Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project is a game released for the NES based on the popular television animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was developed and published by Konami.


  • The game was featured on the cover of Nintendo Power V33.
  • The intro uses a now-controversial strobe effect, popular in Japan at the time. The effect is now strongly discouraged due to its association with photosensitive epileptic seizures.
  • The Manhattan Project in reality was the name of what would eventually become known as the atomic bomb.
  • A Triceraton can be seen on the cover artwork, but does not actually appear in this game.
  • Entering the Konami Code at the turtle-select screen with the A and B functions switched will bring up a stage select and options menu. It is the only way to change the game options.
