First in a series of fighting games based on the cult characters from the syndicated animated TV series. The Turtles were four normal turtles who were doused with radioactive goo and mutated into the lovable superheroes we know. With the help of their martial-arts sensei Shredder the Rat and the occasional aid of TV news anchorwoman April O'Neil, the Turtles fight to rid the streets of the influence of the evil Shredder and his minions.

In TNMT - The Hyperstone Heist, released in Japan under the title The Return of Shredder - the Turtles must foil a plot by Shredder to defeat his foes with the aid of the mysterious Hyperstone. If you've seen one Turtles game, then you've seen them all - they're pretty much the same platform fighter with some variation in background graphics and the occasional new villian or two.
