Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan is a Game Boy game made by Konami and released in 1990. Like other games in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, it is a beat-em-up, but can also be viewed as a run and gun.

I first saw this game in a hint book and thought it was pretty cool looking, but never played it at the time. 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.

Review

  • Overall: 2/10
  • Best Version: Game Boy

Good

  • The graphics are large, well-drawn, and thematic to the series.

Bad

  • There are several non-TMNT-related monsters in the game that could have easily been replaced by those from the series.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 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.

Ugly

  • 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.
