Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (T.M.N.T. トーナメントファイターズ), known as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles: Tournament Fighters in Europe, is a 1993 fighting game developed and published by Konami. It is a fighting game mostly based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series rather than the popular television series. A game of the same name was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Super Nintendo, but this game is not a port of either version.

Gameplay

The game plays like a standard Street Fighter II' inspired game. Up jumps and pressing away from an opponent will block oncoming attacks. Unlike most Street Figher II' inspired fighters, only three buttons are used; punch, kick, and taunt. Stronger punches or kicks are triggered by holding the directional pad towards the opponent while pressing the button. Combinations of buttons can be used to unleash special moves. Desperation moves are available and do massive damage but can only be used when the life bar is flashing.

Some levels feature destructable scenery which grants access to new areas of the level when destroyed. A similar feature was incorporated in Mortal Kombat 3 and it's later versions.

Modes

There are four game modes available

  • 1 Player (Arcade single player mode)
  • 2 Player (Two player vs. mode)
  • Tournament (Fight 88 battles)
  • Practice (Single player practice mode)

Characters

Most characters are featured in the comics, however Sisyphus is an original character that never appeared in the series before this game.
