In the first TMNT game on the GameBoy you must fight your way through hordes of Shredder and Krang's foot soldiers from the streets of New York, to the center of the Technodrome in order to finally send the evil forces of the Krang back to Dimension X. You have all for Turtles at your disposal but if you lose all your health the Turtle you have selected will be captured and will be unusable until you complete your mission.
The game takes place over 5 stages with each stage having between two and three sub-stages. Each stage concludes with a boss fight against one of the Turtle's arch-enemies, culminating with a battle in the Technodrome.
The game was released as 'Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan' in the UK.
