It's a good game and I love the art but there appears to be a bug in it and there is a jump I cannot make! Still cool though.

Great art style. The jumping felt a bit too floaty though. And like blue fox I also ran into situations where you could not get over a hurdle. It would be interesting to see how you could evolve, har har, the gameplay to distinguish it from other "running games".

excellent thing that you change dinosaurs ! a bit slow maybe at the beginning? love the dino animation, very funny ! and good job on the trees in background too !

simple yet challenging. Liked how the dino evolved. Graphics were good. Related well to the theme. Overall, good job!

Graphics are great, in particular the backdrop. I love how the explosion at the start and end ties it all together; maybe you could show some of it behind you occasionally?

Thanks you for your good comments, its really encouraging !
And I agree, it's really a pity that impossible situations occurs. Since this is my first LD, i'm not aware of how things work here, but I guess it's not ok to bring modifications to the game once the 48 hours of compo have passed right ?

I liked the graphics.
The challenge seems quite good but I suck at runners and I 'm just dying again and again.
When you replay the first dino look soooooooo slow ^-^

Very good entry, fun and easy to play although it's very hard i places and the concept is lifted straight from dino run.

Really nice game, made me smile. You have to keep on your toes for those evolutions.

The game looks really great, fits the theme perfectly and has nice, simple mechanics.

Great game. The starting evolution is too long especially when you play 8-10 timesin a row. I'm also pretty sure I had impossible jumping dying with red dino at 5/8 and only missing few dna. Are you sure that bird is always possible to get when generate those high difficulty gaps ?
And also those legs animation are crazy ! I love them :D

Absolutely need an epic music in background! (very nice graphics btw)

Grouflon says ...

No there is some bug on the level generation that may spawn impossible gaps in the dino state. I will surely fix that in a post-vote version (with epic music ^^).

Great work : I really like the graphics and I love the bird (?) even if I murdered it all the times... ^^
Can't wait to see the evolution : Run DinoGame Run !!!

there is no turning back on the meteroid run, evolve or die. i found the original game dyno run quite fun ,but this is a good start, with more freedom and better collision masks it should be combo breaker!
Graphics are hilarious!

I tend to die quickly after the first upgrade. The art was good and the animation had an almost Flintstones quality to them.

very nice overall. love the animation and the graphics. not sure if platform generation changed after you evolved or at a certain time but either way very cool.

Well not the most original idea...but it was pretty fun! Nice graphics!
