Webgame Wednesday: One Man and His Dinosaur
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Oct 5 2011 11:41 AM ]
So, you've hired a Tyrannosaurus Rex to act as a sheepdog. You're not too smart, are you? Lucky for you, you've got a pretty good thunder lizard on your side in One Man and His Dinosaur. All you've got to do is guide the dinosaur with your mouse as he runs across the screen. Keep the sheep flock together. Don't let them get eaten by badgers and the like. And avoid all those pesky World War II bombs littering the playing field. (Where the hell does this game take place anyway?)
