approaching the actual content of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection !

Digital Eclipse, which has a track record of retro game collections, such as the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and SNK 40th Anniversary Collection in the past, has cooperated in this work. introduces the development background by Charles Murakami, a senior producer of this work.

The game menu includes games and online play, where you can choose and play your favorite work, and the museum function Kame Hide and Options. The language and screen settings can be changed from the option, but there was no setting to change the volume (confirmed in the Steam version).

In addition to in-game options, each game can also change the software change of the Japanese/overseas version and set detailed options before starting. Please note that some titles have different setting items for Japanese/overseas version.

Actual gameplay is very comfortable, such as operation and operation. You can also change the button of the controller, so you can enjoy it with your own settings. The titles such as the fighting game Tournament Fighters have a characteristic provocation button, so it may be good to put them in a position that is hard to explode. But I definitely want to do provocation.

Of course, when many characters appear to be close to the game original, there are screens of screen and frame decline, and the atmosphere as a game is reproduced perfectly. I also played Shikame Ninja Den since childhood, but I remembered various things while playing. nostalgic.

In addition, I tried my friend and online play this time, but I was able to play without a big lag. When creating a room, you can also specify a private match setting and a matching partner line. There were some open matchings at the time of writing the article, so it seems that you can easily play online.

Overcoming memories with the useful function of save everywhere!

All titles included in this work are action games. Among them, the belt scroll action works are quite difficult, and if you don’t care, the game will soon become over. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: Turtles in Time (overseas version) will bring about one-third of the physical strength in a single shot even if it is a small fish enemy attack after the middle stage…!

That’s where the rewind function is active. Pressing the button will return the time in the game to some extent, but it is very useful not only to easily proceed with the game, but also to examine powerful enemy attack patterns. Immediately after the attack, if you avoid it immediately with jumps, you can defeat it with no damage.

And the other convenient function, Save/Road anywhere is very convenient for playing at a slight timing. However, you need to be careful because the files that can save are only one game. In particular, Game Boy’s Teen Age Mutant Nin Jatartr’s 3 Turtles Crisis is a search action method that searches for friends and items in a vast map, so it feels convenient.

And the most interesting element in this work is see that can be selected on the startup screen of each game. This mode allows you to see the video you are playing through until you actually clear the game. In the video, not only can you freely fasten and rewind, but you can always change the operation character to a player in this mode. It is very attractive to be able to learn not only by watching good play, but also to be able to operate suddenly in the last boss battle.

Of course, Digital Game Guide and option settings for each game are also useful. There are many difficult games, but it’s also nice to be able to use these to raise your skills.

The museum Kame Hide is too luxurious!

Finally, I would like to introduce the museum function Kame no Hide. In the hideout, you can not only see the packages and instructions of the title included in this work, but also the development concept materials. There is also a function to display characters such as drafts, so it is a wonderful feeling as a reading material.

In addition, you can view the cover of the comic that has been released by Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles, images containing anime scenes broadcasted in Japan, and the game press release materials. The English materials will explain in Japanese what this was and what it means.

It also has a sound mode that allows you to listen to BGM of various titles, so you can enjoy the game world from various directions. Not only the fun of the game, but also the overwhelming value of this material is packed with the goodness of this work.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE COWABUNGA COLLECTION has been introduced so far. It is a gem that is suitable for the word collection, as well as a large number of masterpiece titles with many fans, as well as the NES era.

There are many games that are difficult to play now, but thanks to each function such as rewinding that will follow it, you can enjoy the attractive characters and the worldview of Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles. It is also a nice part that it is easier to play the game. I personally like various BGMs, so I am grateful that I can enjoy this.
