Had a ton of fun with this sadly I'm still not the best dinosaur.

I really REALLY wanted to be the best dinosaur...maybe because these kids were watching me and were so enthusiastic! It's a really sweet game but I won't be the best dinosaur either

this comes together nicely in terms of gameplay/art/sound, whooohooo!! the fast movement speed makes the difficulty much more bearable. i like the different kinds of meteors--gamifying extinction.

I was briefly the second best dinosaur. I'm going to have to console myself with that fact.

Pretty great, lol. My only problem is that some of the levels require a bit of memorisation in some parts.

The art and sound effects were really charming. I think the evolve/revert mechanic adds a lot to the game, I normally wouldn't replay a simple platformer like this after beating it but I ended up playing a bunch of times to go for a perfect run. The final stages of evolution and the "good ending" were pretty great.

Interesting idea, I wish I wasn't so terrible so I could be the best dinosaur. I thought this showed some good game design, great imagination and a lot of humour. Nice work

Pretty nice, man. Shows a good game doesn't have to be graphically fleshed out. Like it!
