Hint: Defeating Bebop

To defeat Bebop, quickly jump kick over him and attack him back on when he swings his mace at you.

Hint: Defeating Groundchuck

To defeat Groundchuck, contiguously attack him, jumping and not wasting time while he charges. When he uses a pipe on you, get close to him so that he cannot hurt you, but you can still hurt him. Be alert when he charges you again, and continue this cycle until he is defeated.

Easter Egg: World Trade Center

In the elevator level, (after you defeat Shredder), you can see the World Trade Center in the background.

Hint: Tubular Turbo Attack moves

To perform a Tubular Turbo Attack move, press A and B at the same time. Note that these moves will not only take some of your enemies’ energy but will also take some of yours. They require one unit of energy per use. If you have one unit of energy remaining, you can still use the Tubular Turbo Attack move as long as desired, but watch out for enemies.
