Turbo Tunnel is a level in Battletoads and is the third level of the game.

Ever since the level's appearance, Turbo Tunnel has been rather disliked by many fans, critics, and players alike, and has been considered notorious for it’s frustrating qualities.

Why It Sucks

  1. While the first part of the level is decent, the second part is the real issue, considering that you’re forced to a hover bike throughout the rest of the level, which can be rather tedious and frustrating!
  2. The hover bike part of the level is just very frustrating for these reasons:
    1. While it is sort of fun to ride a hover bike in this level, there’s just one problem, the hover bike moves EXTREMELY FAST, which makes it very hard to avoid any of the obstacles.
    2. Despite that there are warnings that tell you a wall is nearby, it’s still not very useful mainly due to the bikes’ speed, So you have to stay focused at all costs!
    3. Trying to move the Hover Bike can be a bit clunky.
    4. To make matters worse the walls are INSTANT KILL, so if you bump into even ONE of them, you’re screwed.
  3. Kind of like most levels in Battletoads, there are NO checkpoints, so if you get a game over on the hover bike part, you have to start the whole level over from the beginning!
  4. You have avoid a lot (and we mean A LOT) of obstacles while riding your Hover Bike, which is easier said than done.
  5. This is the hardest level in the entire game, and it's only the third level in the game.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The level can still be fun to play.
  2. The design for Turbo Tunnel is pretty cool looking.
  3. The first part of the level is at least decent.


  1. Be sure you have lots of lives and continues, you’re going to need them.
  2. Stay very focused at all costs.
  3. Try to move as fast as you can with the walls when on the hover bike.
