> BATMAN THE MOVIE by Ocean


Completed by Vinny Mainolfi & Matthew Rogers
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

We originally had this ending just showing the final message screen, but then we were fortunate to have a C64 fan contact us to say that there was a little more to the ending than we actually revealed. Matthew Rogers was on the case and finally produced the goods ...


Batman shoots down the Joker ...


... who falls to his death!


Or is he just pretending to be dead?!


The End. For now.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I cheated all the way to the ending :-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Well to defeat the Joker, you have to fire the swinging hook at him, which knocks him off the ladder before he can escape. The Joker plunges to his death but for some reason he isn't dead! In fact, he can been seen saying, "HA HA!". The game then cuts away to the final message screen (see last screenshot above).

COMMENTS: Both Matthew and I were expecting a little more to this ending after being told that we were missing something. It does deserve a few more marks and I must also point out the nice music that accompanies this ending (well done Mathew Cannon).

FINAL SAY:

Matthew: 'still not much cop!'

Vinny: 'Judge for yourself ...'

G.E. RATING: 4 / 10

ADDITIONAL INFO FROM JARI KARJALAINEN on 06/07/06: "In case you haven't seen the 1988 movie, which the game was based on (*surprise*), the reason why Joker seems to laugh at the end of the game after falling to his death, it's because in the movie, the cops find a little joker toy from Joker's pocket, which is laughing this stupid repeating joker laugh, which, I suppose, is what the little ha-ha effects written over the dead Joker must be about. So, the ending makes a bit more sense when you look at it with the movie in mind. I thought it was a nice little detail in the ending, and I thought it would've deserved at least a 5 or a 6."
