Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Heroes in a Half Shell is a Plug & Play Hero Portal developed by HotGen and released by Jakks Pacific in 2014. Using toy figures similar to Skylanders, you place a figure on the portal base unit to play as in the game.

Unit and figures


The game is a beat em' up with six stages, and each stage has three mini-game challenges. Some mini-games can only be accessed with a certain figure. Mini-games include ninja training, flying through mutagen clouds, driving to stop an enemy, and attacking footclans.

There are four different medals you can earn by clearing the stage and minigames: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Collecting all the mutagen canisters in the game unlocks the Ultimate Hero Mode.

A boss battle against Shredder is encountered at the end of Stage 3. The game does not have a final boss in Stage 6, you just fight off hordes of footclans and then the mutagen cloud disappears and the game is complete.
