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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

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 {{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).

* HardLevelsEasyBosses: The further along in the game you get, the ''easier'' the bosses get. Shredder in particular has a very predictable movement pattern and can be defeated without the player taking a single hit.

The four eponymous characters--brothers Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael--are in hot pursuit of the Foot Clan, the most dangerous criminal empire New York has ever seen. Their babe-licious human friend, Channel 6 News field reporter April O'Neil, had just been kidnapped by the Shredder, the deadly leader of the Foot. To give you an idea of how deadly he is, the instruction manual describes him as "a villain more vicious than an army of mind altered {{Bruce Lee}}s." [[CaptainObvious That's deadly]]. His plan? Brainwash April and train her in ninjitsu so she will become part of the Foot! The Turtles must save April, storm the Shredder's [[SupervillainLair Technodrome lair]], and steal his Life Transformer Gun, which can turn their beloved Master Splinter back to his original human form of Hamato Yoshi.
