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:
