Authentic adventure

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is the new adaptation of a series born out of the “indie comics” field in 1984. Tribute Games specifically focus on the first aired animated series from 1987 that ran until 1996 for a total of 10 seasons. So, Canadian studios are taking the colorful universe, aesthetics, tone and designs of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Scale Knights and turning it into a video game. One thing is for sure… The artists responsible for this project are unconditional fans of anime and that’s how we feel from the very first minutes.

Shredder’s revenge begins with Public cult cover imagined by Faith No More singer Mike Patton In English and in English only. Fans of the French version will have to settle for VO. Despite this small disappointment, the work done on the 2D animation of the opening and musical composition is welcome. Publisher DotEmu also provided the official English voices for the original series. So there is still no VF, but the desire to find the atmosphere of the ’90s is already there. To ensure optimal comfort, the game has been translated into French (VOSTFR).

Part of the animated series’ chronology, Beat’em All is an “official” part of the lore without locating it precisely between events. Shredder’s Revenge spotlights the iconic characters of the saga on an adventure in the heart of New York City. Over fifteen levels and about twenty bosses, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are trying to thwart the plans of Shredder and his minions, but not only that. Tribute Games hilariously kicks off a colorful world to offer fans a 100% new adventure. Thank goodness have holy marshmallow and pepperoni pizza!

Greetings in pixel art

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is all about authenticity, and it shows in every way, starting with the pixel art trend heavily inspired by the source material.

Be it combos, characters and special effects, everything is mastered to perfection. Artists pay tribute to the ’87 series as they relive the universe they loved for so many years.

The title is still in development, we’ll be careful not to make a final judgment on the technical side of the title. However, the promises made by the studios should appeal to Beat’em all fans 60 dynamic frames per second (depending on device) and 1080p resolution.

Old school work

The fun experience that Tribute Games envisions is based on the once-popular genre of music… Beat’em All. The genre has taken on new colors in recent years, particularly with Streets of Rage 4, also published by DotEmu. its a small World. however, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge differs from its model with its ultra-dynamic approach and “Team vs ALL” philosophy that stems from it. The gameplay remains firmly rooted in the past, nothing to displease us, but above all relies on rhythmic combat that is easily accessible.

Such clashes are able to seduce both fans of the license, eager to find their favorite heroes, as well as enthusiasts for combat, eager to go to battle. New York teens swing across the screen, performing a devastating series of attacks and teaming up to defeat the animals that regenerate regularly. TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge has a roster of six fighters (Leonardo, Donatello Michelangelo, Raphael, Splinter and April O’Neill) with specific attributes and skills. It’s worth noting the absence of the hockey-mask hooligans from Casey Jones, which may disappoint some.

It can be played entirely solo or with others (1 to 4 players), Shredder’s Revenge is best enjoyed in co-op mode. Arcade mode, inspired by the stations of yesteryear, and Story mode, which includes a few scattered RPGs, are available entirely online, locally or a combination of the two. He is even allowed to descend in the middle of a fight. So Tribute Games focuses on the co-op experience at the expense of multiplayer versus. There is no competitive mode currently planned.
