Turtle Tale 

 

Are you a retro gamer? Do you like playing older video games? Do you wish there was new development on older systems? What about development of older kinds of games on newer systems? That is exactly what Turtle Tale is on the Nintendo 3DS.

This hand held downloadable only video game (sorry your family can not purchase this game at your local video game store and support your local community) is a new release done in the retro style. So do not expect modern graphics or game play from Turtle Tale.

Graphically Turtle Tale would fit somewhere in the 16-bit era in my estimation. Maybe as far back as the 8-bit era. You can look at the pictures and make your own determination. We play a turtle with a super soaker gun. That is what it looks like to me.

Our turtle character in Turtle Tale will shoot water at the other animals. This will make them go away. Want to know something really odd about Turtle Tale? Our turtle will lose a life if he falls into the water. Yes our turtle is not able to swim. Which is strange since turtles swim in water all the time in the real world.

There are five different areas in Turtle Tale. Players must progress through them to stop the pirate monkeys. Turtle Tale starts really easy, and gets more difficult as the players progress. Numerous animals are used in the various areas. In fact aside from a change here or there, much of Turtle Tale felt the same.

As far as side scrolling 2D shooters go, Turtle Tale is tame. We shoot water at them. Hit them with enough water and they leave the screen. It did not feel like killing to me. My problem with Turtle Tale is the controls felt rigid. There are also cheap hits that will knock you into the water. Which is an instant kill, and go back to the last continuation point.
