ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Apr, 1989)
Keep the Speccy gameplay and objectives and improve the graphics and you're left with a great arcade adventure with plenty of puzzling and object manipulation to keep you busy. The two different games come on two separate disks included in the package so once you've completed one it's a simple case of booting up the other disk and starting in at that.
Atari ST User (Apr, 1989)
Holy broken bones, this game is amazing. It features all the best aspects of an arcade adventure while capturing the magic of a comic strip. Batman is alive and well and fighting it out on your ST screen - a must for my son's birthday and for daddy to play in secret.
The One (Dec, 1988)
The gameplay is frustratingly difficult, in fact it's precisely as difficult as this sort of game should be, causing hours of searching and punching and puzzling. The frame overlaying technique is highly effective, as the gradual build up of previously visited screens does wonders for creating a real, environment. The lack of a Robin character and the obscurity of some of the puzzle solutions are the only drawbacks that I can find in this otherwise superb licence.
The Games Machine (UK) (Mar, 1989)
A game better suited to 8-bits but still worthy of some hours head-scratching and joystick-thrashing on the ST.
Computer Gaming World (CGW) (May, 1989)
All in all, though, true batophiles will probably like this game even though it fails, in some aspects, to reproduce the crime-fighting/ crook-stomping Batman that we expect. There is certainly enough "Pow!" and "Socko!" for most.
