The Dinorawr Tales

by StormAndy - Jam Entry

Take a trip through the tale of the Dinorawr and help are young hero conquer the menacing Mean jelly beans which have conquered the land. Conquer the portals to gain score, collect lush loot and equip the finest of beards the land has to offer.

HINT: The louder your RAWR the more damage you will deal with a single blow so before spamming that attack button try waiting for your awesome Dinorawr to recover!

*WARNING* Game may objectify and impose unrealistic expectations of dinosaur beards.

Well nothing tops playing a game as a dinosaur -- sorry, dinorawr -- in a top hat! Super cute art! Great job buddy!

I like the games I play to objectify beards, all sorts of beards, not just dinosaurs'. It was a nice game, but some things I didn't manage to figure out:

When or what made the dino turn around?

When was the dino hurt? It seemed like colliding with opponents was not a problem. Also tried having several blobs waving their swords at me and for a while I was staying at three hearts unaffected and then all of a sudden I was dead.

In that respect, warping to next level, it would have been friendly with a bit of a safe zone around where you ended up.

In all though, a nice game.

Like Others mentionned, there are a few issues :
- Cant Right click, you need to remove right click menu in options.
- Cant see health.

Other than that, It's actually pretty nice. I liked the hats and weapons, though I couldn't text their special attack.

Thanks for the feedback guys :), sorry for those right clicking we had to remove special attacks last minute due to bugs/issues.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
