Heroes in a half shell…Turtle power!

I happened to be browsing the Internet and I happened to somehow stumble across a new game: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. A new game with a nostalgic theme.

Game developers DOTEMU have created a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, but it’s not just a new release. It’s a complete throwback to the classics of the 90’s, albeit with brand new graphics.

By sheer coincidence I heard about it a week or so before it’s release. When I heard about it I had to get it, so when it was released on 16th June I got it.

Luckily for me it was out on a day 1 release on Xbox Game Pass, so I was able to download it and have a game.

It’s brilliant!

I feel like I am back in the 90’s playing in the arcades or on a NES or SNES.

I have only played the arcade mode so far, but it lives up to the expectation which I had. That was the same amazing game as back then, with more modern up to date graphics and possibly a few new things that I’ve not discovered yet.

There’s plenty I can’t remember from the 90’s version that I’m not sure if they’ve added in this one. Combos are a bit feature in Shredder’s Revenge, and I can’t remember that in the original series, but it may have been a thing.

But there is plenty which does bring back memories. The side scrolling nature of the game, the beating up the foot clan and enemies, and of course throwing them through the screen. It’s all still there.

Oh and the sound and soundtrack, more memories! This is well done and really adds to the game experience too.

I have also made it to the level where you’re on a skateboard which is pretty challenging.

I started the arcade mode to bring back memories of playing it in the arcades, and it does deliver. This was such a great game to play, especially multi player, easily on par with The Simpsons which was also another arcade hit.

I look forward to playing the story mode soon too, to see what that has to offer.

I love games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. Not only for the nostalgic feel, but you can pick them up and start playing immediately. You can play for 30 minutes or an hour and do so much, in comparison to so many modern games which take hours.

If you like 90’s or retro games and grew up in the 90’s, you don’t need me to tell you this is a must have.
