In the late 1980’s Konami developed a platform of 2D side scrolling multi player games called “beat-em-ups”.  These games had differences between the strength and weaknesses among characters and became a very popular, addictive platform for groups to enjoy at arcades.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was an early 4 player version of this platform,  playing through the pilot of the animated series the game was based on.
