Description

The Turtle is is a collection of four retro-themed arcade games presented as running in a fake emulator for a non-existent console of the 1980s, the Turtle 2000.

  • Rad Road -There's only one road that will get you to Las Vegas fast enough for your liking: The Rad Road. Unfortunately there are a number of dangers preventing your travel that you'll have to maneuver your auto around, such as reckless drivers on their way back, likely under the influence. As you avoid them it will be in your interests to collect 1-UPs to ensure your preservation, and point bonuses to add to your score. Two difficulty options are provided, each with mild differences in their gameplay.

  • Saving San Francisco - Random fleets of unidentified fighter pilots are descending on San Francisco for no clearly apparent reason and you're all that can stop them. Manning a defensive turret you'll have to shoot each of the targets out of the sky, as well as any bombs they might drop. For each target that you destroy much needed additional ammunition will be provided, while each that escapes will cost you. Shooting falling stars will provide an upgrade to your gun. If you fail, San Francisco falls.

  • Sincretic - A one player variation on Pong, the difference being that an additional paddle has been added to the top and bottom, requiring that the ball be balanced onscreen regardless of where it might next bounce. There are three different gameplay modes, each offering a slight variation on aspects such as the speed of the ball.

  • Destroying San Francisco - The "sequel" to Saving San Francisco, this time tasking you as an invader in place of a savior. As with the previous game ammunition is a valuable commodity, restored with each hit on the enemy, and lost with each hit on an ally plane. Upgrades to the player's bombs are gained as more of San Francisco's tanks are destroyed.
