THE BOUNTY BOYS ARE HERE
Welcome to the crime infested boroughs of New York, where one wrong look at
the right person can be your last. But the turtles sleep contentedly, for
they've made Manhattan a safer place for all. Especially since they've sent
Shredder to the local landfill. Or so they think. While dreams of pepperoni
pizzas dance through their heads, the turtles' worst nightmares blast into
Earth's atmosphere. Two irrtergalactic bounty hunters have been attracted
by the price that Shredder has placed on the half shell heroes' heads.
Shredder's alive and looking for payback!
Although the turtles tossed Shredder into the metal jaws of a garbage huck,
titanium battle helmet protected his maniacal mind from being mauled.
Upon awakening on a seabound garbage ship, Shredder vowed vengeance.
After floating back to land on a pile of non-biodegradable styrofoam Cups,
Shredder began training a new breed of Foot Soldier. One that is better
trained in the lethal art of Taekwondo. And one that will make the ultimate
sacrifice to defend leader. But that was only the beginning. Shredder
journeyed throughout the universe, via his Translocation Matrix Beam,
recruiting the top bounty hunters. He chose two. Tora is a ten foot, half
ton blizzard beast who, in 2000 years, has never known defeat. Journeying
from the distant ice planet of Traglodoon he has come to Earth needing only
one weapon, his devastating daws. His partner in cosmic crime is Shogun, an
inhabitant of Sector Six in the Oead Star Zone, and the mastermind behind
the Ultimate Galactic Sword. But that's not all, Folks. Shredder and his
professional punishers have again captured April O'Neil and plan to use her
as turtle bait. Fail to save this lovely journalist, and that's all she
Shredder's ten levels of terror, with a lethal leader at the end of each
one, are the deadliest the turtles have ever had to face. Even if you
survive the eight action riddled arcade arenas, you still must contend
with the two new unbeatable bounty hunter stages. But the turtles stand
ready to fight through this shell squashing mess. For Splinter has taught
these turtles to fight with the ferocity of a lion.
HOW TO PARTY TlLL YOU DROP!
The green gurus of grimefighting are hummin' the blues. They've just
learned of the evil event that awaits them. Shredder's throwing a reunion
party, with the bounty hurders as the guests of horror. Your goal is
to survive all ten levels of fatal festivities,save April and defeat
Shredder in the Technodrome. But keep your amphibian eyes peeled. There
are over 700 pain packing party monsters who'd like to use you as the

terminating as many villains as possible (for every 200 knockout punches,
you're given another life). Your energy will be drained each time you're
