If you like this game, please take a second to visit /games/pixeljamgames/dino -run
(take out the spaces in that url)
and rate it. The dinos need your support! :)

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

MULTIPLAYER mode is at 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:

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!

My god...

I'm loving every second of this game. The excellent gameplay and retro feel make me want to unlock everything!!!

It's a shame the multiplayer can't be hosted on ng though...

You know....

....I have been playing the games you guys put out for years and you never dissapoint. But this game OMFG, guys outdid yourselves with this one. File this as number one on the list of Atari 2600 games I would have liked to have seen in the late seventies. Spruce up that retro style with updated graphics and speed nad this is the result. A true classic,..and addicting as hell itself.

Why Can't I Stop

This game is so addicting!!! Everything about this flash is good. The animation. The plot. The replayability. The only thing I don't understand is, why isn't there multiplayer on NewGrounds?
