    It's a nice attempt to honor Konami's previous arcade games, but it falls very short. Every stage consists of the same thing. Walk right, punch enemy, walk some more, punch more enemy's, walk, fight easily defeated boss. There's no variety. The graphics are nice, if a little blocky, and the music is decent, but not great.

    The game is also easy, and you will have no problem rushing through the eight skimpy levels in a matter of hours. Add in the simplistic combat that becomes repetitious very quickly, level designs devoid of creativity and the fact that you can't level up or gain new moves and you have one disaster worth skipping.

    There's no platforming, no puzzle solving, no backtracking, no nothing: you just work your way across the stage until it abruptly ends. [Dec 2009, p.89]

    The only real change-up in the whole game is when the Turtles get shiny cybernetic-looking gear when they travel into the future. It's literally wave after wave of enemies through eight stages that serve as mere backdrops. And that wasn't really what was worth remembering from the old days.
