Added DiffLines:

* AdaptedOut: Even though the Technodrome is in this game (as a boss even), Krang is nowhere to be found despite his status as a series staple.


Added DiffLines:

* BiggerOnTheInside: You actually ''fight the Technodrome as a boss'' in this game and enter it upon defeat. It's scaled down to fit on the screen but it serves as the final area of the game which is much, much bigger.

* NonStandardGameOver: If you fail to diffuse the bombs in the underwater portion of Area 2, the bombs explode, causing an instant game over, regardless of how many turtles were remaining.

LP'ed [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/TMNT/ here]] by ProtonJon, of {{Kaizo Mario World}} [=LPing=] fame, in honor of the game's then-recent re-release on UsefulNotes/{{Virtual Console}} (speaking of the VC release, it's 600 Wii points, instead of the usual 500 for an NES game, due to licensing issues; and said licensing expired, causing the game to be de-listed, although previous buyers can still re-download it).

The most infamous aspect of the game is its difficulty, ultimately making it a LoveItOrHateIt affair; you either love it because it's NintendoHard, or hate it because it's NintendoHard.

A side-scrolling {{platform game}} released in 1989 (1990 for the PAL region) for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem and 1991 for computers. As you could tell by the title, it was a video game adaptation of ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' which had become a cash cow franchise towards the end of TheEighties thanks to the hit [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 cartoon]]. While it did borrow some elements from the cartoon, such as Master Splinter being a human-turned-rat and the villainous duo of Bebop and Rocksteady, the art style was heavily influenced by [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage the comic created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird]], [[AdaptationDisplacement which a lot of people don't know said cartoon was based on, even to this very day]]. Perhaps due to brand recognition, this game was one of the best selling NES titles published by a third-party company. It also has the distinction of being the fifth game reviewed by Creator/JamesRolfe's "WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd" character, then known as the Angry Nintendo Nerd.

* NegativeContinuity: Though the villains are defeated and Splinter is turned back into a human, this has no effect on the story of subsequent games.

* UnexpectedlyRealisticGameplay: There's a gap between two platforms that is about as wide as your character and impossible to jump across, as the ceiling is too low and you end up hitting it and falling. The solution is to simply walk over it.
