A Turtle Race Game

For the NES Game Jam - I picked my all time favorite NES game - ExciteBike to emulate.  But instead of dirt bikes, I used turtles, and in place of oil slicks I used heads of lettuce to slow my turtles down.  

Why? I don't know - seemed like a cute idea at the time.

I used Unity 2017.1 to make the game, and Photoshop and AfterEffects to make the art and animations.
Music - "Itty Bitty 8 Bit" Kevin MacLeod https://incompetech.com/
Sound effects - Brand Name Audio https://soundcloud.com/brand-name-audio

All my well-commented code:

My blog about the game development: 

Things that I might do later on:
-- add an animation for rolling down the hills if you are going too fast.
-- randomly spawn the obstacles
-- let the NPC turtles change lanes arbitrarily   

Hope you enjoy it!
