    We are excited to announce our upcoming game for iOS and Android. Skipping Turtles will be an exciting adventure game.

    Skippy, a world famous skipping turtle has hung up his shell to enjoy retirement. He has heard rumors of Salty, the notorious salt water crocodile coming back from exile from the harsh outback of Australia. As he was relaxing, he could hear voices outside and then heard a knock at the door. He opened the door and saw a group of his friends with concerned looks on their faces.

    Hops, a large red kangaroo explained to Skippy that Salty was back from exile and had brought back his minions to help him. Salty's plan is to reroute all the water to his exiled land through pipes and water slides, making it impossible for the other animals to survive without their precious water resources. Skippy's friends need him to come out of retirement and team up with his lifelong friend Snap, an alligator snapping turtle, to defeat Salty and restore peace again to the animals of Australia.




    Join Skippy and his friends as they take on Salty in the Land Down Under.

    This your first title? Wow, as soon as I saw this thread, I knew it would be a keeper! I've signed up on your official website, and just got my email to confirm. I have not liked your FaceBook page just yet, but I will get round to it. What release date are you planning on releasing the game? Will it be this month?

    Hey skeletonlord,

    Thank you for your support! We are very excited for this release. We hope to launch by the end of summer. We want to make sure it is done right before we release it.

    Feel free to ask any questions and share with others. Here is a shot of Skippy.

    This looks good, but the gameplay looks maybe a little simple? Could you tell me more about the controls?

    Updated Trailer for Skipping Turtles for iOS (new content)

    Hi LOLavi,

    We have added a new trailer, giving a better look at the challenging gameplay. You will notice as he collects his 5th shell, the shell on his back changes as he enters the tube taking him to the underground level.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Big Announcement

    Due to an overwhelming response from everyone we have decided to extend the development of Skipping Turtles, offering additional levels, characters, and shells providing Skippy and Snap additional abilities. We have decided to utilize Kickstarter to fund the remainder of our design and development. Thank you or your support and time.

    Thank you for your comments. There will be multiple controls for speed/velocity and jumping. The additional levels we are working on will provide some challenging game play.
