A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Create sequenced paths to guide data-carrying robots.

Overview

TurtleHack is a technical themed puzzle problem-solving game. In TurtleHack you will create sequenced paths to guide repetitions of data-carrying robots.

  • PROGRAM THROUGH MOVEMENT:
    • Use your actions to create paths that will guide sequences of robots to complete your goals.
  • DYNAMIC SOLUTIONS :
    • Modify as you go. Interrupt, modify, and change solutions as the level progresses. 
  • INTEGER ARITHMETIC:
    • Utilize the quirks of integer mathematics to get the data you need.
  • ZACH-LIKE:
    • Inspired by the great work of the Zachtronics games company.

Bugs

The game is quite stable in its current state.  Known bugs:

  • There is one rare game-breaking bug, where you start to move more that one space at a time, that requires a level reset.
  • There are multiple minor visual glitches.

About

TurtleHack development started mid-September and has been my primary focus up until its version 1 release. It was a wild 12 weeks of intense development.

This is not an early access game and it is unlikely that I will be able to give it my full attention moving forward. That said I do still plan on expanding the content and fixing bugs as I find them.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
- Ben.
