Turtles in Time is a fondly remembered classic, so a remake was a no-brainer from a business perspective. Unfortunately, Konami, the company that produced the original masterpiece, was out of the picture. Instead, the rights were acquired by Ubisoft, and the result was Turtles in Time Re-Shelled.
Re-Shelled retained the story, basic gameplay style and level layout, but it was given a complete graphical upgrade and ditched the chiptunes for a modern rock soundtrack. Due to this, Ubisoft’s take on this quintessential licensed tie-in received a fairly negative reception from critics and gamers alike. Is Re-Shelled really a shell shock? Find out on Innocent Until Proven Guilty! Thanks for watching:)

Whereas LJN Defender focuses solely on sticking up for LJN games, Innocent Until Proven Guilty takes a close examination of notoriously “bad” video games from other publishers. While my area of expertise lies in retro video game consoles from Nintendo’s NES to the Sega Genesis and beyond, IUPG will eventually dip into modern-ish gaming, with a few select Xbox 360 and Wii games being considered for “trial”.
In an average Innocent Until Proven Guilty episode, I give each defendant a fair trial, or review in this case, and bring up their redeeming and condemning qualities. After the examination is concluded, I put the game through one final breakdown, where I weigh all of the Innocent and Guilty traits against each other. After that’s finished, it’s time to give out the final verdict.
While I’m very forgiving of “bad” video games and there will never be an “execution” of a guilty party, I will give it a strict reprimand when needed. That’s IUPG in a nutshell. Watch me dish out digital justice in a snazzy looking suit coat and bow tie combo. Thanks for watching:)
Have a retro title that you’d like to see me review or a “bad” game that you’d want to see me give a fair trial on Innocent Until Proven Guilty? Feel free to suggest one in the comments.
Also, if you want to know what video games I own, I keep track of most of my collection on Nintendo Age. Feel free to consult it when making a request:
As always, thank you for watching. Your support means the world to me:)
