TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge – How to beat Dirtbag
The main problem with battling Dirtbag is that he will not be alone. His good friend and another classic enemy, Groundchuck. Dirtbag will hit you from underground, by digging a hole and attacking with shovels from underneath.
Furthermore, he also has a helmet that blinds the TMNT by reflecting light off of it. The multiplayer mode is the best way to take down the both bosses, as playing singleplayer may get you overwhelmed.
