Dino Run

A friend of mine showed me this game a little while back. I was hooked pretty much from the start, but my goood. XD It may be cute, quirky, and fairly well made, but it's also half adrenaline rush, half maddeningly keyboard-smashing-type frustrating. In other words, it won't be uncommon for you to die seconds from victory.

Said friend has beaten the game. That is to say, she's gotten all of the super eggs, maxed out all of the trophies, and beaten all of the speedruns and the main game on the hardest difficulty. I say to all of you who are going to try for it...good luck. XD

As an interesting aside, she found out that once you beat all of the speedruns on medium (easier said than done!), you can customize your dino. Make it wear hats, choose what color it is...also, every time you beat the game, the dino automatically changes color.

I play the multiplayer version on PixelJam. I'm one of these 2 (dumb) names.

I haven't tried multiplayer. Can only imagine how much more of a clusterf*ck that would be. :P

It's on PixelJam or Xgen Studios. Multiplayer is actually pretty fun. You can have races with up to four people, and you can race on several of the different maps on single player. Also, there's a chat room where people usually just chat, but people will still race you.

Warning: DO NOT GO ON THE BONEDOCKS SERVER. IT IS THE HOME OF CRAPPY ROLEPLAYING SKILLS. Viewer discretion is advised.
