Description official description

Years ago, meteors struck San Saurian, filling the air with thick and filthy dust. So a mighty wind machine was made to help everyone breathe. But Mr. Rexo has stolen the parts for the machine, forcing other dinosaurs to guard the pieces!

You must help Bronkie and Rexo find the lost machine pieces by blowing away dust with your lungs, and hitting enemies with your dusters, before the dust returns and everyone chokes on the dust! But don't run into cigarrette smoke or dust storms, otherwise your vision will get darker, and you'll have a hard time finding out where to go, running into enemies all around!

Along the way you'll learn about asthma and how to prevent it, as well as how to react if you're suffering from an asthma attack.

Average score: 3.2 out of 5 (based on 1 ratings)

okay, but not for really young kids...

The Good
1.This game was educational, so it met it's purpose. 2. My sister has asthma, and that's the entire point of the game. 3. Good graphics. (except for words)

The Bad
1. It's complicated. 2. You CANNOT READ THE BUBBLE LETTERED WORDS. 3. It took me years to figure the game out! Not for young kids! 4. There is so many dials and things at the top green dots and lungs and more, and it does not explain what to do!!!

The Bottom Line
Complicated, Okay, Babyish for it's purpose and doesn't explain properly, and Overall just Okay.
