The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crushed the box office this weekend debuting at number one and bringing in an estimated $62 million. To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of TMNT, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon launched the official Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for Android devices. Based on the new film, the mobile game allows players to take back the streets of New York City with the most shell-tastic team ever. Playing as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello or Raphael, players will activate fierce Ninjutsu-style moves to keep the city safe.
The game features intuitive combat controls, upgrades and weapons, a Turtle Power super attack and two unique modes of play. There’s Story mode, where the Turtles learn to be the warriors they become in the movie, and Survival mode, in which players must stay alive against endless waves of enemies. Gamers will also be able to test their skills with in-game challenges and compete against their friends’ high scores. The story was written by Tom Waltz, contributing author to the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic series from IDW Publishing.
The film is a modern-day iteration of the popular franchise that has captivated audiences of all ages for decades. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save New York City and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman, written by Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec and Evan Daugherty, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is produced by Michael Bay (director and executive producer of the blockbuster Transformers franchise), Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Galen Walker, Scott Mednick and Ian Bryce, and directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans).
