Toss the Turtle is a Flash game submitted by Foreverkul and Gonzossm on August 17, 2009, with music from MaestroRage. It is a toss game along the lines of Kitten Cannon!. The game revolves around shooting a turtle out of a cannon and trying to reach the furthest distance possible. The game was remarkable upon release due to the variety of methods for doing so: the cannon's power was controlled manually, the turtle could be steered to hit or avoid obstacles, firearms could be used to keep the turtle in the air, and special items such as rockets, Nuclear weapons, and bombs could be purchased. The game also featured an internal Medal system in addition to supporting Newgrounds Medals.
