Skippy's Adventure Begins
Clack, Clack, Clack rattles Skippy's door and wakes him up from his afternoon nap. Skippy is a middle aged turtle, once world famous for his ability to slide and skip across any surface is now enjoying his retirement years from the sport. As he opens the door he can see his friends gathered together outside talking in a hushed tone. "Do you think he still has it?" "What if he says no?" "Are you sure he is qualified for this?" As Skippy opens the door you can see behind him all of his awards, pictures with foreign diplomats, medals, and trophies displayed all over his home. He asks, "What is going on out here? I am trying to get some rest before my announcer job at Wave Rock's skipping competition." All eyes turn to Skippy. Hops, the legendary red kangaroo exclaims, "Skippy we need your help!" And thus our adventure begins...
At the request of his friends Skippy has decided to come out of retirement and assemble the crew back together for one last adventure. Salty, the menacing saltwater crocodile and his minions are back from exile from the harsh Australian Outback and have started to take over the water supply from the other animals by constructing a water system that will effect the Land Down Under. Skippy and his team are their last hope to get things back to normal again.
What is Skippy's Goal in Skipping Turtles?
Your goal is to navigate Skippy along water slides, tunnels, pipes, and make sure you are on the lookout for hidden underground levels. Skippy needs to collect as many shells as he can as well as open the water plugs to release the water back to where it belongs and away from Salty's fortress. As you embark on Skippy's adventure there will be additional characters you will face as well as meet more of Skippy's friends who can help you succeed defeating Salty and his minions. Additional shells with unique powers will also be available as well as the chance to unlock levels. It will be 2D side scrolling game with intuitive controls for jumping and changing velocity to increase height and distance off of slide and pipes. Skippy can't wait for you to help him defeat Salty!

Who we are and the inspiration for Skipping Turtles?
Kevin and Steve have been working on Skipping Turtles for close to a year now in one form or another. When Leap To Mobile was created late last year it was time to get serious about developing Skipping Turtles.
The inspiration for Skipping Turtles came while Kevin was fishing in OK. He thought why not create a mobile game starring a turtle as the hero who saves the day from a much larger foe. Kevin has lived in Australia and want to begin begin Skippy's adventure in the beautiful country of Australia.

What Will Kickstarter Funds Be Used For?
We have started the design and development process for Skipping Turtles. We have chosen to utilize Kickstarter to assist us in raising the additional funds needed to fully design and develop Skipping Turtles for OUYA, iOS, and Android. We hope to raise more than our goal so we can create additional levels, work on the back story of Skippy and introduce new characters. We will be creating hidden levels within the game, additional shells that can be utilized on certain levels and enemies. We also have some exciting stretch goals if we reach our initial goal before campaign ends.
We sincerely appreciate everyone's support and could not do this without your help.
