I LIKE TURTLES!!!!!!!

where are the zombies? but really this is a very cool game. I like the simple idea for this game and that although it is simple it is still challenging because of the speed factor. Nice presentation overall as well with the retro feel.

great game

The only prob is that when your moving fast the walls look like they are more. Then I get confused on where they are. Because if there more then one it becomes a prob real quick. But besides that everything is great.

I dig it

Any chance I can get the name of the song played during actual gameplay? I'm sure it's been asked earlier but I don't feel like searching through all those. All around great time-burner though, A+.

Thanks for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

No problem on the track, just hit up Octapus' profile on 8-bit Collective here: http://8bc.org/members/Octapus/ (remove any spaces in the link). The track you're looking for is called Murman, although all his music is pure epic win!

Thanks again! :)
