I've already played this a couple of times before. Sure the title and theme was different, but the game really wasn't. The only thing I noticed as being different really was the ability to steer up and down.
I'm just gonna list what I didn't like. For stuff that works out, check what people are saying about that penguin game or the hedgehog thing
Not original. The menus are unpleasant and not very inviting. Laggy chunks once in a while. steering controls are a bit too sensitive.
I'm sorry but I just couldn't get interested. It is a decent enough game but I just don't see why you would even want to make it? Wouldn't it be more fun to come up with an original concept?

this is great, but then again, any game with decent physics and upgrades is, although sometimes when on the way back down from space it starts opening the "select course" screen, and also its a bit laggy. sometimes I bounce off the ground w/o my wheels :P. but all in all its a good game
I encountered a glitch where after hitting about 3,500 meters and coming back down into the ground I apparently smashed through it. The game went into a loop where I kept going -1,000+ meters underground. Had to restart.
Pop up explanations?
Very well executed. Simple enough but with enough goodies to keep the interest.
My only gripe is that the upgrade menu has no explanations. I suppose after playing the game once, fully, you'd know what they do, but it's not obvious for a first time player. Lots of upgrade choices, but I wasn't sure what they did, or how best to spend my money. A pop-up that quickly told me "food powers the animal" or "lets you hold more food" or "purchases food so that you have some even if you don't get any" would have been nice.
Similarly, does obstacle resistance mean "bounces you higher off dinos" or "you miss more obstacles"?
Maybe I missed it, but I also didn't see anywhere in the game where it just told the player to use the WASD or arrow keys. That would have been helpful as well.
I loved it
I'm kind of a push over when it comes to easy, can't lose, upgrade games, so I enjoyed it immensely. The one glitch I encountered is that if you hit the ground too fast, you can actually fall through the earth. But at least there was an easy way to go back. Great job!
