The "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is loosely based on the 1987 cartoon of the same name. After it was released in May 1989, it became one of the console's most popular games. Although it uses the same characters, the game features an original story created just for the NES. In the story, the Turtles are out to grab the Life Transformer Gun from the evil Shredder. With this gun, they can turn their sensei, Master Splinter, from a rat back into a human. Along the way, the Turtles must also rescue April and even Splinter after the Foot Clan takes them. This game in the action genre will take the average gamer roughly 3 to 4 hours to finish. Its high difficulty level will ensure you won't finish it on the first try, which translates into hours of enjoyable replayability.As you'd expect from a "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" game, you can play as all four Turtles. Each of the "TMNT" characters is controlled the same way but sports different weapons. Donatello attacks with his long bo staff, giving him a longer reach than his brothers. Raphael attacks with his sai, making up for his lack of range with a fast attack speed. Each Mutant Ninja Turtle has his own life bar. When the health of one Turtle gets low, you can swap to another character instantly. Finding and eating pizza in the levels will restore the TMNT back to full health. If one of the team members runs out of health, that means he's out of the action permanently. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can also find additional weapons to use, including shurikens and scrolls."Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for the NES takes place over the course of six levels. The levels in these games occur in environments ranging from the sewers to the Technodrome. While the core of these levels features platforming action, the player will be frequently introduced to new gameplay activities. For example, in level 2, you will need to swim underwater to disarm eight bombs. In stage 3, you'll take control of the Turtle Van and drive around the city and also explore on foot, locating missiles to destroy barricades. You'll fight a large number of enemies in the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" games for the NES. You'll fight "TMNT" mainstays such as Bebop, Rocksteady, and Shredder. You'll also fight brand new enemies created just for this version.The graphics for this Nintendo title are a mixture of the cartoon and the original comic book. The heroes themselves resemble their comic counterparts, but they sport the colored masks from the cartoon. The levels themselves also feature a darker color palette. The music in this NES title was composed by Jun Funahashi, who also worked on a number of Konami titles. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for the NES sold millions of copies. This popular Nintendo game can still be a blast for fans of the franchise. If you're looking for a fast paced action game with your favorite scaly heroes, then you can like the variety of content found in this title.
