Ever feel like the world is just crashing down around you? Like you can’t seem to get ahead of impending deadlines? Like you’re in a race with other losers who do nothing but slow you down and keep you from reaching your goals? Like the tar pit is too far to jump and you wish you had a pterodactyl to help you clear it?
Well then do we have a game for you! Dino Run is a phenomenal game about outrunning your doom made by the talented guys over at PixelJam. In it you play a small dinosaur who is just minding his own business when all of a sudden, BAM, an asteroid hits and it’s the end of the world. The game is beautifully done with 8 bit style graphics, and features an amazingly high amount of replay value as you can play against friends online, unlock acheivements, and evolve your dinosaur (though why would you bother evolving if it is the end of the world?) You can even get hats for your thunder lizard if you donate, which you should do!
Kevin, Josh and I pretty much spent the entire spring semester ’08 playing this game, and we don’t regret it for a second.
