Batman Returns - Bugfix & Hard Mode

Hack of Batman Returns


This hack provides a couple of bugfixes and adds some polish. It also adds an optional Hard difficulty.

The bugfixes and polish include:

  • Added Batman’s missing face sprite in 3 different animations
  • Some work on the HUD
  • Some pixel work on Batman and a couple of bosses
  • Fixing the wrong palette being used for the motorcycle enemy in stage 3-2

The Hard mode doubles all damage dealt to the player. It was part of the game’s copy control mechanisms and was turned into an actual feature. In order to turn it on, press “SELECT” on the “START - PASSWORD” screen. The bat cursor will turn red and you will hear a sound to confirm that it worked (see last screenshot).

This hack is fully compatible with the “Improved Controls” hack! You can patch both on the same ROM. The reason there are seperate hacks is because some players may want the bugfix & hard mode without the modified controls.

More info in the “readme” file.
