Whats up Dinos...
Here's the latest from Pixeljam. We hope the NG crowd enjoys it.

MULTIPLAYER mode is at xgenstudios.com/play/dino run. Race your friends!
If you donate any amount to pixeljam, you get 50+ hats/helmets for your dino + many new colors, which show up in Multiplayer as well: pixeljam.com/donations.

If the game looks weird or wont show a link, try the pop-up version.
INTEL MAC USERS: use Safari. Firefox will not play this game well.

All the basics can be found in HOW TO PLAY, but here are some pointers anyway:

Escape the pyroclastic wall of doom and find your dino sanctuary!
AWSD or Arrow keys move the dino. Or use a combo of both.
SHIFT key gives you a speed boost, which recharges every 20 seconds or so.
Press down while jumping for an air attack. Useful for many things.
You must duck to eat things on the ground.

The game can be played in CHALLENGE or SPEEDRUN mode. It defaults to challenge, which is a collection of 7 levels. Speedruns can be unlocked and chosen in the OPTIONS screen. You need Bones to unlock speedruns (and buy goodies). You get bones by eating critters and reaching milestones.

Earn DNA by collecting eggs and eating critters. Use your DNA to upgrade your dino.
The game auto-saves. You have 3 slots open for different dinos.

The game is DEEP so EXPLORE and have fun!

lvl selector!!

very very nice game, the only bad thing is the lack of a lvl selector, after ppl have beaten the game, it's extremely annoying to do every lvl over again just trying to get a certain collection item. besides that, great game.

Very good game

I played this for probably five or six hours. I unlocked and completed all the speedruns except Planet D. I did the challenge mode on insane.

But I still can't find the Bronto egg. I'm on the verge of becoming an hero over this.

I digress. The game, I thought, was fantastic. As people said, the graphics could be better, but it wouldn't be pixeljam really if they were.
For a Flash game, it had incredible replay value and depth, better than 95% of flash games I'd say.
