Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project NESReview

I love this game even 15 years later! This is an awesome beat-em up game with everyone’s favorite four turtles, Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. The game starts when the turtles are vacationing on a beach, the evil Shredder comes and steals Manhattan Island. The turtles go back into action, brawling baddies on the beach and then surfboarding back to NYC (first 2 levels).

If you’ve played TMNT the Arcade Game, its the same system, just with more diverse fun. The graphics and gameplay are taken straight from the previous TMNT Arcade Game (NES port). New moves include throws, and each turtle has their own special maneuver that will drain health when used. There is a wide array of character bosses from the cartoons and movies. Rocksteady, Bebop, Tokka, Rahzer, Super Shreder, Krang (and his body), Groundchuck, Slash and more.

More foot soldiers, more tricks, traps and obstacles! Its an amazingly great game! It was awarded best game of 1992 by Electronic Gaming. Find this game, rent it, buy it, play it and you’re in for some fun, especially with a friend as another turtle.
