The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles must rescue April O'Neil from a burning building. Just as they do, Shredder appears and captures her.
You control any of the four turtle warriors as you battle your way through endless Foot Clan soldiers, robots, and mutants to reach the boss at the end of the level. Though each of the turtles have their own weapons, they all have the same level of effectiveness and can also be hurt the same way. Energy is restored by walking on top of pizza boxes that the turtles come across.
The NES version features billboard advertisements for Pizza Hut, plus two additional levels not found in the arcade original.
