Review: Gigantosaurus The Game

Gigantosaurus The Game

We received a digital download code for the game Gigantosaurus The Game from Outright Games as part of my participation in a Twitter Party today at 11am. Opinions are my own.

I am always on the lookout for new fun games for my kids. Andy and Eva has been playing more video games lately and that’s great. I love that they are bonding over several games. I was able to get chosen to participate in a Twitter party for Gigantosaurus The Game and with it came a download code of the whole game that the kids could play on the Nintendo Switch. The game has two major parts to it. There is the adventure portion of the game and there is the racing portion of the game.

The racing game has pretty simple controls but a fun experience. AS you zip along the track you have to collect objects and avoid obstacles. Meanwhile much larger dinos are walking around and through the course. You have to be quick as you steer aredound their giant feet.

In the adventure portion of the game you can switch between the four core characters: Rocky, Tony, Mazu and Bill if you are playing in single player mode. If you are playing multiplayer then everyone teams up together to play through the adventure. You have dinos running around collecting things, putting on disguises to avoid raptors, shooting basketball hoops and even using bouncy shoes. This open world platformer has the little dinos running all over the place doing simple and fun things. They can bounce real high float on plants and solve puzzles. It is quick and fun and adapts the Disney Junior show pretty well.

Mazu exploring

As you play through the game you will need to use the skills of each of the dinos. You can easily switch between all four and have them right there when you need them.

I also have a coloring page for you below so that you can click the image and download the .pdf file, print it at home and color it.

In 2012-2016 Toys to Life games were huge. There were Skylanders, Disney Infinity and LEGO Dimensions. I recently decided that these toys from those series were simply taking up space around here so I pulled them off the shelf and started using them again in my video lifestreams. I am starting with LEGO Dimensions and going to play through the game over the course of the next several weeks during my LEGO Lunchtime Livestreams.

Twice a week will be building LEGO and twice a week will be playing LEGO Dimensions. I am learning that my toys from the series aren’t all working properly. So far three of the characters do not get recognized by the Toypad. Those are Gizmo, Stripe and Home J. Simpson. I haven’t tried all of them yet, I’m in the middle of downloading all the updates I need on the XBox. Maybe they will start working again, I am not sure. But we’ll see. I would hate to not be able to do the Gremlins world because I have no character to unlock it. I can still play the Simpson’s world because I have a working Bart Simpson, just not a Homer. So far I think people are enjoying the stream. Here’s wat one looks like.
