    It’s a nice effort, but I hope that Saturnine Games makes a deeper experience for their next game.

    At its low price point, Turtle Tale is an entirely functional platforming adventure from a small indie studio that you can breeze through in a day or two.

    There is nothing to say about a game that promises very little and aims very low. This is a low-cost, low-ambition, low-achievement title - there are no significant problems, but its margin is so narrow that there's no space to do anything else other having a short-lived entertaining run that won't take long to finish.

    Turtle Tale winds up being a game that shows some promise for fans of retro action platformers, but the lack of depth and variety create an experience where fun gives way to repetition far too quickly.

    Even at just shy of three quid, this feels like poor value. Small developers should be taking these opportunities to create interesting and worthwhile ideas, not pointless relics like Turtle Tale that belong on a Mastertronic cassette in the darkest recesses of gaming’s past.

    Turtle Tale is uninspired, boring, and repetitive, but deep down it hides a very simple, yet playable action platformer.
  7. No ambition, love or visible original thought has gone into this miserable shell of a game. [Aug 2014, p.86]
