From New York Sewers to the Stars

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are already well known to the general public, they have had several reruns in cinemas, television, comics and games.

If you do not know them, they are literally turtles that have mutated into humanoids.

Trained by Master Splinter, a rat who is also a mutant and serves as the boys’s father figure, Raphael, Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo eventually become New York heroes and meet the horrible villains of the Foot Clan, an evil organization that has a direct connection to Splinter T.

Shows the team and its already formed supporting characters, the game forces us to embark on a crusade against a fighter who meets other villains already known to the fans to once again try to dominate the world.


According to the traditional Beat’em up formula and referring to the turtle’s own games in the 80’s and 90’s, Shredder’s Revenge gives you brutal action at any time, without a place to rest.

The pace of the game ends as we become even more immersed in the sense of urgency of the heroes’ mission, who must compete in time to rescue New Yorkers and stop the leg clan plans.

Although the game has only 16 stages, the campaign can be completed in about two hours, we can say that everything is done in the right measures so that the fun does not turn into boring repetitions.

With a variety of enemies, the story unfolds cheerfully, with fun moments that complement the fun of the game, especially when you are with friends.

Speaking of multiplayer gameplay, the number of elements on the screen, the visual effects and the movements can be quite confusing when you are with a full team, thus mixing your character with the characters of friends, but I believe that to be the case. It will make the mechanics and the game more fun, though many may see it as a technical problem.

A soundtrack that makes everything better

Nostalgia and immersion complement the score composed by T. Lopez, guitarist Johnny Atma, rapper Mega Rani, singer Mike Patton and hip-hop band Wu-Tang Clan duo Ghostface Killah and Raekwon.

By conveying the turtle’s musical taste, the track complements the unlimited action of the game and gives us energy during matches, as well as radiating the atmosphere of a New York-like metropolis.

Neither sound effects are lagging behind, be it enemy attacks, hero skills and everything in between.

The biggest “sin” of the game is probably the lack of duplication in Brazilian Portuguese. Despite the localization of the texts in our language, the duplication will be a “cake on the cake” to deepen everything even further, not to mention attracting the attention of young players as well.

Beyond story mode

Those who love challenges and are not satisfied with just the story mode, will be able to admire the Arcade mode, which has a series of additional challenges and is designed for those who really want to overcome themselves.

In addition to increasing re-play, Arcade Mode is also perfect for practicing your skills and enhancing story mode.

Should we invest?

Against the grain of big manufacturers looking for increasingly complex and realistic games, Dotemu gives us a classic and simple experience, but with lots of concepts and fun, something hard to do these days.

Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is an amazing game to gather and entertain friends. Even in the case of a short campaign, the game knows “when to stop” and gives a laconic, colorful experience with fun dialogues, which, of course, causes a good laugh during the game.

If you want to relax from a frustrated multiplayer game or look for an experience to divert your attention, this is definitely the ideal game.

The game is now available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and Xbox Game Pass.


With the return of the much-loved 2D Pixel Art, Dotemu manages to create detailed, colorful and very attractive visuals and wallpapers.


Adopting a simple and classic style, the game captures all types of players, sometimes despite the visual confusion.


Even knowing when to stop to avoid repetition, some narrative arcs may have a better background.


Certainly one of the biggest moments of the game.


The score, visuals and gameplay really make us feel part of the Turtles team.

Overall score

While simple, we are quickly fascinated by nostalgia and ease of control.
