Overview

Batman Returns is an action game based on the 1992 film of the same name. Multiple unique versions of the game exist, developed sometime between 1992 and 1993:

  • The Super Nintendo Entertainment System version, developed and published by Konami in April 1993 features a sidescrolling beat-em-up style in similar vein to the SNES version of Final Fight. It also features some 2D platformer levels and a Batmobile racing level using Mode 7 technology.
  • The Genesis version, developed by Malibu and published by Sega in 1992, played like a traditional 2D action platformer. An enhanced version for the Sega CD, featuring enhanced music and added 3D Batmobile and Bat Skiboat levels, was released in 1993.
  • The Nintendo Entertainment System version, also developed and published by Konami in January 1993, features a sidescrolling beat 'em up style similar to the NES version of Double Dragon and sidescrolling Batmobile and Bat Skiboat levels.
  • The Game Gear and Sega Master System versions, developed by Aspect and published by Sega, is a traditional 2D action platformer.
  • The Atari Lynx version, developed and published by Atari, is a traditional 2D action platformer.
  • The Amiga version, developed by Denton Designs and published by Konami, is a traditional 2D action platformer.
