Turtle Dash: You’re a turtle with wings! Yes, you are now a new mythical creature that is going through a dangerous jungle filled with spikes to save your baby turtles because they went to land instead of the sea… Poor baby turtles…
Objective: The main aim of turtle dash is to travel through an obstacle course of ground spikes and pick up little turtles on your way. Your job is to jump up and glide above these spikes instead of having them puncture your green shell whilst also trying to save the baby turtles which are afloat in mid-air. It’s an unlimited 2D world that you’ll keep rolling and gliding through forever, and the longer you’re alive, the more spikes that will appear to stop you!
Gameplay: Turtle dash features a headless greenshelled creature with the ability to fly… it kind of reminds me of Winged Kooper from Mario… anyway, in this simple game you won’t be dashing … instead gliding is a more suitable word to describe what you’re actually doing.
Turtle dash is a never-ending obstacle course and every time you pick up a baby turtle you’re awarded 200 points. These points let you unlock achievements to help make the game more interesting and varied. To jump you tap once, and a second tap will make you glide. You can hold your gliding ability for a maximum of 3 -4 seconds before you get tired and drop back down again… but here’s a little secret: if you tap again very quickly during your drop then you’ll glide for another 3-4 seconds. Whilst you’re gliding you’ll slowly drift towards the ground so eventually you will have to land.
The graphics aren’t made to attract hardcore gamers and the colours are dull and merge together. I also get the feeling of motion sickness when I play the game because the background moves far slower than the floor. Something important to mention is that when you glide you will sound like a choir composed of farm animals particularly of cows and sheep. When you pick up a baby you will hear this sharp squeal… please leave a comment of what you think it sounds like when you jump…
Rating: 1/5: The graphics are pretty dire and the storyline is tragic. Being handicapped by motion sickness isn’t great either… all in all this means I can’t play this game continuously for long periods of time. It’s just not something I’d recommend.
So… you’re probably thinking why we reviewed this game… well sometimes we all need reminders to show us how excellent Jetpack Joyride and Monster Crew are.
