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:

- 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...

YES!! Excellent tips!


I got to 300 something on my first try. I love this game. It's so simple.

I got 287 whyyyyy,soo close

Great Game

The simple controls and great graphics makes for a very fun experience. The speed also makes a very fun challenge. Although after playing a bunch of Sonic games for many years I'm kinda already used to the speed. People should play this game a little more often. Its great competitive fun. By the way, in case anyone was wondering, NO HACKS were done in the making of my play through. I respect this game too much to interfere with its configurations. (If i knew how, lol.) Great game and fun to play. See ya!
