People say:


Batman & Robin's adventures on the Game Gear would be lots of fun if not for the limitations of the portable system. The enemy bullets shoot in from off-screen, often killing you without giving you a chance. The graphics are really good. In fact, they look like the cartoon. One problem is that when you move, things really get choppy. Batman & Robin tries a bit too hard. If you can overcome its shortcomings, this cart will provide you with hours of action-packed fun.


Well, it looks as if Sega didn't want to give Game Gear owners a break. This game is just as hard as. if not harder than, the Genesis version. Why harder? Because the screen likes to blur when you're running, making it nearly impossible to see the bullets streaking toward you. When standing Still, you'll notice that the graphics are excellent, with almost no color fringing and a high level of detail. As always, the music is bland, but that's expected. Be warned, this one is a toughie.


There really isn't much to say about the Game Gear version, except that it's just like the Genesis version. The graphics are nice, but that's where the good points stop. The worst part of the game is the horribly difficult setting. This is probably the hardest game I have ever played. The game scrolls too quickly, and Batman runs too close to the side of the screen he is running toward. Poor game play also hinders this game. It's for anyone looking to throw their GG to the ground.


This has the same strong points and the same weak points as the Genesis version. On the good side are the graphics--colorful and cartoonish. On the down side is the extreme difficulty of this game. Enemy shots seem to come from nowhere, and you will get frustrated really fast. If you can handle its 16-Bit brother, then you'll like this one as well. However, it just made me want to throw it to the ground. Fast scrolling and tough game play make this a hard one to recommend.

Game Reviews

Batman and Robin have found new life thanks to TVs Batman: The Animated Series. Now they're starring in their own Genesis video game, but unfortunately, it doesn't live up to the excitement of the TV show.

Winged Terror

This is Sega's second shot at making the Caped Crusader a viable video game hero. Unfortunately, this Batman and Robin is a standard side- scrolling platform game with great backgrounds from the show but mediocre action.

You play as Batman or Robin in four long levels, running after the Joker, Mr. Freeze, the Mad Hatter, and Two-Face. Each villain wants a piece of ol' pointy ears and his prepubescent pal.

ProTip: Shoot these grinning grenades while they're still across the screen. They spin when they explode, extending their destructive range.

At the end of each tedious level, you confront a boss, but once you learn their patterned attacks, they're easy to defeat. Getting to the bosses, however, takes patience because of the sheer number of enemies you encounter. Each level is chock full of bat-busting bad guys, from dynamite- throwing mobsters to exploding toy clowns. You'll see more bad guys here than at a political convention, so it won't be long before you're headed to the bat cemetery. The fighting is made more difficult by the unresponsive controls. Jumping and hanging from ledges is tricky and not very productive.

Holding on to ledges to light isnt smart. Jump up and wait for enemies to come to you.

What are your weapons? Good old bat punches and kicks, along with a variety of Batarangs that you collect. Unfortunately, the Batarangs work on a charge system, and while you're charging them, you're susceptible to damage.

Holy Squashed Sprites!

The graphics aren't livin' large. The Dynamic Duo never looked so...helpless! The backgrounds are straight from the show, but the enemies are weird variations of the show's villains. Even the Mad Hatter looks badly illustrated. The other graphics, including the explosions, are eerily reminiscent of Contra: Hard Corps.

The music and sound effects are equally disappointing. Repetitive techno disco fills the scenes, and the punches and kicks sound like snare drums. The trademark Batman theme music is nowhere to be found.

In Two-Face's first stage, stay close to the green- suited villains as you nail them. They give up precious hearts.

Batman Forever?

The Adventures of Batman and Robin on the Genesis just doesn't give you the special superhero rush that it should. Larger-than-life comic-book heroes deserve larger-than-life treatment. Batman and Robin should have chilled in the Batcave a little longer.

  • Watch out for the exploding track lights in the Mad Hatter's stage. They're the most destructive weapon.
  • In Mr. Freeze's chamber, shoot these frosty fiends as you circle them. Their ice bubbles follow you all over.
  • Sega for Genesis

Holy repetition, Batman! The Gaped Crusader and the Boy Wonder are back on the attack in Gotham City. And while the Dynamic Duo is looking really good in this outing, the rest of the game is just kinda so-so. After all, how many evil-twin villains can there be?

Holy repetition, Batman! The Coped Crusader and the Boy Wonder are back on the attack in Gotham City. And while the Dynamic Duo is looking really good in this outing, the rest of the game is just kinda so-so. After all, how many evil twin villains can there be?

Join the Caped Crusader and his rusty ... ah, trusty sidekick Robin. Bound across the endless levels of nasty action, thwarting baddies like the Joker and Catwoman.

Classic Batman scenery and excellent animated quality bring this game some distinguishing features over the many other incarnations of the cartoon-based series of Batman games.

