Dino Run (Escape Extinction) is an American independent Flash game created by PixelJAM[1] and XGen Studios, released on April 30, 2008, in which the player steers a velociraptor through increasingly dangerous side-scrolling landscapes to escape an impending wall of doom. The game uses simple pixel art and 8-bit sound to replicate the style of 1980s arcade games. An improved version of the online game called Dino Run SE was released for Macintosh, PC, and Linux.

Gameplay[edit]

The dinosaur is controlled with the arrow keys.[2] The object of the game is escape a wall of doom called the apocalypse, similar to a pyroclastic surge[3] (a quickly moving wall of ash debris caused by meteors) and to make it to a 'dino sanctuary' alive.[4] Along the way, the player can choose to collect eggs and devour bones to advance their dinosaur's evolution. There are four levels of difficulty – easy, medium, hard, and insane.

Milestones[edit]

When the player completes a certain milestone or goal, they receive awards of bones, DNA, and points for your stats, as well as a trophy. Trophies can be viewed in the awards section of the stats menu, and they come in three levels depending on the level of skill the trophy was achieved with: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
