Day 16: Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist

If you ask about a good Turtles game, you will immediately get the answer "Turtles in Time on the Super Nintendo!" to get. And rightly so. However, I was a huge fan of the four mutated turtles, but also a Sega child, which is why I only caught up with the SNES classic many years later and instead played The Hyperstone Heist.

I used to tell myself that Fighting toad game on the Mega Drive was at least as good as Turtles in Time, but back then I was maybe a little deluded and stupid. Therefore: After several years I am playing Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist again in this format.

That's why I'm already blown away with the intro video and sit in front of the screen with a probably very stupid-looking, nostalgic-dreamy grin while the title song of the TV series sung by Frank Zander is playing in my head. The tin will fly away from you!

But even after the game has started, I have a really good time. Just like Turtles in Time and the previous games, The Hyperstone Heist is a brawler. So I move from left to right through the level and knock all sorts of foot soldiers and other minions from Shredder and Krang. The two ass violins kidnapped the Statue of Liberty and ... wait a minute! Isn't that also the story hook in Turtles in Time?

Absolutely correct, Konami was re-using some of the assets from the game for The Hyperstone Heist. The story is very similar, some levels are almost the same and even bosses were taken over one-to-one. In the mega-drive game you are not sent through time, you should simply snatch the eponymous Hyperstone from Shredder.

However, I also notice that the levels are a little too long in contrast to Turtles in Time. In Stage 4 it is also noticeable that the developers of the Hyperstone Heist were nowhere near as creative as they were with the Super Nintendo game. There is more variety there due to the time travel theme alone, but also more different bosses want to be beaten up.

In Stage 4 of The Hyperstone Heist, on the other hand, the three bosses from the previous stages are simply recycled before one rather lengthy fight against Baxter Stockman begins. That was the whole level and after that it is already towards the end of the game. Compared to Turtles in Time, the Mega-Drive title clearly lacks highlights. In the past I didn't notice this, of course, due to the lack of a comparison, but today I'm a little bit disappointed.

Sure, The Hyperstone Heist is not the flawless classic from my memory, but the Footclan-Kloppe is still in a good mood. The title may have its quirks, which I now notice, but as a trash fan I enjoy the fact that Meister Tatsu - known to be a human - simply explodes when you defeat him.

When you play the best game If you want to play with the ninja turtles, you should of course use Turtles in Time on the Super Nintendo, but if you still can't get enough of the green fighters or - like me - loves the brawler genre, you will also go to The Hyperstone He's having a good time. I definitely had it with this format and thank you for watching 16 days 16 bit.
