Become an Unlikely Hero to Sur- vive the Cretaceous Period in the first 3D dinosaur infinite running game to hit the AppStore!
The game was developed by Australian based game developer M5859 Studios whom worked closely with BBC Worldwide and with unique dinosaur assets from the Walking With Dinosaurs movie to create the worldʼs first 3D dinosaur running game on the AppStore. “The challenge was trying to remain faithful to the movie storyline and characters, whilst at the same time trying to create a fun and exciting running game”, says Matthew Snowden, founder of M5859 Studios.
“We experimented with different animation styles from semi-realistic like the movie itself, to more light-hearted cartoon feel. In the end we settled for a more cartoon feel which made for a better and more exciting gameplay”, explains Matthew Snowden, whom with a team of 12 staff worked on the game.
The game features:
• Run from the jaws of the very hungry Gorgon • Smash through small obstacles and Troodons • Escape the claws of big flying Pterosaurs • Jump over huge gorges and chasms • Dash past herds of dinosaurs • Avoid falling rocks and trees • Collect leaves to upgrade your boosts • Save up feathers to unlock new characters and environments • Explore and unlock different Cretaceous Period environments (with more coming soon!) • Unlock and play as your favorite movie characters including Juniper and Scowler (with more coming soon!).
M5859 Studios plan to provide regular upgrades to the game including new levels of amazing Forest Fires and Cretaceous Swamps, both which are featured through out the blockbuster family movie as well as new playable dinosaur characters! The game is available on the App- store today!
