Help Batman to collect all of his missing equipment so that he can go out and protect the streets of Gotham.

BAT EQUIPMENT

These 4 items must be collected before Batman can begin his task. They are indicated at the bottom right of the playing screen and will automatically be highlighted when collected.

BATBOOTS - These will allow Batman to jump.
BATBAG - This enables Batman to pick up and carry items around a location - Press Carry again to drop them. (Note: items may not be moved from the location they start in).
BAT-THRUSTER - This lets Batman have horizontal control when falling, but has no effect on the speed of his descent.
BATBELT - This is a low gravity device which halves the speed ofdescent.

EXTRA POWERS

Batman is able to collect extra powers on his journey. These powers are not everlasting but will help Batman do battle with the henchmen. There are four extra powers and a fifth neutralizing power which Batman must try and avoid:

EXTRA LIFE - This increases the number of lives.
ENERGY - Collecting one of these enables Batman to travel at greatly increased speed for a short time.
SHIELDS - These make Batman invulnerable for a short time.
JUMP - These enable Batman to jump twice the normal height.
NEUTRALIZER - These should be avoided. Collecting one of these will cancel all Batman's extra powers.

BAT-SIGNALS

Distributed at several locations are Bat-Signals. Touch one and it will vanish - as it does, it will store the state of play (number of lives left, Batcraft parts collected etc). This allows one to restart the game at this point (see MAIN MENU - PLAY THE GAME) should you lose all your lives - this feature is nested so each time a Bat-Signal is located the state of play is stored for future use.

"The first must have game I ever had! I was desperate to play this as a kid and spent many a happy hour trying to beat the devious layouts and puzzles with little success. It`s not as polished or clever as Head over Heels but it`s still an essential title in anyone`s books. Often forgotten classic"
