Turtles cleaned out the pockets of gamers everywhere over Christmas, but we've only just sent the game for review! It's basically the same as the Speccy and Amstrad versions reviewed a couple of months ago and is quite a good laugh to play. Unfortunately, the scrolling's jerky and there's a long delay as the game decompacts. Recommended to Turtle fans only.

As predicted, TMNT was just released before Christmas, taking the number one spot with, reputedly, over half a million copies sold on all formats. The UK version of the game is a slightly altered copy of the American game, which in turn is copied from the Nintendo’s release which was pretty good. The US Turtles was pretty abysmal, dogged with loading problems and gameplay faults while Nintendo’s Turtles was fast and playable. Unfortunately, the Mirrorsoft’s Turtles appears to have struck an unhappy balance between the two.
Spelet är ett actionspel där man huvudsakligen ska förflytta sig mellan plattformar och ibland även simma runt i undervattenstunnlar. Grafiken är rätt medelmåttig och det finns knappast någonting revolutionerande i den eller någonting annat som rör spelet.

Bei der Grafik muß man schon mit der Lupe hinschauen, um einen Unterschied feststellen zu können, auch das Scrolling ruckelt wie eh und je. Soundmäßig ist ebenfalls nicht gerade ein Symphinieorchester am Werk, dafür kann man immer noch Spielstände abspeichern, was für ein Actiongame ja nicht selbstverständlich ist. Also alles wie gehabt: ein 08/15-Plattformspielchen, dessen Steuerung zu wünschen übrig läßt.
Well you've already bought this one by the crate load, so I guess this review is of more historical interest than anything else. Wisely Mirrorsoft declined to send out pre-prod versions for reviews, thus missing pre-Xmas reviews, but with the Amiga simply a glance would reveal a chronic scroll and banal graphics suffering mediocre animation. St-portitus strikes again! Gameplay is an unremarkable mix of overhead-view maze with side-on combat. Sluggish response makes the latter unsatisfying, and repetition soon sets in. It's a dull game which would've sunk without trace if it didn't have the Turtles name.
Power Play
"Teenage was?" werden sich viele von Euch fragen, wenn sie den vollen Namen dieses Spiels, nämlich "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" zum ersten Mal hören. Zur Erklärung: Die jugendlichen Ninja-Schildkröten sind in den USA eine beliebte Comic-Serie.
Power Play
Man sollte dem Tierschutzbund einen Tip geben: Was Imageworks mit den putzigen Heldenkröten anstellt, grenzt schon an Tierquälerei. Die getesteten Versionen können weder technisch noch spielerisch überzeugen: Das Spiel ist lahm, das Leveldesign eine große Gähnnummer, die Kollisionsabfrage ungenau, die Grafik unansehnlich und der Dudel-Sound beleidigt die Ohren. Besonders der Unterwasserteil hätte eine extra Level-Gurke verdient: Die Taucheinlage ist so dynamisch wie ein toter Esel. Da wollte wohl jemand ganz schnell das ganz große Geld mit den Turtles machen; so sieht das Spiel auch aus.

It doesn't have the word 'Ninja' in the title... but even that doesn't save it from being utterly awful in every way. you'd have more fun playing with a real turtle. Or a real mutant.
