After rescuing April, Splinter is kidnapped by Shredder and you have to save him now. Of course as I explained throughout the rest of this review, there is more, but this section is for how the game plays. Sound The music in this game is very good. It plays like any other beat-em-up, move right, with one exception, beat up whoever's on the screen, rinse and repeat. Those two features are something I want someone to bring back in a possible future beat-em-up Turtles game. I mean I've seen better, yes, but for what it's worth they aren't terrible especially compared to that other Turtles game I reviewed last time.
Graphics 8 Sound 9 Addictive 9 Depth 7 Story 7 Difficulty 8. Depth The game itself isn't very big in terms of levels and variety in the villains, but it more than makes up for it in terms of level length and design. Your goal is to rescue April O' Neil. Overall, a pretty decent difficulty all the way through. It's not insanely difficult, but it does have some degree of challenge to it so that the game doesn't get boring. The sound effects in this game are pretty good as well, adding to the experience. .
Difficulty Because this is an arcade game, it's meant to get you off pretty quickly so that way people aren't waiting forever to play the game I know that some people can absolutely own arcade games, but you know what I mean. Also, there is one section where instead of moving to the right, you move down. You can also attack in midair and throw people across the screen and into walls. Defeat Shredder and rescue her. The cutscenes between levels are drawn like they're from the cartoon and get the point across pretty well.
You usually get to these upper planes by jumping up to them. Story The story is basically the same as the game I reviewed last time. Rather simple plot, but then again, most plots for these games were not very drawn out anyway. Good thing I'm playing this on Vizzed, otherwise I might use up a ton of quarters at an actual arcade that might just happen to have this game if any. With good gameplay, great music, and some good ideas, it's a shame that people often overlook this game and look at Turtles in Time instead, by the way that game's next.
At the end of each level is a boss. The final fight against Shredder can be pretty tricky if you don't know what you're doing. So without further procrastination, here's my review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the arcade version. While I agree that Turtles in Time is a better game, this game is actually really good and has some ideas that I wish they had used again. The Turtles themselves are distinguishable from each other and the enemy sprites are pretty good as well. I got through the game pretty quickly, yes, but not before dying probably 30-40 times, maybe even more.
This is something I don't normally see in a beat-em-up game and I think it adds something new to the level. Each level has its own music track, all of which are nice to listen to. The gameplay feels good and it really helps when I know I am in complete control of my character at all times. The opening theme is the one from the 80's show which is a huge plus. April gets kidnapped and you have to rescue her. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles World 4 Players Review by: - 8.
The levels are fun, the music is good, and the combat is fun. I give it an 8. It's hard to find a track that I dislike and that's pretty good. Addictiveness This game is fun to play over and over again and I'm sure I'll come back to it from time to time when I'm looking for something to do. The animations for this game are also very smooth and fluid, making it look like you're actually swinging your sword or other weapon for that matter, but I tend to play as Leo. After saving Splinter, you go to the Technodrome to fight Shredder and Krang in the final battle. Anyway, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an arcade classic, but it's also somewhat overlooked due to Turtles in Time.
The joystick moves, button 1 jumps and button 2 attacks. Overall, the gameplay is great and is one of the best aspects about this game. You'll go through levels fighting your way through foot soldiers, roadkill rodneys and many other types of enemies. Levels usually have an upper plane and a lower plane. Graphics For a late 80's arcade title, this doesn't look half bad. But like everyone knows, good graphics don't always equal a good game.
