Official Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game hits App Store

Just in time for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, an official action game has just gone live in the App Store. Players pick one of the four classic turtles, and use specific swipes and taps to lay the beat-down against Shredder's minions in a number of different ways. Tapping the screen when an enemy is about to attack launches a counter, while upward swipes send baddies into the air, and horizontal ones deliver devastating attacks.

Build up your combo multiplier but not getting hit, and once your Turtle Power meter fills up, you can call on your bros to come in and do a little damage themselves with some fast mini-games. If that sounds at all like Combo Crew (opens in new tab), that's because it's the same devs behind it. As you progress, you can upgrade your favorite turtles, get them new gear, and work on climbing the leaderboards. There's a story mode and a series of challenges to meet, if you've got the radioactive wherewithal.

It's a little snakey that they're doubling up with a $3.99 pricetag and in-app purchases, but with such a beloved franchise, I'm sure there are going to be plenty who are willing to shell out. In any case, here's the trailer for the movie if you haven't had a chance to check it out.

  • I miss the Ren & Stimpy game. Maybe I still have it on my Game Boy Color.
  • Oh. I had a little exciting moment there. A little accident if you will! Then I saw it was the movie and I got sick. Threw up a bit in my mouth.
  • The free rooftop run game isn't bad. It's more "classic" Turtles. Sent from the iMore App
  • More "classic" but modern in relation to the new series. The new show had a 2-parter that related to the 80's Turtles. On a side note I miss the game for the GameBoy - Hello "Konami-Code".
  • I guess this is the premium TMNT experience for iOS now, since TMNT: Rooftop Run is now free. Shockingly, it's only free on iOS. Google Play is still listing it for $3.99. Posted via my Galaxy Note 3 on the Android iMore App
  • Nothing related to the Mike Bay film can be called "premium" in seriousness. I can think of other words like "disappointing," "mistaken," "uncalled for," and "crudely-conceived-of." But not "premium."
  • I love Racing, Action and Strategy Games Most. In the list of them Mario Kart, Asphalt 8, IceBreaker Puzzle and Castle Storm.
