The Adventures of Batman & Robin (SNES)
The Adventures of Batman & Robin is a 2D side-scrolling adventure action platform video game developed and released by Konami for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994. Based on the TV show of the same title, it was released in 1994 by Konami, the same guys who created the critically acclaimed Batman Returns game for the SNES. Is this classic game worth playing again? This review will give a second look at it!
The Adventures of Batman & Robin has managed to separate itself from the other Batman games for the SNES. Departing from the classic beat ’em up style of similar games (though there are still some beat-em-up elements here), this game is more of a platforming style game. You will need to complete 8 levels to finish this game.
You need to defeat a boss at the end of each level, with the bosses being some of the comic book’s classic villains. There is an interesting twist in The Adventures of Batman & Robin: if you complete the game at hard level without using passwords, you will get the “true” ending of the game! Good luck with that!
On the graphics department, the cartoon-style portrayal of the characters is impressive. The backgrounds are tastefully done, perfectly fitting the entire Batman template. All the sound elements, the music, the sound effects, and the voices are all solidly done. Nothing special, but it won’t be irritating at the very least.
The gameplay is quite diverse. You can throw combos during hand-to-hand combat, you can use multiple weapons and gadgets, and you’ll need a good amount of mastery to harness these skills well. The degree of difficulty in completing this game is quite high. This is especially so in hard mode, which is one of the most extreme SNES experiences out there. However, it makes the gaming experience more fulfilling when you do beat the game.
The Adventures of Batman & Robin is not your usual beat ’em up video game. The execution of each level is solid, and its degree of difficulty will test your gamer skills. It is a game that should be worth playing even if it doesn’t involve licensed comic book characters. It’s not the best Batman game for the SNES, but it is a very good one, and is highly recommended for your classic video game collection.
The Adventures of Batman & Robin game has been ported to Super NES (this version), Genesis, Sega CD, and Game Gear. Just scroll up if you want to play it online!
