HomeNewsNew Turtle Tale Screenshots + Info Joey Burns March 5, 2014 News The kind people at Saturnine Games has provided us with some sweet screen of their awesome upcoming eShop games “Turtle Tale”. Here’s a quick outline of the game * The island has been invaded by Captain O’Haire and his gang of pirates. You play as Shelldon, a turtle armed with a water gun, on a mission to defeat the pirates. * Classic 2D platformer run & jump gameplay, perfect for fans of classic NES/SNES games. * 30 levels spread across 5 unique areas of the island. With Turtle Tale, we wanted to go back to the basics and make a game that focuses just on classic platformer mechanics. We broke away from the sci-fi themes we used before and went with a bright, colorful look and a lighthearted feel. The game sticks to jump & shoot gameplay, played over 5 different areas of the island. Each area features a different types of enemies & challenges. The main game features 15 levels, with an additional 15 harder levels unlocked if players collect all the fruit in every level. The game felt like a natural fit on the 3DS. Each level features several layers of parallax scrolling backgrounds, adds a great sense of depth when played with the 3D on. Particle effects use the 3D as well, popping in and out of the screen. Some levels feature rain, which really looks nice in 3D. As a big fan of side-scrollers. I’m really looking forward to this one! If you scan this QR code with you 3DS, it’ll take you to a side with 3D screenshots. Which is always cool. Tell us what you think in the comments below! Share this post: No related posts.
