Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan is a platform shooter video game developed by Konami and published by Ultra and released on the Game Boy on 1990-08-03. Like other games in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, it is a beat 'em up, but, because you also have unlimited long-range throwing stars, it can also be viewed as a platform shooter.
I first saw this game in a hint book and thought it was pretty cool looking, but I never played it when it was popular. I first played it around 2015 and beat it in about a half hour. Had I spent money on this game I would have been pissed!
I do not own the game, but I have beaten it.
Best Version: Game Boy
— This section contains spoilers! —
- The graphics are large, well-drawn, and thematic to the series.
- The soundtrack is pretty expansive for a Game Boy title, and it fits the game nicely with various up-beat numbers including the TV show's theme song which is nice.
- There are several non-TMNT-related monsters in the game that could have easily been replaced by those from the series.
- Although each scene does have its own unique look, the game is painfully repetitive.
- The game is too short and too easy, especially since there is a built-in feature to warp directly to the final level!
- The turtles are entirely identical aside from their weapons, and, even though the weapons look different, they all function alike. Even to the point of having the same collision-detection.
- The overall game play is tedious and not fun. Most games can't easily be reduced to "reacting to stimuli by pushing buttons," but this one can.
