As many people know the NES Ninja Turtles game was arguably one of the most difficult video games ever created. While a majority of NES titles from the 80’s were extremely difficult to complete the Ninja Turtles game from 1989 arguably took the cake. As popular as the TMNT series was back in the 80’s and early 90’s some were probably surprised that Konami never made a SNES version of the Ninja Turtles ’89 game. But on the other hand Konami did give us TMNT: Turtles in Time back in the early 90’s which was way better than the Ninja Turtles game from 1989.
Aside from its high level of difficulty the NES Ninja Turtles game was a title that was not too memorable. A SNES version of the Ninja Turtles ’89 game would not have been much of an attraction especially considering what type of games appeared on the SNES back in the early 90’s. Titles such as Super Mario World, Mega Man X, F-Zero and others were games that were big attraction for the SNES also beat em up titles along with platforms and run and gunners were all popular in the early 90’s.
