Free Games Of The Day Are Dino Run And Space Rubbish

Free Games Of The Day Are Dino Run And Space Rubbish

Up to four dinosaurs need your help to escape the apocalypse. An entire galaxy is threatened by vampires who know their way around a faster-than-light drive. Save the day (twice), all for free.

PixelJam is giving away Dino Run SE and Space Rubbish, along with music from both games for absolutely nothing, until tomorrow. The offer was originally going to end today, but it’s been extended by 24 hours.

Still, there’s no time to think, just do.

If you’ve always wanted to run continuously from left-to-right as a prehistoric creature, then Dino Run SE is the game for you. As you might have guessed from the last two letters, it’s a special edition. Included is everything you need to host and play in multiplayer (so you and three of your friends can run across the screen together, fleeing meteorites and leaping into bubbling volcanoes), as well as full-screen support and a freaky mode called “Planet D”.

Space Rubbish has nothing at all to do with dinosaurs, and a lot to do with space, trading and slaying interstellar energy-sucking vampires. It’s quite beautiful, in a retro-arcade-meets-the-undead kind of way, and should help satiate your hunger for the next Elite, should David Braben ever actually release it (as a top-down Asteroids clone).

There are a few small hoops to jump through to take advantage of this delicious deal. First, visit the DinoRubbish MegaBundle on the PixelJam website. Look for the link that says “Buy Now” and click it. You’ll be presented with checkout options, but what you want to do is enter “0” in the “Name your price” box. The checkout options will be replaced with prompts asking for your email address, location and postcode. Once you’ve typed these in, hit OK.

Note that by doing this, you will be signed you up to their newsletter. Also, they need the address to send you a link to your FREE GAMES.

It’s then a matter of cracking open your email client, be it desktop or web-based, locating the email and clicking the link. A 199MB download will be offered to you, which includes 11 music tracks from Dino Run SE and Space Rubbish, along with ZIPs of the games.

  • sounds interesting, but is it worth my time and effort, probably, still haven’t got around to playing the last weeks game yet. I might check it out, a free game is a free game.

    • It’s not as hard as it sounds. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was. The most time consuming part was waiting for it to download.

      Also, it’s two free games!

      • yeah, it was actually very easy i noticed as well, and anyways, Dinorun was one of my favourite browser games a couple of years ago, and seeing this free full release is definately worth it in my opinion 🙂

  • Dino Run was a pretty good flash game. Looks to have some nice options in the download.

    I hadn’t heard of Space Rubbish before this but it is incredibly fun. It’s essentially asteroids with an upgrade system and some added enemies but those changes make it quite addictive.
