Get ready to smash some stuff! SMASHSMASHSMASH!!!1

SMASHASAURUS is a dino-tastic stuff-smashing arcade experience.

Destroy everything in sight to get points and raise your DINO LEVEL™
and get even more smash-power!

Can you make it to a million points?


Move - left/right
Jump - Up
SMASH - Space


Hams - +1 Health
Enemies - bad dudes
everything else- SMASH IT


This is by far the most complicated thing I've ever made so there will certainly be lots of dumb little bugs; I hope you still enjoy the ridiculous craziness! Feel free to report any bugs that seem major.

Known issues:

- The spawn mechanics are a little janky.. stuff may spawn in odd places
- I HAVE gotten stuck in walls, but rarely
- Enemies occasionally spawn on top of you ;-;

Man 110000 was my top score. I really tried, but the game is hard with the crazy top hat dinos cramping my style!
Really fun game, with better movement and better spawn logic, that would be awesome. But I really enjoyed it :D

When exporting gamemaker make sure you do it with a .exe file. Other than that this game was fun, but a little bit to hard in my opinion (Then again, that's what arcade games should be.). Some of the sprites could be better placed, and transitioned to one another. (It looks to much like a tileset). 2.5/5 Needs more puns.
