  • New characters

    by Vcloonan

    This game is amazing but we need more characters like casey jones,karai,shredder,foot solider


    by OhioGuyPopFan

    The game is fun overall but the rounds that involve the shell raiser always freeze A LOT and always makes me crash into things after it unfreezes. PLESE fix ASAP as I won't play again until then. Also I agree I need more villains to battle. Going through the same Baxter and krang ship gets really old. Why isn't there a shredder option? That seems silly to not fight him at all. Also add splinter and kasey jones as playable characters. To be fair, you should already know all of this as developers.

  • BUGS!!

    by HeidiM67

    It was GREAT before the update but now on my IPad Mini it freezes and unfreezes and crashes. It was so great before! I ♥️

  • Glitch

    by WILLANATOR11076

    When you play this game for a long time it does this glitch where the screen freezes.But overall this game is good.

    by Alopez99


  • Great but needs fixing

    by Member Betsy

    iPad version freezes up and shuts down a lot.

  • Tell me your lv

    by Luxray320

    I started with donatello he is lv 5 also this game is awesome :3

  • Fun and rewarding

    by Casual game dude 17

    It's a fun game, but it lags constantly on levels with driving and later rooftop levels, this may just be because I'm running on an iPhone 4, it constantly freezes mid way into a game, this is beyond annoying to start over hope this is fixed up soon though

  • Roof top run

    by Sebjambad2653

    This game is awesome I think they should add splinter and the go kart and metal head to the game and make a shredder attack

  • Fun but not perfect

    by Neoa88

    Fun game but glitches and freezes on the iPad about 1 in every 10 runs or so. In app purchases are too expensive as well.

  • Eh, not bad.


    Love the turtles. & the game. But I have some problems. Like; to much glitches. exits me off every once in awhile. Does need some work. Ain't worth $4.00 tho. More like $1.00 • Hoping you can fix the bugs. I'd be so grateful, my little brother loves it. But he gets mad when he plays. Just please fix it!

  • Awesome but flawed!

    by Coach2780

    Awesome game but crashes too much on my ipad air? Great game for father and son, would like leather head, fish face, splinter and shredder added.

  • Crash

    by Demoniclizarddeath

    App crashes every time I try to open it. Please fix this bug.

  • Rad app game for a Legendary Cartoon!

    by awaitance

    I've loved TMNT's since I was a kid. I'm so glad this side scroller is available, & not lame. It's awesome to be able to play with my niece & nephew about something I also loved as a kid!

  • Fun for dad and 4 year old son

    by stormchas3r

    The game is awesome. Lots of fun. I was into the turtles years ago when I was a wee little lad. Now I'm hooked again.

  • Good Game

    by Albatross3under

    This game is good, but it plays kind of choppy on the original iPad. Graphics and intermissions are really cool. It definately keeps you interested and coming back for more.

  • Not working. Crashes!!!!

    by sevelalo

    Doesn't work. When I try to choose a turtle it crashes!!!!!!!!

  • TMNT waste of money

    by Rabbi_73

    This app will not even open on my iPad. Bad

  • Update issues.

    by EG426

    Before the update I rated this 5 stars. Now that it has updated, it is pretty much unplayable. Freezes all the time, and completely crashes during the Shellraiser street part. Can't even play that part at all. Loving all the new content, just wish I could play it. :/

  • Worst App!

    by Brandie711

    I paid $3.99 for this app and it's never, ever worked. My four-year old was so excited, and couldn't wait for it to finish downloading, however it plays the intro then shuts down EVERY time. Needless to say he's sad he cannot play it, doesn't understand why it will never play (nor do I), and I'm stuck with it and out almost $4. I don't recommend this app at all.

  • Crash and Lag

    by jakobrobinson

    The game seems like it would be fun if I could get passed the first level with it lagging out,......so basically it is a waste of money!

  • One of the worst

    by DanVader228

    One of the worst performing games out there. It started out glitchy, but fun. After a few updates, performance has gotten WORSE. It's completely unplayable now. I have iPad mini and iPhone 4S with latest iOS. Fix it please! The Turtles deserve better!

