This week Fred and Trees celebrate the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us by discussing old games based on DC comics (which pretty much means Batman and Superman titles).  Also remember next week is our game club with Guardian Heroes (Saturn/XBLA).

Title reference: “DC Bullet” is the official logo used by the company from the 80s until recently.

Opening Song: “Superman Theme” from the Famicom title of the same name.

Closing Song: “Boss Theme” from Batman: Return of the Joker on the NES.

Cover Art: “Killing Joke”

  1. For reference: Batman the Caped Crusader on the C64 was a flick screen action adventure style game where you had to traverse the screens, collection items to solve puzzles and shoot baddies that appear, to foil plots by the Joker and the Penguin. One really cool feature was the each new screen overlaid the previous one, giving it a sort of comic book feel.

    You also completely missed the Batman The Movie game released in 1989 for the microcomputers.

    Of note on the Amiga version is the Batmobile and Batwing sections, which, unlike the 8 bit versions, were viewed behind the car racing into the screen, which blew everyone away when it was released, with impressive turning animation when the Batmobile swung around corners.
