    Dinocide is a strong recommendation for fans of nostalgia, platforming and dinosaurs. If the game goes on discount, it is worth the investment. However players will be left questioning whether the couple of hours of content is really worth the price of admission.

    A game for 8-bit era nostalgics that would have been great in the NES era, but today is not really original nor particularly memorable. It’s still a pretty decent platform game, that will keep you entertained for a while.

    Dinocide isn't a bad game but it isn't particularly noteworthy either. It has a couple good idea but the platforming is fairly rudimentary and very derivative. With a few content updates it might become something better, but as it stands Dinocide feels like it's still stuck in early access.

    Another homage to the platforming of the Eighties, but this time it's sadly a mediocre affair in terms of style and mechanics.

    Please, for those who are interested, I implore you to take them up on that offer and make sure this game is right for you before you make a purchase.

    Since the first time through Dinocide can be fairly boring with only a couple of boss battles to break up the repetition, it makes replaying the game an undesirable prospect.
  7. 30
    Dinocide is both a shameless and halfhearted recreation of other titles as well as a ripoff for all gamers with its criminally short length and crummy gameplay. Avoid this one at all costs.

Are these reviewers CRAZY giving this game 30 or 40? And their main argument being "uh, I couldn't complete some level on the first try". Holy ****. And their second argument being "lack of innovation"? Did they read the game description? The developers said from the very beginning that they are making the game that is 100% true to the old days. They deliberately didn't introduce any modern mechanics. Dinocide is a pure classic! I had such a blast playing it that no other of so called "old-school" games comes even close. In fact, I completed it three times in a row just because how fun it is! It genuinely brings you back to NES era! Expand

It reminds me about my childhood and long nights without sleep. I love the 8-bit graphics style and atmosphere in Dinocide. Pretty simple and fun gameplay, good music and cute dinos. Maybe the price is a bit high. Anyway I really recommend Dinocide as a good old-school platformer. Expand

    Okay, my friend from South Africa plays this game tens of hours, seriously. I am not that dedicated but I track this game's progress and hereOkay, my friend from South Africa plays this game tens of hours, seriously. I am not that dedicated but I track this game's progress and here is something I need to say: this game maybe lacks some content and depth but they are updating it so far. The initial idea is great, developers managed to accomplish exactly what they promised: they revoked the spirit of that old-school NES gaming. There are some mistakes, but you know what? The game is enjoyable. It makes you keep playing, you do not quit if you die, you really wanna continue, you come there again. And this is important today, when people are used to mobile market where you play game just once in most cases. I won't give it 10, because I really want much more content and gameplay improvements. But this is a decent game made by fans of this genre and they did a good job. Expand
