Let's Play: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist (Genesis)

In this Let's Play session, I make an attempt to take you through the Genesis beat 'em up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist. A reworking of the arcade/SNES Turtles in Time, the Hyperstone Heist features elements borrowed from Turtles in Time, or changed around and/or missing completely.

In the video I mentioned that I probably wouldn't be doing a longplay or let's play on Turtles in Time for the SNES. However, after playing the Genesis take on the game, I had the urge to play the SNES cart afterwards, so you can expect a longplay on that sometime in the coming weeks. The Hyperstone Heist may very well be a poor man's Turtles in Time, but the fact I wanted to keep playing--and thus moved on to the SNES game afterwards--should be a testament to have addictive these games can be after you get the hang of things!



Throughout my life I have been an avid gamer. My early years in particular consisted of growing up with platforms like the Atari VCS/2600, NES, and Master System. Naturally, that led into platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD/32X, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, etc. In the mid to late 1990's, I realized (as a fledgling teenager with little disposable income) that I could obtain those systems that I once thought were completely out of my reach as a child (Neo-Geo, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, 3DO, etc.), and it was from there that I went into a long-term phase of discovering, experiencing and collecting consoles--just about anything I could get my hands on. While I enjoy the occasional modern game, these days time is limited outside of my many hobbies, so I tend to hover towards quick pick-up-and-play types of games, via generations I truly grew up with: Shoot 'em ups, arcade style beat 'em ups, platformers, light gun shooters, and racing games. Not to mention pinball games, something new (to me) that has become a main focal point of interest. In addition to the podcast with Kris, I also create a variety of content on my own YouTube Channel, including video game reviews, Long Plays, and Let's Plays.
