TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge
Last week TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge released on all platforms and our team are so excited to try it out and bring back the memories. We have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles within our licence portfolio, allowing us to make designs for all your favourite characters.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a game developed by Tribute Games and published by Dotemu. It is based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. It is inspired by the 1987 Turtles animated series and borrows stylistically from the arcade and home console games developed by Konami during the 80s and 90s. The game was released for Windows, Linux, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 16, 2022.
The Turtles voice actors from the 1987 series reprise their roles. Music was composed by Tee Lopes, with contributions from guitarist Jonny Atma, rapper Mega Ran, singer Mike Patton, and Ghostface Killah and Raekwon of the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan.
Shredder’s Revenge is a side-scrolling action brawler with a pixelated art style. In the game, the player assumes control of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, April O’Neil, Master Splinter, and unlockable character Casey Jones as they combat opponents including the Foot Clan, Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, and Shredder in locations ranging from New York City sewers to Dimension X. Each character has their own attributes and plays differently. They also have unique super moves and taunts. As the player progresses each stage, they will find pizza boxes, which can be used to heal the player, and other pies that grant players extra strength and infinite supers for a brief period of time.
The game features two different modes: Arcade Mode and Story Mode. In arcade mode, players only have a limited number of lives, and the game must be completed in one sitting. Story mode allows players to convert accumulated points for health, extra lives, additional combat moves, and a special ability known as Radical Mode which temporarily enhances the player character’s combat abilities. In story mode, each stage also has optional side-content, challenges. and collectibles. In addition to the single-player mode, the game supports six-player cooperative multiplayer both online and locally. Players can high-five to share health or work together to perform certain moves.
So far both gamers and critics have positive reviews of the game stating that its “very nostalgic” and “has great visuals”. Reviewers have also praised playable character roster and combat mechanics. The only criticism that has been received that they wished story gameplay would be longer.
