Upbeat tunes by Tee Lopes and other artists! The original TMNT theme song warbled by Faith No More frontman, Mike Patton! The original voices from the animated series! What more do you want!?
At once recalling the arcade glory days of the Konami TMNT games, developer Tribute Games has done a bang-up job here, with impeccable animation, colourful environments, and an all-encompassing, vibrant energy infused into the game's pixel art style. Simply marvellous.
Riding a line between button-bashing immediacy and move-based mastery, Shredder's Revenge embraces players of all skill levels, with impeccable, simple controls, and gameplay that is both pure and totally intuitive.
Story Mode is excellent, offering a nice, palatable way to play all 15 levels with extra objectives and collectibles, character levelling, and more. Arcade Mode, meanwhile, offers the raw and unadulterated arcade experience. And six-player local/online co-op with crossplay?! You're really spoiling us.
A solid list that covers all of the relevant territory, whether it's Story Mode collectibles and milestones, co-op play, or attempts at completing Arcade Mode. I'm not sure I fancy completing Arcade Mode at the hardest 'Gnarly' difficulty, though.
