Batman Forever: The Arcade Game is a beat 'em up video game based on the movie Batman Forever. The subtitle is used to differentiate it from Batman Forever, another beat 'em up published by Acclaim at around the same time. One or two players, playing as Batman and Robin, fight Two-Face, the Riddler, and numerous henchmen.

Gameplay[edit]

Batman fights through the first level of the game.

Taking on the role of either Batman or Robin, players can punch, kick, and use special combination attacks to defeat waves of enemies. The special combinations applied to enemies can add up to a possible 150+ hits on a single villain. Special weapons, such as Batarangs, can be found throughout the levels. It is sectioned off into stages, and arranged with waves of enemies before ending with a boss.

Development[edit]

Batman Forever: The Arcade Game was Acclaim Entertainment's first arcade game. It was built on Sega's "Titan" technology, the hardware which formed the foundation for the Sega 32X and Sega Saturn.[4]
