TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan Game Boy Review!

Game Boy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fall of the Foot Clan 1

TMNT Fall of the Foot Clan is a side-scrolling hack and slash game released on the game boy in 1990 and feels a bit like the original Splatterhouse on the PC Engine. You get to pick one of the four turtles which didn’t feel all that different. I noticed that if you were to lose all of your health, that turtle wasn’t available by getting captured so it’s basically you having four lives in order to complete the game.

The one cool thing about Fall of the Foot Clan was that the levels were readily available right off the bat for you to select from.

Now obviously this isn’t going to hold a candle to anything like Hyperstone Heist or Turtles in Time, heck even the original three TMNT games on the NES are miles ahead of Fall of the Foot Clan but let’s keep things into perspective. This is meant to be a fun game to play on the go. We’re showing this off of course on the Super Game Boy 2 which is a great way to play Gameboy games on the TV.

I found that a lot of the time you’re walking forward while having to react. Okay, is the member of the foot clan going to jump at me from the left or right side of the screen? If it comes in from the left you have to turn around and press the A button, or just stand still and press A if they come in from the right.

They do a great job in putting you into the TMNT universe. Most of the bosses are present like Shredder, Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, Even that annoying Baxter Stockman!

As you’re taking out the Foot Clan or some of those Roadkill Rodney’s, some of them will drop pizza health pickups from a slice or an extra large ZA or even the first ever edible pizza box. I’m not making this up, this is straight up from the manual!

What else can really be said for TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan it’s a great one on the go, it’s fairly short in length. The bosses are large and at least accurate and sometimes you just want something that’s easy to pick up and go in 2022. Not every game needs to have complex spell abilities or grinding systems that make you come back for more.

I think TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan is a great pickup for anyone who’s a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or loves hack and slash 2D beat em ups. It also could be had for about $10 or so for a loose copy.
