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!

A flash masterpiece. I've bought the complete version (dino run SE) because pixeljam really made a great and addictive game.

Dino run is a great game. Its simple, fun, and challenging. this game shows that you don't need fancy graphics to make a game its the gameplay that matters. This game earns 5 stars a very great game.

I love this game. Even after all of this time, it stills feels so simple, fresh, and fun. Easily one of the best and most enjoyable games on this website. My only complaint is that this doesn't have medals tied to it now.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love this game so much. It makes me really nostalgic because I would play this game for hours on miniclip when I was younger. I'm really glad to have found it on newgrounds.
