By now most people will be familiar with the horizontal runner style of arcade titles, especially considering their popularity, so it's great to see a company like Nemoid Studio attempting to play with the formula in 'Dino Rush'.
Dundy the dinosaur is a hungry little hatchling and you'll need to help him to navigate the dangerous prehistoric landscape of jungles, volcanoes and frozen tundra to feed his ravenous appetite. The basics of Dino Rush will be familiar to genre fans and while Dundy sprints across the screen automatically, touching the screen will allow you to control when and how high he jumps. Tapping again will allow you to 'fly', though every action you take (including merely running) drains the energy available to your baby dino and you'll need to keep him topped up with food to keep up his pace.
Various power-ups also help out, granting temporary invincibility, super-speed, automatic flight and even a fruit-attracting magnet. Chaining a number of fruit without taking damage also increases your speed, placing you at further risk of damage, but also propelling you and your score higher up. The game's design is simply charming and utterly cute, but if any negative could be attributed to this runner it would be the weird acceleration and jumping physics that take a bit of time to get used to.
Fruit consumed is turned in to coins at the end of each run and completed objectives handed out at the beginning can also earn more money. This can in turn be used to purchase an on-demand power-up or to unlock an extra character. Dino Rush is a hidden-gem that's definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of endless running titles and a refreshing take on a genre that seemed all but over-used.
Description“Life is just like Dino Rush. If you get knocked down, just get up and keep eating.” - A Dino Rush player
An egg has just hatched in prehistoric time and a small dinosaur has emerged… and he's hungry!
Help Dundy the dinosaur make his way through tropical wildneress!
Tap to get Dundy to jump over obstacles, predators, melting lava or even quicksand. Score by eating loads of fruit to help Dundy survive and reach for power-ups to give him special abilities.
You can make Dundy fly, run, or even smash up adversaries… but whatever you do, remember to keep feeding him fruit along the way or he'll loose strenght and starve!!
Both skill and determination will be needed to survive this fruitfull adventure.
Boasting superb graphics, fantastic gameplay and great replay value, Dino Rush is an addictive and deliciously fun adventure for the whole family.
