Turtles

My first video game was a SEGA ripp off of Game & Watch starring Sonic. I bought that against the advice of my ever so wise mother who thought I should buy a GameBoy instead. Her reasoning was that I could switch out the games on the GameBoy so that one was better. The second time I listened to my mother and my second game and first real video game if you will was for the GameBoy. Along with the grey brick I picked up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan or just Turtles game as we called it back then.

That game was awesome, you could play as all of the Turtles, fight all the baddies from the TV show and even visit the Technodrome. And thanks to the LameBoy emulator for the DS I was able to do that all over again last night.

After finally finding a working GameBoy emulator for its two screened cousin I just had to replay Turtles. It took me about half an hour to beat it and I didnt die once until the last boss. A bit easy one might say but it was the perfect difficulty for a five year old, which was when I played that game for the first time
