Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Coming Out Of Their Shells And Into Your Phones

Today Nickelodeon launches Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, the network’s first worldwide mobile app, available in more than 150 countries and eight languages. Users can join Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo in the runner ninja combat game, as they fight their way across the rooftops of New York in an attempt to save the city from the invading Kraang and ultimate destruction. Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is available today for £1.49.

The game allows players to assume the role of their favourite Turtle as they outrun the Kraang’s tractor beam, battling enemies with Ninjutsu combat along the way. As enemies are defeated, players earn coins that can be redeemed for awesome power ups, weapons and gear. Players also need to collect energy orbs to fill the Energy Meter and keep the Kraang away. Once the Energy Meter is filled, players enter “Turtle Time” – a special combat mode where game play is zoomed in and slowed down, and players must tap in rapid succession, striking multiple enemies simultaneously in a thrilling fight sequence to increase coin collection. The app features full 3D characters and environments based on the CG-animated series

Players can visit a Turtle Lair to unlock characters, purchase power ups and upgrade their Turtle’s weapons and gear. New gear influences coin collection rates, energy meter drainage and refills, builds players’ resistance to certain obstacles and enables them to fast-forward to any section of the game already played, gaining additional coins. Enhancements can be purchased by exchanging game coins or after entering a password for an active iTunes account.

Game Features Include:
• Battle hoards of enemies from the Foot Clan, Kraang, and Dimension X
• Activate Turtle Time to fight up close in a slow-motion combat sequence
• Outfit the Turtles in exclusive Cyber and Stealth gear
• Upgrade with weapons, gadgets and boosts like the Laserbot and Turtle Saver
• Unlock and play as the Turtles’ formidable canine foe Dogpound
• Earn rewards from the pizza time mini-game
• Epic Boss Battles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Runwill be translated into eight languages, English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish (Latin America) and Spanish (Spain).

Funnier and “ninja-ier” than ever before, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on four mutant turtles – Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo – trained in the art of ninjutsu by their mutant rat sensei, Master Splinter, who teaches the Turtles to battle evil from the New York City sewers. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles airs Saturdays at 9:30 am on Nickelodeon.
