Far below the morning rush hour in New York City, four youths are
watching their favorite news reporter--April O'Neil--on television. Things are pretty comfortable for these boys in their well-furnished subterranean hideout. That is, well-furnished if you're a turtle. A mutant turtle. Teenaged, no less. And a ninja. Okay, so you and I may not be comfortable, but these guys think the place is, like, mondo to the max. April is reporting a story from nearby Ellis Island.
Suddenly, there is a bright flash behind her. She doesn't seem to
notice, but the television viewers do. "Whoa dudes! Did you see that?"
Michaelangelo asked the others. Leonardo and Raphael stop their ninja
practice and look at the screen. "What? Did some jerk in the crowd moon the camera again?" Donatello asks from his workbench. "No way,
man." Mike answers. "But there was a most spectacular flash. It looked like an expl..." Mikey stops talking. His mouth hangs open as he stares at the screen. His eyes growing wider. Leonardo rubs his eyes. "Am I seeing things, or is April growing?" "Your perception is growing, my son." Comments Splinter. The large humanoid rat--who also serves as a teacher and mentor to the boys--is standing in the doorway at the back of the room, watching the events unfold on TV. "If you will observe, the city is actually shrinking."
On the television, April has been alerted to the commotion. She turns and watches in amazement as Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty grow smaller and smaller and... with a flash the picture scrambles then resumes. Now, instead of April reporting from Ellis Island, the screen is filled with the face of Shredder, the Turtles' long time nemesis, master criminal and an all-around geek in general. "Listen to me now New York City!" Shredder's
voice booms out from the speaker. "I have in my possession the treasure of Dimension X. It will allow me to take control of New York City today, and soon, the entire world. In my hand is the Hyperstone. I know you're watching, Turtles. You've gotten lucky in the past, but you won't stop me this time! Ha ha ha!" The screen fades to black.
"Oh man, he really burns my shorts," Raphael exclaims. Mike taps Raph
on the shoulder. "You're a turtle dude. You don't wear shorts."
"We know what you mean, man," Don says. "Shredder has really gone too far this time. It's time we put a stop to this, turtle-style!" He raises
his hand in the air, and the other three turtles rally around, giving
him high-threes. "COWABUNGA!"
--from the Sega Genesis Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist instruction manual
Based on the hit TV show this game has always been a favorite of mine. Shredder has taken a Hyperstone from Dimension X that allows him to shrink huge objects into much smaller ones. He plans on ruling the world this way and decides to start in New York. Now the turtles have to save the day once again!
