Pico Dino

A reimagination of Google Chrome's offline game in Pico-8!
Features an expanded moveset and reimagined graphics!
It's based off this animation I made some time ago:


Jump - Up Arrow / C
Crouch - Down arrow / X

Made with ♥ by Yolwoocle

Available on itch.io too: https://yolwoocle.itch.io/pico-dino

Nice! Did one quick run of 822. Really cool, nice polish in the style.

P#85305 2020-12-11 20:24

loved it! after a bit, i felt like i was just along for the ride and couldn't blink anymore. lol
graphics were cool, nicely done.

P#85306 2020-12-11 20:35

I love this! Now I don't need to shut off my internet to play the Dino Game!

P#85309 2020-12-11 21:06

Very polished, gratz! I stopped at 2279 because the game didn't seem to get any harder. The game never put me in a position that I needed to use the crouch or stomp to progress.

P#85322 2020-12-12 15:33

Very good! Congrats! Here is my score

P#85351 2020-12-13 18:13

@eduszesz lot better than me. My high score is 1484. Anyway nice job. I like the animations.

P#85388 2020-12-14 20:46

Hey @SquidLight! Thanks!
Very good animations indeed, I like it as well

P#85393 2020-12-14 21:12

Lovely fun. The animation is very juicy, and great art. Better than the original!

P#85408 2020-12-15 06:32


P#85562 2020-12-18 18:00

Awesome idea and execution! So adorable

P#85819 2020-12-27 07:50

the animation is so squishy I love it so much and the whole game play gah it's lovely

P#87047 2021-02-01 00:29

Nice and squishy remake! I'm amazed at what you have done with this cart.
Edit: Played your game on youtube!

P#94138 2021-06-27 14:31 ( Edited 2021-06-27 16:01)

The animations look nice. You did good!

P#95789 2021-08-08 22:16

Thanks for the lovely comments, yall :)

P#95799 2021-08-09 08:32

Good remake!

P#95803 2021-08-09 14:14

1449! Thank you this game is very fun and the control/animation is crazy good. This is not a demake, nor a remake, it is an upmake!

P#95821 2021-08-10 00:36

lol ive never even seen anyone really pay attention to the crouching and fastfall mechanic in chrome dino game, animations are really smooth and feel quick

P#95974 2021-08-13 21:10

And I thought the original was already good. DAMN you changed my mind!! I look forward to seeing more of these upbeat animations in old games.

P#96189 2021-08-18 15:48

Great remake! Did 2 or 3 runs and got an 830, I love the animations you did and how fun and cartoonish the artstyle is. I also love how you can just slide after a ground pound, very cute and imaginative!

P#96692 2021-08-30 18:45

I'd say that this trounces the original in just about every way. I just wish that you could stomp on the enemies as shown in your original gif, it'd certainly make the game even more fun. However, I did run into a glitch, after a while, the objects get stuck on the right side of the screen and don't approach the dino anymore, meaning you can just keep running without having to worry about losing. I'm not sure if I did something to make that happen or if the game glitched out by itself.

Regardless, this is definitely the definitive version of the dino run game. And it's nice because I don't use Chrome anymore!

P#97446 2021-09-17 08:14 ( Edited 2021-11-22 08:46)

@PJBgamer Whoops! That's definitely a bug, although it never happened to me, that's weird. Some day I'll probably rework on this game, fix some bugs, and add some more stuff, as I still have ideas and stuff I want to do.

P#97448 2021-09-17 09:07

looks good!

P#98210 2021-10-04 19:57

I really like your game, although I do hope that you will add story (like your intro gif) into the game and hopefully upgrade the idea into something new. I think this idea has a lot of potential!

P#98221 2021-10-05 00:19

This is an awesome demake

P#99310 2021-10-29 12:53

love it!!!

P#99663 2021-11-06 03:32

He run, he ducks, and mostly... he S L I D E

P#101114 2021-11-30 18:45

what are the extra sprites for?

P#102527 2021-12-13 02:31

What are the changing digits that appear above High Score, @Yolwoocle ?

P#102528 2021-12-13 02:34

@Sup3rAw3som3Gam3r Those are just tests. The tiny dinos are for an idea I had about escorting a tiny baby dino. The google chrome sprites, likewise, were for a scrapped vignette around the game.

P#102552 2021-12-13 10:15

@dw817 This is not normal, it's supposed to be the score (lol). Weirdly enough, I don't have this issue when downloading the cart. I'll look into this

P#102553 2021-12-13 10:19

I think the birds need to fly higher becouse i dont see why i need to duck.

P#114958 2022-07-29 10:00

Very good. Polished. Loved playing it

P#115248 2022-08-04 20:42

You know Google has to step up their game when someone steps up their game.

P#132071 2023-07-17 16:25

my score is great and 1 thing: how? im just starting out and cant even make anything my coding is trash

P#134201 2023-09-12 00:11

@WoopyBoiii Hey, so the best thing I can recommend you doing is to start small, don't make any big projects. Make things that take you make a day, a few days, or an afternoon. You can start by copying other games and adding your own flair. You don't have to make anything original, or impressive, or even good! Just embrace being bad at what you're doing and don't think too much about the future. Just mess around with shit, don't overstress about it. Most important is to have fun! Focus on the joy of creating games and not the end result. Hope that helps! :)

P#134224 2023-09-12 18:37 ( Edited 2023-09-12 18:38)

@WoopyBoiii If you want any specific tutorials or resources I can help you with that too.

P#134225 2023-09-12 18:40 ( Edited 2023-09-12 18:40)

@Yolwoocle thanks for the thing but I have no coding experience, please help.

Edit: I am also on education edition on a chromebook so I can't really do a lot for copying the game and adding a flair.

P#134227 2023-09-12 18:42 ( Edited 2023-09-12 18:58)

Well polished game! (Best strategy is to hold down duck, and then jump over stuff when necessary)

P#134345 2023-09-14 16:52

Awesome, currently all you need to do is jump. Reduce the jump to just enough to clear the cactus and it should require a duck to get under the med/high birds.

P#134354 2023-09-14 18:05

This is my score on Pico Dino. I like the game, but the problem is I can't see anything when the background becomes darker because my PC and phone are on low brightness. My best score is 4230, but not on another website about Chrome Dino Game. I have liked these offline games for 1 year while working in the IT sector.
