Batman: The Video Game is a 1990 video game tie-in to the 1989 movie Batman for the NES.
The game features Batman who must traverse the various sections of Gotham City in order to reach his final confrontation with the nefarious villain the Joker. It is loosely based on the 1989 Warner Bros. Batman motion picture.
The game has a feature that was unusual to side-scrolling platform games at the time, largely to the NES itself. Unlike the other Batman game that was released for the Mega Drive/Genesis, Batman has the ability to wall jump, which is reminiscent of Ryu Hayabusa's wall scaling in Ninja Gaiden. He is also able to use three projectile weapons: the Batarang, batdisk, and bat speargun, which are powered by pellet cartridges.
Besides the Joker, Batman faces other villains that are loosely based on those from the comic books: KGBeast, Deadshot, Maxie Zeus, Shakedown, Heatwave, The Enforcer, Nightslayer, Javelin, Jader, Killer Moth, The Electrocutioner, and Firebug.
