Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles The Hyperstone Heist

My totally radical and boudacious entry for :iconfighting-games-elite: Beat'em Up Tribute featuring the Heroes in a half shell!!

Shredder shrinks the Manhattan Island with the power of the Hyperstone.Luckily April O'Neil is broadcasting the ocurrence on Channel 6 and guess who usually watch that? You're right it's the green team machine and with lots of Pizza Power they're going to defeat the Foot once more!

Back in the day Iwould play this non stop...Heck!, I still do! :D
An hardcore ninja Turtles fan as myself never let pass a chance to bring the "sneakers"(foot reference) down. Even knowing that Hyperstone heist is somewhat a clone of the Turtles in Time, only having a Mega Drive as a kid , this version was a must and it still has enough to be a great game despite it's shortcomings when compared with the Snes/arcade versions.

With amazing levels and charismatic bosses like Rocksteady, Krang and the Shredder!, I chose Leather Head. The first boss from the sewers to engage combat with the most used characters in my house. I would always pick Raphael because is my favourite and everybody else seem to prefer Michaelangelo (I guess they like to party hard)! Sometimes , someone would select Leonardo but never Donnie. Even after I said that He probably is the one with the best weapon because of the long range and such. Anyway I love all the four brothers so I would play with all of them when alone. ^_^

I got to finish this by saying that this piece is probably my best depiction of the Turtles, and I say this with shame. Having so much love for this franchise I never seemed to be able to do them any justice when drawing them. That's why I took a long time doing this rendition with all my heart.
So I hope that you all enjoy it and...


P.S. I have to give my thanks to :icongbk666: for extending my deadline in order to finish this entry! ;D

Teenage mutant Ninja Turtles were created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.

Hero turtles? Doesnt that mean Mikey is supposed to be using tonfas.
Joelchan's avatar
Well, if I recall correctly he used the nunchakus on the cartoon show up until the last couple seasons, where he used some other weapon. But anyway this is a rendition of the game and the game says hero turtles and Mikey also uses the nunchakus. :)

I know, I was more talking about the European versions. Mostly cause the word Ninja was to violent and was turned to Hero. Along with the for mentioned weapon change.
Joelchan's avatar
And you're right, because I watched the europeon version (I'm from Portugal) and it is indeed "Hero Turtles" just like the title of my copy of Hyperstone Heist for Mega Drive(sorry I said Genesis on the description, my bad, I'll change that), and the reason being the word "Ninja" is associated with violence just like you said. But as I aforementioned before, I remember Mikey using the nunchakus early on the tv show, but then he changed for another weapon, wich I don't recall the reason being.

As being a person who never lived in Europe, I cannot say to how long it took them to change the weapons. Nor why just the Nunchakus of Mikey and not, oh, I dunno, the Ninjato Swords or the Sais.
