The thermal Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (tSZ) effect is directly sensitive to the line-of-sight integrated ICM pressure, and is thus particularly adapted to study ICM substructures. In this paper, we apply structure-enhancement filtering algorithms to high-resolution tSZ observations (e.g., NIKA) of distant clusters in order to search for pressure discontinuities, compressions, and secondary peaks in the ICM. The same filters are applied to toy-model images and to synthetic tSZ images extracted from RHAPSODY-G cosmological hydrodynamic simulations, in order to better interpret the extracted features. We also study the noise propagation through the filters and quantify the impact of systematic effects, such as data-processing-induced artifacts and point-source residuals, the latter being identified as the dominant potential contaminant. In three of our six NIKA-observed clusters we identify features at high signal-to-noise ratio that show clear evidence for merger events. In MACS J0717.5+3745 (z=0.55), three strong pressure gradients are observed on the east, southeast, and west sectors, and two main peaks in the pressure distribution are identified. We observe a lack of tSZ compact structure in the cool-core cluster PSZ1 G045.85+57.71 (z=0.61), and a tSZ gradient ridge dominates in the southeast. In the highest redshift cluster, CL J1226.9+3332 (z=0.89), we detect a ridge pressure gradient of ∼45-arcsec (360kpc) in length associated with a secondary pressure peak in the west region. Our results show that current tSZ facilities have now reached the angular resolution and sensitivity to allow an exploration of the details of pressure substructures in clusters, even at high redshift. This opens the possibility to quantify the impact of the dynamical state on the relation between the tSZ signal and the mass of clusters, which is important when using tSZ clusters to test cosmological models. This work also marks the first NIKA cluster sample data release. Description: The surface brightness maps of the 6 clusters obtained with NIKA at the IRAM 30-meter telescope at 150 GHz are presented together with the necessary data products to use them. They were obtained between November 2012 and February 2015. In the case of the cluster RX J1347.5-1145, the map can only be used qualitatively and the extra data products do not apply. The 150GHz bandpass is provided. The maps FWHM angular resolution is 18.2" and we provide the beam profile. Due to the scanning strategy, the noise rms is relatively constant in the central 80" radius but rapidly increase towards the edge. Noise Monte Carlo realization are provided to address the noise properties. Scales larger than 2' are filtered during the data reduction and the corresponding transfer functions are is provided. The clusters fields are contaminated by point sources and we provide best-fit point source models. The cluster MACS J0717.5+3745 is affected by kinetic SZ signal and we provide a best-fit model to correct for it. The image coordinates can be found in the FITS header. Units are mJy/beam.
