Turtle Unlock.jpg

This library originated from Touch Lua and scripts using it will only work correctly in Touch Lua.

turtle is a Touch Lua library. It costs $2.99 to unlock and was introduced in the 1.2 update for Touch Lua. It is similar to the draw library, but there are differences.

The turtle library allows for drawing graphics using a relative cursor called the "turtle" on a special screen that is the counterpart to the graphics screen, where as the draw library allows real time graphics, touch tracking, and more on the actual graphics screen.
