Summary

Good fun for everybody!

The Good

This game is a fun, funny and additive game for the whole family. Funny cartoon graphics with lots of colour and zip. The game play is straight forward, grab as many eggs (Pacman style) as you can and score points while doing so. In single player your dinosaur races against the computer generated bad guys, cavemen. In two player mode you also play against another dino, the winner getting a bonus!

Lots of silly fun and lots of levels, with silly little animations. For example: The cavemen bonk you on the head with a club and then eat you if they catch you! (You can punch them in the nose to get away!)The winner of the level does a funny little "end zone" dance.

Teleports to next levels, trip switches, and tacos that give you fire breath are some of the things you can collect. For ages 8-100!

The Bad

Mildly tedious and repetitive. Mostly while in single player mode. More fun if played with someone else. Sometimes the steering of characters is a bit wonky and irritating if it costs you a life or makes you loose the level.

The Bottom Line

Simple good solid fun game for everyone in the family. Will make everyone smile. Nice to have in a collection.
