Good Luck!

How to play(Courtesy of Gerry Brophy):

 

controls

run left or right

hold up and to the right or left to swim up.

hit button 1 to jump

button 2 to spin attack monkeys or black devils or the shark

hold down to go into turtle shield mode. You are safe but you might still drown

 

every living thing kills you

goats & birds & red devils are invulnerable ... just dont try

coconuts kill you

pitchforks kill you

boulders kill you

spikes kill you

birds kill you

 

air gauge means you must surface for air every once in a while or use a trapped air pocket if in the underwater caves

 

Goals

Collect all 5 PEARL letter pearls (you have to kill the monkeys & black devils to get them to release them by spin attacking them)

Eat all the red fishies

Don't get killed

 

Scoring is 800 for a black devil

i think 400 or 500 for a pearl

50 per fish

a good score is above 10,000. If you were to get all the pearls and complete the game (unlikely on level 3) you would probably break 20,000

I am extremely pleased and honored that Mr. Gerry Brophy the programmer of Mr. Turtle is releasing his ROM here for play. Thus I will be extending this round a bit so we can take some time to play this game. Thanks, Gerry!

[skill 3]: 3,050 pts. Looks like the spin attack only works when your feet are not on the ground. This is a fun and interesting game, but those red goats are trouble when their line of sight is below you and they're on a small cliff between you and a hole. When their line of sight is above me, it's easy to trick them into charging towards you by simply jumping straight up, but they're troublesome when you have to jump across holes when their line of sight is below you.

There is a trick. If you jump and hold up while over a cloud you can hanging on the cloud as long as you are holding up and even move left and right.

 

I'll do a partial video of the level in a day or so

funny game!

It seems like the game takes a break now and again from responding to the joystick.

 

I suppose according to the instructions given above, fishies are not living things. So is that why they don't have any feelings??

looks like the goat head butted you right inside the cliff facing.

 

the easy level is good to practice on. it's considerably easier but not suitable for competition.

yep, that he did!

this game is so funny like that, very "glitchy." I've gotten knocked in and out of the terrain, into next tuesday and took the monkey pies with me.

 

btw, can you kill the monkeys? I can't seem to reach them.

all monkeys can be killed . not all monkeys need be killed, some monkeys might have a pearl. skip the first monkey on the platform you come across.

 

i'll post that video tomorrow. i won't show the whole level but enough. even with hints you will still need arcade skill

I find too many games are made for casual these days. I made it pretty hard. I actually have a hard time with it too.

 

Easy level should be winable as there are less enemies and the map is linear left to right with no secret areas.

 

10,700

I keep dying at the black tunnel area where you have to jump up and over the goats
