Dino Run is a 2008 game made by Pixeljam and Xgenstudios where the player navigates a dinosaur (possibly a velociraptor) through increasingly dangerous side-scrolling landscapes to escape an impending Wall of Doom. This game is made using simple pixel art and 8-bit sound to replicate the the style of 1980s arcade games.
