Go ninja, go ninja go!

TMNT fans have reason to celebrate, as the heroes in a half shell made a welcome re-appearance in the video game world with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, an endless running title with a heavy emphasis on fighting. If you fork over the $1.99 to download this iPhone and iPad effort, these helpful tips will strike fear into the Foot.


-Collect as many green orbs as possible to keep the turtle's energy meter from running out. Fail to do this, and a spaceship will ensnare your hero in its tractor beam.

-Fill the energy meter completely to activate Turtle Time, a mini game that challenges you to quickly tap shrinking green circles to earn gold coins.

-Press and hold the screen to instruct your turtle to run along walls.

-Tap the screen whenever your turtle is near an enemy to attack, preferably when the red targeting icon appears. The more bad guys you beat up, the more coins you'll earn.

-Some enemies require more than one hit to defeat.

-So long as you're within range, turtles automatically grab onto ledges and run up walls.

-Avoid bombs, since hitting these objects slow your turtle down.

-You can only play as one turtle to begin the game. The other three cost 3,600 coins apiece, while Dogpound is 28,500 coins.

-Purchase boosts in the store to gain a valuable edge.

-Don't forget to buy some gadgets from time to time, like the Energy Magnet (collects nearby orbs), the Turtle Saver (potentially survive the Kraang ship) and Rocket Launch (receive a head start). Just keep in mind that you'll need quite a few coins to purchase everything.

-For the full list of achievements, press the trophy icon located on the top left corner of the screen.

-Tap the screen once to jump, twice in mid air to double jump.

-Spin the pizza wheel following a run to earn prizes.

Be mindful of where you'll land following a jump to avoid bombs and game-ending pits.
