there were also unused sprites of Tiffany.

Wow they’re so cute. All the sprites are. Thanks for sharing.

Sumac 07-07-2022 10:44 AM

I wonder why they've removed Tiffany flirting with Bebop.
Quite a funny moment and gives Bebop more character, in a weird way.

Posted by YannickBelzil on the SR and Tribute discords last month:

“Nickelodeon wanted to change it and I honestly think it was a good call because it didn't "tie" into anything. You don't see Tiffany ever again but Vernon sort of eases you into the game and out of it at the end, so it was better to have him in there.
Carrying Vernon away is funnier too I think”

“It's funnier to have Vernon being a damsel in distress but it was also more important because he appears in the intro and the outro of the game as well. It sort of carries the initial story better than Tiffany, who was just meant to appear in the first level.”

Also Tiffany was a lesser known character who you barely see much off, She was mostly just seen flirting with Burn.

That's pretty accurate.

RaphaelinSTL 07-13-2022 10:06 AM

Over a million copies sold! Fantastic.

This game deserves all its rave success, and I can only see more good things to come out of this.

LeotheLateBloomer 07-13-2022 10:44 AM

Yeah, I figured it would sell that well though I'm curious to see how The Cowabunga Collection will sell in comparison. Also would like to know how popular this game is on Game Pass with it being six players, online and all.

Interestingly, the NES game is said to have sold over 4 million copies. Not bad for a game considered the "black sheep" in comparison to the sequels.

CyberCubed 07-13-2022 11:22 AM

People are buying the game because it's cheap also, only $25 so it's an easy sell. I'm glad they didn't make it $40-$50 because that would have been too much for most people.

LeotheLateBloomer 07-13-2022 11:49 AM

Shoot, they'd have to give us more levels and extra content for them to charge us $40.:lol:

AquaParade 07-13-2022 12:10 PM

Yeah, that's a huge success, no way around it.

Original TMNT Cartoon Fan 07-13-2022 01:34 PM

I want two sequels:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Vacation in Europe

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Red Sky

CyberCubed 07-13-2022 03:25 PM

From the sounds of things the developers seem content with this being their complete work on TMNT. It sounds like they're probably going to move onto another franchise for their next game, a lot of people are hoping for X-men based on the 90's cartoon since a new season is coming next year.

I honestly don't think we'll get a full sequel to this.

Actually both do. I am surprised that I am drawn to a Red Sky look concept. We kind of got that with the handheld Dimension X Rumble when Beserko had Bebop, Rocksteady, and Foot Soldiers backing him up.

As for European Vacation, the background of the levels has a lot to work with beyond the typical sewers and Technodrome levels.

CyberCubed 07-13-2022 05:07 PM

I doubt they'll do a sequel. The developers basically said they exhausted their ideas for this and made the game they wanted. I fully expect them to move onto a different franchise.

AquaParade 07-13-2022 05:10 PM

Viacom should look at getting a AAA game done. Interest is proven.

I Crave Pizza No More 07-13-2022 09:02 PM

I have to say, my brother and I are (I think) halfway through the game (we're at episode 12), and we both find it underwhelming. The combat gets fairly repetitive, there's a lot of really terrible music, the game has been fairly glitchy, and frankly it feels like they've thrown in as many characters as possible just so they can say they did. Aside from the recurring bits about Krang's body, there's no story or coherence to where you're going, who the enemies are, etc.

It's a decent beat em up, but it's sort of dull. Just doesn't do a lot for me. Obviously there's still more game ahead for us to play, and so things might pick up, but it feels like we've more or less seen what the game has to offer. It's not bad, but it doesn't strike me as a timeless classic or anything.

Am I the outlier, or do others also feel that it's mostly a so-so offering (even though there's clearly a lot of effort at fan service here)?

I would like to see them work on a successor to the Simpson Arcade game.

I don't think you're an outlier. I think your opinion is honest and well thought out.

Anarchistguy 07-14-2022 07:55 AM

Is it me or is this game's audio volume terrible with headphones? You can barely hear anything even maxed out.

AquaParade 07-14-2022 10:18 AM

Also keep in mind that this was on Game Pass, which means it sacrificed a huge chunk of sales for a fee from Microsoft. So the number of copies sold don't even tell the whole success story.

Some people underestimated this release.

