Movie tie-in games are more often not a shameless cash grab, offering very little that can’t be had in other games, and perhaps worse yet, not doing its movie theme justice. I had a dreaded feeling when I read that a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles official movie game had been released, but I’m happy to say this was unwarranted. Created by the Game Bakers, the developers behind Combo Crew (read our full review of it here), the TMNT game adopts that same screen bashing goodness that I praised when Combo Crew was released.
Naturally, you get access to all four of the Ninja Turtles, Leo, Mikey, Donnie and Raph, and fight through waves and waves of enemies, not unlike the side-scrolling classics of old. You can upgrade your favoured Ninja Turtle with more powerful attacks, weapons, power boosts and training. There is a Story Mode, which presumably will loosely follow the movie, as well as a Survival Mode. Unfortunately, since the game is published by Nickelodeon, the game does still seem like a bit of a cash-grab; despite the fact the game costs $3.99 USD, there are still in-app purchases. Still, it does look like the game does capture the frantic nature of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world, so it’s hard not to like it.
