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!



Rated 5 / 5 stars


Absolutely amazing. This is definitely up there with Alien Hominid and some of the other great action games. I've played a few of these games before, but in no other can you really take as much control as you can in this game. When you evole, it's subtle, but effective. Great game 10/10.

I love this game, it has fantastic physics, it was VERY well thought out, it was very deep, lots of secrets and hidden passages, very fun upgrade system.. etc etc.. but the one thing i HATED was, the dom surfing. it said i was only surfing for 30 seconds, but when i gout out, it said 68 seconds until doom, i was at 67 surfing every second. other than THAT, it was absolutely flawless! :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars

So much fun!

This was extremely fun, I loved the physics, the different paths, when meteors would blow up the ground right next to you, how while youre running you can grab and eat pretty much anything smaller then you. One thought though, maybe you could be a little less harsh about the deaths, make it every 15 eggs instead
