Hey all you retro gaming fans!

"Slow and steady wins the race?" That's for chumps! For this turtle, it's all about pure speed and sweet spin jumps! This is an online version of our hit 8-Bit Xbox Live Indie Game, Hurdle Turtle! The object is simple.. survive this brutal hurdle course as long as you can while Hurdle Turtle goes as fast as hit little legs can carry him!

See if you can make it onto the global leaderboards, as well as earn all of the medals!

Controls:

Arrow keys .. Move around
Spacebar .. Jump
Enter .. Pause game

You can find the Xbox version (which contains additional difficulty settings, levels and multiplayer!) here:

Pretty but monotonous..

The idea and the style are pretty, but the game is monotonous!

That's one sweaty turtle

I can see the sweat pouring off that pixely skin. So simple yet, the simplicity mixed with the medals makes you want to keep playing to get them. I continued untill i got 200 and i only just got it.
Quite a hard game at the later speeds, it's impossible to get over some of the hurdles when you're going so fast and are presented with 4+ hurdles in a row.


Holmfry responds:

Not impossible! Hold down the spacebar and jump forward to take two at a time, moving backward as you touch the ground just before the second jump. :)

Glad you had fun! Thanks for playing and congrats on the 200m medal! As the medal states, that's impressive!

Pretty Nice!

This reminds me of battletoads. It really does. A bit simple, but fun to play.
