TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge Is on Mobile as a Netflix Exclusive
Months after its console and PC release, beat ’em up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is the latest game to head to mobile for Netflix subscribers.
Yesterday, Netflix announced the game’s arrival on mobile with a trailer. According to Netflix’s in-app description, the mobile port still features controller support and online multiplayer gameplay.
Inspired by arcade beat ’em ups of the ’90s (and including quite a few improvements to their combat systems), TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge sees the classic Turtles, along with a few newly playable characters, taking on new foes through a campaign mode and an arcade mode.
IGN gave TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge an 8 in our review, praising its “fun combat, a charming and nostalgic pixel aesthetic, and one of the best soundtracks of the year so far” despite its occasionally tedious level design.
In recent months, Netflix has added quite a few notable games to its roster, including indies like Spiritfarer, Into the Breach, and Before Your Eyes. The streaming service is also developing games of its own, including what seems to be an AAA shooter game, through its new studio.
However, Netflix hasn’t had an easy time getting subscribers to play its games, with less than 1 percent of subscribers playing games via Netflix as of August.
