Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The first game based on a hot TV cartoon series of the same name from
Konami is a fun, but frustrating, platform title that mixes top-down view
with standard side-scrolling action. Practically every adolescent boy
that owned a Nintendo has at least played this game. In the overhead
scenes, you explore the level, watching out for foot soldiers or street
cleaners that can plow you over. Once you enter a building or a sewer,
the action switches to a typical side-scrolling view. There are many
levels (i.e. buildings you can enter) in the game, each with its own
little goal. For instance, your mission in the first level is to rescue a
reporter friend of our Ninja Turtles, April O'Neil. Other levels require
that you defuse bombs by a dam, or rescue the Turtle's van, for example.
Although there is no multiplayer support, you can switch between each of
the four turtles at any time. If a turtle runs out of life, they get
captured by the enemies and disappear. You'll then have to control
another turtle and find the imprisoned friend somewhere on the same
level. As with the cartoons, every turtle has his own characteristic
weapons: Leonardo has a quick sword with a wide range, Donatello has a
powerful but slow Bo, Michelangelo has quick nunchuks, and Raphael
posseses almost useless Sais. There are also other limited weapons to be
found, such as shurikens, scrolls that shoot out waves, etc. Despite a
good variety of monsters, weapons, and missions, gameplay is severely
imbalanced. There are always so many enemies that in some areas it's
impossible to get past them without getting hit. There are also many
jumps that require that you get to the precise edge of platform and jump
with the precise height in order to make it to the other side. If your
reflexes are not superhuman level, this is very difficult to do. In
short, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles loses its appeal after you've failed
to make that darn crucial move too many times. If you're not a joystick
expert, stay away from this one, or play the much more forgiving TMNT 3:
Manhattan Missions instead.
