you lie, that cheat doesn't work

Miles Tilmann May 19, 2008 1:36 PM

We know it's hard to keep the hats password a secret, but please do. The hats are just for donators, and we need donations to make more games. Ad revenue alone doesn't make nearly enough, and we refuse to lower ourselves to having annoying banners flashing all over our site. Yes, the xgen version is ad-heavy, but everyone has a choice on where they want to play the game.

Ideally we'd like to make ad-free games in the future. We're trying to be part of movement towards community-supported games where browser games are no longer just vehicles to show you ads for crap you don't need. Please help us in this movement by not spreading the hats password.. thanks :)

Xylozex May 19, 2008 5:37 PM

I know where the Bronto egg is. Will someone please give me a detailed descreption of where the Diplodo egg is?

Xylozex May 19, 2008 5:40 PM

Will someone please tell me how to put in nested spoilers?

Frostdawn May 19, 2008 11:26 PM

Diplodo Egg:

Near the end of the last level in challenge mode, there is a volcano. The path splits in two ways at the base of it - one that leads directly into the volcano, and one that leads up the volcano. Take the high path, and at the top of the volcano, jump in. You should easily be able to see the Diplodo Egg to your left. There's a tunnel out of this area to the right, so get the egg and continue on your merry way to the end of the level.

shadowbot May 20, 2008 12:39 AM

Miles, Just wanted to say I hope this game goes to kongregate, I enjoyed it so much I dusted off my paypal account and donated a couple bucks. I think the unlocking of hats is a great fun bonus, hopefully the community goes along with keeping the pass a secret. I do think it should be some long gibberish phrase thats not easily copied though, it seems to me a few people with the wrong intentions will eventually spread it to everyone.

What some people may not know is that you dont only get hats for donating, there is a nifty little bonus pack which is pretty cool. I just wish the soundtrack from the game was in there since I found it stuck in my head.

My only complaint about the game is the lack of jumping ability that sometimes happens at the most desperate times, especially when going downhill the dino suddenly seems unable to jump.

Also it would be nice to have some sort of fun minigame similar to the feeding frenzy at the end in order to unlock some of the stuff or earn more DNA.

Anyways, thanks for the great game. Its got a retro feel and just goes to show that its all about the gameplay. Cheers.

Ro-bear May 20, 2008 7:46 AM

What's the trophy to the right of the dactyl chain?

And while we're at it, does anyone have more than a 2x dactyl chain?


i think you should make it so you can make your own lvls and make your own super eggs and submit them to the gallery
and if ppl like them the super eggs can be approved by the devs and when you make one you can show them off in multiplay

Shadowgirl May 20, 2008 5:03 PM

The trophy to the right of the dactyl chain is the one you get for riding on top of a large boulder (3 seconds, 6 seconds, 10 seconds)
And so far, I've managed to get a 3x dactyl chain.

Anyone know which level is best for getting runners and birds?

Linda L Immler May 20, 2008 5:49 PM

um drogon the way to get the eggs easily (besides the bronto egg or whatever egg you need to turn up the difficulty to get) just set it on easy! ive gotten quite afew so called "immpossible eggs" from just setting it on easy.

by the way, how do you unlock the "planet D" level?

Linda L Immler May 20, 2008 6:00 PM

found a huge glitch! turn on all the cheats and jump off the side of lvl 2 and you will fall to infinity! awesome!

also it is so awesome you can get the bronto egg using cheats! i thought i would never get that egg!

Linda L Immler May 20, 2008 6:10 PM

also im not saying that glitch is bad, it gives you a challenge no matter how easy you make it because you kinda have to prevent yourself from going areal near the end.


@Linda L Immler: what do you mean you got the bronto egg?
i tried the glitch it only messed me up


Wheres the T-Rex Egg? I want the little beast!

Linda L Immler May 21, 2008 9:47 PM

i just noticed the more you unlock the more stuff appears on the menu page!

Inudeku May 21, 2008 9:59 PM

Any way to get rid of dna if you can't upgrade anymore? The strength boost from my Shift is pointless.

