Survival Fitness: Treadmillasaurus Rex

By Kieron Gillen on September 6th, 2010 at 9:00 am.

That developers are no longer afraid of dealing with personal autobiographical topics is one of the best things about the modern webgame.

It’s the start of the week. Time to warm up your gaming muscles with – perhaps appropriately – a game set in a gym. A GYM OF DEATH. Papa Voodoo pointed us at Treadmillasaurus Rex, where you play the titular dino on a treadmill, dodging spikes rolling towards you. Every few seconds the wheel of awesome spins choosing a complication, from relevant things like speeding up the treadmill or tightening the laser-beams around you to less relevant things like hat-extension and confetti boosts to much craved but elusive things like “win the game”. It’s ultimately a short life for this thunder lizard, but one where his cardio-vascular fitness is never in question. Go play!

    Thank god, I’m suicidally bored.

    Everything gets better when you add in dinosaurs. And top hats. But it’s still not much more than a slight snack in terms of gaming.. edibility?

    Reversed treadmills my ass….lying wheel!!!

  4. Conlaen says:

    The wheel doesn’t actually ever stop on the Win the Game field does it?

    36,175 on my second attempt. Could of kept on going, but getting three Top hats in a row really throws your game off.

    This demonstrates the pointlessness of computer games through reductio ad absurdam.

    Absurdium.

    Actually, it’s a rare metal called “Absurdium”. It is a radioactive element in the class of Narrativums.

    Ugh, flashing up text that obscures the game field is a rookie mistake, dinosaur or not.

    The best feature of this game is the way it makes my browser keep losing focus, leading to reptillian death.

    MY top game ended at 57,175. Jolly good fun.

  13. PleasingFungus says:

    Heh. That was extremely silly.

    Fabulously inane and weird. Great stuff! I hate the bloody reversing treadmills. Sadistic bastards. AAAARGH!
