BAT AGAINST BIRD!
Cold . .. hard ... vicious!
Who else but a cold-hearted,
vicious villain would unleash
a shrieking swarm of bats on
the Ice Princess? Who but
a power-mad monster would
push her plunging down 30
stories to a terrible end? And
use her tragedy as a fiendish
plot to frame The Caped
Crusader! Who else but that flipper-fingered
perpetrator of murderous deeds, The Penguin!
In a dark, brooding city of tricks and treachery,
Batman takes on The Penguin and his brawling band
of cohorts, The Red Triangle Circus Gang. On the
slick ledges of skyscrapers, in the narrow galleries of
an eerie cathedral, through the icy sewers under the
city’s heart, the masked master of justice clashes
with fanged gargoyles, fire-eaters, skulled cyclists
and tazer-toting clowns!
Batman has all his wonderful toys! A grappling hook
for scaling dizzying heights. Batman’s cape for
swooping through air! Lethal Batarangs, smoke
bombs, deadly swarms of
bats, a grappling gun! In the
Batmobile and Batskiboat,
the man behind the mask races
through enemy-infested streets
and poisoned sewers to battle
Gotham City’s crime wave!
But the deadliest enemies
prowl the highest rooftops and
tightest corners. Suddenly,
Catwoman leaps into the fight. The fickle feline
mistress of whips tangles with Batman, slipping in
and out of battle mysteriously, like an inky black cat,
never to be trusted!
The pace is fierce. The action is furious. And there’s
only one way out: Take Back Gotham City!

“/ believe the word you’re looking for is
AAAAUGGGHHH/” — The Penguin
How do you clean up a city that
thrives on crime? That relishes
the dark, revels in the sinister
and savors the pain and
suffering of honest citizens?
You do it at night. You stalk the
streets and scour the rooftops.
During your battle against
crime, you prowl abandoned
stores and macabre cathedrals.
You infiltrate the enemy’s lair, right down to the racing
runaway trains and the icy, ominous sewers. And you
do it alone. You travel in the Batmobile or Batskiboat
and fight with all the firepower you have and you don’t
spare the ammo!
Play “Full Game” for the most complete nerve-
wrenching action you’ve ever lived through! You’ll
combine the Driving and Platform games into one
massive saga of pure Batman mayhem.
In the Batmobile, you’ll scream
through hairpin turns at face¬
razoring speeds, blasting away
at homicidal foes. When —
and if — you reach your
destination, you’ll travel by
foot, cape and grappling rope
to hunt down the heinous Red
Triangle Circus Gang and their
preposterously grisly ring¬
master, The Penguin! After each Platform Act, you’ll
take up another Driving Act, sometimes in the
Batmobile, sometimes in the Batskiboat.
Or choose your fight, “Driving Only" or “Platform
Only,” to face The Penguin’s thugs on their turf — but
on your terms. Batman Returns has 3 intense play
modes. You gotta play it to believe it!

A HOT TIME IN THE COLD TOWN
(Full Game or Platform Only)
“Actually, this is all just a bad dream. ”
— The Penguin
This city war takes on a weird
twist — you start out at the top!
In fact, you’re clinging to some
of the tallest skyscrapers and
scaffoldings in Gotham City.
And The Penguin and his
powerhouse of costumed
criminals are rallied against
you. Choose your weapons
carefully, and time your moves
perfectly. Make the bad guys take the fall!

