Postcard Review: Heroes in a half-shell

"For those of us that live in the wonderful world of nostalgia, few things are better than the feeling of watching a Saturday morning cartoon. Especially when it involves pizza eating ninja turtles.

With modern standards of multiplayer, it can be difficult to look back at the Super Nintendo era and appreciate its simple two-player mechanics. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, originally an arcade game, was ported to the SNES in 1992 and with that port came hours of Foot Ninja thrashing.

The game was a side-scrolling beat ‘em up that focused on the different fighting styles of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, and their adventure through time to save the Statue of Liberty from the clutches of the Shredder. The game takes you from the prehistoric era to the “distant” future of 2020."

- Tom Farndon (Retro, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time)
