Being turtles and all, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are known for being a particularly hearty bunch of dudes. Even so, they still take licks every now and then, which is why it’s important for them to not only stay in top form but help keep each other healthy. Here’s how to heal teammates in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.
How to Heal Teammates in Shredder’s Revenge
There are two primary avenues of healing in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge: the classic pizza method and the new Cheer Up method.
Sometimes, when you smash random environmental objects throughout the levels, a box of hot and fresh pizza will drop to the ground. You can pick it up for an immediate health boost. Pizzas actually come in two sizes, which work a little differently: a regular-sized pizza will only restore health for the one who picks it up, while a large-sized pizza will restore health for the entire party. If you’re playing with friends, remember to ration out the regular-sized pizzas to the players who need them most.
The new method for health recovery is the Cheer Up, a quick move that allows you to share some of your own health with a friend when there aren’t any pizzas handy.
To perform a Cheer Up, stand next to the player you want to help and press L1/LB. The two of you will perform a delightful high-five, transferring two pips of health from your health bar over to theirs. This is a good emergency maneuver for keeping your buddies in the game, but make sure you can spare the health yourself first.
Remember, the key to success in any side-scrolling beat ’em up is cooperation! Keep everyone hale and hearty, and you’ll clear the game just fine.
