+Karl G Posted September 30, 2022 Share Posted September 30, 2022 Save the Dinos! is my tribute to NASA's recent DART mission. It was hastily coded and only lightly tested, but is a good proof of the game concept. I may or may not develop it further at some point. Premise You are a chronozoologist who studies the development of animal life throughout time on all manner of alien worlds. Your current task is to learn how the dinosaurs of the planet Earth would have continued to evolve had they not been wiped out by a stray asteroid. Your team has developed three Dinosaur Asteroid Rerouting Tactical System probes to divert the asteroid before it can hit Earth. However, the Time Preservation Society has heard of your plans, and is sending more asteroids to Earth. Your team is working as fast as it can to create more probes to divert these asteroids as well. Use them well, and save the dinosaurs! Gameplay Instructions Press the joystick fire button to launch a probe. Press Up to thrust, and Left and Right to change the direction of the probe. Steer the probe to an intercept course with the incoming asteroid at an angle that will change its velocity in such a way as to miss Earth. If you don't get a good enough hit with the first probe, then you may launch another to try again if you are quick enough. One point and one new probe is gained with every successful asteroid deflection. For every 10 asteroids deflected, you gain one additional probe for your reserves. The game ends when you run out of probes to launch, or when one of the asteroids hits the Earth.
