TMNT 2 - Options mode

Hack of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game

Description:

Here is a hack that adds an options mode for the title screen with several functions.

v1.13 changes:

  • Changed “ULTRA” to “KONAMI” at the credits sequence.
  • Fixed the ending sequence bg graphics when using the patch along with the bugfix & polish hack (compatibility).

v1.12 changes:

  • Changed the Ultra logo to the Konami logo on the title screen.
  • Added “Mania” difficulty setting.
  • Added “Fighting” setting. Old = original game, New = rebalanced hp for enemies. Set “new” as default.
  • Made it so enemies don’t have invincibility frames when attacked when using the “new” fighting setting.
  • The special attack does 50% more damage in the “new” fighting setting.
  • Redesigned the options screen.
  • Moved the “nesrocks.com 2021″ credit into the options screen.
  • Difficulty settings now also affect the enemies’ aggressiveness.
  • Difficulty settings now also affect enemies’ starting hp if using “new” fighting mode.
  • Improved how scrolling works. Standing on the right side of the screen causes an auto scroll to take place. The point at which a manual scroll happens has been moved slightly to the left for a better experience. So now the screen is divided into 3 areas, as far as scrolling is concerned, instead of the original 2. No scroll, manual scroll and auto scroll. Originally it was just no scroll and manual scroll.
  • Added compatibility to the “TMNT II - The Arcade Game Revamped” and to the “TMNT2 - Bugfix & Polish” hacks. First apply the revamped patch, then the bugfix patch, and then the options mode patch.

v1.0 changes:

  • title screen and options menus can be controlled with the original select button, but also with Up/Down.
  • title screen and options menus can be confirmed with the original start button but also the A button.
  • options mode with sound test for all the music in the game.
  • options mode for selecting number of lives (0-9).
  • options mode for selecting number of continues (0-9).
  • options mode for selecting the difficulty mode.

Normal = original game. Hard = you take double damage from all sources. Easy = you take half damage from all sources, to a minimum of 1 damage.

Hunga for another Cowabunga with this hack!

Reviewed By: eskayelle on 15 Jun 2021

There’s a certain caliber of romhack you come to expect from Nesrocks, and with TMNT 2 - Options mode, he delivers yet again. The options make the game feature rich, while the new fighting style provides another layer to the game, tagging on that much more replay value.

While I’d have loved Konami to have converted this classic to a 16-bit format back in the day, this hack breathes some fresh new life into the NES game and makes you want to pick it up one more time…

Version 1.13 Recommended - Yes
