Bat-Man!

In the same spirit of Head over Heels, Knight Lore, Alien 8 and some others, pure isometrical fun, puzzle-like game, easy controls, it even has some options to show some visuals like shadows and other effects, a more modern music and all the fun from past games.

Take a look:

There wasn't a Commodore 64 version of this Batman which is strange.

Yep, Solstice (Solomon's Key is a 2D platformer) is a very nice comparison, and another game I wouldn't mind (a.k.a. I would really like haha) having in my collection if they made a remake (playing the NES rom is ok, but... not the same).

True, you got the other one, Batman: The Caped Crusader, or something like that, which was kind of a 2D adventure. Hmmm... strange, indeed.

Solstice had the best music on the NES period for the intro. I played Equinox on the SNES which also had great game play and music. Hard games though !
