I played a bit of the Genesis version and had trouble pulling off moves. I kept losing, so I gave up.

Come to think of it, the first two NES games my brother got as a kid were SMB1 and TMNT when he got his NES in 1990...
It was the default bundle in Europe and helped solidify the system outside of Japan and the US

Ah, okay, that makes sense. So it was regional, as I suspected.

I tried a quick Google last night of "NES pack-in games" but gave up quickly, not wanting to sift through the endless links about the NES mini.

It has been released in 1992, well into Genesis and SNES lifespan, so naturally it was overlooked.
Which is really unfortunate since it's one of the most beautiful NES games, with awesome soundtrack and decent gameplay.

While I admit, that TIT might have better gameplay, Manhattan Project is my most favorite TMNT game.

Well, to this day is the 11th best selling NES game, and the 1st not published/created by Nintendo, and the fact that was a bundle game had a huge part in that

It's actually two extras levels plus the Stockman-Fly boss. So that's something when the original game was so short.

Thanks for refreshing my memory. It's been over ten years since I played the NES version.

It was bundled with the Nes in the UK. It's probably the best sales the Nes ever got over here.

Never owned the Nes version. I owned the Amiga version which had better graphics and sound although some stuff missing from the Nes version.
