This is the first game in the Aero the Acro-Bat series. For other games in the series see the Aero the Acro-Bat category.

Aero the Acro-Bat is a SNES and Sega Genesis game released by Sunsoft in October 1993. It was created by David Siller (of Maximo: Ghosts to Glory fame) and developed by the now defunct Iguana Entertainment.

During the 16-bit era, Aero had a fair share of fame. Sunsoft used him as a mascot during the 16-bit console days. After the 16-bit decline, he disappeared and was forgotten until 2002, when Metro 3D decided to port this game for the Game Boy Advance, with a battery back-up (which the original versions lacked). Metro 3D was later purchased by Data Design Interactive, and the Aero the Acro-Bat rights were picked up by Zoo Digital who has them today.


Inspired in part by the "mascots with attitude" trend that was common following the introduction of Sonic the Hedgehog, it featured a red bat named Aero, who works and lives in a circus. He must defend the circus from an evil ex-clown called Edgar Ektor, who used to work in the same circus, but wants it shut down forever. Aero must also deal with his sidekick, Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel.