Now translated to a CD-ROM format, we should sit back and expect to be impressed. Perhaps some animated cartoon sequences? Let's wait and see.

Holy portable platform jumping! Batman is back with predictable side-scrolling action.

Batman must hop, skip, and jump through four levels of ho-hum Batarang tossing, knocking off Gotham's goons. But unlike the Genesis version, Batman has a more diverse arsenal, though it's unnecessary since the Batarang is just as effective.

The graphics try to emulate the TV show, but the miniature sprites lack detail. The enemies are garden-variety thugs, and the bosses are easy to beat.

The music is annoying and repetitive. The familiar Batman theme music isn't present.

With such a prominent superhero, it's a shame that this game is so dull. Get a comic and forget this cart.


  • Batman can hang onto most ledges and precipices.
  • To knock o1f the first boss, aim for his teeth and lump off the ledge when his timed shots come for you.

Question: I need help. What is the answer to the last riddle that the Minotaur asks when you go into the maze to free Commissioner Gordon and his daughter?

Answer: Ooo, I love riddles. This one is actually pretty simple to guess at, but since you have to give the answer as initials, rather than spelling it out or picking from multiple choice, it's a little tougher. For those who haven't played or gotten that far, the riddle goes like this: "I have billions of eyes, yet I live in darkness. I have millions of ears, yet I only have four lobes. Although I have no muscles, I rule two hemispheres' What am I?" Straight out, the answer is "H.B". Two guesses what that stands for.

With the return of Batman to the big screen came the return of that old familiar 'Bat Hype'. The difference here is that The Adventures of Batman & Robin is actually based on the stylistic cartoon series. I guess it was just coincidental timing.

The one aspect of this game that shines above all others is the sharp and colorful graphics. In this new age of 32-bit machines it's easy to forget that it is possible to squeeze a good look out of the Genesis, but Sega has done a fantastic job in this case. There are other solid aspects in this game which revolve around the originality of some of the enemies and bosses. Enemies range from balloons floating by with spiked balls hanging at the end of a string to tiny, unmanned helicopter-like death machines that buzz by without a care in the world. There is also a great two player feature that gets Batman and Robin out there together, the way they should be.

The downside here is in the game control and the flood of identical enemy after identical enemy. If the battles involved more than just stiff jump-kicks and the throwing of bat paraphernalia, then it might be more fun to fight so many enemies, but in the end, many of the levels just become an annoying interruption between bosses. At least it looks good. GP

Once again, the Caged Crusader and his sidekick Robin swing into action over Gotham City - and this time the game's even more boring and repetitious. This game will develop your thumb muscles through hours of tiresome button-mashing.

Batman and Robin were a team in my day. Everywhere the Caped Crusader went, the Boy Wonder was sure to follow. They ate drank and fought crime together. They were so inseparable, people started to wonder about them.

But these days things are different. Batman and Robin can't be found together at all. I guess all the years of male bonding forced Dick Grayson to file a restraining order against his good friend Bruce Wayne.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I found out Batman and Robin would at last be together again in Sega's The Adventures of Batman and Robin. Unfortunately, they're only together in the two player version. You get to fight the goons of the evil Mr.Freeze, who plans on putting a big chill on troubled Gotham City. Playing the game by yourself leaves you wondering why they didn't title it The Adventures of Batman and Robin, since you can't be both heroes.

This game isn't a show stopper, even though its graphics are great and the violence is excessive, it never gets to be any fun. The only difference between the characters is how they look. They go through the game using the same moves and getting the same results. It stops being fun after a while.

So don't go out and sell your Batman pajamas to get up the cash to buy this game. Leave them right where they are. I promise you - even the most intense Batman ton won't lose sleep over not owning this one.

An excellent translation of a cartoon series to the game screen! This game is just like being in control of the TV hero. The only drawback is that the characters move a bit slow, due to the extremely fluid animation.

Holy side-scrolling adventure game, Batman! Sega brings the Dark Knight and the Boy Wonder to the Genesis to duke it out with the likes of Mr. Freeze, The Joker, Mad Hatter, and Two-face. Unlike the SNES version, Robin is actually in the game, not just the title. In the two-player mode you and a friend can lead the dynamic duo through the terrors of Gotham City. We are eager to give this game a full play.

He's The Dark Knight, The Caped Crusader. He's Also Completely Nuts!

Finally, The Adventures of Batman and Robin (formerly known as Batman: The Animated Series) is hitting the video game screen and, from the looks of it, this may be one of the Caped Crusader's best games yet.

Each stage is based on an episode from the highly successful afternoon show and includes several of Batman's deadliest foes, from the wisecracking Joker to the voluptuous Poison Ivy; all of whom spell trouble for the denizens of Gotham City. The Cowled One can expect to put in a little bit of overtime.

