One of the unique features of the SNES version was the different turbo speeds. At the highest setting, this game was faster than street fighter II turbo at the highest setting.

 

Endings (NES)

 The

The endings on the NES version are basically the same for all four of the turtles. The only difference is the portrait of the turtle which you used to beat the game. In the ending the winning turtle accuses Shredder of being up to one of his lousy tricks. Shredder says you have not seen the last of him, he then gets up and runs off screen. Splinter comes floating into the screen, drops down in front of the turtle and says "You have performed well my sons. Now let us celebrate our victory."

Critical Reception

Electronic Gaming Monthly gave the SNES version review scores of 9,8,9 and 9 out of ten.   Ed Semrad wrote, "This has got to be one of the best fighting games next to Street Fighter 2, (and in some cases better than SF2).   The voices are crisp and clear, plus the control is absolutely wonderful!   Another factor that I truly like is the story mode set up with dialog boxes unraveling the whole plot!   There are plenty of combos that will get you going!   Another great hit from the pros at Konami".
