Hurdle Turtle 2: Let the retro action continue!

Hurdle Turtle 2: Let the retro action continue!
A sequel has just been released, Hurdle Turtle 2: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Hurdle-Turtle-2/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d80258550dd1
Call it a 'fossil in time', this game faithfully reproduces the sweet 8-bit graphics, MIDI music/sfx, and gameplay of very early video games from the last century (20th cent.). A must-have for all retro-lovers here. US$1; suitable for all family members/ages; up to 4 local players can play together; the latest game sequel, Hurdle Turtle 2, now has upgraded graphics, new levels, and for the first time ever, Hurdle Turtle swims, and much more...

Simple but fun

Hurdle Turtle isn't revolutionary, but it definitely brings back the impossible nightmares of the old Battle Toads NES game, and just like that old game, will school you in pain just the same.

As a Turtle, you are constantly racing towards the right, while dodging walls (or animals and dinosaurs) and jumping over tripping hazards (or trees and more dinosaurs). The basic gameplay is simple (especially when played on the easy difficulty), but the difficulty quickly ramps up, as the screen begins to scroll faster and faster, demanding quicker and more precise reactions. With only three mistakes (lives) per stage, you really need to master your reaction times to make a respectable high score, which, sadly, is local-only. Thankfully, your co-op buddy can provide a good challenge, and you two can race through the three difficulties together, trying to outpace the other.

I was disappointed that there wasn't some level of unlockable (perhaps a backwards mode, upsidedown mode, or simply an additional thematic level), but the game as it stands is definitely worth 80 MSPoints if you like twitch gaming, and that trailer has got to be worth the entry price alone.
