Batman – Commodore 64
Batman also known as “Batman: The Movie” on the Commodore 64 is a game that was based on the 1989 Batman movie. There have been some extremely disappointing games released on the back of blockbuster movies. The likes of “E.T.” on the Atari 2600 and “Back to the future” on the NES to name just a couple. So did Batman on the Commodore 64 do what I thought was a good movie, justice?

Is Batman on the C64 Naff?
As a crossover from film to video games go, Batman is by far one of the better ones. Batman on the C64 is very good. The graphics a really good, everything is clear and very well drawn. The animations are really good and smooth. The game has some but very little glitching. The music to the game is excellent and the controls work without any issues. The gameplay is super fun and it’s nice to have different elements of play like the driving levels included.
Not many negatives to Batman on the C64, there are a few glitches at times but nothing major. It would have been nice to be able to use your Batrope when falling from height to try and save yourself from death. But hey-ho Batman on the C64 was and still is an amazing game all the same. And certainly did the movie justice.
