Batman: Return of the Joker

Typed out by Sunsoft(r) for the Nintendo Entertaiment System(r) Batman(tm) - Return of the Joker(tm) Instruction manual --- Game overview Batman(tm) Return of The Joker(tm) is a one-player game with multi-directional scrolling capability. It consists of seven stages - each containing sublevels. The main objective of the game is to eliminate the henchmen or obstacles that block the pathway forward which leads to The Joker's hideaway. During your course you must pick up weapons and energy capsules which will help boost your offensive and defensive power. At the end of each stage (with the exception of stages two and five) the player must confront one of the many bosses. Each boss must be defeated before the player can move on to the next stage of game play. --- Game Story Precious metals are mysteriously missing from Gotham City(tm) mines. One of these metals has a highly toxic composition which is used to build explosives for missiles. Gotham City police have exhausted their resources and frantically call to Batman for help. He knows this scheme can only be the insane workings of one criminal mastermind... The Joker(tm) has returned! Batman must follow the trail leading to the location of The Joker's secret hideaway before it's too late. It won't be easy though. The Caped Crusader(tm) must use his new arsenal of weapons to foil The Joker's evil henchmen and rely on his acrobatic strength and wit to overcome the obstacles that block his way. Gotham City is relying on you to stop the Return of The Joker! --- Play Control Operation A-Button: Press to jump D-Button Down + A-Button: Press to slide B-Button: Press to use wrist projector D-Button: Down: Duck Up: Aim weapon upwards Left: Move Batman left Right: Move Batman right Start Button: Press to start game play Press to pause game play Password will appear on the pause screen. --- Attack Methods 1) Slide Attack Pressing both the D-Button downwards and the A-Button simultaneously will cause Batman to slide in the direction he is facing.

Backpack Energy Capsule Collect eight of these for invincible energy. By collecting eight of the energy capsules Batman will become invincible to any enemy.

Backpack Super Power Up Once you have collected the eight energy capsules, hold down the B-Button for a period of time. Batman will turn white and laser lights will explode and destroy all the enemies on the screen. This "Super Power Up" only lasts a second and will use up all of the eight energy capsules. Backpack Energy Capsules Each power capsule collected equals one increment on your screen. When eight capsules are collected Batman will turn invincible for a few moments. When he returns to normal the guage will be empty and you must collect more power capsules to fill it up again. --- Boss Stages After successfully completing a level, Batman will be challenged by one of The Joker's many bosses or evil inventions. During the boss stage you can determine how much power Batman or the boss has remaining by reading the life meter of each character indicated at the bottom of the screen. The life gauge is measured by numbers. The bosses become increasingly difficult as you progress through the levels. The more difficult a boss is to destroy the higher the number in his life gauge. When the life gauge reaches zero, the character is defeated. --- Password Screen 1) View the password Each level has a corresponding password. Before you stop playing, check the password by pressing the Start Button. You must check the password during game play because it will not be shown once the game is over.
