Netflix Games review: TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge brings nostalgia

Kowabunga! One of the finest, most nostalgic games out there – for a generation – is the Turtles. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as they are known in full, are known from beat ’em up games and we love that. Because beat ’em up games, when they’re good, have the ability to make you feel like you’re gliding through the enemies and levels, like it’s a Sonic game. Does Shredder’s Revenge do that too? We can say a resounding ‘yes’ to that.

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge

It takes some getting used to, because many Turtle games are perfect to play with two people and that obviously does not apply to this game, you would think. However, you are wrong there. You can play it alone or online with others. However you approach it, that feeling of nostalgia soon sets in when you see the purple and black dressed foot soldiers pass by, or a pizza box lying around somewhere: delicious. The game on mobile is the same as on PC, so you actually just play a full game, but on your smartphone (so wherever and whenever you want). Clearly a lot of love has gone into it.

This is also evident from information from the developer: “There are always a lot of things we want to put into a game, especially with a dream franchise like TMNT. You’ll want to play with every action figure, vehicle, or create new beat-’em-up tricks! But we have to be disciplined and make a game that can eventually come true. We had a lot of ideas that we wanted to put into the game, and who knows, we might still do it!”

Nice Turtle game

The levels in this game are very well put together and the game is very rich in different types of enemies. Also our turtle heroes look good even on the small phone screen. Add to that the fact that there is a wonderful soundtrack that puts you in the action and gives you a touch of nostalgia and you understand: this game is definitely recommended, if that is not already clear. The advantage of this game compared to previous games (to which it regularly winks) is that you can move a little more freely. So you are not stuck so that you see your Turtle die again, you can still jump away quite easily.

In addition, the game has a good learning curve: the enemies do indeed gradually become heavier, which challenges you. Unfortunately there are only 16 levels, so this game won’t keep you busy for 100 hours (although if you keep playing it with others, it will), but it’s great to descend into the sewers again or get on the subway with Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. The game offers a completely different gaming experience for each Turtle: Donatello who pulls out a Game Boy and Mikey who is always a comedy movie: it’s nice to see the heroes in their half shell again.
