There were several ports of this game. The NintendoEntertainmentSystem version featured downgraded graphics and audio, and allowed only up to two players (obviously since the NES's hardware wasn't exactly arcade quality), but it did add two new stages and swapped the second fight vs. Rocksteady and Bebop with a fight against Baxter Stockman in his fly form, making it the best port one could find of the game until the arcade version was re-released in 2007 for UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade. The computer ports varied greatly in quality, from passable to underwhelming. A direct port of the original arcade game can also be unlocked in ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus'', but with altered music and the ability to put infinite credits into the game for unlimited lives.

A 1989 BeatEmUp by {{Creator/Konami}} based on [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the adolescent humanoid shinobi terrapins]] [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird]]... more specifically, [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 the 1987 cartoon]]. As the title suggests, this game was released in the arcades, though only as ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles''. Several ports renamed it ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game'' to disambiguate it from the first console game [the {{Famicom}} version kept the original name, as its version of the previous game was [[MarketBasedTitle renamed]] ''Geki Kame Ninja Den'' (''Fierce Turtle Ninja Legend'')].

* GameLobby: The XBoxLiveArcade version works this way, requiring players to get together in a group if they wish to play together. While four-player play was part of the original game's appeal, this system makes it nearly impossible to get a four-player match going.

* StealthPun: In the bonus dojo stage in the NES version, an illustration of a tiger painted on the paper wall comes to life and attacks the players. It's a literal paper tiger!

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalBadass: One of ''the'' most badass versions of Shredder in the franchise. While the cartoons generally depicted him as something of a joke and not really all that dangerous, (especially compared to later adaptations) the final battle against Shredder in the arcade game can verge on outright ThatOneBoss.
