Batman: The Video Game

By G.B. World, April 13, 1990

Game Boy’s first tie-in to a Western comic (and movie) property came to us in care of the hottest comic and movie property of the time: Tim Burton’s ultra-stylish Batman. Surprisingly, this is not simply a port of the NES game (also by SunSoft) but rather a completely original title.

    Jeremy! I love what you’re doing here! I’ve heard about Retronauts for years, but never listened. Now, for the past two weeks, it’s just about all I’ve listened to. I love the podcast and hearing all of yours and Bob’s deep dives into retro games. Specifically, I liked the most recent Dracula X episode. So much in fact, I watched a 3 hr. longplay of it on YouTube. Anyways, I keep hearing you mention this site, and decided I’d finally take a look – and I love it! It’s amazing what you’re doing here. PLEASE don’t stop. The world needs archivers like you doing things like this.

    Sincerely,
    Josh Daniel (Atl, Ga.)

    P.S. I’m a huge Batman fan, and was curious about this cart. These images are fantastic! Thank you for all of your hard work!!
