Dinosaur Game is a simple T-Rex casual game in which you avoid obstacles while running for as long as possible. It was originally built into Google Chrome in 2014 and can be played without an internet connection.

How to Play Dinosaur Game

The objective of Dinosaur Game is to avoid obstacles and survive for as long as possible. The game speeds up the more you advance, making it increasingly challenging. Gameplay controls are simple - press the spacebar to start moving and click the space bar to jump over obstacles. This side-scrolling game is reminiscent of arcade games. Your movements are limited, and success depends on avoiding obstacles, getting especially difficult as speed increases.

As the speed increases, the further you get, you will need to factor that into your jumps. You’ll also come across cactus, birds, and more - don’t attempt to jump over the highest-flying bird. If the object is high, you can go under it.
