Official description

Cowabunga! Players take control of the turtles in a half shell and rescue reporter April O'Neil from the clutches of the evil Shredder. Battle against the Foot Ninja Clan as Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael with their trademark weapons and ninja abilities. Search through five stages and dozens of areas throughout the New York City sewers, rooftops and ultimately Shredder's Technodrome to save April. Players must scarf down some pizza to keep up their energy, as they'll need it to defeat Shredder. Turtle Power!

Editor note

This game is notable for being nothing like the arcade game of the same name. This was quite a disappointment to many fans. A version of the arcade game would follow with Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade game.

Also notable for being difficult. In particular, a long gap near then end of the game requires a jump of the maximum possible distance (pixel precise) that many players conclude is impossible until seeking outside help.
