As Tartarugas Ninja estão de volta, desta vez em emocionante aventura para Game Boy.

I have to say this is well worth shelling out for.Even those who claim to detest the Turtles should turn a blind eye to the characters and enjoy this fast-paced and ultra-slick beat 'em up.

Det här är verkligen bra. Jättekul gameplay och grafik helt i klass med t ex Gargoyle's Quest som flyttar Game Boy:ens gränser ytterligare ett steg längre bort. Det här spelet hör till de Game Boy-titlar du mer eller mindre MÅSTE ha i din samling!

This has got everything a turtle fan could ask for - great graphics, excellent sound and loads and loads of action! The game is thoroughly enjoyable, and offers plenty of challenge - even the most seasoned beat 'em up fans will find the going tough! If you're into the heroes with half shells, put this at the top of your shopping list.

Molón, espectacular y trepidante, son los calificativos que mejor podrían definir a este juego. Parece mentira las cosas que se pueden hacer con nuestra Game Boy: magnifico sonido , scroles super suaves, personajes de gran tamaño y todo ello envuelto en una adicción sin límites. Increíble pero cierto. ¡Ah!, y si mañana te despiertas con una concha en la espalda, no te preocupes, la turtlemanía siempre tuvo efectos secundarios.

Konami is one of the few companies you can count on to support a hot title like the Turtles with an equally exciting game. The scene is familiar, with a nice side-scrolling action adventure unfolding for all four turtles on their quest to save April. Good graphics, Bosses and more!

Nintendo Life (Aug 14, 2010)
This is a well-presented title with great music, sound effects and visuals that combine to capture the look of the show well. Gameplay is what matters, though, and this features varied levels and an assortment of different enemies that should provide a fun time even if you are not a fan of the Ninja Turtles (or this particular incarnation). The lack of adjustable difficulty is unfortunate, but otherwise Fall of the Foot Clan is an enjoyable gaming experience.

If you are a fan of the turtles then Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan should not disappoint you. For those who don't care for the turtles then this game doesn't offer anyhting you can't find somewhere else. As far as action games go this one is not too different from the majority.

As an overall package, it's hard to fault this game. Actually, for a short trip, it's perfect. You'll breeze through it in no time, but the action is just enough to keep anyone occupied, regardless of their age. Those looking to get their moneys worth will probably be highly disappointed. TMNT fans should have a field day and this is by far the best of the portable turtle games.

Trotz des einseitigen Spielablaufes (Gehen, Springen. Prügeln) macht das Game Spaß. Das liegt wohl an der sehr schönen Grafik, die vor Details nur so strotzt, und dem packenden Sound, der für hohe Motivation sorgt. Ein nettes Game für zwischendurch, aber ohne Hitqualitäten.

Play Time (Aug, 1993)
Die Turtles-Premiere wird vor allem durch die großen und schön animierten Sprites dominiert, die der Fan sofort als seine Kumpels aus dem Fernsehen identifiziert. Die Hintergrundgrafiken sind recht hübsch gelungen und scrollen zum Teil in mehreren Ebenen brav an der Action vorbei. Der Klassiker unter den Turtles-Modulen motiviert auch heute noch. Damit sollte dieser Befreiungsaktion nichts mehr im Wege stehen...

Overall, I think anyone who owns a Game Boy should own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan. It’s a very entertaining title, and although it does have its flaws, it is certainly worth far more than merely one playthrough. This game came out back in 1990, and it still very much holds up to this very day, in my opinion.

Die Game-Boy-Umsetzung des Schildkrötenspiels läßt die enttäuschende NES-Version schnell vergessen. Neben brillanten Intro- und Zwischenbildern wartet auch das eigentliche Spiel mit beeindruckender Grafik auf: Von der Animation der Spielfiguren über die großen Endgegner bis hin zu den atmosphärischen Hintergründen stimmt optisch einfach alles. Auch die verschiedenen Musikstücke vermögen den in dieser Hinsicht nicht gerade verwöhnten Game-Boy-Besitzer durchaus zufriedenzustellen. Leider ist das Spielprinzip steinalt. Springen und prügeln nahezu ohne versteckte Extras - auf Dauer machen da "Super Mario Land" oder "Gargoyle's Quest" mehr Spaß. Gut, daß die Idee mit den eingestreuten Knobeltests Abwechslung in die Prügelkulisse bringt. In Kombination mit der gewohnt guten Konami-Spielbarkeit und dem teils recht einfallsreichen Levelaufbau springt somit noch eine Menge Spaß raus.

RetroGame Man (Dec 12, 2017)
In summary, TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan is a short 2D action game for the Game Boy that is borderline fun that has some decent graphics and sound. The gameplay is a bit slow and it is very short, but it is still cheap so if this sounds like your type of game, picked it up!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Fall of the Foot Clan is surprisingly good. I haven’t had much luck with Game Boy side-scrollers and I wasn’t expecting much from this title, but Konami showed me that they can work their magic on even the small screen. I already said to buy this game and there’s no sense in repeating myself… but I will anyway. Buy this game! There, I did it. Now actually go buy the game. I mean it. *sigh* kid’s these days, they never listen to their elders. Ah well, it’s not my fault if you miss out on this killer title. So whatever man – whatever.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan is forgettable with dull gameplay and little variety apart from the uninspired mini-games. It's not at all what you'd expect from Konami and it comes across as a very disappointing and shallow effort.
