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:

Thank you so much, glad you liked it! :) The Xbox one has more variety in levels but this one has medals!

I'm just trying to beat the guy who wiped out my high score, I think he might be some kind of robot with skillz like that!

Well...

Its alright, dont get me wrong, the only thing that i didnt like is that you had to get extremely close to the hurdle to pass over it as well as other minor things.

Thanks for the review! You can also run forward while jumping to get some extra distance, that helps as you get further along.

It was entertaining.

but when the song ended it got a little boring, maybe you should make it loop.

Hey, thanks for checking out my game!

Normally the music does loop, turns out it was a problem after pausing the game.. thanks for letting me know! :) I uploaded a fix, you might have to refresh your browser cache to play the new version.