Xylozex May 22, 2008 6:09 PM

Thanks, Frostdawn. This is the gold dactyl chain:

4 in a row

Linda L Immler May 22, 2008 7:46 PM

meme i ment i had found it, not attained it in the gallery! i just wanted to see if it was really their.


@Linda L Immler ZOMGWTFBBQ ()_0 you have the bronto egg?!?!
whats your secret? that egg is nearly impossible to get
just how many ppl play the game that have it? if your the
only one who hase it than your one of the dino run champs! ps. to become a champ you must have all the super eggs pss. to become a godly champ you have to have all of the stuff like the hats (that i want oh so much)

[Edit: Meme - Please Stop Writing Your Comments By Capitalizing The First Letter Of Each Word. It makes your comments difficult to read. This is the last one I'm going to fix. Thank you. :) -Jay]

Linda L Immler May 23, 2008 7:59 AM

um meme i found it. not gotten it as a super egg.i found it. it is not in my awards gallery

arceus121 May 23, 2008 10:37 PM

(formerly Linda L. Immler) only 3 eggs to go! rinch, diplo, and bronto! i looked where where people keep saying it is! do you people mean its in the top crater of the volcano? cause i checked everywhere in the volcano and didn't find it!

Inudeku May 23, 2008 10:46 PM

Finally! I wonder if they'll ever add new stuff like a new difficulty or something.


Umm... I kinda forgot to pick the Bronto egg up at the end... I didn't know where it was at the time, is there any way to still get it?

Inudeku May 24, 2008 9:08 AM

Just beat Insane Challenge again. It shouldn't be that bad if you've done it before.


after extensive reasearch, i have concluded that dinos that get lots of supereggs dont have to pay asmuch for upgrades. i have also concluded that it is cheaper to buy all your skill at max right off the bat.

Frostdawn May 24, 2008 1:26 PM

Does anybody know where the Iguano and Dloro eggs are? Nobody seems to have mentioned them.

Anonymus May 24, 2008 2:15 PM
Inudeku May 24, 2008 4:42 PM

Worms Slurped and Doom Surf

Linda L Immler May 25, 2008 11:23 AM

can someone post a picture of where the diplodo egg should be? i cant find it! ive searched everywhere! EVERYWHERE!!!!!


Frostdawn: iguano egg is

to the left of an underground triceratops in a tunnel complex that is enterable either from a secret tunnel on the left side of a big hill or an obvious tunnel on the right side near some pine trees. IIRC this tunnel complex also has 1 other super egg in it. This is on either level 3 or 4 (don't recall offhand)

Anonymous May 26, 2008 6:48 AM

All eggs gotten!!!!! yay!


WHEW! I just BARELY got the Rinch Egg...

On Planet D, a few of the cheats are activated by default, such the low gravity one. As far as I know this is the only way to get the rinch egg, but luckily it always appears on Planet D.

To get to Planet D:

Beat Challenge Mode on Insane Difficulty. Don't worry, it still unlocks if you are using cheats.

Linda L Immler May 26, 2008 8:43 PM

please can someone post the url for a photo of wwhere the diplo egg is!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????? i need help! could someone atleast post what level it is on!? or if it has to be in a certain difficulty??? ive been searching for so, so, so, so, so, so, long! i cant find it anywhere in challenge mode!

Inudeku May 26, 2008 10:14 PM

I got the Rinch waaaaaay before I got Planet D

Xylozex May 27, 2008 6:27 PM

I did too, Indeku.

Sheer_Cold May 27, 2008 7:04 PM

@Inudeku: How'd you get that crown? I beat the first two columns of Speedruns on Hard like someone told me to (to get the silver crown). Then I beat Challenge on Hard to get it. Not working.

And I guess it's not a bad thing to post this either...

For the people who don't want to listen to the entire Destructoid podcast to get one hat:

The hat code for the Destructoid helm is totinos

If the creator wants this removed, then fine.

