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:

- Frontpage!!! Woohoo, thanks Tom! :) Also, daily 6th!
- Latest version now live, which adds score/hiscore display to the Game Over screen so you can better keep track of how you did! Keep hurdlin'! (Clear browser cache to ensure you're seeing the latest version)
- Also.. how the heck did someone get 521m? Honestly, are you some sort of robot sent back from the future to destroy us all with your mad hurdling skillz?

Those seeking the 300m challenge:

- Never move away from the middle. The outer lanes are not needed at all. Going there only makes harder to navigate walls.
- Get used to hurdles back to back. Either jump early to land faster or jump late to go over both.
- There is "pause scumming" in this game, if all else fails...
