DescriptionThis remake of Batman adds new color graphics and sounds to the isometric action-adventure from 1986. As in the original, the player controls Batman (renamed to "Watman" to avoid litigation) in his quest to assemble the hovercraft and rescue Robin. The batcave is filled with bizarre creatures and surreal rooms, where dangerous roaming enemies have to be avoided and hazardous environments must be navigated to collect all the vehicle pieces and finish the main goal.
Watman can only use his special abilities after finding and equipping one of his famous gadgets. The boots allow him to jump, the bag lets him carry objects, the thruster gives horizontal control when falling and the belt slows the speed of descent. Other items give temporary powers, like energy pellets that increase Watman's speed, shields that make the hero invulnerable for a short time, spring boots for higher jumps, a Batman doll that gives an extra life and a neutralizer that removes all powers.
Some rooms have batsignals that provide a rudimentary way of saving progress, allowing the player to resume from that point after losing all lives. The PC remake has the ability to save the game at any place with the F2 key, and load it later from the main menu. Batman loses one life with each save, and the player can't use this function when the number of remaining lives is zero.

I've got to give lots of thanks to the next ones:
The GGG: Without him the Watman remake wouldn't look as nice as it does. His gfx are awesome as you'll see once you start it, and Watman probably wouldn't have reached this final version without him., Russel Hoy, The same as GGG applied to music :). He also made me work a bit more with the map editor and other editors which later were really useful, and I hope they'll be for other projects. :), System Halted & Vincent: Testing front, always disturbing the programmer ;). Thanks to shalted too for the 'alfa' version and for a funny night trying to discover the datafile format which was at the end of the document we didn't check :D), Lots of people who sent me any e-mail about the project... or about something else ;)
I'd like to give a 'thanks' to two more persons:
Joan Racó (Nobita), He was the one who introduced me into manga, and the author of the intro song. I knew him inside an old BBS a long time ago. If anybody knows anything about him, his mail should be nice, I would like to talk him again, but first I should find him! :) He used to live in Sabadell., Jordi Domenech, MegaHardClub president :) this sounds old and nice :) He did the intro fonts a long long time ago, for another game project. Just the same as above... if anybody knows his mail, I'd really like to talk with him again :)
