The DOS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a port of the NES game. Unfortunately, it has a massive design flaw in Level 3 that makes it unbeatable without cheating.

Debug Modes

  • Q + R + P - invincibility
  • A + S + G - noclip (walk or swim through walls)

Hidden Credits

With noclip enabled, you can access a hidden area in Level 2 (the underwater portion of the dam area) which contains a secret message.

DEAN & MIKE If they rule so much, why is this port unbeatable?

"Dean & Mike" likely refer to Dean Griffiths and Mike S. Smith, graphic artists of the game.

"Ninja" was changed to "Hero". That's it.

Notably, the European version fixes the impossible gap in Level 3.
