TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is one of the few high-level modern fighting games, so new players might need a few tips to get started.
The 90s are back with a new beat ’em up brawler featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That you play the old TMNT games or not, The Shredder’s Revenge is sure to bring back feelings of nostalgia, as it brings with it the charm of an entire era of games. It’s an era we’re always looking to relive, which is why we’re covering the best NES games and best snes games.
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge might not be the most complex beat ’em up ever, but the genre has been out of fashion for a while, so you might not have a experience with this type of gameplay. Fear not, because we’ve got some cheats to keep you alive and hopefully get you through the story mode and then take on the toughest challenge in the arcade mode.
Know your enemies
If you know what your enemies are going to do, it’s easy to counter their attacks. Luckily, every enemy in this game telegraphs their moves the moment they appear on screen. Some different creatures will be obvious to spot, but you should know that the different default ninja colors aren’t just for show.
Each color has a different weapon, and once you learn which is which, you can handle them easily; for example, purple ninjas only do melee attacks by default, while yellow ninjas throw projectiles. Whenever you encounter a new type of enemy, mentally note their behavior so you can deal with them in the chaos of a big fight.
Don’t let the enemies pile up
The more enemies around you, the more likely you are to get hit. It’s so simple. Whether you like to start with the toughest enemies or the weakest, it’s imperative that you keep the screen as clear as possible. When different types of enemies start attacking in unison, it can be difficult to gain a foothold and you’ll end up being knocked from pillar to pillar, so reduce their numbers before that happens.
Learn complex combos
There are plenty of fun moves in Shredder’s Revenge, but the vast majority of them won’t come naturally to you in the heat of battle. When you first start the game, a “how to play” screen will guide you through all your moves, so read it and memorize it. Taking a little longer to do bigger and better moves will help you a lot more than spamming the default attacks all the time.
Sometimes you can do with a helping hand, but there isn’t one to be found. This is because, especially in later levels, pizzas of all kinds often hide in crates or other breakable objects. If something sticks out of the background, be sure to hit it, because there could be a pizza in there, or maybe one of the many story mode collectibles.
Register your promotions
Special attacks are incredibly useful in boss fights or when enemies start overwhelming you. These big attacks will clear the screen in a flash, so you want to save them for when you need them. To build one, you must land a certain number of attacks without getting hit. It’s much easier to do towards the start of the levels, so don’t waste them early on because you might not be able to get them back later.
Upgrade multiple characters
In story mode, you can switch characters whenever you want between levels. More importantly, each character upgrades their abilities separately, which means that if you only use one character, you will only have one character strong enough for the endgame. You don’t need to go out of your way to grind, but as you progress through your path, be sure to give at least a few characters a taste of greater power.
Learn the schematics of each boss
This is a retro style game which means the bosses are super easy provided you have the patience. Most bosses have one or two attacks that make them temporarily invulnerable, but the tradeoff for this is a period when they’re wide open to attacks. When you take the time to learn what each animation means, you’ll be able to easily skip past each attack.
Execute Team Moves
If you’re playing co-op, you’ll have a lot more fun if you learn to fight in tandem. Hitting baddies separately is a lot of fun, but nothing is as satisfying as pulling off a team move. There are three of these moves and here’s how to do each one:
- Sandwich attack: Attack with both players on either side of an enemy.
- Tubular spin: One player dives on their partner and the other player presses the attack button on impact.
- Home run swing: Attack an enemy your partner has just cast.
