For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In fact, I think Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michaelangelo are part of why I love pizza so much – especially Mikey, that nunchuck-loving turtle is a sucker for pepperoni pizza, a quality I share.
So, it’s unsurprising that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, as not only do I get to enjoy one adventure with my favourite butt-kicking turtles, but 13 of them. Yes, this bundle of games features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES and arcade), TMNTII: The Arcade Game, TMNT: Fall of the Footclan, TMNT: Turtles in Time, TMNTIII: The Manhattan Project, and more. It’s also worth noting that these games originate from various platforms, such as arcade, SNES, NES, Sega Genesis, and Game Boy.
As The Cowabunga Collection features so many titles, I’m not going to break down each individual game, otherwise, I’d be here until Christmas. Instead, I intend to give an overview and individual mentions where necessary. However, I can say straight off the bat that each game is a treat. There’s not a single dud in sight.
