Batman Returns (Sega CD)

Postby VideoGameCritic » December 8th, 2019, 7:48 pm

Taking another look at this since Batman Returns (the game and movie) have a holiday theme. The first thing I noticed was how tough the boss in the opening driving stages is. It's a fire truck with clowns hanging off ladders and a flame throwing in the back. I think I came up with a strategy to beat it.

First, stay out of the flamethrower's path, hanging back until a ladder is open. Ramming the ladder will usually knock off a clown, and keep firing for good measure. The missiles are pretty much worthless against this guy. The driving stages are timed for some reason, so the margin for error is tiny.

Anybody else beat this boss?

You dont really think you'll win, do you??

You have to get a rhythm going, avoiding fire and accelerating at the right time on each side to knock off the clowns. And keep shooting him.

All of the bosses are hard on this game. I always used the level skip code to try out later stages. The one I hate the most is the one that shoots little cars and cannons at you.