Inudeku May 27, 2008 11:22 PM

You have to clear every single speed run(even Planet D) in a difficulty to get a crown. All Mediums get Bronze, all Hard is Silver, and all Insane is Gold.

You may have to get the Bronze before Silver, and Silver before Gold, though.


First off, let me say, this is an excellent game. I peruse the intarwebs regularly looking for fun things to do. (primarily while at work, but hey go fig.) I haven't really found a lot of games online that captivate me for days on end, and this game has done nothing short of that. So cheers to you boys at pixeljam.

Secondly, I don't generally post on forums or anything of this nature, nor do I shout out for help so to speak. I have rigorously been hauling raptor tail through all these levels in search of the Alien egg. The only of the eggs I cannot seem to find. If anyone would be kind enough to explain, even in a brief description, I would be very grateful.

Again, excellent job gentlemen, you've captivated my attention which is no easy feat. I look forward to responses in the future.


Linda L Immler May 28, 2008 3:52 PM

i wish you could change your coler if you are on the last coler (black) without having to donate! i love the albino dino! (white with red eyes)

Linda L Immler May 28, 2008 3:59 PM

Aaron, the location of the alien egg is

on either level 4 or 5 (also i would suggest setting it to easy difficulty) it is in a large grey stationary meteor with a hole in the top right corner once you see it run into the hole in the meteor and the egg will be in the center of the meteor. (the hole is hard to notice but just look for the giant grey non-rolling meteor.

hope that helps!:)

Inudeku May 28, 2008 4:37 PM

Here's a hint for the Alien Egg: Meteor

Foxel(A.K.A wade) May 29, 2008 2:07 AM

Hi,Heres a hint.

the worm of pixeljams trophy still submits even when you have all the cheats on.


FruityDinoBites May 29, 2008 7:58 PM

I do recomend this game for anyone. I love this game! I just want more hat codes. I have the

tostinos hat code but everyone talks about that code the chat so everyone has it.

I want another but I can't donate online! I hope someone here can help me out! By the way, if you see me on there my name is FruityDinoBites

Cerulean May 29, 2008 8:19 PM

I'm glad I got a chance to finish most of the significant challenges I wanted to before cycle-sucking looping video ads made the game unplayable.


Tip: the stages are, more or less, randomly generated. So giving hints about the level something appears on doesn't help much. I'll admit there a some areas where things are more likely to appear than others. But the most helpful spoiler would describe the area AROUND what you're looking for, not the level it is on.


Anyone found a way to transfer your dino to another computer? I started playing at work, now would like to continue at home.

I tried transferring the cookies from Firefox, which worked for other sites, but did not for Dino Run.

Anyone know how the games stores the info on the computer?

[Edit: Flash does not store game saves and data in cookies, it uses its own local storage in your computer's file system. The default storage location for Flash local shared objects (LSO) is operating-system dependent:

  • For Windows XP, the location is within each user's Application Data directory, under Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects.

  • For Windows Vista it is in each user's AppData directory under Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects.

  • For Mac OS X it is in each user's Library directory under Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects.

  • For Linux it is in each user's directory: ~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects.

I hope that helps. -Jay]


You, sir, are THE MAN. Thanks a million!


Hi! I'm the beta tester Brody K. B. (from the credits). I've learned almost every cheat and trick from the game. If you get all bronze trophies on the speedruns, you get a bronze crown. The same goes for silver and gold. Any more questions?

shadowbot May 30, 2008 11:46 PM

How do you raise your player score? I went back and played a hard challenge run and got 200,000 points but my player score barely rose in my stats. I dont get it at all.


Whats the skull andcross bones trophy stand for?


Skull and cross bones is:

doomsurf trophy



one more egg to go!


I can`t find the diplodco egg!

Linda L Immler June 1, 2008 6:21 PM

me neither!


neddo: the trophy on the bottom right is

The "You Found Him!" Trophy, you get it on lvl 5 or lvl 6(I think) in challenge mode in a volcano, make sure you keep a good eye out for him hes brown.


