Retro Game #6: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Shortly after completing game #5, I decided to continue the Turtles theme and try the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES.

I actually owned a copy of this one when I was younger, but I hated it. It was just too hard. I kept on getting steamrolled on the surface and killed in the sewers. So, I never even thought about trying this one without cheating. Once again, I used Nestopia on my PC to play this game.

Honestly, I found this game to be much more boring than the second one. Sure, the gameplay was different and there was a little more variation, but it just wasn't much fun. I chose to play this game just because I had never gotten very far in it when I was younger. It's still just as hard as I remembered, so I used an infinite energy Game Genie code to give myself a chance to see the ending. It's kind of weird, though. There were still some things that could take some of my turtle's energy, so I had to be careful in certain areas. The rewind feature became useful in these areas. ^^;

Anyway, a few repetitive hours later, I finally got to see the ending that had eluded me for a very long time.

This ending sucked. I had no idea that Splinter could change back to human form whenever he wanted. :good:

6 down, 44 to go. We're in the middle of the year, so if I want to reach my goal of 50, I really need to kick this into overdrive. I think I'll be getting a lot done over the next few months, though. My best friend is on break from school this summer, so I think we'll be tackling a lot of retro games. ^_^

Next game: Double Dragon for the Sega Master System
