The Co-op Game of Champions
The past has given us plenty of fun and frustrating co-op games: Contra, Battletoads, Super Mario Brothers. Time has also given us some pretty interesting TMNT games – like the impossible one for the NES. Put those together, with a little less frustration, and you have a co-op game for the ages.
The cooperative play in Turtles in Time is seamless; players can fight alongside one another without attacking each other, but the game does require a bit a strategy. Health – or pizza- is limited, as are special attack hazards located in particular levels. Also, there are quite a few levels that throw out two bosses at the same time. It’s times like these that it helps to have your best friend ready to punch out a mutated warthog.
Technodrome: The Final Shell Shock
After 25 years of awesome, this game is still one of the best ways to kill an afternoon. (Or an hour…depending on how good your teamwork is!) While there are certainly other amazing games out there, TMNT IV: Turtles in Time is the perfect game for endless amounts of beat’em up fun. In fact, I think it’s about time I picked it up for another play-through. So what do you all think? What’s your favorite co-op game? Have you picked up Turtles in Time lately?
