Description

The Manhattan Project is a sequel to Mutant Ninja Turtles II. The third game in the series is very similar to the second one, being a Double Dragon-style brawler. The player selects one of the turtle protagonists who must then fight his way through the stages, taking out as many Foot Soldiers as possible, confronting and defeating the bosses, and finally facing Shredder. As opposed to the previous game, the turtle protagonists have each their unique powers.

Trivia

The first TMNT game wasn't titled as such in Japan, instead the NES port of the arcade game (which was renumbered II in the west) got to keep it's title as the first in the series. So because there was already a TMNT 2 in the US, but not in Japan, it got numbered differently in the different regions.
