The teenage mutant ninja turtles started as a cartoon series on nickelodeon a few years back. With the production o f the movie, it seems to have hit a new high. There are a lot that came with the franchise Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles (TNMT). One of this brand is the TNMT video game, mutants in Manhattan. The game features all the turtles as the players in Manhattan where they fight their enemies the foot clan. The games main platforms are Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The Microsoft windows operating system platform has widened the range of players due to its availability and accessibility.
The video game, mutants in Manhattan was developed by platinum games and the plot was written by tom waltz. It’s based on the series TNMT from nickelodeon and has maintained the original characters except April who shows up as a pop up from time to time. The mutants are in the original stories, they poses the several abilities like Donatello who is a tech genius, Michelangelo still loves pizza, Leonardo leads the team and Ralf is the muscle of the team.
The characters still have their sense of humor and Michelangelo has been given cheerleading skills and Leonardo can slow down time. A player also gets extra points for creating a combo were two or more turtles make a move together. Another interesting feature of the mutants in Manhattan is the ability to move from one turtle to another as a single player. This makes the game even more interesting because a player can get creative as they want with the characters abilities. They do what they do best, which is fighting the bad guys. They arrive in Newyork, Manhattan and find Krang and Shredder causing up trouble and they decide to stop them.
The game involves nine stages that have different missions and goals. Overall it takes four hours to complete all the tasks given in every level. There are a lot of matches that involve combat fighting. The play ground is mostly roof tops, the streets, sidewalks, way through and the mutants home the sewers of Manhattan. If a player is not careful they will fall to their deaths while trying to jump from one rooftop to another.
There have been mixed feelings about the game. For diehard fans of TNMT its is a new adventure to explore other possibilities. For hardcore gamers it may take a while to get used to the game. It’s more of an acquired taste for them. Personally, I love the franchise and I can’t wait to see what a new version of the game will bring. Despite the various reviews, TNMT: Mutants in Manhattan the game is still selling on online on a high rate. It’s also among the hottest games of this year and is on offer on several reputable online stores. Teenage mutant ninja turtles, mutants in Manhattan is here to stay and I hope that the reviews done this year will be put to considerations while doing an upgrade.
