It's “World Turtle Day” - who remembers Stern's Turtles arcade game?

When you say Turtles, people think of mutant ninja teenagers, but don't forget about Konami's Turtles published by Stern!
In 1981 Stern published an arcade game called "Turtles" in which your turtle navigates the floors of a building collecting baby turtles and delivering then to their homes while avoiding beetles. It's a maze game in which you progress floor by floor. Aside from avoidance, your best move is to drop a bomb that briefly stuns the pesky beetles.

Be kind to animals and play lots of video games!
