My first TMNT videogame

What was the first TMNT videogame you ever played, and when? I first played the first NES game at a friend's home, then the arcade game in Italy in July 1991. Then I bought Turtles in Time in December 1992.

Probably the original NES TMNT. Possibly one of those handheld Tiger electronic things.

I think mine might have been the original arcade game, though I know I also had the NES cartridge as well as one of those hand-held things.

It was either Turtles In Time or Fall Of The Foot Clan. Maybe the latter.

The arcade. For me it wasn't just the first tmnt game but the first game that went beyond mild diversions like PacMan and Donkey Kong. This game got me into gaming.

Turtles in Time, I arrived late into the video game craze (haven't left since though) so the SNES was my very first system, and TiT one of my very first games.

For me it was the first TMNT game on the NES. I got it for my birthday from my uncle.
I remember how unbelievably surprised I was, since it was a lot money for a birthday present back when I turned 11 (it was released here in the Netherlands in August 1990)

Anyway I think I probably played the first arcade game and then I got that first Speccy game... or it was the other way around. They were close together as I recall. I think the Speccy version's superior to the NES one for that first game, although the NES has a better port of the coin 'op - the Speccy did a pretty good job though.

TMNT Tournament Fighters on SNES. Found them at the flea market when I was a young kid.

The arcade game. Me, my neighbor, and his little brother would go to a pizza place and play that all weekend.


As for games I owned, can't remember what came first - either Turtles in Time or Back from the Sewer.

Actually, I've never played any other games of OT aside from those three.

Same with Sweden. Actually, August 1990 is the month when TMNT (except a few Mirage issues) first hit many European countries.

I think it might have been TMNT 1 arcade. The NES TMNT1 was good too but I was really blown away by TMNT2 tho. At the time I didn't know NES was capable of such a accurate arcade port.

My first game was TMNT 2: The Arcade Game on NES in June, 1991. In fact, this is how my interest in ninja turtles began in the first place.
