Adventures of Batman & Robin (SNES)

The Adventures of Batman & Robin was a video game based on the Adventures of Batman and Robin cartoon series, which was based on the popular DC comics character Batman. The cartoon itself was actually renamed to that after the first season, which was simply title Batman: The Animated Series.

The SNES version of the game differs greatly from the others and was developed by Konami. This game is a side-scrolling action title in which Batman battles through levels inspired by the series, each focusing on a single villain. The game features Robin in a very passive role, as the game was originally designed during the first season of the cartoon, before it was retitled.

Villains with their own stages include: the Joker, the Penguin, Catwoman, the Riddler, Two Face, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow. Many must be fought a second time in the final stage along with the additional bosses: Clayface, and Man Bat.

Each stage is designed very differently and gives a diverse feeling to the gameplay. Batman can jump and punch enemies, as well as use several equipable gadgets. Gadgets include bombs, x-ray glasses, and more. Batman can also choose to revisit the batcave, where he can change gadgets for the current level.

Stages include:
Level 1: Amused to Death, featuring an amusement part and rollercoaster theme, with the Joker as the boss.
Level 2: No Green Peace, featuring a forest, with Poison Ivy as the boss.
Level 3: Fowl Play, featuring the Penguin as the boss.
Level 4: Tale of the Cat, where Batman must chase and battle Catwoman.
Level 5: Trouble in Transit, featuring Gotham streets and several car chase scenes, and with Two Face as the boss.
Level 6: Perchance to Scream, featuring the Scarecrow as the boss.
Level 7: Riddle Me This, featuring the Riddler.
Level 8: The Gauntlet, featuring many of the bosses again.

Batman's supporting cast includes: Robin, Alfred, Summer Gleeson, Commissioner Gordon and Barbara Gordon.

The game uses a password system, which give the player a password for each level completed. There are no passwords on the hard difficulty, but completing that mode rewards the player with an additional ending.