  • Working fine UNTILL...

    by I needed a nickname so here

    I've been playing this game since it's release and its worked no problem. Even after it's most recent update it functioned just fine. Then outta nowhere it decided to not even take me to the opening title. Crash crash crash. I've been waiting for this problem to fix itself but it's more than clear that's not gonna happen. 'Getting a little irritated here... |:[

  • Terrible!!

    by 02dcummins

    This app crashes before my son can even play! He is so disappointed :(

  • Would be great IF IT WORKED!

    by GIH8

    My son loves this game but it freezes all the time. Definitely NOT worth the $3.99!!! Horrible game!!!

  • Fix it now!

    by Raisingduckdynasty

    Fix the crashing issue!

  • Fun and rewarding

    by Casual game dude 17

    It's a fun game, but it lags constantly on levels with driving and later rooftop levels, this may just be because I'm running on an iPhone 4, but still it's fun, hope it can be fixed up a bit

  • Awesome but put new characters

    by Jo+Jo+45

    at first it was ok but after the update it is just awesome I love it but they should add a new characters like leather head,slash, and metal head

  • BOOYAKASHA!!!!!!

    by Dj. Mady

    Love it I have not had no problems no crashes no lag it's great and easy to pick up

  • Addicting and Awesome to Play!

    by Kiryugirl101

    It's really fun and addicting to play, but for some reason my Raphael character is being all glitchy!! I can play the game fine with Mikey, Donny, and Leo, but Raph is always glitching on me especially when it I'm on the streets with him! Fix it please! Raph is my favorite turtle!!

  • Turtle Power

    by Ktjodude

    This game is amazing! When the update came everything was fixed. I would love if you added Karai, fishface, and maybe even battle shredder. If you could update dogpound to razor plz. Overall great game! Recommended for everyone that is a tmnt fan!! Turtle out!

  • Good but Freezing

    by KillaKamari

    Every time I go to the streets it freezes! Please Help!

  • IPod Update

    by Darktail221

    I just got the app and it downloads and all, but once it starts loading, it freezes and goes back to my original screen. I repeated this a dozen times, but it's still not working. I would really like to play it, but it's not letting me. Please fix this.

  • Best game ever

    by Maxoneinamillion

    All these cool characters killing Krang makes this cool

  • Crashing

    by Muckman82

    Worst $4 I ever spent. My son never got to play it. I deleted it and re-installed it with no luck.

  • Crashing

    by Muckman82

    Worst $4 I ever spent. My son never got to play it. I deleted it and re-installed it with no luck.

  • I Paid Why Are There Ads?

    by Wiebs34

    The game play has been way better since the update. I am upset though that I paid for this app and advertisements still pop up. If your going to advertise then why charge?

  • Does not even open!

    by Vcl4119

    I just purchased this for my son and it will open to the Nickelodeon screen and simply crashes/closes. I would not purchase until this is fixed. I'll wait a week and there is no update, I'll be asking for a credit or refund.

  • Love

    by AR266

    The updated version is SO much better! My little one can play easily and win! Runs great as well!

  • Fun game, but.....

    by TheHiddenMaster

    The game is great. My kids and I both love it. Only problem I've found is that it keeps freezing and unfreezing at points making it nearly unplayable. The kids get frustrated very quickly.

  • Freeze Time

    by Broncho1

    Bought this for my kid to play on the IPAD mini. It comes on and then goes into a force shutdown. It is a great game when it is up an running, though.

  • Bad update

    by Billy McCarty

    Streets mode is super janky and has bad streaming issues. It has clunky controls and seems to always crash on good runs.

  • Ahhhhh

    by Tickedoffmomma

    What is going on? I've spent a ton of money on this app buying coins o my little boy can unlock all the characters. He has played this game for months. After the update it crashed constantly!!!! He just went back into the game and it said it was downloading.. After the download the whole thing was erased!!! He now has to start back at square one!!! I want all my money back!!!!!!!

  • Great game! But needs to be fixed!!

    by Tourhead1980

    Please please please fix this game.. Wow great game if only worked past the 3rd level ( level's are short fyi ) .. I love this game , but cant play it mu h cause it stalls constantly.!!

