TMNT of Rage - The Final Shell Shock & Re-Shelled

Hack of Streets of Rage 2

Description:

NOTE: The .zip file for this hack contains two .ips files: the Final Shell Shock patch being playable on all hardware and in all emulators, with the Re-Shelled add-on allowing players a better sound experience when using the Terraonion MegaSD cartridge. Be sure to first patch a copy of your SoR2 rom with the Final Shell Shock patch to begin your TMNT experience.

eskayelle’s ultimate vision comes to fruition with this final set of mods in the TMNT of Rage series.

On an alternate timeline in an alternate universe, Mr. X and the Syndicate have fallen at the hands of those radical reptiles, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Furious with his latest failure to control the city, X enlists one Oroku Saki to capture the fearsome foursome’s greatest ally, April O’Neil.

Rage in their hearts and pizza in their bellies, the turtles jump into action, dead set on putting an end to Mr. X’s tyranny once and for all… and punish the Shredder for being complicit in the Syndicate’s nefarious misdeeds as well.

A direct descendant of eskayelle’s TMNT of Rage hack and its TMNT Remix successor, this mod adds the following to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles of Rage experience:

  • A throwback to the old 90’s arcade splash screens starts off your gaming experience.
  • A six sequence ending specific to this game, the first for any SoR2 hack out there, incorporates redesigned images from the classic TMNT II and III NES games. These images also put some artistic spins on the palettes / color schemes for a bit of extra fun.
  • Those bumbling buffoons, those moronic mutants, Rocksteady and Bebop, have now joined the Syndicate! Dumber than advertised, but stronger than ever, get ready to go toe to toe with them, Bebop making his first appearance in a Genesis / Mega Drive game.
  • An updated story in attract mode complements the new ending sequence.
  • A new title screen takes greater advantage of the Genesis / Mega Drive’s palette options.
  • Thanks to Yoni, gone are road apples in favor of a nice slice! Try not to smile the first time you hear Mikey calling out “Pizza Time!” as he grabs some grub.
  • With the additional Re-Shelled patch, play the game on a Terraonion MegaSD (or with any emulator that supports MD+ functionality) to enjoy that sweet soundtrack from eskayelle’s TMNT MD+ Remix. Grab that soundtrack here!

And… those fantastic features from the previous mods in the series continue to kick shell:

  • Regardless of your region, the same tubular Final Shell Shock / Re-Shelled title screen and story intro will display.
  • SNES Turtles in Time portraits provide your starring cast on the player select screen.
  • Name sprite tiles on the player select screen call out Mike, Leo, Don, and Raph.
  • Are you used to Leo being the most well-rounded turtle? Raph being the strong one? Each reptile remains rebalanced!
  • Tired of getting your head stomped in by your “buddy”? Ti’s friendly fire patch has been applied, limiting the damage players can do to one another in story mode to throwing enemies and weapons.
  • Duplicate turtles in duel mode have alternate palettes, putting them that much closer to their ‘80s cartoon counterparts.
  • Galsia/Garcia and Donovan finally get their due! Play far enough into the game, and on the right difficulty setting, and you’ll have to contend with each of them once as a mini-boss.
  • Thanks to savok, now all players can run in all directions, as well as start a run when turning around. With the added speed, how many more air/juggle combos can you create with your favorite turtle?
  • Shiva’s on a leave of absence given his multiple failures to protect Mr. X. Backing X up this time is… the Shredder!
  • Continues remain removed to balance the lives options and allow for greater difficulty. Choose your turtle, and your lives count, wisely; you’ve only got one shot to take down the big man with the cigar.
  • SCD’s restorations from the original SoR2 remain: Garcia, Garuda, and Mosquito names; enemy knockouts counter; plus Mr. X’s cigar and cigar animation.

Check the in-game credits and the readme for so many folks whose assets, code, tutorials, or specific guidance helped make this game happen!

Cowabunga! Booyakasha! … Reaganomics!

Love this Concept, Great Hack but..

Reviewed By: Greenhawk84 on 30 Jun 2020

Hello! I love this hack, it’s a very great idea since I am a longtime SOR and TMNT beat ‘em up fan. I think this could use a little more variation in common enemies but I do not mind the turtles beating up common street thugs because they also did that. I would also enjoy to see maybe a couple more playable characters like Casey Jones and Master Splinter but that’s a high hope, not that I wouldn’t play this anyway. I think having this as just a novelty game and a “different flavor” of SOR2 is a nice way to look at it. Very fun, keep up the great work!
