Yeah, I thought the same but apparently they are different. I always liked Tournament Fighters as a kid. Rented it on Genesis a couple times.

I just played through The Arcade Game with my fiancťe. Way easier having two players. We beat it in like twenty-ish minutes. Iíd do pretty crappy or would need a lot of coins if I was actually playing in an arcade as we both kept dying.

Thatís be cool if they tallied up how much money you would have spent at the end of your session for any arcade games.

I always thought I rented Tournament Fighters for Genesis but maybe it actually was the NES version as it feels a lot more familiar.

I watched a couple reviews on YouTube and there's only five games that you can play with friends online. You can't play the snes version of Turtles in Time online with friends. That's a huge bummer for me.

I do think a lot of the games are probably better co-op. They throw so much at you that itís hard to beat the enemies and still have enough health for boss fights unless youíre really good.

Player some of The Hyperstone Heist tonight. Pretty fun game. Itís one Iíve never played. Made it up to stage four where it makes you beat the bosses you previously defeated and then died/ran out of continues.

The menu music is beyond awful and canít be muted. Other than that, Iím enjoying things so far. A few of these games are new to me.

The original NES game is still so hard. Iíve tried playing it a few times since having this collection and can barely make any progress in it. I think Iím worse at it now than when I had it as a kid (it was one of the few NES games we owned).

Does it still slow down and stutter when there are too many
moving objects on the screen?

I havenít encountered that yet, but on the third or fourth level I was straight up stuck with no place to go forward. Unless I have to trigger something or break a door, but I donít think itís that type of situation. There are also times where you enter or drop down into an area and you have no choice but to get hit, which is pretty cheap.

You can set it so it doesnít slow down/flicker.

So my son and I played through "Turtles in Time". When you get sent to the future it is 2020, haha. There wasn't a single mask or social distancing though.......they got it totally wrong.

My toughest spot was always in the Technodrome with a room full of floating guys who had really hard hitting ray guns. It was one of the last things you would encounter before Shredder. I got pretty good at the swimming stage, but then again I was an only child with not much of a life when I got the game.

Beat The Hyperstone Heist tonight. Had it set to easy and upped my number of lives to four and also continued to five. Managed to get through it in only two continues. Pretty good game.

Surprisingly the GameBoy games are fairly fun too but are also hard (a recurring trend with these TMNT games).

Re: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection - 2022

I bought and downloaded this today and spent a few hours with it. Mostly a good time but some frustrations, too.

Breezed through TMNT Arcade and it scratched the nostalgic itch but it reminded me how much better TMNT Turtles in Time arcade is, just in terms of game play alone. But that said, playing that back to back with TMNT IV Turtles in Time for SNES, the home console version is leaps and bounds better than the arcade version.

TMNT IV has better music and better moves than the arcade version, hand down. I can actually throw Foot Soldiers in the SNES version. In fact, I throw nearly every single one to earn extra points for extra lives. You definitely need them, because I play on hard with 5 continues and 7 lives and being rusty made me go through those, especially against Slash in Prehistoric Turtlesaurus, and he is the hardest boss of the game. The SNES version also has more variety. I like that Sewer Surfin' and Neon Night Riders are one-hit enemy bo us levels, plus the two extra levels are excellent. I prefer the Roadkill Rodneys to the ridiculous boxing robots, too.

Thing is, the SNES version is still only 2-player, so the kids and i played the arcade version as 3-player. We had fun, but it's the lesser game. I went through Turtles in Time on my own and then with the kids. I got all the way to Super Shredder in the SNES version and ran out of lives and continues while he was in the flashing stage of HP, ugh!

Online play was really choppy or really great. Maybe it's me. Anybody want to plag?

TMNT for NES is just as hard as I remember, just wow. They should have a stage seelct so i cam just play certain things and move on with my life. Looks like there are some codes, including invincibility, to try!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES, Turtles II Arcade NES, Turtles III and the Turtles IV Arcade are the only game i was into back then when they were around during the 1990s.

NES Turtles II i was not aware that it was the home version of the lesser known arcade game. Turtles IV the Arcade game is the only on that i know of and loved playing a few times at Pizza Hut.

I feel like the Super Nintendo version of Turtles in Time is easier than the arcade version. No complaints about that just something I noticed.

You can tell the arcade games were meant to eat quarters and were hard, especially if you play alone. Then again though I would say most of the games in the collection are fairly difficult. Surprisingly so really since kids probably were largely the target market.

The enhancements can be a drag. I got through the TMNT NES Dam level on the first try and didnít lose any Turtles. But no "God Mode" on this game? Or level select? Thousands of gamers will continue to never see the final level! Another "miss" for enhancements is I can't find a way to stage select for TMNT IV and select Hard Mode to get the good ending. It's one or the other, bummer.
