    tips, locations of music CDs, sketchbooks, special items and 
    boss strategies.

    1.1   USEFUL MOVES
    CROUCHING SWEEP - this is a must, with one strike you can knock down
    all surrounding enemies so you can use your Batcuffs.
    WAKING SWEEP - keep pressing A or B when you get knocked down, it
    will bring down all nearby opponents.
    RUNNING ATTACKS - simply press A or B while running to knock down
    any enemy. You can start a Combo running too (see the next move).
    COMBO - can be done pressing repeatedly A or B buttons while holding
    the L button. Excellent against most bosses. You can start a Combo
    STEALTH MOVES - you can walk in stealth mode pressing Z once, with
    this you can knock the enemies down with one blow from behind (with
    you didn't alert them). The crouch mode is very silently as well.
    Use shadows for your advantage.
