What is Ninja Turtles?
This question may seem pointless to many, but it is important to remember that the franchise has evolved enormously since its creation in 1983. So, for the youngest among us or those who have missed out on the Turtles phenomenon , here is a little reminder. Almost forty years ago, two young designers, Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, came up with the idea of drawing four turtles wearing a headband (red, not multiple colors at the time) and a weapon to differentiate them.
Gradually, they imagined the story of turtles collected by an exiled Japanese master and plagued by a powerful mutagenic agent. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license first emerged in the form of comics (American comic books) before being popularized with the general public through a cartoon, goodies , movies, etc. Thereafter, it evolved with more or less success and many despaired of being able to retouch, one day, a video game as good as Turtles in Time in 1991.
Why was Shredder’s Revenge so anticipated?

With its Arcade and Story modes and its multiplayer that can bring together up to 6 players (for 7 playable protagonists), Shredder’s Revenge offers 16 varied levels and multiplies the nods to the original work.
The panoply of moves is varied enough to have fun and the game stands out for its reinforced concrete construction (graphics, animations, music, etc.) and its dynamism. Every impact is fully felt by the player and the creators didn’t hesitate to incorporate small challenges to prolong the fun.
