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 4.5 / 5 stars

Hello everyone, my name is "Rotor" and this is my first review. : )

I really enjoyed the game, It's simple, addicting and fun. I recommend this game if you just want to pass time and enjoy some indie games, It's a runner type of game, not infinite as far as I can see, there's probably a infinite run mode somewhere, but I'm not sure if that exist since I haven't finished the game yet. Other than that, It's pretty cool. I totally recommend it to people that are bored and just want to have that plain old fun.

The graphics are really not that good, which is expected since It's the art style, but I think they could do a lot more with it, like shadows and more saturated colors, but It's pleasing to the eye and this is just a nit pick. It doesn't really affect the gameplay that much.

SOUNDS = 7/10
There's nothing much here besides some simple tracks, which makes the game more lively but It's not something memorable. It's just there to fill the gap. I still like it though and that's all that matters.

GAMEPLAY = 10/10
I really don't think I have any criticism about the gameplay, It's fast, fun and addictive, you have this dinosaur fella that has to run for his dear life because an asteroid is about to hit earth obliterating everything in it's path, and you have to run. There are multiple levels and each of them are identical to one another but the path and difficulty are all different. It's very fun and I have no complaints.

OVERALL = 9/10
I really enjoyed "Dino Run" and I think It's a good game to waste your time on. I wholly recommend it to everyone who likes simple yet fun games.
