In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run, players assume the role of their favorite Turtle as they outrun the Kraang's tractor beam, battling enemies with Ninjutsu combat along the way. As enemies are defeated, players earn coins that can be redeemed for awesome power ups, weapons and gear. Collecting energy orbs fills the player's Energy Meter and keeps the Kraang away. Once the Energy Meter is filled, players enter "Turtle Time" – a special combat mode where game play is zoomed in and slowed down, and players must tap in rapid succession, striking multiple enemies simultaneously in a thrilling fight sequence to increase coin collection.
To enhance gameplay experience, players can visit the Turtle Lair to unlock characters, purchase power ups and upgrade their Turtle's weapons and gear. Enhancements can be purchased using game coins or an iTunes account. New gear influences coin collection rates, energy meter drainage and refills, builds players' resistance to certain obstacles and enables them to fast-forward to any section of the game already played, gaining additional coins.
