Shredder’s Revenge more than lives up to the legacy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games that inspired it. It’s fun, yet simple gameplay, excellent coop for up to six players online, and charming pixel-based art style will surely have 90s kids riding the wave of nostalgia all the way to its end.

And that’s honestly it on the nitpick front. Shredder’s Revenge nails the tricky balancing act needed to keep longtime brawler fans engaged in the same sessions as novices who have merely shown up for familiar Ninja Turtles fun. Its soundtrack, composed by the incredible Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania), combines modern hip-hop flourishes with upbeat ’90s MIDI melodies in a way that’s so catchy, I’ve already worn the music out as a personal rip from the game’s installation folder . And its battling environments are colorful, diverse, and unobtrusive, letting you easily differentiate between the good and bad guys amid a frantic fight.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a delightful celebration of the Heroes in a Half-Shell. More importantly, it’s simply a helluva lot of fun to play. It breaks little in the way of new ground, remaining rooted in old-school cool, but it does offer wild, satisfying combat, packed out with personality and charm. For anyone who ever jumped off a schoolyard wall — tree branch in hand — shouting “Cowabunga!”, Shredder’s Revenge is absolutely worth shelling out for.

Despite its brevity, however, this is still a tremendous labor of love that lives up to the legacy of Turtles in Time and the brawlers that came before it. Combat is fast-paced and simple yet satisfying, while new features help modernize the action without tampering with its 16-bit essence. Co-op is overly chaotic and could use some indicators to help you keep track of where you are, but playing with friends is still a blast. Rehashing a classic retro game is always a tough ask, but Shredder’s Revenge avoids the obvious pitfalls and successfully brings about a revival of everyone’s favorite mutant turtles.

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge could be mistaken for a long-lost ’90s arcade game thanks to its era-appropriate production values ​​and tight beat ’em up mechanics. It’s the sequel to Turtles in Time that was never released.

Shredder’s Revenge does rely on nostalgia for the golden age of arcade gaming for players to be completely enamored with it. Without the nostalgia goggles, it’s still a great retro beat ’em up based on its own gameplay merits, but for those who grew up with the classic Turtles, it feels like a fragment of childhood has been recreated.

This game is so mechanically satisfying, so endearingly fun, that I couldn’t wait to hop back into the familiar environments, which remind me so much of crouching around that TV as a kid all those years ago.
