Those of us who are old enough to remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back in the 1980s will most likely remember, with fondness, the classic Konami arcade game of the same name. Now, in 2009, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Arcade Attack aims to bring back those long-forgotten heydays of smashing action buttons and waggling joysticks.

Exclusively on the Nintendo DS, Arcade Attack is merely a homage in its gameplay only, as the game has its own unique twists and storyline to make it a great game in its own right. With retro-style side-scrolling action, your job is to direct one of the Turtles and lead them through mean streets, nasty sewers and menacing technological hideouts to topple the Shredder and his evil henchmen.

As you progress through the levels, you can take advantage of a brand new combination system, which lets you string moves together in order to make the hardest foes turn to jelly. As well as signature moves for each Turtle, you can uppercut your enemies and perform a classic roundhouse kick to take your adversaries down.

The best part about the arcade classic was the ability to pair up with friends and face the Shredder together. Arcade Attack lets you engage in a co-operative mode via local wireless play, which can make the road to victory much sweeter. Failing that, you can enlist the help of a computer-controlled Turtle to aid in your assault as well.