I cant get this to play on Windows Vista.
I can get to the main screen and everything will load and all that jazz,
But the only click that works is the first link I click.
And anytime I click after that it won't respond at all.


wow... i still need to find some eggs, but on level apocalypse, ai found two secret(?) exits which were not at the end of the level, and the funny thing was that one was the PARADISE, a teleport to an island with gin clear water and sand and palmtrees... coool :)


Hey, Alal!

Can you post on how to find this teleport thing to get to the island? It's the only thing I haven't found yet.

Everything else is completed so I can't get my score to go up anymore, so I'm thinking that maybe finding this secret island can give me a couple of extra thousand points.

I've seen an image of the island on the Gold Desktops bonus on the Shop (after you get all the gold trophies).

Please help us find it!


Huh? Where's the other secret survival? I know about the

one in the large volcano to the left,

but where's the "Paradise"?


Trevor, I think what he means by "paradise" is actually the hidden "survival" you're talking about. But has anyone else found this island?

This is the link to the image I tried to post before:


Spino egg


in level 2. drop when there are 3 rods and go to the left a. then run and hide your chicken wings

Linda L Immler June 2, 2008 6:47 PM

braziliansaurus how do you get to that island!?!?!?

Linda L Immler June 2, 2008 9:08 PM

ok i got to the secret survival but what do you do there? isn't it in

the left indension within the volcano on the apocolypse level. dont you have to duck when you are in the middle of it?

what do you do in the secret survival anyway?

and where is this paradise?!


@Linda: Someone else (Alal) posted about it yesterday, but I can't find it either. That image is from the "Gold Desktops" bonus at the Shop.

Also I don't think you do anything in the secret Survival in the volcano. In my opinion it's a bad choice to go there,

since you miss the cool ending of Beyond Apocalypse.

Recycled Cannibal June 3, 2008 4:34 PM

Is there a way to cancel the cheats?

Recycled Cannibal June 3, 2008 4:43 PM

Lol. Nevermind. I figured it out XD Haha

bruniusest June 3, 2008 7:11 PM

i think you can acces the cave end with the night mode and the paradise with the boulder mode. i no longer ply dino so try it yourself.

Anonymous June 3, 2008 7:42 PM

i have the three crowns
i have 40 hats and helmets
i see paradise
i got all the eggs
anyone can tell how can i get the samurai hat and other specials hats????

Anonymous June 4, 2008 6:53 AM

where is the diplo egg. that is the last eggg have to get.

Cochonou June 4, 2008 6:36 PM

You get the samurai hat as soon as you get all the gold trophies.

Cochonou June 6, 2008 2:11 AM

Paradize is not the hidden survival of the Volcano in the Apocalypse level.

Actually, the teleporter to paradize is very near the secret survival. When you enter the Volcano in the Apocalypse level from the bottom, go up left at the first intersection (as if you were heading to secret suvival), then up right. You'll find a platform leading to what looks like a dead-end ledge. The ledge is not dead end: you can enter the right wall (but it needs a bit of jump/duck effort. This will lead you to the teleporter to Paradize. I have tried to access Paradize on Hard and Insane - it may or may not work at other difficulty levels.

Linda L Immler June 6, 2008 7:39 AM

hi. this is just a question. i stoped playing for a day or so, (i unlocked hats) than i came back and i had hats i didnt have when i left! (mario hat, luigi hat, wario hat, toad hat, indiana jones hat, witch hat, etc)


Totinos is a hat code
and thats all i know
and the hat is ugly...

Anonymous June 6, 2008 4:48 PM

Oh shoot. I got the gold crown before the silver one, and now I don't think I can get the silver one. Can anybody help me with this?

Linda L Immler June 6, 2008 7:28 PM

i have been to the paradise island! the portal has 3 floating dino "gods" above it and the portal is a huge ball of light!

Anonymous June 7, 2008 11:56 AM

where is the biggest egg? we were looking in the last level near the volcano and we save a little part that looked like we might be able to find it there, but we couldn't find a way to get in..

