    The Dark Knight: Batmobile Game.

    What is this game?
    It's a game based on The Batman movie The Dark Knight. Although it isn't fighting, and all of that stuff... Its where you control the batmobile, evade obstacles, and try to get through the course as fast as you can.

    You are able to unlock a bonus level if you get all your stars full.

    Why is it good?
    It has good graphics, entertaining if you are bored.
    Though some people might find it able to go through fast.

    Price: $0.99

    Time needed to get through it?
    Depending on how well you do, anywhere from 1 minute to 4 minutes.
    If done fast and get through it all you get bonus levels.
    (Short game, but they are still updating it.

    Game Play:
    Once started you shake the iPhone, or iPod Touch to get your engine revved up. Then touch the back of the Batmobile to get the engines started. Control the Batmobile and evade all obstacles. If you hit an obstacle it will lower your "peak" meter which will eventually lower the amount of stars you gain at the end of the game. If all stars are gained, you get a bonus level. During the game you can rapidly tap your engine when it says to do so to get a higher peak, and go faster.

    When you come to a jump and are airborne you must align the batmobile to the grid. If you mess up you will be stopped and game will end and then it says: Did Not Finish.

    Picture of batmobile getting stopped.

    If you land it good, or perfect you will keep going to the next area. Try to evade all cars and do not hit them.

    Your time will be added up at the end of the game and you will either continue to the bonus level (If able to.), You can also replay the match, or challenge a friend.

    My Rating:
    8/10

    Would be more if it were longer, and had more to do.

    This looks pretty cool, but after I went to the mall and saw a fat kid dressed in joker makeup and in a purple denim jumpsuit. I refuse to be associated with all things batman. Freaking Naruto convention in the back of an FYE............ lol

    this seems like a horrible game. looks like your going to play it once MAYBE twice and then thats it so why waste your money? also the ratings on the app store for this are horrible, people are only buying it because its associated with the dark knight.

    Actually the rating is due to when it first came out.
    With the new update it is better.

    When it first came out it was just where you clicked, and it auto drove for you, you went through it, and it was boring. But now it got better, and they are still developing it with updates possibly. So it'd get better.

    First, I think it's fair to review a game when it first comes out. It sucked originally so hard. Only reason it received downloads was because it was associated with Batman. If this was just called something else, oh I don't know, Car Jump, people would be screaming bloody hell.

    It was boring then, it's maybe a touch (no pun intended) less boring now. It's still so shallow, it's pathetic.

    To say they are still developing and possible updates, is naive, and wishful thinking. "It'll get better" is not a reason to recommend a game or think that it's good. You don't even know if they plan any updates, you're just hoping to justify this game

    Sorry to bust your bubble, I like your reviews but respectfully strongly disagree with your rating of this one. Of course, it's only my opinion, just like it's your opinion that this game gets an 8/10. If this game gets an 8/10, then really every game is just amazing....

    I see where you are getting at.
    Also its not like they were some random developer such as one from... Acme iPod Games making a Batman game. The game was created by Warner Bros. which produced the batman movie.

    Though your opinion is yours, and mine is mine.

    Absolutely. This was just my opinion of your opinion.

    As I said, was simply respectfully disagreeing with you. Nothing personal.
    And hey, if you like the game, that's cool. I won't hold it against you!
