What We’re Playing: Robot Dinosaurs

That shoot beams when they roar

Man, I get pumped just looking at this image. I wrote this entire blog post while listening to the various Dino-roars. Thanks, Nick Sumbles!

Some games don’t mess around. They’re a rare breed, the kind that looks at you square jawed with grit and determination and calmly states: “It’s go time“. Robot Dinosaurs (that shoot beams when they roar) is one of those games. From the moment the game starts atop makeout point, to the squeal of the guitars, to the over the top dialogue, to the hilarious shooting mechanic, this game is keenly aware of who it is for and what it is trying to be, and delivers. The whole game is very quick (there’s only one level) but there is a high degree of polish that you wouldn’t expect in such a short title. If you’re anything like me you’ll want to play it again at least once to try out the other character and see if there’s a difference.

I strongly recommend letting the game stay open for a little while after the credits, you’ll probably get a laugh out of it.


  1. man that was a non-nonsense, balls-to-the-wall game! The impeccably realistic sound effects were the defining feature- surely they must have gotten real dinosaurs to record those!
