Wherever there's crime, there's Batman. And it's a good thing too, because with all the supervillains with their devilish schemes, Gotham is going to need all the help it can get! Luckily, Batman's not on his own - he'll get help from his friends like Green Arrow, Robin, Hawkman, Blue Beetle, Captain Marvel, Plastic Man, Booster Gold and more! Whether it's the Gotham Musuem or outer space, you can count on Batman to fight for justice and put the crooks behind bars!
Batman: The Brave and The Bold - The Videogame is a sidescrolling platformer beat-'em-up based on the cartoon series of the same name. Players control Batman and a tag-along superhero partner (which differs from episode to episode) and fight various villains as they save Gotham City and beyond. Enemies drop coins which can be used to upgrade gadgets, as well as purchase new ones. If a player loses all their health, they loose 100 coins and are respawned back into the game to continue the crimefighting. Each player has a special Jump-in Hero they can select, who can help them with a powerful attack every so often (similar to using magic in Golden Axe).
The game is not limited to two players, however. If you have a Nintendo DS and the DS version of The Brave and The Bold, you can link the DS up to the Wii, allowing a third player to play as the Batman-obsessed, magical tagalong, Bat-Mite. Bat-Mite controls differently from other characters. He can fly around the screen anywhere, and can assist the heroes by conjuring health or energy pickups, or try to help fight by dropping anvils and bombs out of nowhere. However, just like in the show, Bat-Mite can be a nuisance to the heroes too - his attacks will damage other players if they don't avoid them!
