The Google Chrome dinosaur game is a fun way to kill some time and lower your blood pressure when the internet is acting up.
But ask yourself this: has the trundling T-Rex had it a little to easy? Is hopping over a few spiky desert cactus a bit too chill?
Google thinks so.
A recent browser update introduces a new obstacle to the desolate desert landscape. An obstacle one with teeth, claws and plenty of bite: pterodactyls!
Gamers who clear enough cactus to reach 450 points will then contend with flying pterodactyls as well as cacti.
Squarrrrr! (…is a noise I’m assuming flying dinosaurs made).
Give the updated game a try yourself (either by turning your Wi-Fi off and loading a page in Chrome, or by setting ‘network‘ to ‘offline‘ in Chrome developer tools > mobile.
Hit the space bar to trigger the game, and use the ‘up’ key to jump over and the ‘down’ key to duck them.
What obstacles, dinosaurs or power-ups would you throw into the mix if you were in charge?
