Summary

could well be the best...

The Good

This game is probably the best TMNT game i have ever played. The different direction from the typical side scrolling is a welcome difference.

The the slight metroid take on the game makes it very welcome, and there are a lot of puzzles that always keep you involved. It is an incredibly hard game (again like metroid), but really keeps you addicted. Its a very long game, partly because its so hard, and its not for the faint hearted. The atmosphere and music is very gritty for a TMNT game. And considering i played this when i was very young, it was quite scary. Its quite amazing that a game boy game of its age can still make you get scared when you enter the long corridor before the boss, and there's that sound of the screeching door...you don't want to carry on.

The Bad

The fact that the turtles have limited uses and can't do much, for example: Leonardo can spin downwards and destroy blocks, but the ability isn't used much in the game. The turtle favored most for play would be Michelangelo, as he has a great hoovering ability, and since all turtles in the game have the same attacks he is the best to use.T

The Bottom Line

A metroid type turtles game that is very difficult, but very good.
