This walkthrough is for the UK version of the game, though l'm sure the other 
versions are just as poor. 

The game is a side scrolling adventure. 
There are two difficulty levels, NORMAL and HARD, the only difference is HARD
has a few more bad guys.
There are no save points, this is probably because it will only take about
2 hours to complete. 
Kicking enemies will suffice to win most battles, though you can use the
weapons for variety.
The Nimble suit is useful as it lets you jump over enemies and get 
behind them.
If all your lives are used, you will be returned to the start of the stage.
If you switch the console off you will be returned to the start of the game.
Smash all boxes you find.
Use Offensive suit to break grey coloured boxes.
Press B to skip dialogue.
The layout of the controls are in the OPTIONS menu. 


STAGE 1; Gotham Air&Space
=========================

Watch the opening sequence or press B to skip.
Break the box and kill the bad guys. An enemy in a floating platform will
appear, kill him for the door key.
Before opening the locked door go through the door in the middle of the room.
Smash either the middle or right hand box for a suit, the other box contains
another floating platform guy, when you break a box the other two will
disappear.

In the next room dodge the spinning/falling blocks
(walk around the edge of the room)
Kill the guy at the control panel in the corner.
Jump down the hole in the middle of the room.

He'll set the Ghoul on to you, use the defensive suit and block his attacks
