Ninja Turtles Arena Game… This is Madness!

Back in the ’90s if you told me that there was going to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arena game I would’ve probably spit out my big league chew right into the floor.

Not only was I obsessed with Quake III at the time but turtle games in general I thought were amazing.

Be sure to let me know on YouTube who your favorite Ninja Turtle is! (#quakefans)

It’s Pizza Time

Ninja Turtles Pizza

Now this Turtle Arena game which you can get completely free.

It’s not quite done, but its got a really good start. I wouldn’t mind seeing it eventually getting some nice polish and a full release someday.

The hit detection is awful and all the sounds are made with the developers mouth.

Yet it is still fun and has great potential.

I believe that the greatest strength of this game is the graphics.

If we could somehow get this game polished up and release I think it would be a great little game to play! (Developers start a gofundmepage!)

The Ninja Turtles Arena game is built on the spearmint engine. Which is basically ioquake3 engine!

Many standalone games that love the feel and movement of Quake III are using this engine to build their games.

Spearmint however has ceased development since 2018.

Hopefully, the Turtle Arena hasn’t been turned into vaporware and can finally get an amazing release.

Conclusion

The Turtles Arena has amazing potential and you get to play as your favorite Ninja Turtle with rockets!

Is it something we should take serious. Probably not, but let’s hope and believe that this game might one day see a full release!

Go collect some pizzas and play the weird obelisk game while doing some back-flips.

You should totally follow me on twitter.

Did you know Quake Champions had Comic Books? Check out the review I did on them.

The ioquake3 Engine – Engine for Quake III

The original Quake III engine is OLD. ioquake3 brings us quake fans a new way to enjoy all the same old MODS, Games and Add-ons on a newer, supported and updated engine!

So let’s take a look at a new engine for quake III
I hope to be making ALL kinds of Quake III related videos simply because of ioquake3.
