Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Android, thumbnail 1
Raphael was always my turtle. I had an action figure, or toy as we called them in those days, and spent hours wiggling his little green arms pretending I was doing hideous ninja-based violence to street hoodlums.

Now I can finally throw that battered plastic lump away, because Nickelodeon has released a brawler to tie-in with the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

It's called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and sees you tapping and swiping your way through hordes of bugs and other bad guys.

The violence feels robust and chunky, which isn't a surprise considering the game was developed by The Game Bakers of Combo Crew fame.



You pick a turtle and whomp your way through a variety of levels. Earn enough power from combos and you can unleash a four-way QTE special move that sees each of the ninja smacking down on an enemy.

The game is premium priced, selling for £2.49 / $3.99, but there are some IAPs as well, which some of you are going to find a bit icky.

That's a shame because there's a solid nostalgic scrapper here with some interesting character progression, and the sort of touchscreen controls that make you wonder why anyone uses buttons.

If any of that sounds like it might be up your sewer, you can grab Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the App Store [buy] and the Google Play Store [buy] right this second.

The fact that Game Bakers made it is the ONLY reason I would give it a try. ;)

Hey I just read through the lengthy essay about how this app has IAP and collects user data from your phone. That sounds sketchy and I imagine that they'd need a constant internet connection. Does this app have to be connected online in order to play??

Don't throw away your lump of plastic! Pack it up and ship it my way. I don't know if this will satisfy my Turtle hunger. The original arcade game was my jam. And TMNT The Arcade game for NES was pretty good too. I'd take a port of one of those with NO IAP over this any day.

I hate premium experiences with IAP.

Same as combo crew so no point playing this.Game bakers could add something fresh to this but I think they were to Lazy to put anything.
Anyway,Combo crew was a unique fun game.
