      I would also add a ruling against trapping an ordinary enemy, NOT a boss, behind an object and hitting an endless stream of boomerangs for 1 point each. Still leeching and there's no in game timer so can be done indefinitely.

      Just a thought

        A good thought. As mentioned by Robert, this tactic is also not allowed.

            This game has caused me a few headaches back in the day. When it first came out the only way to avoid kids hogging the game during the Sunday lock in sessions at Timezone was to make them form a line behind each turtle, rack up 6 lives each and when they ran out of lives send them to the back of the line. Next 4 players stepped up. Repeat the process for 3 hours. One staff member assigned to Turtles. The other one handled everything else. I spent a lot of time on Sundays working at the bloody TMNT machine for the first month or 2 after it was released.

            Cowabunga? More like Cowadunga after a while

              I didn't know this game was so popular. I was not in the arcades at this time of release in 1989. I was a golden duck from the golden era ...

              I still like TMNT. I love pizza, they love pizza, and the game is something very different to play. No wonder you couldn't forget the experience. Which is the best turtle to pick?

                I was mainly there for work by the time TMNT came out. It was during the time that the cartoon was really popular as well. We ended up having a turtles themed lock in. Thankfully the photos of me dressed in the dodgy home made Donatello costume are lost in time. Not a pretty sight and a story for another day.

                I always picked Donatello but I don't know if one character is better than the rest

                  Tried a different turtle. Supposedly there ARE differences between characters. I never knew that before.

                    I'm sure this is a great game but I never got into it back in the day. At the time the TMNT cartoon was a young kids TV show and being a teenager at the time I was disinterested in it based on that. It also seemed to be a huge coin muncher, basically a poker machine for kids!

                      My kids loved watching the Ninja Turtles cartoons. I even enjoyed the show. But they were more into playing Bubble Bobble doubles than TMNT the video game. But hey, this game plays OK.

                        This was an extremely popular game at my local bowling alley during my short time frequenting the arcade there from around 90-95. Whilst more of a multiplayer game, I loved beat 'em ups as a kid so it still has some nostalgia value. That said, I loved the "Last Ninja" series on C64 even more and so would gently poke fun at the turtles around friends for not being real ninjas.

                          Wow. I've seen beat up difficult but this one is overcoming.

                          Good game. I'm a joke on TMNT Haha

                              What a joy this game is. I can hardly wait to play this again!!!!!! I've only played a few games so far, but can't figure out how to play any other turtle than whatever the turtle I played with was. Anyway, here's a starter score.
