Turtles for Teenage Mutant: Shredder''s Revenge offer a number of side activities for you to explore and complete, allowing you to hop in for subsequent tours to discover every collectible, level every character up, avoid the sometimes obvious challenges you faced during your first encounter.
Besides doing some side tasks, each episode of the game''s sixteen episodes includes ten Cameos, which may open the door to even more quests or hit you square in the nostalgia if it''s a character you have fond memories of the Turtles'' previous adventures. However, it''s worthwhile to seek each one of these Cameos out if you want to earn every Achievement/Trophy, earn EXP, or unlock even more missions.