  • Not consistent

    by thesallystruthers

    This game has tons of bugs and is not programmed consistently. When you purchase upgrade gadgets they disappear or do not calculate correctly. Also, when you purchase the Level Skip gadget 9 out of 10 times the game crashes when you use it. This game is designed so they can cash in on upgrade purchases.

  • New update

    by Gus_Lbc

    Game crashes when I get to the shellriser. Please fix ASAP!!!

  • Has potential

    by JLR129

    This is a fun game and has a lot of potential. However, before it can ever be anywhere close to good, they need to fix the freakin bugs. It lags and force closes all the time. Fix the game and I'll fix my rating.

  • Lags

    by Random Dude 48

    I love the game! Great graphics, awesome gameplay, but it lags when I jump. I personally love everything about TMNT. But can you fix the lag???

  • Won't download

    by Upset mom 0913

    My son was so excited when I purchased this but it won't ever download completely! Waste of money!

  • Great game

    by Kathryn Bell

    The games is great! A fun running game with the turtles! If Baxter boss level crashes try getting more available storage space, it worked for me.

  • Best TMNT App Ever

    by Queen of the Sea 527

    This app for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the best ever and totally awesome. ;)

  • Good app

    by Deer Hunter 2014 Champion

    Now I'm a different guy,not like my brother, I like TMNT so don't listen to crackpot over there do not get rid of the Shellraiser or Stockman, because then it's just running up and down a rooftop. But, I LOST MY DATA! All of it all of the characters,suits,and weapons. So if not that it would have been 5 stars. And I do say put Kari,Shredder,Kraang,And Splinter. Thank You.

  • Awesome But Has Some Problems

    by Blf48

    I got this app a couple days after it came out and it was decent. But then after a few updates it started crashing and freezing and unfreezing. It depends on what you play it on. I play it on my Ipad Mini. I also wish they would add more boss battles like Shredder and Karai. They could also add more playable vehicles like the Stealth Shell. They should also add Splinter,Casey Jones, and Fishface as playable characters. So, overall not that bad of a game.

  • Crashes on opening

    by Vamaiden

    This was by sons favorite game. Now it crashes as soon as it opens on IPAD. Last fix broke it.

  • Always Crashing

    by Smaden623

    Love the idea but it keeps freezing when my son gets to the second challenge he used his smoke bomb to go to next level and it shut down and when the game restarted it showed that the smoke bomb was used. I am very disappointed. Fix the app

  • Awesome

    by Hdjjdidjudididhdudhhd

    This game is awesome I have no problem with this game

  • Tmnt

    by Biphazzard2.0

    Slow but awsome

  • Bad update

    by Jrodrig

    The update causes the game to freeze and crash a lot. Can't give an honest review if I can't even play the game.

  • TMNT are awesome

    by Kasem Rules!

    This game is great. Controls are working great. Everything seems to be working fine. Have been playing this for almost a week and does very seldomly kick you off the game. This game is appropriate for 7 and up.

  • Turtle - Tastic

    by Kitty 101

    I love this app ! It's super fun. I recommend it for any tmnt it's really fun and it rarely ever crashs for me. Could you add more characters thought like fish face, Karai , splinter or mabye even shredder. Could you also update dog pound to razor. I would also like it if you gave April and dog pound outfits like the turtles okay thanks

  • Doesn't work

    by ARF00777

    As one of the only game apps ever purchased, really disappointing. I thought something with the Nick name would be decent. Do not buy.

  • Ripoff

    by 5 year old parent.

    Leave it to a cable network to think they can right software.This app won't even open.This was very disappointing for my five year old child that loves the TMNT's.Ever heard of QAT?

  • Fun but needs fixes

    by Demon don

    by 2 pirates

  • Nice game!!!!!!!cool

    by Bubbles❤

    I like this game a lot but it x's out on me sometimes and it gets annoying !!! And it does load fast and when I am playing it without it Xing out its a lot of FUN!!!!!!


    by Eraer739

    This was such a good game until the update! It doesn't even load on my iPhone 5! I want my money back! This game is a piece of hunkajunk crap!

