This game is known in Japan as "Gekikame Ninja Den".

This is the first game based on the successful TMNT franchise that spawned a long-running series of games. Among Contra, Gradius, Goemon, Metal Gear and Castlevania, it's one of the most recognized series from Konami; however, is the only one that doesn't belong to them entirely.

Like all of the first wave of TMNT games, this one is mainly based upon the TV show. However, some references to the comic book are there; the turtles lair is a secret facility they found that they customize, in the show, it was mere sewer tunnels. The Shredder's suit is the one that was in the comic book and the movie, it is red and the helmet has a grid in the mouth.