TMNT is firing on almost all cylinders the last year or two. It's wild.
At this rate, the kiddies can have the cartoons and movies (rip). I'll take the comics, videogames, and figures.

Totally agree. People that normally don't come up to me about TMNT are asking me about the game and what's been up with all the collector stuff recently. It's been awesome, and people DEFINITELY underestimated this game for sure.

While I would love a sequel, I can see them doing a small batch of DLC next year and then it's over.

Same. Even though it's anecdotal, it blew my mind to hear my friends, at our recent 4th of July party, say they have also been playing the new TMNT game on PS5. None of my friends ever cared about TMNT, it's always just been my thing. We have other things in common, over that.

It was just crazy to hear and was my own anecdotal evidence that this game reached a broad audience.

No.

The idea that OG NES game is bad is a modern invention.
It is and was decent game for its time, just overshadowed by later installments.

Icebot 07-14-2022 11:47 AM

I’ve been playing this game on online multiplayer and having lots of fun with it!

Oh, I don't think that's a modern invention. When it came out, it was not at all whatever people wanted or expected. The arcade game very much was.

I do like that elements of that first game, but at the time I didn't know anyone who loved it. Anecdotal, but my guess is that most people bought the game with visions of the cartoon in mind and got something quite different.

What do you find about the combat repetitive (in terms of the beat 'em up genre?) It has more movesets for the characters than any of the classic ones, and the levels go on the right amount length that they neither feel too short or drag on. Most people also praise the music in the game.

AquaParade 07-14-2022 03:14 PM

Honestly, both versions have merit. For me, the vastly different interpretations mostly serve to compliment each other.

I love seeing something interpreted through different eyes. It keeps things fresh and exciting for me.
Of course, there's a balance to maintain in keeping true to the spirit, but the balancing act is part of the fun.

Going from Mirage to Fred Wolf to the 1990 film is the good kind of whiplash, in my mind.

That said, the general imbalance does bum me out. I'd like to see the spirit of the comics represented better in other mediums. I do have a preference for that side of TMNT and I do think it's the best. I don't need a 1:1 adaption, and I can even get on with IDW"s resurrection plot, as long as it feels right, which is, of course, nebulous and open to interpretation.

TLDR: I prefer Mirage-flavored TMNT, but the wildly different interpretations are what keep things interesting.

The problem back then was the lack of a save system and some of the levels have cheap enemy placement (or like most NES games, you walk slightly to the left of a screen and an enemy pops out of nowhere taking out your lives).

Thankfully with the upcoming collection this will be fixed. The game will have save/suspend points, as well as a rewind feature to undo some cheap hits/deaths from enemies. So TMNT 1 will probably have a new appreciation from fans when the collection comes out. It really is a good game. I beat it on NES many times.

Having those save states are gonna help passing the Dam level from the first game.

Dpooly84 07-14-2022 05:50 PM

Well I just bit the bullet, I ordered the radical edition for switch. I'll probably still pick up a physical copy on Playstation though. Anyone else getting the radical edition?

Why do people insist the Dam level is hard? It's annoying, but it isn't hard. There's way, way worse sh*t in that game. Like, pretty much Everything After The Dam.

for me it was the low ceiling/sewer gap jumps.

Yeah I lost more Turtles to that bullsh*t than I did to the enemies.

I'm gonna abuse the hell out of that Rewind feature on the collection. Gonna finally "beat" TMNT1 just to say I did and then never touch it again.

Andrew NDB 07-14-2022 06:13 PM

The first TMNT game is just hard in general and rather unforgiving. I didn't beat it until I was maybe 18, and had it on ROM/emulator where I could save/restore as need be to stay alive.

IMJ 07-14-2022 06:47 PM

By the time I get my copy from LRG, nobody is going to be playing this game anymore... :lol:

Sumac 07-14-2022 07:05 PM

The hardest thing in Dam level is the underwater section, since its different from anything else.

After that, its just a matter of finding right "dungeons" to progress through the levels 3 and 4.

That is the only way I could beat it. I believe that I was 20 between college semesters using it. The other generation one and two games were beatable at the age we were without loop holes and felt like conquering a mountain but no need to use a get around.

The villains were much lamer too from the random enemies to the lack of villains from the cartoon and other medias.

lonewarrior20 07-14-2022 07:13 PM

gotta admit, it had a good soundtrack.