Score: Your total points so far in the game.
Your Health: Your remaining stamina. The bar
flashes when it gets low. If it disappears, you lose
one life. You'll be restored to battle at that spot as
long as you have lives left. You can regain some or
all health with a Heart power-up (see page 20).
Boss’s Health: A bar appears here when you
confront one of your most mortal adversaries, such
as Catwoman. These enemies are definitely bad
for your health. As they weaken, though, this bar
disappears. Reduce this bar to nothing (use your
Utility Belt weapons) and you win!
Lives: Your remaining lives. If you lose all your
lives, the act ends. You can restart the act from
the beginning as long as you have Continues left
(see page 21).
Flight Power: Your ability to glide with your cape
(by pressing Weapon Attack during a fall).
Weapon in Use: The weapon currently selected
from your Utility Belt.
Weapons Left: How many shots of your current
weapon you have left. (The number flashes when
you’re low.) You can regain weapons by collecting
power-ups (see pages 16-17). 75
USING BATMAN’S UTILITY BELT
‘‘You don't really think you’ll win , do you? “
— The Penguin
What sets Batman apart is that he’s always had
the best toys. He carries an arsenal of deadly toys
(make that weapons) under his belt.
Press Start to bring up your Utility Belt. Here's what
you have when the game begins:
10 Regular 1 Swarm 1 Super-
Batarangs of Bats Seeking
3 Smoke 1 Grappling Batarang
Press the D-Pad RIGHT or LEFT to highlight the
weapons. When you’ve chosen the weapon you
want, press Start again to resume the action.
You start the action with at least one of each weapon.
You can collect more weapons by collecting power-
ups as you move through Gotham City and its
The game screen shows how many shots remain
of the weapon you’re currently using (see page 15).
When you use up a weapon, you’ll automatically start
using the weapon that’s farthest to the left on the
Utility Belt. (This is usually the regular Batarangs,
unless they’re all used up.) Weapons that are used
up cannot be selected from the Utility Belt.
The Utility Belt car. hold up to 99 of each weapon,
so pick up all the power-ups you can find. You can

— if you toss them before your attacker gets too
close. Rush up and pound enemies to dust while the
smoke is still burning their eyes.

You can spread Batman’s cape and glide through
midair. This is especially useful for collecting power-
ups in hard-to-reach places, and dodging damage
in dangerous areas, like over spiked floors.
To glide, press and hold the Weapon Attack button
during a fall. (If you like, you can tap the button
repeatedly to flap the cape like bat wings, although
this won’t affect your glide.)
USING BATMAN’S SPECIAL TOOLS
‘Who’s the man behind the bat?”
Use the grappling hook to reach places too high to
jump to, or where no foothold is available. Press the
D-Pad UP and press Jump to fling the hook towards
a ledge or opening. If there’s something to snag onto,
the hook will “catch." Then tap the Jump button to
climb up the rope. Hold down the button and press
the D-Pad UP or DOWN to lengthen or shorten

power. Each time you glide, you use a portion of it.

