Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers in the world today thanks to its huge database and fast search capabilities. However, even when offline, this browser still easily scores points in the eyes of users with its already famous game “Dinosaur lost its life”.
This dinosaur is called Chromasauras and will appear every time a user starts Google Chrome without an Internet connection. Just press the Space key/up arrow key, they can control this dinosaur and start the obstacle course. Their mission is very simple, just help Chromasauras avoid thorny cactus bushes, annoying evil birds, and run for as long as possible.
Because it is a game to kill time, “Dinosaur lost its life” has quite simple and lovely 2D pixel graphics. However, with the “endless-run” gameplay that has been and is very popular on smartphones today, this can completely become a more interesting game if it is invested in terms of images. That’s probably why YouTuber Fat Dino, with over 750,000 subscribers, decided to use Unreal Engine 4 to add flesh, add color to Chromasauras and turn it into a beautiful 3D game.
First, Fat Dino creates a limited game environment, which means that this game will have an end point. But the YouTuber guy insists the player will never “have enough” to run to that final point. He then “molded” models of Chromasauras, cacti, and Pterodactyl flying dinosaurs in turn, and added the necessary functions such as jumping, flowing, and crouching so that our dinosaur could easily dodge. Avoid the obstacles on the road.
Besides, Fat Dino also does not forget some mechanics such as Chromasauras’ running speed will increase gradually over time, day and night cycle, sound effects and even the Game Over screen like the original. Finally, just add a bit of desert background behind, and that’s how the 3D version of the game “Dinosaur lost its life” was born.
