[Análise] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a tribute to the classic Beat ’em up game of “Ninja Turtles Game.” In fact, it re-uses the design of Time in Turtles and Manhattan Project to bring a new look to the characters, so current video games also have a great 90s experience.

Most importantly, the experience was very interesting, respecting the original meaning and allowing for very well-used new ideas. The Dotemu game is also responsible for the great Streets of Rage 4, which shows that graphics and gameplay are important, but even more fun.

With dynamic, moving gameplay and the right number of challenges, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge works great for all age groups and all types of players, from casual to hardcore.

No time bro

The story of the game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… Yes, no story. To be fair, it has the same familiar scheme in the cartoons: The Destroyer has a plan to destroy New York (poison!) And the only force that can stop it is a quartet of Leonardo, Rafael, Michelangelo and Donatello.

Well, like going back to animation, there are days in animation that end with jokes, ninja moves, good defeating evil, and pizza. Dotemu makes it clear that the goal of the game is not to take care of the player’s story, but to play the game.

After all, this is a feature of the beat’em up genre. Literally translated, it is “overflowing.” Eliminate enemies at all stages of the game, reaching the leader of each scenario before completing the entire path. That’s how it works.

So we can say that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will value your time because there is no noise. The goal is always very simple: to eliminate all bad people at all stages. You have the ability to search collections and complete tasks in each area, but they only give points to speed up XP wins for turtles. If you don’t want to get them, you will still reach the final level.

As for the special time, the game can end up to 3 hours in normal mode. There are a total of 16 stages, each of which takes an average of 6-7 minutes to complete. It is available for only Rs 124.90 at the PS Store.

What makes the game light

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is not a one-time win game because the experience can be very fast and to attract the player, the game works well and is very addictive, which allows you to play the levels again. .

Each turtle has its own style of play. Raphael is harder, so his strength is at a maximum, but his salts don’t have a good range. Michelangelo, on the other hand, is quick with jokes and quick with jokes, but he doesn’t take training seriously because he has little power.

There are different game options for each character and the movements improve as the player moves forward according to the scenarios. Although the subject of Beat’em up is simple, Dotemu noted that the tortoises set several commands that allowed them to fully master the art of ninja.

Playing the game is so addictive and uninteresting because the stages offer different designs and the enemies require special techniques. There is no point in making a general combination with a shield and an opponent, and you have to make a super attack when a big robot appears. So just crushing the buttons doesn’t solve all the problems.

For those who like the settings, you can set the difficulty level (easy, normal or heavy) and the arcade mode recreates the classic experience, where there is no checkpoint and death is constant. This is a good challenge for those who want to show agility on their fingers. However, the amount of content is very limited and does not have any other attraction that will spend more time in the game.

Pay attention to the soundtrack: a masterpiece! The sounds are reminiscent of the 90s style, embracing all genres reminiscent of rock, hip-hop and New York City. To make the most of this aspect, it is almost mandatory to play the game with a headset.

Don’t play alone!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge supports up to four players in one place or six players online. At first, Dotemu’s servers were unstable, making it a little difficult to establish compatibility, but later they became more stable. Another experience to play with friends!

When a player is allied with other partners, the game naturally increases the number of enemies on the screen, and in some cases it is very difficult to see everything that is happening. You can press the L2 key to find out which character is the main player, but an identification or automatic marker would be ideal to help with visualization.

This is not a problem, because the party between friends is held in a very good mood, and everyone laughs, because they simultaneously relinquish their powers or at the same time commit acts of war that cause severe damage to the bosses. Maybe it’s part of the fun to see nothing in the middle of so many things.

During the evaluation period, we closed the room with five players and it was a really fun experience. The difficulty is naturally reduced because Turtles are strong and help a lot of forces, but seeing a screen full of enemies flying everywhere is a great pleasure.

Unfortunately, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge suffers from some technical issues, namely bugs that slow down progress. This is not always the case, but at the end of the game, one of the leaders in the arcade mode “disappeared”. In this mode, there was no checkpoint, so everything had to be restarted from scratch. He was very happy.

Also, when players join the group, the level is reset or the characters do not appear correct until the end of the level. This situation has happened several times and can be resolved with possible spots in the future.

The problem is difficult to solve – its visualization is not clear. The pixel art of the game is not very precise, so it is difficult to find in the scripts, so it is common to miss enemies in the air. There is a bit of optical illusion by 2D mixed with the art of the game because it leads to excessive damage, silly killing and some resentment at always taking it wrong.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge: Is It Worth It?

Although it lasts for a short time, the game lasts from beginning to end and the player wants to repeat the steps to complete the challenge. Dotemu, who did not refuse to tell any troublesome story, but tried to convey a deep game, had a very interesting experience.

The flaws and technical issues are worrying, but overall, the game shows that the beat’em up genre still has a place in the market and can be a great option for those who want to gather friends to play a really fun game.
