Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze (360, PS3, 3DS)

TMNT_BOXTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been famous with kids since, well, I was young.  And now there is a popular new TMNT computer animated TV series on Nickelodeon.  This game is based on that series.  When Donatello picks up traces of a new super mutagen, it’s up to the four heroes in a half shell to find it before Shredder and the Kraang aliens do!  Danger of the Ooze is a single player 2-D platformer/beat em up that plays quite a bit like an old school Metroid game!  It’s available on Xbox 360, PS3, and 3DS, but reviewed on 360 here.
