NOTE: There is a 'failed to load' popup that occurs the first time you play that is causing some confusion - it's due to an old online highscore system, OpenFeint, that no longer exists - simply hit OK and then close the window to get going on your hurdle journey! We will soon be updating the game to remove this issue.

The hit game arrives on your iPhone/iPod Touch! Now you can take the action with you anywhere!

This retro-styled arcade game will keep you jumping and your fingers twitching as you compete for the best distance while trying to keep Hurdle Turtle from wiping out on a zany hurdles course! For this turtle, it's all about pure speed and sweet spin jumps!

bad update

cascadian dan

this WAS my favorite iphone game, until one of the updates. maybe the update from 3gs to 4/4s retina is to blame, and now it's seemingly become an entirely different game. the joystick is now uselessly difficult to move. it's like it's way too loose and not sensitive enough. once i get to around 200m, the brick walls start killing me because the joystick is so unresponsive it takes about 1 full second to move your turtle from the top to the bottom of the screen = you will die at 200m. since the update that ruined the joystick, this has become a waste of 99 cents.

A pure masterpiece


When I had first bought the app, I was a little suspicious, but after playing it, I found myself extremely addicted. The music is good, the 8-bit style is purely nostalgic, and the gameplay is smooth. An amazing buy!
