boy Color (anything other than the original Game Boy).

Loved this back when I had a game boy

Had this game on my Spectrum, absolutely loved it, especially the sideways scrolling Batmobile and Batwing levels.

Man the best version was on the Amiga 500. I got the 'Batman The Movie' Amiga pack that Christmas.

Back in the day when I was good at games. I could complete this game with one life. Loved it. Loved it!
