Batman: The Brave and The Bold – The Videogame is a side-scroller beat 'em up/platformer with 2D animated visuals based on those of the cartoon series. Each level is presented as an episode and features Batman teaming up with one of several superheroes, including Hawkman, Robin, Green Lantern and Blue Beetle, to stop various supervillains. Players have access to several gadgets and can also summon another Jump-In Hero to perform a powerful attack. As the enemies are defeated, coins can be collected. They can be used to upgrade the various gadgets, making them more powerful.
The Nintendo DS version is a single-player game in which the player switches control between Batman and the available hero, using each of their abilities to progress through each level. Players with both versions of the game can control Bat-Mite in the Wii version via Nintendo DS connectivity.
