Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :  Dark Horizons

TMNT Dark Horizons is the cult-classic based on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series revival. It was the first game to be based on the Nickelodeon versions of the characters as an action-packed 2d sidescroller beat-em-up fighting game.

We created a unique aesthetic that renders the characters as shadows with neon details, that worked exceptionally with the underground and menacing sewer scenery. We also included several cinematic scenes between screens and levels to create a more immersive experience.
Also, Players can choose their favorite shock shell-hero in an over-the-top underground sewer system, packed to the brim with enemies, bosses and fight combos.

Characters, Animations and Fun Stuff

Even it was done a few years ago, this game really rocked. First, it was the re-design of the turtles to fit the game dynamic and also to keep a consistent and simple way to animate the characters in each pose, each fighting style, elements of the background, shadows, lights, to give the necessary depth to the game. The reception was amazing and it became one of the most played games all across Nickelodeon sites from the UK to Chile.

We also created a version of the game for mobile using Unity. The Original game was only made for desktop. Our dev team was amazing (Ariel, Bubba, Santi, and Javi). I still have that iPhone 5 :) with the broken down connector!
