Delivering another (critical) blow of nostalgia to many (including me), Ubisoft released the Xbox 360 launch trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled, set to pop out tomorrow, August 5th. I’m sure this game will bring back memories for many, so I’ll share a few of mine.
I remember getting the game as a Christmas present for my Super Nintendo, 17 years ago. Ecstatic, I placed the game in, choose Donatello and proceeded to beat the stuffing out of every foot soldier I encountered for the rest of that day. However, what my child-self didn’t expect was the difficulty of the game. I got so many Game Overs just trying to beat B.C. 2500000000: Prehistoric Turtlesaurus that I was on the verge of destroying things. The hit-and-run dinosaurs and Stone Soldiers didn’t make it easier, and the boss of that level made my playthrough hell. That punk destroyed every tactic I used and shredded my life to bits in only a few hits. Nonetheless, I felt awesome when I finally beat him weeks later. After him, I thought I could beat the game.
Then I proceeded to the next level and got slaughtered by Frisbee throwing Foot Soldiers. Fun times.
