Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time

Genre/s: Sidescrolling beat em' up
Platform: SNES
Player/s: Up to two players

Ah the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. This is the sequel to the original TMNT arcade game. However, this title was originally an arcade before being modified for the SNES. A few changes were made, but the gameplay is the same. In the arcade version for instance, up to four players could play at any time, but only two players for the SNES version.

Plot______________________________________________ _______________

The turtles are at home chillin and watching April reporting some news from Liberty Island. Then out of freakin nowhere, Krang flies in and steals the Statue of Liberty! Suddenly the screen goes nuts and the Shredder appears laughing and basically taunting the turtles. So that's basically it. The turtles jump into action and hit the streets of N.Y., eventually following the Foot back to the Technodrome where Shredder sends the shelled heroes thru a time portal.

Gameplay__________________________________________ ____________

It's like any other side scrolling beat em' up game. Pick your favorite turtle and press start. You have an array of attacks at your disposal. Besides your regular ground and air attacks, you also have a special attack when you press both jump + attack buttons at the cost of HP. The turtles can also run and do a shoulder charge or slide by pressing the jump or attack button when running. If you get close enough to an enemy and press the hit button when they're stunned, you can grab the foot soldiers and slam them from left to right sending any other enemies flying back and giving you some extra room to move. If you press down and attack while the enemy is stunned they will get launched towards the screen instead. This however, does not work on the rock soldiers in the latter part of the game.

Another addition to the SNES version is the "TIME TRIAL" and "VS" modes. Time trial has you playing one level at a time and times you from start to finish. In versus mode, you get to do battle with a buddy but can only chose from the four turtles.

The leader of the group, he weilds dual "ninjaken"
and is a master swordman.
He is calm in battle and is and excellent

Leo has a medium range with average speed,
good strength and a solid defence. A great character for any player to start with.

The smartest of the turtles, Don is a master of the Bo Staff, and a great capacity for science, technology and engineering.

Don has the longest reach of the four brothers.
He is slower compared to the rest, but he makes up with his strong defence.

Aggressive and hot-headed.Raph tends
to rush into battle
with his twin sais.His defence is
goo but is more known
for his offensive capabilities.

Raph is the fastest of the turtles and has a high attack
power. His defence is average but you have to catch him first.

Carefree and funloving. Mikey's weapon speciality are dual nunchakus. When not fighting the Foot, he is usually eating pizza or riding his skateboard in the sewers.

Mikey has mid to short ranged attacks with solid strenght to it. The second fastest turtle, Mikey can hold his own with any opponent just as well as his three brothers.


There was also a TV commercial. ( I know the quality sucks, but that's the only vid I could find... )

Overall this game is well rounded with fantastic colors and music. I've played this over and over and don't really tire of trying to beat my previous records.

The original arcade version may have had better graphics, but this game was perfectly made for the SNES. A "MUST HAVE"for any TMNT fan out there.
