Rated 5 / 5 stars

My Distance Record, nearly 7 million feet.

My record for distance is 6,989,164 feet.
I managed to get 12 extra shots for my Golden Gun and kept him going!

I've bought everything in the game, and I have all 20 of the Newgrounds medals for this game, and all 40 in-game achievements.

My distance without extra Golden Gun ammo was 3,002,142 feet

This game is very fun and I enjoyed all the elements I was presented with. The only way this game could get any better is if there were extra enemies at farther distances. Or any distance for that matter.
I will admit it's very, VERY easy with the Tank cannon and Golden Gun, but it's satisfying to watch your turtle go into space and fly thousands of feet per second in one shot, which can be done even if your turtle is barely moving. For the record, I got the 100 miles medal with a Gold Cannon and sniper rifle.

Having 20 Newgrounds medals and 40 in-game achievements made this game more fun to play, as it gave you more of a reason to play and more to go for.

Even better was the Smash Brothers style bonus cash awards for single-run achievements, which involved hitting certain numbers of certain enemies, and how the run ended.

You had relative control of your turtle and could press forward or back to press on harder, or to hold back, to allow you to at least attempt to avoid deadly spikes and grab powerups and hit desired objects. Would have been much less fun if you were just a sitting duck.

Upgrades, achievements, control of character (left and right), gun to fire at will to help avoid hazards and collect bonuses, and award systems. This is a winning combination that should set the standard for future launching games.

This game rocks, one problem it glitches a lot I shoot my turtle then the screen goes black until he stops or the camera gets stuck int the sky and the HUD disappears until he stops. besides that this game totally rocks some socks >.<
