Batman: The Video Game is a video game inspired by the DC Comics character Batman It was released in 1986 for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, MSX and Amstrad CPW, it is and developed by Ocean.


The object of the game is to rescue Robin by collecting the seven parts of the Batcraft hovercraft that are scattered around the Batcave. The gameplay takes place in a 3D isometric universe, which programmers John Ritman and Bernie Drummond would further develop for 1987's Head Over Heels, and is notable for implementing an early example of a system that allows players to restart from an intermediate point in the game on the loss of a life rather than returning all the way to the start (in this case the point at which Batman collects a "Batstone").
