Every character, vehicle, weapon, item, and background is directly inspired by the 1987 TV show.
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include why you should take advantage of your Special Moves and why completing the side quests is important. As well as these hints and tips, we also have a beginners guide here which goes into more details on some of the tips we have below:
Use your Special Moves
Each of the playable characters in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder's Revenge has a Dodge Special move which can be extremely useful during tricky situations during episodes (to enable a Dodge Special move on the Xbox you need to press B then Y on your controller). An example of a Dodge Special move is Mikey's Liu Kang Bicycle kicks.
Level Up Easily
An easy way to farm KOs and level up quickly in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder's Revenge is to play Episode 12 - It Won't fly! and do the following trick. There are two parts with multiple big mousers (they make little mousers 4-6 on the screen at a time). Kill the little mousers and spare the big ones, and they will keep spitting out the little ones.
Learn the Moves
Keep in mind that each of the playable characters has their own unique moves, and it is well worth taking the time to get familiar with them as they will help you considerably in different situations if you know how to perform them. For example, flying attacks like the Somersault Slice work best for flying enemies, Fling Tosses are great for getting rid of enemies with just one move, and Taunting replenishes your Ninja Power bar.
Know your Enemy
All the enemies in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Shredder's Revenge have unique attack patterns along with strengths and weaknesses which you should try and learn as you progress through the game. During the early game you will be able to spam-attack your way through the enemy, but this will not do you any good in the later stages when you have groups of different enemies thrown at you seemingly all the time.
Complete Side Quests to Level Up Faster
In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder's Revenge you will earn points as you play that go towards leveling up and unlocking new moves and better stats for your character. The quickest way in which to earn these points is to complete the side quests which become available when you find the cameos that are scattered throughout the game. Take a look at our How to find all the Cameos guide to discover where they are located and what they unlock.
