You’ve just inherited a big problem.

Turtle Problem is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon clearing a room, spawns a turtle familiar.
    • Turtles can block bullets and deal contact damage to enemies. They will die if they take a certain amount of damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Synergy.png Turtle Solutions - If the player has Super Space Turtle, each room clear will add another Super Space Turtle to a maximum of 4. These Super Space Turtles will no longer block bullets or collide with enemies. Dropping either item removes all active turtles.
    • If the player also has Yellow Chamber, the spawned turtles will be jammed.
  • If the player has Baby Good Mimic, it will become a turtle familiar, but will not add more turtles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The item was originally cut from the main game, but reintroduced in A Farewell to Arms.
  • Likely a reference to the great god Om in Terry Pratchett's Small Gods.
  • Could also be a reference to the quote "It's turtles all the way down," which is often used to express a code problem that has many complex layers. This would explain the statement "You’ve just inherited a big problem," since often in enterprise software, developers inherit a lot of complex code with complex problems.
  • The turtles can be stunned and killed with Grappling Hook.
