Doesn't this Shredder dude ever take a break? Now he's gone and "kidnapped" the Statue of Liberty itself, and just as the Ninja Turtles were about to kick his butt, he tore open some kinda time portal thingy and flung them back into the past!

Now Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michaelangelo have to fight their way through time and tons of Foot Soldiers, mutant wackos, and more in order to bring liberty back and slam Shredder's butt all the way to Dimension X! Go, Turtles! Kick some shell and save us!

Level design

Turtles in Time contains much of the same level design from the Genesis game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist, but with the addition of completely unique Time Travel levels.

SNES version

Though very close to the original arcade version, the SNES game has undergone several important modifications. For example, the turtles now are warped into the prehistoric period after visiting the Technodrome instead of the sewers, and the Technodrome now is the fourth level. Some bosses have been swapped, the stage set in the future now uses the Mode 7 feature, and so on.
