    Cool video. I find all your game glitch videos to be quite interesting.

    I don’t really get the point…

  • July 19, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Yeah, honestly, that was really stupid. So you take ONE more hit? I was expecting to be invisible or something. That was really lame.

  • July 19, 2011 at 12:38 am

    I was 8 when this game came out and it took me many years to beat it the NES itself. I was probably just about in my teens at the time and fired up the NES, giving one last effort to run through. I was successful but felt robbed of the glory because when I got to Shredder, I threw a Scroll at him, it got stuck on the right side of the higher platform where it hit him as soon as he form, and stayed there, retaining the trample properties. He just kept jumping into it trying to get to me and died. I didn’t really have to do anything and it was a horrible, horrible twist of fate. I would have gladly sat there and throw more on my own, but no. This is probably where the cosmic conspiracy in my life began, where nothing comes without a hitch.

    Seems like a hell of a lot of work just to appear as a zombie turtle for a few seconds.

    how do you find these glitches, is it out of pure random or do you search for it just wondering becouse it seems like a lot of work

  • Ken

    July 19, 2011 at 1:10 am

    wow, mike, did you just call those shurikens which the NINJA turtles are using “chinese stars”?

  • TheTempleKnight

    July 19, 2011 at 1:17 am

    HAHAHA. I would never actually put the time into doing this glitch… However, I found it very entertaining to watch. How do you top this?

  • dakaarts

    July 19, 2011 at 1:21 am

    yeah mike, I agree with Ken, those aren’t “chinese stars” those are called “shuriken” and are a JAPANESE weapon which ninja use. You should watch anime xD
    nice video anyway, do more 😛

  • LordKickass

    July 19, 2011 at 1:33 am

    Chinese Stars, Throwing Stars, Shurikens, Whatever! It’s all the same fucking shit. They’re weapons that you throw. You are seriously a dork if you care about the political correctness of a term like that. Get a fucking life. Also, Anime sucks, and if you like it, you suck dick.

  • July 19, 2011 at 1:44 am

    How do you do this Mike?

  • net_rogue

    July 19, 2011 at 2:02 am

    Mike, fuck the nay-sayers! Nobody puts their hearts into this shit like you guys and I love it! At 30, every bit of this site is PURE NOSTALGIA! Keep it comin!

  • July 19, 2011 at 2:15 am

    love it! keep up the great work mike!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that died after beating the Technodrome, That happened to me once when I was kid and I had 3 of the turtles left. Donatello died after walking off of the tracks and the game froze right there. I fucking raged, which was not uncommon for this game.

  • July 19, 2011 at 2:29 am

    Thats kind of a whack glitch. looks like to much work to pull off a glitch that may freeze your game when your so close to the end

  • lorence05

    July 19, 2011 at 2:33 am

    i wonder has James or Mike finally beat TMNT yet
    because i have beaten the game long time ago easily

  • frankblack666

    July 19, 2011 at 2:42 am

    I just have to say I really admire your tenacity (or your OCD, whichever the case), because that game was frustrating as all hell back in the day. I only have two bad memories of TMNT, and that fucking game is one of them!!! (the other is the third movie, obviously)

    @Matthew Luongo
    If it makes you feel any better, you didn’t miss much. Shredder is seriously one of the easiest bosses in any NES game. If I remember right the Scroll normally kills him in one or two hits anyway.

    Zombie turtles? Surely we are nearing the end of the world!

  • July 19, 2011 at 5:06 am

    It’s personally surprising to me how thick my nostalgic rose colored glasses are for this very flawed game. :-/ Great video Mike! Geeeez, what torture!

  • Scab

    July 19, 2011 at 6:04 am

    zombies and turtles, where did i hear that combination before?….
    Could it be that mike or james is the ‘I like turtles’-kid??

    weak mike. but i still love you

  • July 19, 2011 at 7:54 am

    You sure have done alot of turtle stuff, are you seriously into it this much or just had alot of stuff laying about but jesus i dont think theres a thing i dont know about the turtles now. Fun stuff hope other projects are working well good luck and all that. Mebe you want to do a comentary on the films you know really hammer the subject down Angry mutant ninja nerd!

  • July 19, 2011 at 9:20 am

    ENOUGH TMNT ALREADY !!! Quit spamming the good name of Cinemassacre.

  • NerdKore64

    July 19, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Good video albeit short. I have a feeling that James and company are nearing the end of the Turtle Tuesday Summer, because the videos for TT have gotten shorter and slightly repetitve ala Project TMNT. Which is my least favorite video’s because it’s been done to death. I’m not trying to sound ungreatful because I’ve enjoyed most of the content that has been put out. I know it would take some work for James, but I would love to see a hand’s on review of the 2003 relaunch of the TMNT. Kind of like what he did with the 80’s/90’s series. I’d also love to hear Jame’s thought’s on yet another relaunch to the TMNT series that will be debuting on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2012. Seeing that the new series will be in CG, I’d like to get Jame’s opinion on it.

    awesome glitch i wanna try it

  • NerdKore64

    July 19, 2011 at 9:23 am

    I need to correct a mistake I made. I said that James and company made a video called Project TMNT. It is actually Generation TMNT. Sorry for the fuck up.

  • July 19, 2011 at 10:06 am

    HELP! I’m a turtle and I can’t get up!

  • AnKun

    July 19, 2011 at 10:13 am

    Doing this trick is one of the most useless and pointless waste of time I’ve seen. Seriously. How more pointlessly you can waste your precious time??

  • WestBuiltAMountain

    July 19, 2011 at 10:29 am

    @ MotherFucker Mike

    There is no payoff. You have to actually die for the trick to work – then you basically just die again in one hit. You’re wasting a turtle on purpose for absolutely no reason. There is no payoff. Just keep him alive and take as little damage as you can, and you can use him in the next stage too, but with more health.

