  • Review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Virtual Console / NES)

    T-U-R-T-L-E POWER!

    Turtle mania was sweeping the world when this came out in 1989. That's probably why this game was so popular despite it being an unfair bag of dog's droppings! So popular was the franchise that Nintendo even bundled the NES with this game in Europe replacing the mighty Super Mario Bros cart. It's easy to see why so many...

  • Feature Ten Classic Games Which Would Be Great To Play On The NES Mini

    If only there was legit way of adding more games

    We really loved getting our hands on the NES Mini back in November last year; this diminutively-sized replica of Nintendo's nostalgic first home console really shows off some of the best games in the NES library. However, after a while even the greatest games in the world may feel a little bit stale,...

  • News Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Helped to Save NES

    In the UK they were heroes, not ninjas

    It's a popular perception that NES swept all before it when it was released, dominating sales and 8-bit popular culture in the late 1980s. While that's probably true in North America and Japan, Nintendo's debut home console actually had a slow and rather unsuccessful start in the UK, with distribution via...

  • News Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES Pulled from Virtual Console

    Time's up

    The NES version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been removed from Virtual Console in all regions. As always when games are pulled from the VC library there's no official explanation why Konami's 8-bit brawler has been taken off sale, but we'd expect it's something to do with the licence. But, as our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review...

  • Features Staff NES Stories

    Learn our shocking pasts

    To continue our celebration of 25 years of NES, the staff's gathered around the campfire to share their favourite memories of that little dream machine. Not everyone could make it to the party, unfortunately, but we're sure that those who couldn't had good reason to stay home. Join us now as we lay bare our souls to you and...

  • News TMNT increases in price for Europe

    A strange development recently (We are unsure when), as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now also costs 600 Wii Points in Europe (And Australia) instead of 500, just like America.

    Not that this really matters, as the game's not very good. We sincerely hope that you don't download it now, why would you buy a stinker for an increased price!? Save your Wii...

About The Game

Note: This game is no longer available on the Wii Shop.

Cowabunga! Players take control of the turtles in a half shell and rescue reporter April O'Neil from the clutches of the evil Shredder. Battle against the Foot Ninja Clan as Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael with their trademark weapons and ninja abilities.

Search through five stages and dozens of areas throughout the New York City sewers, rooftops and ultimately Shredder's Technodrome to save April. Players must scarf down some pizza to keep up their energy, as they'll need it to defeat Shredder. Turtle Power!
