Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Video Games
Taking some inspiration from the 1987 cartoon, video games have been a huge part of the TMNT franchise. While some of the turtle games are not very good, others offer great entertainment and a lot of fun.
Konami has created a number of different TMNT titles, with each one being unique in its own way. Some are more successful than others, but we’ve put together a list of the best turtle games for your next gaming session!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle games: Fall of the Foot Clan is a video game based on the 1987 animated TV series. It is a platformer with a neat player death mechanic, where you take control of a new turtle games each time you die.
The turtle games features characters from the TMNT series such as Splinter, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and April O’Neil. In this particular game, the player must race the Shredder and his Foot ninja to collect the Ashi No Himitsu.
This book details the history of the Foot Clan, which was founded in Japan by a martial arts master named Koga Takuzu. He used the blades of his enemies to forge a powerful helmet known as the Kuro Kabuto.
However, the Foot began to become a ruthless group. Their alliance with a witch, Kitsune, helped them carry out atrocities in the name of the Iron Demon. Many members of the Foot Clan, including Oroku Maji and Masato, began to disagree with their tactics.
After Oroku Saki was exiled to New York, he took the leadership of the Foot and became known as The Shredder. He soon allied himself with alien warlord Krang, transforming the Foot into an army of robotic Foot Soldiers. Using their advanced Utrom technology, the Foot are able to create weapons and equipment centuries ahead of their human opponents.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge
Originally created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have gone on to become one of the most iconic properties in pop culture. The heroes in a half-shell have influenced countless TV shows, movies, toys, video games, and more.
With their upcoming movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game: Shredder’s Revenge, coming out next week, the heroes in a half-shell are returning to the spotlight with a brand new trailer. Directed by Jeff Rowe, who worked on Spider-Verse and The Mitchells Vs The Machines, this iteration of the rambunctious heroes looks to take inspiration from the ’90s animated series while also tapping into modern trends in animation.
While the original comic book series had a dark, gritty tone, the animated series was often playful and more suited to younger audiences. This iteration of the franchise takes a similar approach, showing that even the turtles’ most recognizable baddies have goofy personality traits and non-threatening, mischievous plans.
This time around, the Turtle brothers are trying to win over New Yorkers by performing heroic acts and gaining their trust, but when April O’Neil (Ayo Edebiri) helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, they get themselves into over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them. As a result, the Turtles need all the help they can get in their fight to save the city. The trailer also showed off a new feature in the game, up to 6 player co-op, which gives players the chance to play alongside their favorite Turtles as they battle Shredder and his Foot Clan in the streets of New York.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time is a scrolling beat ’em up video game, based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series. It was released for the arcades in 1991 and ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1992, with its Japanese release coming a year later.
The SNES version is very similar to its arcade counterpart. It is very colorful and has great graphics, though it does not have the smooth animation that the arcade version did.
In the turtle games you play as any of the four turtles, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello or Michaelangelo and must use their powers to fight off Foot Soldiers and mutant wackos. You can attack using the “y” button, jump with the “b” button and execute special attacks by pressing both buttons at the same time.
This is a very good example of the genre, with some different moves to vary up the gameplay, some fantastic graphics and a fair bit of level and boss variety. It was also a very well made and faithful recreation of the cartoon.
The turtle games also features an interesting battle against Shredder, which is a much more creative and unusual way to fight him than the usual one. Instead of a regular slugfest, Shredder sits in a turret and can only be killed by grabbing and throwing Foot Clan soldiers out of the screen at him.
