Donatello chases Princess April across three classic 8-bit genres!

It's a fun little distraction, at least...

I love Nick Donny, but his fantasies do kinda creep me out at times!

YOU'RE TOO SLOW-Sonic The Hedgehog

This has got to be one of the coolest games on the TMNT site right now, it goes through 3 different levels, all with bosses and awesome "princesses" at the end :lol:

The Legend of Zelda level with Kraang (prime?) boss fight

Super Mario Bros. level with Fishface boss fight

Star Wars/Turtles arcade games level with Shredder boss fight (complete with a cameo of the technodrome and the line "Tonight I dine on turtle soup"

I wouldn't necessarily call it a ripoff when it's clearly an intentional homage/tribute. All in good fun when it comes to Donny's weird dreams.

One thing I appreciate about the Nick show is that it's made by people who grew up playing the 8 and 16 bit stuff and intentionally pays tribute to the past. The 4Kids show was made by middle-age adults who simply modeled the video games in the episodes after whatever was a current trend in the gaming world. Those guys didn't necessarily grow up loving and playing the stuff, but simply were trying to appeal to what modern day kids would be familiar with. All the video game references I've seen in the Nick show are clearly a product of the stuff the creators loved in the their youth.

Anyway, I'll just post these Princess pics here since our threads should be merged sometime in the near future:

Next time you should make the thread as soon as you see something thread worthy and provide something small, like a link, and then put the screen shots in after, to make sure your the first to have a thread about the subject ;)

Eh, what can I say... I like to be thorough. Truth be told, I just assumed somebody had already made a thread about it since I had already been playing the game for about an hour. Eventually I just figured I'd put one up myself.

I'd never survive as a news reporter in the instant-social-media age.

This game isn't 8-bit. It kinda bothers me when people see pixel art and say 8-bit. Pet peeve.

Oh man, this game is awesome. I hope what we get on 3DS is akin to this. An e-shop title with 16 bit graphics would be great. I love how it changed styles each time, how fun.

It's not you. It seems like the levels are randomly generated and some of the gaps are generated exactly as long as he can jump.

From lousy ju8mping in the 2nd level to horrible hit detection the 3rd, I'm surprised Adam was able to finish for the screen caps.

I think that's a problem on your end. I was able to beat each level in one go...

Cure
04-26-2013, 09:27 PM
No, Jester's right. Like what I said about the level generation and the hit detection IS bad. You can be well underneath Shredder and still get hit. It's doable, just bad on a technical level.

However, it's a flash game. Things like this should be expected.

Indeed. I suppose "8-bit inspired" would be the more accurate designation. :tcool:

Oh, yeah, I'm just skilled like that. :twink:

Donny never did find the princess he was looking for, but he still got the girl he wanted!

I certainly wouldn't mind seeing this idea expanded upon. I was hoping we might see some more "save the princess" game styles homages like Ghouls n' Goblins, Battletoads, Prince of Persia, etc.
