This game was released as a conversion kit. Rumor has it that 1000 were made. It is based upon the movie of the same name.

Even though there is another game called Batman, the two are technically unrelated to each other since they were created by different companies.

Cabinet Information

The monitor bezel shows some photo stills from the movie. The control panel is somewhat shaped like the bat symbol.


The game was designed by Iguana Entertainment.
