The playfield artwork is credited to Kevin O'Connor, while the backglass artwork was painted by Paul Faris.
According to Stern Pinball, the unit was the world's first game to have "twin ramps," the second game to feature the new DMD display, and the first to have a underground shot, a thematically-appropriate "subway."
- The pinball units shipped containing original Playmates Toys action figures inside the playfield.
- During a presentation at the 2015 Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show, backglass artist Paul Faris recalled that TMNT creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird twice requested him to "enlarge" April O'Neil's anatomy to make it more characteristic of "pinball art."
- The backglass artwork and general table cabinet design were reused for Boardwalk Arcade's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Electronic Pinball, released in 2019.
