Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is some spooky music and dark scenes, but nothing that will frighten most children.
What's it about?
Gotham City is under attack. The nefarious Penguin and his cohort Two-Face are stirring up trouble once again. Kids must help Batman and Robin to stop these dastardly foes in BATMAN JUSTICE UNBALANCED. Mysterious ticking, bejeweled eggs have been delivered to three of Gotham's leading citizens. Kids join the Dynamic Duo in securing the ticking eggs, disarming them, and discovering and decoding the messages they contain.
Kids cruise Gotham City in the Batmobile to collect clues, using Batman's grappling hooks and Batarangs, but they can't unlock certain areas until they have played for a while. Kids must play logic games to overcome obstacles created by the villains. In one, kids help Batman and Robin eavesdrop on the Penguin's henchmen to determine how to undo an alarm system. In another, they align six-sided robotic umbrellas to form a complete circuit of matching colors and patterns.
Is it any good?
This exciting mystery, with five stellar, multi-leveled logic activities, is both educational and entertaining. Spooky music and dark scenes add to the excitement. Because the clues change each time the game is played, kids will enjoy giving it a second and third go. Plus it is very cool to be Batman's virtual sidekick!
Explore, discuss, enjoy
Families can talk about the game's focus on problem-solving rather than action-hero antics. Did you expect this style of gameplay from the Batman franchise? Do you like it? Why or why not?
