The Shredder’s Revenge update adds a custom Arcade mode, new filters, and more

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge was one of 2022’s best under-the-radar games, delivering the perfect nostalgic action for gamers of a certain age (see our review here) and now Montreal-based developer Tribute and Dotemu Games has dropped the game’s biggest update yet. This free update adds an Arcade mode that includes a variety of old “switches” that can change your experience. You can also look forward to old-school CRT and VHS visual filters and a variety of gameplay improvements. Here’s a rundown of the new TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge content…

TMNT Hacking Revenge

New features


  • A new arcade mode is here: Custom Game! Just like an actual arcade machine: customize your game experience with DIP switches: free play, old school super attacks, faster enemies, no more taunts, and much more! You can see the customization in the dedicated game lobbies. Achievement and unlock progress is disabled in custom games.


  • In the character selection menu, the host can now set the maximum number of players in the lobby.


  • Cool filters added: CRT (normal or curved) and VCR! Check them out in the list of options.



  • Taunt now only fills the first Ninja Power bar.
  • We no longer remove all accumulated Ninja Power bars upon KO on Chill difficulty.
  • Making a throw now grants the player immunity.
  • Added more feedback in the HUD when trying to perform a super attack without enough Ninja power.
  • Several small animation tweaks have been made to all bosses, often to make the attacks easier to read.
  • Fixed Dirtbag pit collision detection that was too wide and deep.
  • Reduced the number of enemies spawned in Zurax Stampede and Stampede Frequency. Zorax also has slightly lower health when going up against multiple players.
  • Now the Rat King does Pied Piper less frequently.
  • The Super Shredder’s combat has been improved in several small ways for smoother pacing and has tweaked some damage values. His grip is now used more frequently and is more efficient. The problem, dude!
  • Tyranny speed improvement and adjustment of some damage values.
  • Mother Mouser has a new bite animation to differentiate a charging bite from an idle bite, to give players time to react.
  • Clash of Mice Model 3 and Mama Mouser now act a little faster.
  • Radical mode damage multiplier is now applied to all throws, Super Dive Attack and Charged Heavy Swing.
  • Fixed players sometimes falling off screen more frequently when respawning, in specific locations.


  • Added “Refresh” button to the lobby search menu.
  • We’ve improved the way arcade points are calculated: we now score each player individually, even if they leave the game.


  • Correction or improvement of some strings in Spanish, French and German.


  • The game will remember if the gameplay was seen, separately in the story and arcade modes because they are different.
  • Improved prompting to reset your story and character progression.
  • The pause menu in Arcade mode now displays the total playing time.


  • Steam Intro: Improved support for PS5 controllers.

Of course, the new TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge update also includes a number of bug fixes. If you need to know more about it, you can check out the full, unabridged patch notes here.
