New Free Browser Game: Beware the Batman – Gotham Streets


It’s Wednesday again, and that means Toonbarn’s free browser based game of the week! This time around, we’re featuring something that’s very near and dear to our hearts: Batman. To be more specific, something based on the most recent TV series, Beware the Batman. The game is titled Gotham Streets, and it puts you in the shoes of the caped crusader, and then puts you in the driver’s seat of his favorite mode of transportation – the batmobile.

Gotham Streets has surprisingly good presentation for a browser-based game, featuring an FMV cutscene that shows the batmobile taking to the streets. From thereon, the game turns into a top-down SHMUP, with the batmobile taking on various vehicles (and even spaceships?) using front and back-facing weapons. There are power-ups galore (including the always-helpful spread shot) and an option to drop oil in order to take out enemies from behind. You can play the game below:

  1. Hey.

    Nice Batman game. You can also press P to pause the game, which I don’t think was documented in the help (unless I missed it). Comes in very handy, this being a keyboard based game, and rather fast paced.

    Unless I missed every sing health item, the game could benefit from dropping them along the way too.

    The reverse oil slicks are great, just one application, and almost all the cars behind you are done. The front rockets are very powerful, but it can be hard to hit something with those.

    I really like being able to mute the audio, as I found the music loop too short, and got monotonous quickly.

    “…surprisingly good presentation for a browser-based game…”
    Just a polished game. I like the extra effort put in on that polish. ^_^

    Reminds me of Spy Hunter in some ways. (:

    – Ziro out.
