Game Impressions

Pretty cute and clever so far. Tilt to move your turtle and tap on the screen to fire your shell toward wherever you tapped. Tossing your shell in this way is how you take out the baddies, but as you only have the one shell it is your job to then pick it back up. You try to run over lettuce leaves and snails while avoiding contact with everything else. Grabbing a snail will give you a power-up (some cool effect to your shell) and I think the lettuce leaves are a way to earn extra lives.

Knocking out more than one enemy in a single shell toss can earn your massive bonus points!

5/5

That is the cutest turtle I have ever seen!
