Turtle Quest is a game based on a baby turtle hatching from its egg and needing to get to the sea.
You play the baby turtle as you negotiate obstacles and predators. You were born with a bung leg, but that doesn't hold you back in life. Your struggle is real, as are the dangers, but so is the reward.
You can play defensively by tucking in your shell and hiding under objects. Tucking into your shell will protect you from crabs. Hiding under objects will give you shelter from seagulls. Or you can go on the offense with exploding turtle poo or with baby turtle calls. That's right, little baby turtle exploding poo, because that's how it is. You can also use turtle calls to find food and go on the offensive. Either way strategy is key because like a real baby turtle, you only have one life.
As a tiny baby turtle getting stuck on objects is a possibility and means certain death as you become helpless. Sometimes, you might get lucky and struggle your way off... predators are everywhere.
Beware of your nemesis, The Seagull, he will snatch you away. If he appears your only option is to hide, or run. You will know he is around when you hear the seagull call. Befriend a fly for an extra life bonus against being eaten.
Turtle Quest has a unique game play style. To get the most out of it, reading the in-game information in the "Quest Info" section is highly recommended.
