As he investigates the "DDID" Nerve Gas Scandal, BATMAN travels through the dark, deserted main street. In the second area he encounters a shopping mall background with skyscrapers at the bottom. There is no sign of life, only the street skeletons of buildings and the street structure of a freeway. Finally, BATMAN reaches City Hall, located in the center of GOTHAM CITY, where he must defeat the boss, Killer Moth, to enter Stage 2. --- [PAGE 9] AXIS CHEMICAL FACTORY STAGE 2 THE JOKER'S hideout, the Axis Chemical Factory, is BATMAN'S next challenge. Here, he must cross a Liquid Waste Floor, the plant for processing chemical waster; the Spark Floor, equipped with operational panels of power for the entire factory; the Conveyer-Belt Floor, where chemical materials are refined; and finally the Nerve Center the Boss of Stage 2. In this area, BATMAN must out-smart security traps and destroy the entire MACHINE INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM. --- [PAGE 10] STAGE 3 UNDERGROUND CONDUIT Even though BATMAN successfully destroyed the Chemical Factory, he is caught in a trap and dropped into a underground conduit. Underground Conduits I and II are a network of sewers connecting all of GOTHAM CITY. Here, BATMAN must find the secret exit, the underground Cavern. The water flowing through the conduits generates power for the Underground Station in the Cavern. When BATMAN finds the exit, he must defeat The Electrocutioner who is waiting, to advance to Stage 4. --- [PAGE 11] LABORATORY RUINS STAGE 4 THE JOKER'S other hideout, the Laboratory Ruins, is a contaminated, deserted laboratory. As BATMAN enters the Research Laboratory he sees an array of futuristic life samples made by genetic engineering. --- [PAGE 12] STAGE 4 LABORATORY RUINS The next area BATMAN searches is the storage room, an almost empty warehouse with research engineering tools and equipment, energy conduits and power driving motors. Finally, BATMAN reaches the Thermal Processing Plant where a burning hot flame is used to process waste and refuse. The CAPED CRUSADER can now destroy the Dual-Container Alarm Boss and reach his final destination. --- [PAGE 13] CATHEDRAL STAGE 5 The secret Transmitter leads BATMAN to his greatest challenge - The Cathedral. After climbing the dark narrow staircase to the Belltower, BATMAN is attacked by THE JOKER'S trusted bodyguard, Firebug, the boss of Stage 5.
