Anybody played those expensive homebrew games? There is one for each turtles and I think it was made as an hack of the Toxic Crusaders on NES. They are made by a guy named Pacnsacdave.

I like how only the Turtles games are for sale and they're 40 bucks each. I'll pass.

F**k that guy. I'd download & play the games but I'm sure as sh*t not paying for a bunch of sloppy hacks.

Rescue Palooza FTW!

Well if you go on his Etsy page you can see what are the others he's selling.

I bought Batman: Shadows of Gotham from him. It's an hack of Shadow of the Ninja.

I'm interested in those Turtles games but I want a real review from someone who bought some.

After looking at his page, he's selling all of the games you can download direct from his website (I assume for free) so he's shooting himself in the foot on that one. Also, $50 bucks for the game AND the case?

Woah.... yeah. Um. The cartridge art is probably the coolest thing about them, although I hope he at least drew it himself or paid to have it done.

The hacks themselves look mediocre and hodge-podgy. The scale of the Turtles vs. the Foot Soldiers (and everything else) is bad.

If these were freeware downloads, I'd be all over em' though. Meanwhile, I'll content myself with the Rescue Palooza and the best the OpenBOR community has to offer!

Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure I've seen the cartridge art floating around online well before this thing came about.

There are a few you can download free, but the TMNT ones aren't free.

Looks too unappealing to me with the mismatching sprite artwork seemingly changing from FW, to 2k3 to movie based designs, and the sprites scale looks off. Not a fan of the cover artwork either.

I can see the novelty of buying hacks on cartridges to play them "for real", but this ain't it, at least not for me.

The ones on his actual site are free but as soon as you go to the other link, he's selling them too.

This is interesting, but these type of games always had 2 or 4 player coop, kind of weird having games for each turtle.

Yeah it would have been better to get Co-op again. I'm a sucker for co-op beat'em up.

It pains me to see cash-in hacks like this getting publicity:

Heck, the cartridge cover art is probably the best looking part of those games and eve that's lifted from Deviantart... probably without permission.

Too bad the average internet personalities doesn't have the faintest interest in getting acquainted with the OpenBOR or Mugen communities. That's where the real artists and visionaries are creating stuff, like the TMNT projects by Nelson and GaBoTiCo. And I actually like the overall tone of the LJN Defender, but somebody needs to introduce him to the better options.

Yeah I bought the Donny one and it's pretty much ass. I think it's Toxic Crusaders or something. I haven't the attention span to even finish one level. But hey they remembered Bellybomb!

I honestly don't get why this is getting so much hate. They seem like cool little games that the creator can make a profit with it. The price is extreme, though.

I have nothing against people who decide to spend the money on something they want to own, but I think most people will do so out of ignorance that better options exist. And, of course, maybe they just want the nostalgic thrill of playing it on a cartridge again.

But I am bothered if the Rom hacker decided to sell the games using fan art that they didn't get. I sent the original artist a message on Deviantart a while back, so at least he has the opportunity to contact Etsy or whatever.

Speaking as someone who actually owns one (see above), my gripe is they used a terrible game to base it on. I repressed memories of the Toxic Crusaders game but now that I play this (and tracked down the OG on RoM), I remember being very, very disgusted with it.

It just boggles my mind that a fan makes an homage to vintage Konami games and yet uses Toxic Crusaders as his gameplay foundation. It's like taking a Nissan chassis and covering it with Gran Torino body.
