DINO RUN DX is an ongoing evolution of the classic prehistoric multiplayer racing game. Control your iconic raptor through an endless assortment of procedurally generated landscapes and outrun the ever-approaching WALL OF DOOM. Will you end up one of the millions of doomsday casualties, or will you ESCAPE EXTINCTION?

-A unique experience every time you play... no two levels are ever the same.
-3 major single player gameplay modes: CHALLENGE, PLANET D and SPEEDRUN (currently 24 speedruns with more coming soon).
-Realtime multiplayer with chat, matchmaking and more unique levels to race in. Climb the ranks and show your dominance!
-Choose from a staggering number of hat and color combinations to hone your look... unlock even more hats by completing game milestones.
-FREERUN MODE: turn off the doom, chat with other players during actual gameplay, spawn boulders and npc dinos, roleplay.... do what you want!

How is DX different than previous versions of the game?
If you've only played the web version from years ago, you'll find DX is a dramatic improvement with more levels, hats and gameplay options. If you've played Dino Run SE, the major differences right now are completely redone backgrounds and an extra layer of polish, true fullscreen mode, controller support, steamworks integration, improved multiplayer security, and a few more hats and colors to choose from. We are also currently working on even more improvements to the game and will continue to roll out new features as long as there is interest and support. This is our pledge to you! More info on upcoming features can be found at http://www.pixeljam.com/dinorun.

Fun Facts:
-The original web version has been played over 100 million times (source: Mochibot)
-Pixeljam, the creators of Dino Run, have made over 20 games since 2006.
-Dino Run helped pioneer the "runner" genre of games, before it was popularized on mobile and started to truly suck.
-Dinosaurs did not actually wear hats, but there are tiny traces of them in the plastic tightening straps on all baseball caps.

I love this game, I played it in high school when I was uploaded to the Internet. Although It has re few levels it is very fun to play it every so much and go up the dino levels and unlock features. The Music is great too

Dino Run is a classic. Addictive, colorful and exciting. If You like Pixel art, this game fits perfectly with you. Honestly, more people should give it a try. More active players Are needed to have more multiplayer rooms.

I remember playing this game several hours when I was a kid. Currently I do not play much, mainly because I burned it several years ago. Simple and entertaining. Totally recommended to hang out on a PC that does not use Windows Vista

Excellent platform and speed game with a pixel-art style of the best I've seen on Steam. A simple and super fun game. I loved it and it reminds me in its graphic style to the classic of recreational Jungle king in terms of its graphic minimalism and excellent use of the colorful.

A Game about the importance of overeating on the go. And Seriously, it is ideal for cases where you want to play in something minutes 10-15 and finish with a sense of completeness. One of the few games that gives you to manage a dinosaur and does not slide into the beaten theme of confrontation with humans or simulator life reptiles. However, the issues of life and death of the game touches directly: the goal-to get to the shelter and not to sink in the Earth wave caused by the fall of the meteorite. In addition, the game is aesthetically holistic: Minimalist graphics, electronic soundtrack, constant tension from the coming on the heel mud avalanche. Is that from constantly clamped keys fingers a little tired, because more than ten play at a time does not go =)

Game about apocalyptic madness. There is No time to explain something — a little bit of confusion and immediately understand what your goal: to avoid a collision with a raging, roaring, all-consuming death. I am fascinated by the change of colors in the seconds when the dinosaur runs a few steps from this stream: a little games, which so worry about your character, as in these moments. A very living environment: this whole run creates the impression of the grandeur of the descending. Great music that I remember from the time I played Dino Run on the Congregation. And let the game has a rather modest goal (except that to collect all the super-eggs and completely upgrade the dinosaur), for me it remains special because of the convincing sensation of crumbling in the eyes of the world.
A nice, cute little game. Your objective is simple, to survive the apocalypse brought by a meteor about to hit your planet. You do this by running from the "wave" while dodging a variety of obstacles, mostly other dinos that are about to the devoured by the all-consuming darkness. Dumb dinosaurs!

The game has very few levels, about 6 I believe, that usually take about a couple minutes to be completed. Each level is unique, having a different "biome" and obstacles, as well as secret collectibles. This means the game can be completed quite quickly, but like most arcade games, the idea is that you will go over the same levels several times, trying to find everything and then trying to do it as fast as possible. Talking about speed, the way the game conserves your momentum is one of the reasons I'd say it's good. It's very hard to master all the techniques, and it takes skill to apply them to each level. But when you get into the groove, you can really get going.

I wish the game was longer, had more levels or more level modifications. The unlockables are kinda meh, too. But the core game is very much enjoyable.
