10th Anniversary

In 2011, Julius Riecke worked on the Super Bat Puncher demo. Blitz Lunar joined him and created the soundtrack. Finally, Julius released it under the Morphcat Games label on June 1, 2011.


In the distant future, earth is haunted by extraterrestrial bats. They seem to appear out  of nowhere, but always come in large numbers, are highly susceptible to shock and tend to explode quickly. As a result, earth’s surface has been severely damaged, all major cities have been destroyed and the survivors have started to move underground.

After years of research, scientists believe to have found the plague’s source. The bats are supposedly coming from a tiny planet in the outer regions of a faraway solar system.

The Bat Excommunication and Eradication Force aka BEEF was created. It consists of brave young warriors in high-tech animal suits who are sent to BAT PLANET with the mission of investigating and disposing of the threat. You play as one of the heroes of BEEF. 


⚠ For two players on a Japanese Famicom system, pause the game and press UP on the second controller.

Love this game and the cool jetpack secret. Please complete it!


Should I come to Berlin with some Sushi and Pizza ? Dudes, finish this pearl, kickstarter it. You guys are NES genius... 4 games, 4 pearls.

Super Bat Puncher is a very nice platform and shoot'em up game. It is actually a rare game that you will enjoy more when the game is played with two people. On its own, it doesn't give much chance to progress.

Really cool game! Perhaps one of the best nes games on itch.io right now!

It is featured in my Top 5 of the Week. Check my video!

This game is multiplayer?


Yes, it's a 1-2players game :)


Amazing game. Morphcat is a great developer.


I can't get the birdie cuz my legs are too smol!!! i cant jump high enough TmT


That is so great ! Thanks for the physical release on Famicom cartridge *_*


wooa!! This is a great game, well done, it needs full version.


Will a full version be coming in the future? :)


Any news about full version?


YESSSS! I found this via some other online source a couple of years ago, but I am happy for the opportunity to toss you guys a few bucks in the hope that you'll finally expand this into a full game. :D
