Stop...JAMMA Time! - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Welcome to a new feature here on the blog entitle; "Stop...JAMMA Time!". As you may have noticed from the last few posts, I've developed an interest in JAMMA circuit boards that are used in arcade machines and so in honour of that I'm going to have a look at some of my favourite arcade games that I remember playing on my holidays as a youngster.
The first entry into "Stop...JAMMA Time!" is those green ninja reptiles, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The 4-player game developed by Konami was a regular feature in seaside resorts up and down the country throughout the early 90s. As you can see from the above image the PCB is very intricate with lots of different circuit boards located. If you look closely there are even different coloured parts for nearly all the Turtles; red for Raphael, blue for Leonardo, orange for Michelangelo with only the purple for Donatello missing.

So does anyone remember playing this whilst on holiday as a kid?
