Game Introduction

Players can choose to play either Leonardo (blue, katana blades); Raphael (red, sais); Michealangelo (orange, nunchakas); or Donatello (purple, bo staff).

Game Play

Killing an enemy will give you one point that includes bosses. You can collect pizza which increases your health to max. The thing about this game is you can interact with the objects around you like the parking meters that you can whack into the oncoming foot soldiers or the fire hydrant which blasts water all over the place.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Trick: On level two part two, the sewer, if you stand right on the very edge of the platform, no one can hit you, but you can hit them.

Bonus: Hit The skate boarding lady on Level 2 to gain an additional point.

Bonus: On Level 2 Part 2 (Sewer) the end of level boss is Baxter in his Flying Mouser Machine. If you use the edge of platform trick (so you wont get killed), kill all the mousers that are dropped (one mouser = one point). Just keep killing them and Baxter will fly away. If you kill Baxter you only receive one point, but killing all the mousers yields many more.

Bonus: Walk along so that a Yellow Foot soldier (boomerang man) gets stuck behind an obejct (e.g. a fire hydrant). Move close enough to the enemy so that he begins to throw his boomerang and contine to hit the projectiles to gain points.

Trick: On the next to last level (the end boss is Granitor), when a module (the big drill that Rocksteady comes out of on Level 1) comes up out of the ground lots of Blue Papela bugs will be released. As soon as the door opens, jump into the air as high as possible and then drop down performing a heavy swing. If you time the move right you will destroy all the bugs at the same time.
