Post a score and let's get this thing rolling!
Please post any tips you may have - best tip gets 1 bonus point!
And if anyone has a link to the manual, please post it.
Note: Only scores earned in games played from the beginning will count - no continues! And no leeching! Going in and out of sewers to grab pizza/weapons is ok, in moderation, but keep moving forward in the game!

Original game developed by Konami in 1989.
Other platforms: Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, MSX, Wii, ZX Spectrum
Prequels/Sequels/Spinoffs: Many! Konami released two arcade TMNT games, both of them four-player beat-em-ups. The NES also got Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (1990, a port of the arcade TMNT), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project (1991), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (1993).
The Gameboy got Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan (1990), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Back from the Sewers (1991), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue (1993). The SNES saw releases of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (1992) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (1993). Genesis owners got to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The HyperStone Heist (1992) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (1993). Spinoffs and sequels were released for many modern systems as well.
Tip: at the end of some of the manhole stages there is a slice of pizza. If you enter, grab the pizza, exit and reneter, the pizza will be there again. Use this to replenish your dying turtles!
Tip: when fighting Rocksteady at the end of the warehouse stage, use Donatello. Jump on the top of the stacked crates on the right side of the screen. Crouch down and quickly keep stabbing downwards. Rocksteady will run to the boxes until he can't go any further. He will then run in place and jump. When he jumps Donatello's staff is just long enough to poke him in the back. Keep doing this until he dies, leaving Donatello unharmed!
As far as progression, I got to the technodrome. I found the lvl3-4 bosses are easy if you have scrolls, so when you find those make sure you hold on to them.
