TMNT (NES) - ROM documentation project.
« on: October 01, 2010, 02:43:15 pm »
Hello everyone! I'm going to be studying, reversing, and documenting the (US) ROM for the game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES. This page will be for collecting all of my findings. Any ideas/criticism/help is certainly welcome, as always.  :beer:

Stay tuned!!!

To get you started, here's a few ram locations:  $73 - sub weapon type.  Note that you can add any value and have other game sprites that hurt enemies.  The best is 80 during the Rocksteady fight to see Rocksteady Vs. Rocksteady.  There's one entry for each turtle.

$77 - health of turtles.
$A8 - Ammo remaining for current subweapon.
$67 - Current Turtle

Should be enough to get somewhere, though I think Data Crystal may have already mentioned these.

I always thought this was an amazing game, I played it a great deal when I was young. My only real request is: I would like to know what happens when you hit a magnet late in the game, because many times my game simply froze when this happened!

Actually offhand, I'm pretty sure every time I touched a magnet the game froze, but I can't be sure. I did not make it that far many times (damn you water level with the bombs!) and my memories not so great in my old age.
