Ubisoft Releases TMNT Demo For The PC

February 21, 2007

Sing along with me – “Heroes in a half shell! Turtle power!” Ah, we are truly children of the ’80s. Anyway, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, like so much from my youth, are being resurrected for a more contemporary audience with a new CG movie and – yes – a new video game.

Yet, unlike when I was a wee lad, this latest game is coming not from Konami, but rather from the French care of Ubisoft. However, while the movie looks a bit questionable, you have to at least expect a modicum of good things to come from the game given Ubisoft’s stellar track record. And just to drive that point home, today the company released a PC demo for the upcoming ninja amphibian game, which is available for all to grab over at [url=http://www.fileplanet.com/]FilePlanet[/url].

Says the description:
[quote]In the demo, players can control Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael in ninja-tag sequences. Players can perform acrobatic moves and experience over-the-top ninja action across the rooftops of New York City. Players will also engage in a battle with diverse enemies and see how the family bond and brotherly co-op actions can enhance the game play experience and help to combat evil. A tutorial screen provides instructions and information on how to navigate and complete certain co-op moves in the game.[/quote]

The full game will be available at retail March 20, just days prior to the release of the film’s debut in theaters on March 23. So, for those of you who have played the demo, any thoughts?
