One Trick Turtle - by Grinder Monkey

Hey Everyone,
We are Grinder Monkey Games, a group of three friends living in three different states attempting to make fun, challenging and visually pleasing iOS games.

I am excited to share some progress of our first game, One Trick Turtle. We are coming into the home stretch of development and will hopefully have it wrapped up in a week or so.

The basics of the game are that you're this turtle and you have to jump landmass to landmass without falling to your death. Sounds easy enough, wrong. There is a small window where you have to tap to jump to make it to the next landmass without over or under jumping it. The landmasses shoot a crossed the screen randomly in 5 different sizes at a fast pace, so there's no time for error.

It's a fun little game to challenge your friends with. We've also added the ability to unlock different worlds. Oh and did i mention the teleporting?! Throughout the game there are hidden portals, so as you're falling to your death you might just find yourself warping through a portal to a new world and a second chance at life.

Here is a shot of the opening menu.. I'll update with more pics soon, as well as a video of the game play.

Looks cool! Love the art, very polished. Do the different environments have different physics? For instance does the turtle move faster on the ice levels due to less friction?

Hey 1pxOff, thanks for the comment.

The physics stay consistent throughout the game no matter which world you're in. It's just a visual change.

Our designer was messing around the other day and whipped up this! To bad we don't have the legal rights to add the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the game.
