TMNT II - The Arcade Game Revamped

Hack of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game

Description:

This hack changes and fixes a bunch of stuff in this game, here’s what it does:

Changed the green skin color of Michelangelo and Raphael to the ones of Leonardo and Donatello this way they have all the same skin tone to make them look more like their appearance in the arcade version.

Changed the color of Splinter’s gi from purple to red in the cutscenes that he’s in to make him look more like his appearance in the arcade version.

Gave Bebop, the Katana Foot Soldier and the Skateboarder their fixed sprites from the Japanese version.

Removed all Pizza Hut signs.

Switched the two pictures in stage 1 around to make it look more like the arcade version.

Fixed the intro text of all the stages.

Fixed the Turtle Racing poster in stage 2.

Fixed the graphic glitch on Mike’s special attack sprite.

Fixed the graphic glitch on Bebop’s defeated sprite and now it appears in its entirety.

Added the ability to perform the jump kick at any point during a jump from the Japanese version.

Added the ability where you can change direction while doing a jump kick or a special attack from the Japanese version.

Replaced the cheat codes with the ones from the Japanese version.

Also included two extra patches, one that would not change the colors and one for the Japanese version that would change the colors, switch the pictures around in stage 1, fix the Turtle Racing poster in stage 2 and fix the intro text of all the stages as well.

The 0xEd hex editor and Tile Molester were used to make this hack.

Want to thank rainponcho for helping on fixing up the game.

Nice little clean-up of a few graphical errors and dated material.

All of the sprite hiccups have been fixed, and the cheesy Pizza Hut ads (pun fully intended) have been removed.

The HP adjustment of the Foot Soldiers makes it more faithful to the Japanese version, but it also makes the game little less challenging.

Overall, a nice adjustment to the NES version of the game. Strongly recommended.

Version Final Recommended - Yes
