The Joker has broken out of Arkham, and with him, he's taken five of Batman's most deadly foes! Together, Batman and Robin must overcome the five villains and find clues as to where the Joker is hiding so they can stop his sinister plan! Are you brave enough to don the cape and cowl and pursue the Joker in his perhaps his most devious plan yet? Explore the villanous hideouts of Mr. Freeze, Clayface, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, Killer Croc, Manbat, and the clown prince of crime himself, the Joker in a classic RPG adventure! You'll take down thugs and henchmen, solve puzzles and collect clues as you gain experience and fight your way through to the end of each level! The RPG's story is based primarily around one from the hit 90's animated TV show!
Along the way, you will unlock various costumes and gadgets as rewards for your efforts throughout the game. And upon completing the main campaign as Batman & Robin, you will unlock the special feature, Joker's Breakout, in which you play as the Joker and Harley Quinn in the events that took place before the dynamic duo hunt down the clown couple and their accomplices. Joker's Breakout is designed for hardcore players looking for a new challenge as it takes the formula used for Batman mode and puts a unique twist on it. If you are skilled enough at that mode of play, you can unlock Boss Rush Mode, where you take on every boss in the game, and then one additional mega boss!
