With April O'Neil held hostage by The Shredder's thugs, Bebop and Rocksteady, once again, it's up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to come to her rescue! Play as all four of the turtle heroes, rescue April, and then rescue your sensei Splinter from The Shredder's clutches deep in the bowels of The Technodrome itself.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an action game based on the late eighties/early nineties cartoon series of the same name. Play as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael (one turtle only, but the ability to swap between turtles at any time) as you save your friends and battle The Shredder and his cronies. There are no 'lives', as such - when you lose a turtle, he becomes 'captured', and you cannot use him again until you rescue him from a place hidden in the overworld.Gameplay takes place in two perspectives: a top-down view, which lets you run around and explore buildings, sewers and other places. When entering places from the top-down view, the perspective shifts to a side-scrolling view, where most of the battling takes place. In addition to each turtle's main weapon, sub-weapons (such as shuriken) can be acquired, to use at foes - these have a limited use.
Carnivorous robots chow-down in China Town, while brutal Ninjitsu Warriors, blood descendants of the deadly "Foot" Clan, bust-up bystanders from the Bronx to Broadway. Police SWAT Teams can't stop them, but the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can! 'Cause, powered by slices of pizza, they're always ready to rumble - with nunchukus, Katana Blades, and a party bus loaded with Anti-Foot Clan Missiles. So team up with the turtles, Raphael, Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Donatello, then switch on the tortoise radar, following your map and sixth sense past savage traps and secret sewage passages. Knock heads with the nasty Ninjitsu and either splatter them senseless or get yourself turned into turtle soup!
The Shredder: You are here because the outside world rejects you. THIS is your family. I am your father. I want you all to become full members of the Foot. There is a new enemy: freaks of nature who interfere with our business. You are my eyes and ears. Find them! Together we will punish these creatures, these… turtles.

The craft being beyond repair they decided to blend in with humans by constructing exosuits, seeking employment and slowly gaining enough money buy a building turn into the Techno Cosmic Research Institute were they built a transmat so they could return home. A byproduct of their experiments with the transmats is the Ooze, thirteen years ago a road accident while on their way to a disposal site led to them losing a canister down the sewers which led to the turtles and Splinter becoming mutated.
They come to they aid of Professor Honycutt, a brilliant scientist whose mind is trapped in the body of an android, who is being hunted down by Federation soldiers who want him to build a transmat device which they hope to use to further their militaristic ambitions. Realizing that this "Fugitoid" may well be their key to returning home they decide to stay with him. The turtles and their new friend go to an alien cantina to try and arrange passage off the the planet but the bar is soon raided by soldiers of an alien race known as the Triceratons who kidnap Honycutt. Stealing an aircar the turtles follow the Triceratons to what they they think is their base but are shocked to learn is a spaceship which is on it's way to the Triceraton Homeworlds.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are left with mixed feelings, relieved to see two dangerous enemies gone and that Rocksteady and Bebop had apparently turned over a new leaf,, but uneasy knowing Shredder and Slash were still out there and that they would likely cross paths with both again in the future.
Four baby turtles mutated by toxic goo called mutagen and trained in the art of ninjutsu by fellow mutant Master Splinter. The Turtles different fighting styles and personalities build off one another making them a formidable team.
[…] Cowabunga Dudes! My now 6 year old is obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and so we have it, a TMNT party! This particular party theme is trending right now and there are so many fabulous party ideas, I hope you can gather some inspiration from my party as well! This party was featured on Hostess with the Mostess, here! […]
When I was a kid way back in the pre-Internet Stone Age of 1988, I received about $5 a week in allowance. That wasn’t a lot of money, at least not compared to some of my friends, but I still made the best of every Abraham Lincoln that I received each week, and I don’t mean that I put the money into a savings account so I could collect a small amount of interest and eventually buy myself a car or something equally important. Instead, I bought Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures, a new one each week, because I was downright obsessed with those classic toys and all of the awesome accessories that came with them.
And now the action figures. I know, I bet you never expected to have this exciting of a Tuesday. Another caveat: I’ve excluded almost all of the figures from the original 1988 batch, because they weren’t as great as the more detailed figures that would follow in the next five years, and the turtles are basically Hall of Fame status anyway. Except maybe Michaelangelo, because his stupid plastic nunchucks broke within weeks of taking him out of the package. Also, if you were a fan of the Slash action figure, I have bad news for you – he was automatically disqualified for having the worst packaging quote.
The turtles sure were lucky that Donatello knew how to invent a portal that could bring a Ronin rabbit to the present from 200 or so years in the past, because it definitely helps in the fight against Shredder. But Usagi deserved a lot of credit for adapting rather well to the future. Sure, he didn’t have anything to love for back in feudal Japan, but it would be pretty alarming for any of us normal mutant rabbits to suddenly wind up in New York City.
Like He-Man’s Castle Grayskull before it, the Technodrome was great in theory. In the cartoon series, it was this massive, burrowing lair of Krang, Shredder and the Foot Clan, so it had to be big enough to provide sleeping arrangements for several hundred people, mutants and aliens. It was basically an underground Death Star. But then you put the toy version together, and it’s no bigger than all four turtles stacked on top of each other, before it opens up to reveal a few spots for the Foot and your good guys. Don’t get me wrong, the Technodrome was awesome, obviously, but I had the GI Joe aircraft carrier at one point, and that thing took up 1/5th of my bedroom. Toy scale used to mean something, damn it.
If 7-year-old me read the trades, he would be beside himself today with the news that his favorite TV show, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” would be moving to his favorite network, “Nickelodeon”. Present-Day me thinks that’s adorable, reflects on our current milieu of toy-based properties and their relationship to the emotional development of adults, and then returns to some recreational reading. 7-year-old me weeps for his future.
Already in development, this new deal puts a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie over at Paramount with Scott Mendick (“300?) producing. The movie is slated for 2012 but Variety doesn’t mention whether or not it’s staying live-action or if they’re reconsidering animation nor does it mention if the 2012 film will be a reboot. At this point, I’d say we’re looking at a live-action reboot with a possible tie-in to the new CG-animated TV series on Nickelodeon, also set to premiere in 2012. Nickelodeon will also work with its long-time partner Playmates to plan an all-out assault on parents’ wallets.
7-year-old me stopped reading mid-way through the first paragraph and went back to having Raphael make a one-turtle assault on the Technodrome, but adult-me hopes that Viacom will let this property just be its charming self rather than awkwardly trying to make it cool and gritty.
No matter your age or the age of your sad-inner-child, hit the jump for what this means in terms of rebooting the project, the upcoming film, and how a new generation can bug their weary parents for every new action figure of Raphael (or whomever their favorite ninja turtle may be).
Tatsu kicks Casey in the crotch, then a left roundhouse kick to his face, and then a left hook to his face, knocking him to floor with the injuries he sustained from Tatsu's attack. Casey, who is injured manages to reach for a golf club and as Tatsu approaches him, Casy struck Tatsu in the stomach with his golf club. As Tatsu aches in extreme pain