Linda L Immler June 7, 2008 3:19 PM

the bronto egg is in the final level in insane difficulty (the bronto egg being the largest egg)

Anonymous June 7, 2008 7:31 PM

can someone please show me a picture where the diplo egg is? it is the last egg i need to get.

Anonymous June 7, 2008 10:19 PM

oh but when i was on the apocolypse level, at the end it said i had zero out of 1 eggs and i have every egg but the bronto egg. I was on medium.

Anonymous June 7, 2008 10:20 PM

is the bronto egg obvious or do you have to search in insane difficulty?

Frostdawn June 8, 2008 12:26 AM

And now I have all of the eggs except the Bronto. For some reason, though, the game decided to give me the bronze crown before I had even BOUGHT Twin Peaks. Why is that?

gassnake June 8, 2008 4:46 AM

I have big problems obtaining the bolder ride trophies. Is there a way to do this easily? sometimes i'll be on a boulder for 4 seconds or something (going in the air) and it doesn't say anything.


The Bronto egg is at the very end in the Spaceship survival. Its on a not too high ledge.

Linda L Immler June 8, 2008 11:25 AM

gassnake, i guess it was a game glitch. but why complain? a free crown!XD

Anonymous June 8, 2008 3:35 PM

Sometimes, I seem to get a crown for free from switching between my accounts, one of which has the crowns. The option to keep the crown doesn't stay if you remove it though.

Also, I have a tip for everybody!

After riding a dactyl, there's a short bit of time where it releases you. If you press the up arrow key as it releases you, you'll fly forwards. If you press down, then you'll drop toward the ground faster.

tigeraptor June 9, 2008 12:25 AM

What is the secret survival(not paradise)?
And what is this "beyond apocolypse" Braziliansaurus mentioned?

Linda L Immler June 9, 2008 11:29 AM

tigeraptor, the beyond apocolypse is after the apocolypse on insane difficulty,and the secret survival is on the insane apocolypse level in the place near the paradise exept before you go up to the place with the platform take the downward route.


press down then up to get a flying dinosaur to release you

Tshingis June 10, 2008 3:11 PM

how do i activate the cheats?


gassnake, the boulder doesn't actually have to be moving.

hwilliams June 11, 2008 5:52 PM

how to beat twin peaks on insane? i think it has something to do with dactyl rides, is there a way to switch from dactyl to dactyl, if so how and how do you get the timing right to do it... thanks

Anonymous June 11, 2008 10:58 PM

hwilliams, I've beat that level pretty easily on Insane, so I guess I'll try to give you some tips:

1. See how the hill tends to go in an incline-ledge, incline-ledge pattern? You'll want to jump from ledge to ledge because this will keep your speed much higher than simply climbing when you can't get a dactyl ride.

2. If you get a dactyl, try to press the up arrow key as it releases you. This will give you a significant boost forwards, which might be enough to let you catch another dactyl.

3. Get as many speed flowers as you can.

4. On the downhill sections, boost like crazy.

hwilliams June 12, 2008 3:50 PM

wow, just beat it thanks for the tips!

jklee_star June 13, 2008 3:39 AM

I am having a blast with this game and I look forward to the future projects of Pixel Jam totally destroying my work ethic and social life.

I spent most of the night trying to get the damn Giga egg and I started crying blood before it was collected. I wish to spare some players from this fate. Spoilers ahead:

I found the egg on the Medium Speedrun of "Rainin' Lizards." Run through the level and about midway through there is a cliff and at the bottom of the cliff is a tar pit. To the left of the tar pit, in an alcove that is a bit off screen, is the Giga egg. I assume the egg is there anytime this tar pit shows up, since I've only seen the tar pit on one level. Your mileage may vary.


Does anyone know what it says on the "Something weird has happened" screen? I can only make out something about left-clicking.

Anonymous June 14, 2008 1:58 PM

how do you get to paradise or secret survival?

P.I.Staker June 14, 2008 7:58 PM

How do i get to the spaceship survival?


I just figured out a cool trick.
You can double-jump by hitting up or 'W' the moment you collect something in midair, like a bird or an egg in a tree. You can do it multiple times on one jump, too.