RIGHT and LEFT to swing back and forth, or to
swoop on the rope from one place to another.
The soles of your boots are invincible to fire, bullets,
bombs, electricity and other deadly dangers. Learn
the trick of kicking to shield yourself from damage.
STARTING A LIFE
“I have but one pet cause today: Ban the Bat!”
You may not have 9 lives like Catwoman, but you can
start your battles with up to 7 lives (chosen on the
Options panel). You can extend your Health bar
and increase your number of remaining lives during
combat by picking up Regular Hearts, Pulsing Hearts
and Batman Masks.
Your Health Lives
Regular Hearts restore 4 units of health.
Pulsing Hearts top off your Health bar at full
Batman Masks give you an extra life.
You start out with 3, 5 or 7 lives, depending on your
setting on the Options panel. Each time your health
runs out, you lose a life. You will return to battle as
long as you have lives left.
In the Driving game, you start the stage over. In the
Platform game, you reappear on or near the spot
where your health ran out. When you lose all your
lives, you have the option to continue or quit the
game, or the game may end.
CONTINUING A GAME
If you choose to go on, press Start on the Continue
screen before the timer reaches zero. You will
resume the game at the beginning of the act (not the
stage or level) you last played. Your health and
number of lives will be restored to their full amounts,
and you’ll be outfitted with a new set of weapons
in your Utility Belt.
ENDING THE GAME
Dousing The Penguin in his own sewer slime is one
sure way of ending the game. Another is losing
all your lives and all your Continues. When that
happens, you’ll return to the Title screen, where
you can go on to set different options (if you want)
and begin a new, and hopefully more successful,
onslaught against The Penguin and his menacing
Each time you start a new level, your health is
restored to full capacity, although your weapons
count remains the same.
SCENES OF THE CRIME
Act 1: Streets of Gotham (Driving Game)
Peel out in the road-gripping
Batmobile, chasing down a
squad of gasoline-bombing
bikers and getaway cars
lobbing explosives. Bash
into the special trash cans
with the flashing signals
to increase your missile
supply. Save your missiles
for the fire truck that tries to
hose you down with a
stream of flames!
Act 1: Gotham City (Platform Game)
Scale the skyscrapers as
you ascend to the heights.
Dodge the gargoyles'
fireballs and the spinning
kicks of thug acrobats. Slap
and kick them into oblivion!
You can’t destroy the
exploding penguins, so
your best bet is to move
fast and duck the shrapnel.
Catwoman cracks her whip
on the rooftops. She's almost too fast for your fists,
so pepper her with Utility Belt weapons. Take a
secret passage through the abandoned warehouse
on 22nd Street — but don't get sucked in! Prowl and
pummel your way through the ruined cathedral, climb
with your grappling rope, and swing for your life in the
final duke-out with The Penguin!
Act 2: Winter Wonderland (Driving Game)
Ice slicks and snow-
shrouded trees are
as deadly as they are
beautiful. A Ferris wheel
turns merrily in the distance
as you battle more mad
leering bikers and speeding
thugs. Use rapid fire to
weaken your opponents.
Ram and sideswipe to
shove them off the road
in bursts of flame!
Act 2: Schrecks Wonderland
It's an up and down battle!
Use your weapons to take
out the strong man on the
roof — don’t try to fight him
hand-to-hand. Then fight
your way through what's
left of Schreck’s infamous
Department Store. The Red
Triangle Circus Gang is
here in force, lurking behind
every wall, escalator and
chandelier. Search for hidden power-ups and watch
out for that broken elevator.
Act 3: City Limits (Driving Game)
Zig-zag along the ominous
avenues of the outlying city
sectors, under the glare of
Batman's searchlight. You'll
need a load of missiles to
batter the battalions of
battling brutes that terrorize
the streets. Swerve to
dodge the bolts of cold
rolled steel deliberately
dropped by the speeding
Act 3: The Red Triangle Circus
If you can’t join the circus,
beat it! Start at the animal
cages and pummel your
way through to the Ferris
wheels. Stay off the ground
— there’s no way out if you
drop into the bottomless pit.
Don’t look for luck in the
House of Mirrors, where
cruel clowns leap from
behind the glass. Catch the
last train out of town. Don't rush across the cars or
you’ll end up under the wheels!
Act 4: Sewers of Gotham (Driving Game)
Act 4: Into the Sewers (Platform Game)
Take control of the
Batskiboat and dive into
the cold, putrid sewers of
the city’s underbelly. Blast
open the sewer gates and
hurtle into the deadly
depths. Twist and turn
through the sludge and
slime, dodging sewer posts
and leaping drainage pipes.
Press the D-Pad LEFT or
RIGHT for 360s as you fly off the ramps. Look ahead
to see obstacles before you crash. And try not to get

labyrinth of pipes
while battling the
“sewer rats” that
lurk in the murk.
Be ready for
attacks from all
sides. Once you
get to the second
complex, swing across the sludge-laden pipes to fight
your way out of this polluted “waste” land. Clear the
maze and face The Penguin’s Toxic Slime Cannon!
Act 5: The Penguin s Lair
(Driving Game Only)
Enter The Penguin’s water
trap — a speedway of
death! The only way past
the kamikazi boaters is to
annihilate them with ammo
before they even get close.
Play “bumper boats” with
the rocking ice cakes. Your
weapons won’t do you
much good against the
heavy floes and the clown
buoys marking the channel. You’ll just have to keep
your wits and steer clear while maintaining the fastest
speed you can!
Act 5: The Penguin’s Lair (Platform Game)
Save some flight power for
this place, because you’ll
really need to glide. This
is The Penguin’s own
sanctum, so be ready for his
most diabolical devices and
treacherous traps. Defeat
The Penguin now and you'll
take back Gotham City!
The Driving game has 5 acts of 6 stages each. You
clear a stage by defeating all enemies or passing all
obstacles within the time limit. You must clear one
stage in order to progress to the next.
When you clear a stage, you receive a point award
based on your speed and time.
In a Full Game, you must clear each Driving Act in
order to reach the following Platform Act.
The Platform game also has 5 acts. Each one is
made up of 3 or 4 levels, with several hidden bonus
levels scattered throughout the game.
At the end of each level you must defeat a powerful,
cunning boss whose tricks may surprise you. At the
finale of almost every act, you’ll tangle gloves to
flippers with The Penguin himself, whose devious
devices get more diabolical as the battles continue.
Your score is added up at the end of each level.

into poles and buildings for a quick kill.
♦ Conserve missiles for the big bosses. If you run
