From The Devs Of Streets Of Rage 4
Those of a certain age may recall spending hours upon hours trying to make it to the Technodrome to get a chance to bash Krang in the original NES Teenage Mutant Turtles game. Slightly more people may remember dumping handfuls of quarters into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time arcade game, and rejoicing when it was released, and slightly improved, on the SNES. There were a few between these two, but really, what do you remember from Mutant Nightmare? If you are one of us, then the look of the newly announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge might just warm the cockles of your heart.
The intro trailer over at Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN does show a bit of gameplay towards the end and it is gloriously pixelated in homage to those games of yore. It keeps the side scrolling gameplay of those originals, with a fists, feet and weapons flying everywhere while the boys battle their old nemesis, with a soundtrack that is similar to the original, if a bit updated to appeal to the younger crowd. There is no indication of combo moves, but it is still definitely four player.
As you can see in the screenshot, the Turtles haven’t changed much over the years. All the work is left to Don and Raph, while Mikey practices his poses and Leo pretends to be a good leader by yelling at everyone from the corner of the screen. It will be out on Steam and console sometime in the future.
DotEmu today announced they're publishing this new side-scrolling thwackfest, with development duties falling to Tribute Games. Tribute have previously made games including Mercenary Kings and the fine Flinthook.