  • Dolly Dagger

    July 19, 2011 at 10:56 am

    @ WestBuiltAMountain – Have you played the Technodrome level? Because there’s an excellent chance that at least one of your turtles will die, even starting out with full health (and after the tunnel system, that prospect is very unlikely). There are about a billion projectiles and foot soldiers that it spits out, and the Technodrome itself hurts you to touch the tank treads as it moves back and forth.

    It wouldn’t be hard to get one of your turtles down to one health bar to attempt this trick…but the timing of the trick itself looks damn near impossible.

  • Villarreal

    July 19, 2011 at 10:57 am

    I guess this glitch is to make a hard game nearly impossible!!
    I remember when I used to play this game, it was one of my favorites! I knew all the spots where u could rescue the dead/captured turtles. I even could deactivate the explosives in the damn without getting hit.

    Lots of fun!!, but then again the technodrome level was impossible :/ (They should have allowed Splinter to become a playable character in the last part)

  • PorkFrydRice

    July 19, 2011 at 11:01 am

    As much as I’d like to try this glitch out for myself. I seriously doubt I have the patience to disarm all those underwater bombs again.

  • JamesRolfe

    July 19, 2011 at 11:21 am

    I used to play this game endlessly as a kid but never made it to the Technodrome. It was too hard!

  • July 19, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    I’ve only made it this far once. Getting past Mecha Turtle used to be such a big deal b.i.t.d. . Getting to the technodrome was quite an accomplishment..then i died. I’ll play again someday.

  • July 19, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Cool trick. Finally managed to beat this game myself only a week ago, after having it for 20 years. And now I gotta play to the Technodrome again to try this 🙂

  • amonzes

    July 19, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Whats the matter with alot of you people? It’s their videos, and it’s their website. Why should they always have to tend to the fan? Whats wrong with them having fun and posting the things they want to post? Let me answer all these questions with a single answer. Its because you guys are trolls. Don’t do it.

  • July 19, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    funny that zombie turtle was mentioned my xbox live gamertag is zombininjaturtl has been for about a year now lol

  • July 19, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Yes, you just beat the Technodrome – what a horrible thing to happen. Out of curiosity, did you impart your wisdom onto James? I’m sure this one has been haunting him for some time.

  • Swordude

    July 19, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Why is it that Mike’s lighting always makes him look incredibly pale?

  • martindg77044

    July 19, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Awesome glitch mike! I wonder if you can find any for legend of mystical ninja i would love to see kid ying and Dr. Yang really messed up. Those pictures of them between stages always seemed to make me laugh. Thats why im playing through it again albeit through emulator form but still.

  • tflynn24

    July 19, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Thank you so much for Turtle Tuesdays James and Mike– I love both of your commentaries and love having a new video each week!

    Have you guys considered doing a review of the multiple Ninja Turtles anime series?

    Keep up the great work!

  • WestBuiltAMountain

    @ Dolly Dagger

    Fair enough – I suppose if you’re in that very specific situation it could be of use.

    I did indeed get to that level. I beat the games several times as a child – it was one of my favorite NES games.

    July 20, 2011 at 2:44 am

    you made it all the way through this hard ass game for that? like 2 seconds of glitch play? your nerdiness astounds and humilitizes me. good show mike. good show

  • Zigfreed

    July 20, 2011 at 5:43 am

    Doesn’t take much intelligence to play this game does it.

  • July 20, 2011 at 6:50 am

    The game is pretty damn hard, but my love for the turtles and nes at the time granted me uber patience, I can’t count how many times I’d beaten it as a kid, and still tried to beat my record of how fast I could go through it.
    Shredder was an ass, and the damn room you’re in is so small there’s barely room to move around. Thank God for tri-stars 🙂 But what a piece of crap ending; reminds me of karate kid.

    I even loved the first game boy turtles game, ugh, now that was bad, I’m surprised you guys haven’t touched on that yet, maybe you’re saving it, it’s a shitty gem 🙂

  • July 20, 2011 at 7:28 am

    Well that was definitely interesting… that game is quite difficult, for sure. Nice touch with “What the shell?!” at the end, as well! 😀

    I know this isn’t exactly related to this video – but why the hell doesn’t this site have a forum? It’d make conversing with others about the videos a ton easier.

  • July 21, 2011 at 11:48 am

    The only game that I can’t beat! I can never make it to Shredder in the Technodrome! Too many powerful enemies inside.

    Also, there’s an easy glitch for the Mouser boss. When he is about to attack, you can pause the screen and his attack is cancelled. Also if you pause the game while his mouth is open and his weak spot is shown, when you unpause, the mouth is closed but his weak spot is still vulnerable to attack. Easy win!

    Mother Fucker Mike you are awesome, My god how do you find these things, do you use a special pro action reply where you can keep returning to the point wehre the glitch is agian and again, I cant bleive that oyu would complete the whole game over and over again, now thats dedication.

    I played the game here

    it was so good and for free, they were so kind for giving me permission. YOu dont have to sign up , but if you do as a thank you please leave the referrer as it is, its not every day someone gives you a key to pandoras box, use it wisely and always close the lid.

    Mother Fucker Mike – We salute you

    Hey Mike, I’ve actually managed to pull a variation of this off in level 3. I fell off a building and had no energy, and as a result wasn’t able to switch away from the turtle. One more hit and the turtle was caught. Maybe look into that one?

  • Kuuenbu

    November 14, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    I was hoping the “trick” in question would be the one for finding the Technodrome: compare the speed at which the screen transitions between zones in each cave. The one where the scrolling rate is slower is the one that contains the Technodrome.
