Out today, TurtleStrike brings iOS and Android gamers a new, turn-based strategy game with over 80,000 combinations of weaponized, armored turtle warfare. You’ll get Tesla coils and kamikaze turtles, a missile named Big Bertha, and the chance to compete in tournaments that have real monetary rewards.

Sound like fun? You bet your shell it does.

TurtleStrike is a multiplayer strategy game starring turtles armed with deadly weapons and hardened armor, with live turn-based play that is timed and simultaneous, meaning you won’t have to wait for a slow opponent ever again.

Developer eeGon believes in the game so much that it has put $5,000 up for the jackpot in the Red Tide Tournament. Anyone who downloads TurtleStrike can enter, and one player will win a $3,000 grand prize. Second place wins one lucky player $1,000, while third place will net you $500. Fourth and fifth place get $500 each, and many other players will get large sums of in-game currency.

Given that the game is free to play, what have you got to lose? Nothing, that’s what. Here’s a trailer to make that point even clearer:

The environments are gorgeous, and the turtles are adorably square-ish. You’ll start out with catapults and missiles, with the option to shield yourself or move instead. Once you start a quick match with a random player, or invite your friends to a match, you’ll get to play out a battle within a defined area of the ocean. Kill all their turtles and win. Lose yours and, well, the game names you Loser. You’re able to purchase upgrades from an in-game store, of course, with in-game currency, which can be bought with real money.

For a free little turn-based game, TurtleStrike has a lot going for it, not to mention those sweet prizes. Give it a shot on the App Store or Google Play today and let us know what you think.
