> TEENAGE MUTANT HERO TURTLES - The Coin Op by Konami


• Completed by Brendan Phoenix & Vinny Mainolfi
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

## Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... ## So why on earth did the censors decide to change the word 'NINJA' to 'HERO'! Were they REALLY afraid that kids all over the United  Kingdom were going to masquerade around their local neighbourhoods terrorising the old folk and demanding pizza along with Ninja freedom?! I really do wonder sometimes...

Anyway - not one of my favourite games, but one worth playing, knowing that there actually is an ending worth seeing...


Technodrome is about to...


...


...


"TOTAL WHITE-OUT, DUDE!"


... EXPLODE! The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I - probably like Brendan - used a trainer version of the game to jump straight to level 11, which is the ending ;-)

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final level has been completed - I'm guessing there is some kind of boss to finish off - the screen cuts to a cool image of... erm... a robot kind of thing. Sorry - but I never read the storyline to any game. This is accompanied by a nice ending tune and a scolling epilogue, which reads: "EPILOGUE.... FREAKED THE FOOTS, MANGLED THE MOUSERS, AND TOTALLED THE TECHNODROME. THAT'S TURTLE POWER!! BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SHREDDER AND KRANG BURNED TO TOAST ? VAPORIZED TO MILK SHAKE ?? UNTIL WE KNOW, NONE OF US CAN SLEEP SAFELY IN OUR BEDS.. ER, SHELLS". Ah!... so the 'robot thing' a Technodrome :)

COMMENTS:

  • Brendan: Satisfactory ending - very close to the arcade ending, animation, tune, sideways scroller - just a pity no other pics - 6/10
     
  • Vinny: WOW! I honestly wasn't expecting this kind of ending; I was expecting a static black screen with the words "WELL DONE, YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE GAME". So, to get an ending tune, some animation, graphics AND an epilogue makes it a cool ending for me. I'd give it 7/10.
     
  • Kungfufurby: This ending gives a Commodore 64-style "Cowabunga!"... without the digitized vocals, though you do see the Technodrome explode.
     
  • Andy Vaisey: Decent ending, being suitably cartoon-esque. 6.5/10 sounds about right. Another piccie or two would have propelled it into 7 or 8 out of 10.
     
  • Andy Fisher: All in all it was a decent conversion from a coin-op that, looking back, was more about appealing to the comic book fans than actually providing some decent gameplay... I find it hard to play more than a couple of levels these days without getting bored.

    As for the ending, nice picture and explosion FX, reasonable music and a scrolly message... 6/10.
     
  • Brendan Phoenix: Was an ok conversion to be honest - they squeezed an awful lot in, including the pretty accurate ending. Fair play.

FINAL SAY: A few more pictures and it would have been closer to a perfect score!

G.E. RATING: 6.5 / 10