It's a tough job, but you won't have to do it empty-handed. You've got the entire contents of Batman's Utility Belt at your disposal. Nail the bad guys with a Batarang. Swing through the city on your Batline, or, if the numbers aren't in your favor, use a smoke bomb to make a strategic retreat. It's all there!

This barely average driving game should be called The Adventures of the Batmobile because you never control the Caped Crusader outside of his legendary vehicle.

In the Batmobile, you dodge obstacles and attack enemy cars in a scenario reminiscent of the old Road Blasters game. After completing each mission, you're awarded with superb original animation by the series creators. However, these segments don't compensate for the lack of bat action.

Loud, high-energy CD music complements the game's fast pace, though you'll wonder if it's just a cover-up for the average effects. And while the car controls fairly well, the repetitive stages will have you looking for the Gotham garage.


  • As soon as you enter trees in Stage Two of the second level, look for this 1-up.
  • When chasing Lily and Violet, dodge the obstacles, speed up to get close, then fire as rapidly as possible.

Batman and Robin carry on their crime-fighting crusade in a nine-level action/adventure game that features the show's dark but stunning visual style. Gotham City's heroic vigilantes engage in side-view beat-em-up brawls, vertical free-fall fighting, and even a bat-bedeviling maze challenge. Looks like Robin's just along for the ride, but you'll drive the Batmobile in a beat-the-clock cruise. Catwoman, Two Face, the Penguin, and the Joker are the lead bat bashers.

The Adventures of Batman & Robin is a side-scrolling action game based on the animated series of the same name (after being renamed). Despite Robin’s more passive and supportive role, the game was very well received and praised by fans for staying faithful to the series.

The game is a standard beat ‘em up game where you fight through hordes of underlings until you finally reach the antagonist at the end of the level. Along the way, you solve simple puzzles in order to complete your mission, sometimes using crucial items which Alfred is kind enough to suggest at the beginning of the level. These items can be weapons like boomerangs or bombs, but also utility items like a flashlight and such.

In the Adventures of Batman & Robin, the Batcave allows you re-equip items and gadgets and also to restart the current mission with the maximum number of lives. The game also has a password system which takes note of your remaining lives and continues. For the hard-core fans, there is also a hard mode which does not allow you to use continues or passwords, thus the game has to be completed in one try.

The levels all feature different designs and visuals, and even start off with their own title card, as an episode of the series would. As you fight your way, you will inevitably fight some of the famous villains from the Batman universe, such as the Joker, Poison Ivy, Two-Face and the Riddler. The villains all have unique animations and even short voice samples, and all this lends itself to a much more appealing battle.

Graphically speaking, the game is not very colourful or vibrant; however it is very faithful to the art style of the comics and the animated series, giving the impression that you are actually playing within the cartoon. The music also complements the graphics perfectly with its dark tone.

The Adventures of Batman & Robin is one of the best games of the series not just because of it kept the same style as the comics and animated series, but also because of its diverse levels each with its unique challenges and attention to detail, down to small laughs to give characters much more depth than a MIDI beep could. The only major complaint made by fans was that the game was too short. That just means that they wanted more.

The Adventures of Batman & Robin features:

  • Unique levels and boss fights.
  • Music and graphics faithful to the series.
  • Hard mode for a greater challenge.

In The Adventures of Batman and Robin, developed by Clockwork Tortoise, Inc, you can challenge Batman’s most hated archenemies - such as Two-Face, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, the Penguin, and Joker. With its fast, furious street action in Gotham City to the intense gameplay of eight varied levels, players battle to rid the city of crime and violence using a wide range of Bat weapons. These weapons include smoke bombs, Batarangs, x-ray goggles, and various other tools that fit into the utility belt. This animated style game is full of dynamic graphics and a compelling musical score. Released in December of 1995, The Adventures of Batman and Robin, is rated for kids to adults with animated violence. The publisher is Sega of America, Inc and distributed by Electro source. Experience the adventures of Batman with a joystick or gamepad.

    This game is cool, the stages are long, but the levels are really long, there are only four levels, but there are many stages in just one level and there is no way you can beat this in the same day unless you have nothing else to do, but I mean this in the good way so don't get me wrong. There is one level though, while flying the handglider, this stage is incredibly long and get kind of boring, but play it anyway because the rest of the game is worth it. Best thing in the game are the boss fights and the pose that batman/robin does at the ending of each stage, it looks cool. Highly recommended game by me JGCD!

    This is the best of the batman games for the Saga by far!, A must not just for Batman fans but anyone wanting a fast paced beat um up!, But if you want a even better version with better graphics try the Super Nintendo version on!.

    This is another of those strange multi console games that varied from the other I.E Saga!, The Nintendo version is better in my view and has more visual treats on offer, Cleaner sharper edges make the difference and new look characters and enemy's, The game is still non stop action just the same as the Saga version but with little tweaks!, I was a Saga kid but on odd occasions the Nintendo version was made better due to the fact they usually where released after the Saga version!....
