Your Sinclair (Jan, 1991)
So what's the verdict? Well, for me Turtles has been a very pleasant surprise. Rumours had been circulating around the industry for ages that the game was really bad - apparently the American Nintendo and Amiga versions are absolutely terrible or something, and this game is based on them - but no, Probe have modified it rather a lot, and the finished Speccy thing only bears them a slight resemblance. In fact, it's really rather nifty. Don't expect the most in-depth game of all time - but for what it is, it's more or less perfect. I think it's excellent fun. Hurrah! (There you go - an entire Turtles review, and not one mention of the dreaded word "Cowabunga!") Oops!
This version was actually programmed by the team behind Savage and Dan Dare III, so it uses lashings of colour very well. The sprites aren't quite so nice as the Amstrad version, but the gameplay is just great. Guaranteed to please Turtles fans across the nation!
