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!


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

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

Have fun, and good luck!

- 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?



Really good game! Sadly i cant even get past 100. :(. But still very good game!

Thanks so much for the review! It's awesome you're enjoying it. :D Honestly, I thought the same thing about hackers at first, but the dude in 2nd place (who was in first for a long while) actually had a video posted for a while on youtube of his playthrough - it was fairly epic. ;)

Thanks for playing!


The game is nice and fun, but the main reason I'm playing this is the INCREDIBLE CHIPMUSIC!!! Good luck with the xbox sale!

Thanks!! :D Glad you're having fun!

My boy Octapus is a very talented musician, for sure :) Check out the soundtrack for the Xbox games here: http://octapus.bandcamp.com/album/hur dle-turtle (remove any spaces)

Hahaha great

It's actually pretty fun, at the beginning it's like ''Meh too slow I'll count the pixels or something'' and then you're like ''OHMYGOD SLOW DOWN DAMMIT TURTLES AREN'T THIS FAST'' hahaha, no seriously, this is wonderful. Also it's a simple, but good concept!

If I had an Xbox 360 I would SO buy it! Very good and recommendable game in my opinion.

Thank you SO much for the review and for playing! :D You made my day! If you have an iPhone, it's also available there :) Glad you enjoyed it!


You did a good job with making the game feel "retro". It's not a bad game, kinda fun, definitely something I'd play on the NES or something. The overall gameplay increases with progress, and becomes more and more entertaining. Also, the music is fucking CATCHY.
