The only Game.Com game.


Tiger is well-known for its handheld pocket games (not actual video games). In 1997 they introduced their first real console, the handheld Game.Com, and Batman & Robin was one of its launch titles.

I haven't actually seen the game, and as far as I know there isn't any Game.Com emulation. What I know is that the console was a complete commercial failure. I am sure that many don't even know it existed. As for its potential, it had a small screen (as small as the old Game Boy) and monochrome display, while Nintendo was introducing then their Color Game Boy and SNK their Neo Geo Pocket.

The game itself (judging from the screenshots) seems like a Final Fight/ Double Dragon/ Streets of Rage beat'em up game, with the player being able to choose between Batman & Robin. Before the battle, the player can choose between several weapons for his/her hero of choice. There are five levels total loosely following the ''plot'' of the atrocious film. Each of these levels is broken in several sections. Each section can be completed only when a certain amount of enemies is defeated. As I said I haven't seen the game, but it's black and white, the photos don't look very good and the concept seems repetitive. I doubt it has any merit apart from the popular license. Here are some cheats for the game if you happen to obtain it.
