I always seem to get to the level where you have to find the Technodrome in one of the three sewer holes before I have to 'continue'.  I tried my damnedest to fill up with pizza so I could find it, but ended up just getting to the fight, then losing because I was jumping around like an idiot instead of actually beating the Technodrome.  So I had to go back through the level, and I just couldn't get enough pizza, kept losing Turtles, and eventually, lost them all.  I have no idea if this is a good score, but hey, here it is.

nice job, that's a really good score if you ask me.  that game's tough as nails!  I think what you described is the farthest I could make it back in the 90's

now I've played it a bit & didn't even break 100k. 

still I think it is easily the best of the 3 TMNT games for NES.  more challenging & interesting than the "arcade" style ones.  It is the least popular because a lot of people are not up for that kind of a challenge.  I also didn't care for the jump-kick style in TMNT arcade games and other beat-'emups that followed.  It basically makes you do that all the time & it's not as fun of a jump-kick as in Double Dragon & what-not.

my only complaint about Double Dragon Neon for PS3 (otherwise i love it!) is that it has this TMNT-style jump-kicking action & flying robots & jet-pack guys, making it feel partially like a TMNT arcade game.

@S.BAZ:

I love this game, and I've only seen the ending in person once.  My Dad & I, when I was maybe 7-9 years old, beat the game.  Now, if I even get to the level after the Technodrome, I get killed quick.  So I have a goal to beat the game one day on my own.  I personally love Part 3 more than any of the TMNT games, but this one is a close #2.
