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, 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.
