Nickelodeon Launches First Global Mobile App Inspired by Wildly Popular "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Available Today, Exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch Devices

Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Rooftop Run App Live Today!

NEW YORK, April 18, 2012 -- Today Nickelodeon launches Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, the network's first worldwide mobile app, available in more than 150 countries and eight languages. Join Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo in this endless runner ninja combat game, where players run, jump and fight their way across the rooftops of New York in an attempt to save the city from the invading Kraang and ultimate destruction. Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run features full 3D characters and environments based on the CG-animated series. The app is available today for $1.99.

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, players assume the role of their favorite Turtle as they outrun the Kraang's tractor beam, battling enemies with Ninjutsu combat along the way. As enemies are defeated, players earn coins that can be redeemed for awesome power ups, weapons and gear. Collecting energy orbs fills the player's Energy Meter and keeps the Kraang away. Once the Energy Meter is filled, players enter "Turtle Time" - a special combat mode where game play is zoomed in and slowed down, and players must tap in rapid succession, striking multiple enemies simultaneously in a thrilling fight sequence to increase coin collection.

To enhance gameplay experience, players can visit the Turtle Lair to unlock characters, purchase power ups and upgrade their Turtle's weapons and gear. Enhancements can be purchased using game coins or an iTunes account. New gear influences coin collection rates, energy meter drainage and refills, builds players' resistance to certain obstacles and enables them to fast-forward to any section of the game already played, gaining additional coins.

Game Features Include:

Battle hoards of enemies from the Foot Clan, Kraang, and Dimension X

Activate Turtle Time to fight up close in a slow-motion combat sequence

Outfit the Turtles in exclusive Cyber and Stealth gear

Upgrade with weapons, gadgets and boosts like the Laserbot and Turtle Saver

Unlock and play as the Turtles' formidable canine foe Dogpound

Earn rewards from the pizza time mini-game

Epic Boss Battles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run will be translated into eight languages, English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish (Latin America) and Spanish (Spain).
