Batman is a video game released for the Sega Genesis, which was inspired by the 1989 Tim Burton-directed Batman film. The Genesis version was also produced by Sunsoft. The game is more faithful to the film’s plot than the NES version and features levels in which the player controls Batman’s vehicles. Unlike the NES version, this version stays closer to the plot of the film, and features the Batmobile and Batwing in the form of horizontal shooting levels. While the NES version allows three unique weapons and unlimited continues, the Genesis version only has the Batarang as a special weapon with limited continues. The grappling hook is an additional item. The game also deviates from the film plot because, in the film, Batman attempts to save Napier from falling into the chemicals, but fails. However, in the game, Batman actually knocks Napier into the vat. This game has several cutscenes, with the player advancing to the next destination after defeating a boss character.
