TMNT: Turtles in Time

Konami, 1991, 4 Player, Side-scrolling beat 'em up

We love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so much that we have the original arcade game and its sequel on the floor of 1989 Kitchen & Arcade.

Like its predecessor, Turtles in Time was available for the arcades in two and four-player versions. In the two-player versions, each player gets to choose which of the four turtles they wish to control. New features in this game include the ability to execute a power attack by hitting an enemy several times in a row, and the ability to slam Foot Soldiers into surrounding enemies.

Players guide the turtles through a series of levels. The first takes place in the streets of New York City. Later levels transport the turtles to representations of various historical eras. In each level, players face enemies from both the 1987 cartoon and the feature film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, including Foot Soldier and Stone Warriors. Bosses include the fly form of Baxter Stockman, Metalhead, Tokka and Rahzar and Leatherhead.

Our cabinet was bought from a guy who rescued it from collecting dust at his local RSL club.
