BLACK TURTLE MINER

This Black Turtle variant was created during May of 2005. It is a route-finding game similar to dozens of other games. This one, however, incorporates several icons which relate to the Black Turtle concept and Black Turtle: Goat Roping Heathens, in particular.

ICONS:
You are awarded ten points for each green alien you pull out of the mine.
You lose ten points for each red alien you are unable to avoid.
A bag of gold is worth five points.
Running into a bundle of dynamite will cost you five points.
A penny is worth one point, as you might expect.
A single stick of dynamite will deduct one point from your point total.


MOVING THE TURTLE:

The turtle can only move horizontally (side to side) or vertically (up and down). But beware of vertical shafts. Traversal over a shaft will cause your turtle to fall to its death and you will lose all your points. Your goal is to get the turtle to the upper, left corner.


RATING:

At the end of the game you will receive one of these ratings depending on how skillfully you played the game:

  1. TURTLE GOD --> 200 or more points
  2. SUPREME TURTLE --> 150 to 199 points
  3. GREAT TURTLE --> 120 to 149 points
  4. ORDINARY TURTLE --> 90 to 119 points
  5. LOWLY TURTLE --> 50 to 89 points
  6. DEAD TURTLE --> 49 or fewer points