  • Awesome but...

    by Jj 987

    When I go to the street it does not shut down but it takes a while to go to it you should also add more characters also there should be vs mode and multi player

  • Awesome!!!!!!

    by Love love love live

    I am the 1#fan of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and i totally love this game!!!!!it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the new update!!

  • Not really a game

    by Alliya36

    I am totally so confused about this game. My son gets into the level & the turtles run & jump on their own. There is no control of the game. Unless we are doing something wrong, I don't understand how anyone considers this a game if you can't control it.

  • Booyakasha!!!

    by Pandxman

    This app is only getting better and better! I love the updates and the different types of games going from a side scroller to a runner. It can only go up from here. Thank you !

  • Horrible app. Crashes on load, does not work on iPad 1

    by Killergame1234

    Just purchased for my son only to disappoint . Game will not load, going through the process to get my money back. Don't buy unless you want the same hassle

  • Freezes

    by Tom57563

    With the new streets update, the game constantly freezes as to where I can't play it anymore. Game was awesome before update.

  • Refund

    by Shortyffghvv

    I want a refund every time i open it closes can't even play it for 4 bucks that is not cool.

  • Rip off

    by Mona1981

    I bought couple of coins for my son for 1.99 buy then he kept buying it when I left the room for almost 75.00. When trying to cancel it wouldn't let me!!!! Are you kidding me? I just e-mailed Apple Support. I hope that they will help me out . Don't buy!!!!

  • Buggy

    by jahosaphat

    Better after the update. But still doesn't work properly. Needs shredder boss Needs new characters Turtle raiser doesn't use upgrades. Even though I bought upgrades. Turtle time doesn't extend. This should have a vs mode!

  • Fun!

    by CC Devil Dawg

    Great Game!

  • Crashes too much

    by 7_R4W

    Great game but every since update it's been crashing on my iPod 5 please fix :/

  • Ok

    by Leonardo21904

    It's cool but a little boring

  • Waste of time

    by falcon squad

    As soon as I activate a gadget in street mode it freezes and then crashes. Once I return to the app it still counts it as if used it.

  • 5yr old

    by Lil Turtle boy

    My son loves this app he's 5 yrs old an loves everything to do with the Turtles. But he's been asking about shredder you guys should add him it would be cool


    by JasonLiam1

    This WAS my sons favorite game. He plays it on the iPad Air, but....since this last update it crashes after he selects the character every time! WHAT HAPPENED? Please fix this, if it is not fixed soon I will be deleting the game.

  • Bad game

    by Mom2MK

    Every time I go on the shell raiser and while I'm on it the game freezes.

  • Fun but...

    by t-daug

    I'm a total turtle fan and was super excited to get this game but it's so glitchy that I can't even play it. I never buy apps and this time I actually did and it's too bad that I'm disappointed with how it's working. The game is fun, when it was working, which is the only reason i gave it two stars.

  • Fun to play again.

    by Smilefallingstar

    My nephew loves this game, and I will admit I got hooked on it too. Most of the bugs are fully worked out, but some parts seem a bit glitchy. We're now able to use our purchased gadgets. Other then it's minor problems, it's a fun game with great graphics. I would recommend this game to any ninja turtle, running game player.

  • Not fixed

    by Priceless2013

    You guys need to do a better job then that because I can't play the app without it freezing up on me at moments into it

  • Good.

    by Thebestpower!!!

    It needs more characters.

  • Don't waste your $ like me

    by SbloversE&D

    Bought the app for my son he was so excited until the app crashed the minute he tried to open it! Wish I could give an actual review on the game itself but we have yet to even play it and see how it works!

  • Cool Fun App

    by MJC21

    My kid won't stop playing it. Insisted on me rating it because it is "so much fun!"

  • crash

    by ninjanastic

  • Perfect

    by Viterbo Guédez

    This game is perfect. There's nothing wrong with it so, I don't know why people keep saying it's crashing.

  • Crashes

    by brettskof

    It is a great game but it crashes when I get to the streets. I originally bought it on my 4s when it first came out.
