What is it about superhero games and games inspired by movies that tend to make them less than great? Is it that the developers take less time over them, or that they just don't translate very well? Whatever the truth, Batman Forever is a fun game featuring, as you might have guessed, that most iconic of DC superheroes - Batman.
Using some rather nice motion capture effects, Batman Forever sets you on a side scrolling mission not unlike Double Dragon where you'll face tons of henchmen plus some of the Dark Knight's finest enemies. Ok it's shallow fun, but it looks and plays a lot better than most side scrolling fighters and Gotham City looks suitably gothic and moody.
If you're a fan of the bat then you'll be pleased to learn that you can make use of a few of his special weapons, the bat-o-rang which has been with Batman from his earliest days is included and proves to be invaluable along the way. All in all I'd say this is an essential game for fans of Batman, and an entertaining game for everyone else.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
