Karate Dino, first game by the small indie Studio Thinkmojo, is an 80’s inspired arcade video game where you, a Karateka, try to survive in a lost world fill with dinosaurs. React fast, stay focused, and you might become the most valorous Karateka the world has ever known. But be careful, one mistake, and the T-Rex, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus or the many other creatures from the past will provoke your downfall.

A simple one-hand / one-touch game filled with retro 16-bit pixel art and smooth animations, perfect for a quick and exciting game session.

Cool concept but too dificult

Hi, i like the graphics, the colors, and the concept, but there are some things that need to be changed about the game in order for it to be fun and playable and to get 5 stars. First of all, the game should be called DinoJump, because that is all that you do...jump over the dinosaurs. Why have a karate character that never throws a punch nor a kick, it just doesn't make sense. It would be fun if instead of jumping the dinosaurs the point of the game was to kick and punch them then that would be fun. Another thing is that the difficulty is way to high right off the bat. It's frustrating not being able to get more than a few points ever. Some of the pterodactyls fly way to fast, and the brontosaurus's head is too difficult to clear with the jump, it just makes it seem very unfair and unbalanced. Like maybe a progression of difficulty as the points increase could solve this problem. This game is better suited for landscape mode than portrait mode because the characters are so small (this should have been obvious). This could be a great game but it's not yet so I hope changes are made because I think it could be a great game to play.

Addiction 80's style

Hey there I'm Yann, one of Karate Dino's creators. Hope you like what we've done with the game. Tell us what you think - good or bad - and we'll do our best to bring improvements to the next versions. And of course, if you enjoy the game, we would be infinitely grateful for giving it some good old 5 stars.
Happy jumping!
