Game boy Advance’s TMNT
Game boy Advance has done it again! A few years ago, the gaming console has created the TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) which, quite surprisingly, became an instant hit. TMNT has been widely regarded as an old and passé game, and game developers thought that people would not play it anymore.
Again, Game boy Advance believed otherwise. In as much the same faith as they has with the Tetris and the Pokemon, Game boy Advance created the TMNT game for their consoles. Basically, it was made as the laughing stock among its critics. But, when it reached the stores and the gaming markets, the criticizing stopped when millions of buyers frenzied in the stores to get their very own TMNT Game boy Advance copies.
So, what makes the TMNT such a hit today? In order for us to have a clear understanding about this, we need first to understand the history of TMNT. In other words, we need to know how it started, and how it actually came to be the TMNT that we know and love today.
The TMNT actually started as an arcade game back in the late 1980s. Of course, the TMNT became the best turtle-based game ever (entirely because it WAS the only turtle-based game around). Back then, the TMNT was the classic beat-them-up game where you control one character and you go about from one level to another beating up hordes of enemy spawns, and , of course, beating up boss characters.
Today, the TMNT that you can play in your Game boy Advance is basically the same. The main point is still to beat out enemy guys including the bosses of each level. However, there is an added twist for the Game boy Advance TMNT of today. Basically, you can now do a variety of cool moves to finish off your enemies. And, as there are 5 main characters – including their rat master – it would mean that you have the capability to make use of many different coup de grace techniques.
Furthermore, the TMNT creation is in itself an art. Indeed, each and every scene has been painstakingly created in order to create the best fight scenes and backgrounds. The thing about the Game boy Advance which makes it especially absconded by critics is the fact that it uses a low-tech 16-bit screen resolution. Basically, this means that you cannot do much with your Game boy Advance in terms of animations, unlike its modern counterparts. However, the TMNT is a perfect fit for this antiquated screen. Despite the low resolution, you would still be able to see art perfectly.
Besides, we cannot really hate much the 16-bit technology that Game boy Advance offers the market. While it is true that there are more high-tech and high resolution games around, Game Boy offers their consoles at a much cheaper price.
Now, let us get back to the TMNT. You might be surprised to find out that the fight scenes here are actually pretty deep. In other words, you will be able to see some pretty intense fights, and, the best thing about it is that you actually control the main character itself.
If we assess the overall quality of the game, we can say with confidence that nothing comes close to the TMNT developed by the Game boy Advance.
