HUBILUB reviews Nanosaur

BTW, I'm counting this as my 5000th post review

As I write this, numerous battles are taking place over the world. Fiery debates about who is superior, who is the rightful king of all kings. Yes, the console wars are more heated than ever with the latest generation. I myself will not take sides in this [1]but will instead talk with you about possibly the most awesome game ever.

Nanosaur

This image alone should be enough to get you to buy this game

This may come as a surprise to you, but Nanosaur, one of my favorite games of all time, was originally a Macintosh exclusive for 4 years until it got ported to the PC in 2002. Yes, Macintosh did in fact have awesome games in the past. [2]Who knew?

But we are not here to talk about the history of gaming, we are here to talk about Nanosaur. Now, you may be asking yourself "What is this game, and why should I even bother with it?" Well, good sir, I shall answer your questions right now. Although I suggest you hold on to your hats, less you want them to fly away into the air when your head explodes from this awesomeness[3]

You will believe a dinosaur can fly...

In the distant future, human scientists have discovered a way to bring dinosaurs back to life. But, sadly, a plague erupts, killing every single human being on earth. Now, as genetic inbreeding may cause the downfall of dinosaur society, the hyper-intelligent dinosaurs decide that the only way to save themselves is to find other dinosaurs. How will they do this? By traveling 65 million years into the past.

You play as a nameless Velociraptor in tiger-stripes, going around on pre-historic earth trying to collect 5 different colored eggs from 5 different stages, and you must do so before the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs hits the earth. At your disposal you have, get this, a jetpack, and a gun that can shoot lasers in different forms, and even mini-nukes.

Best. Plot. Ever.

This game is freaking awesome. And the best thing is, you don't even have to follow the mission objectives. Sure, you can beat the game in under 30 minutes, but the fun thing is going around the different stages, all of which are integrated with each other so load-times between them aren't necessary, and shoot up dinosaurs with your awesome weapons.

You don't want to mess with my heat-seeking missiles, bitch!

I've played through this game tons and tons of times, never getting tired of it. And how could I anyway, what with it being so awesome that even Psychonauts shrivels before its might. And, since they released Nanosaur: Extreme with the tagline what Nanosaur was meant to be - a total kill-fest, I don't see any reason at all as to why you shouldn't locate this game and buy it. Seriously, you would be doing yourself, and your thirst for dinosaur blood, a huge favor.

Here is the official website so you can check out information about the game

Also, be sure to know the difference between Nanosaur 1 and 2 if you plan to buy, since they are very different from one another.

[1] The PS2 has already won anyway
[2] and they probably still would have, had it not been for Microsoft
[3] I miss my explosion picture...

Nice Review, even if a bit short.

This game sounds incredible

There's not really much more to say.

You're a dinosaur from the future, with lazors and a jetpack.

Now buy it!

Holy crap, this game looks a-fucking-mazing.
Is it on Steam? Or anywhere I can buy it?
OT: Great review, btw.

That...

I ...

It just blew my mind. It's like asking a 4chan user to describe what is "win"

This game used to be on the computers at my second elementary school (I went to 3, don't ask). It was fun, but not as fun as it would be if I played now, because I fucking love dinosaurs.

DO WANT.

Here's the games official website

Should be information there.

I remember this game.. back when Windoze Box's and macs both got all the games..

Good times. Can't remember actually beating it tho. I do remember that if you find a high spot and fly straight up, you'll get super health and extra ammo and other powerups.

AWESSSOME.

I remember that game!

The name sounded familiar when I read the title, but I fucking loved that game, that was when Jurassic Park was awesome in my eyes.

Do want back.

I've played this in some museum once, somewhere

Didn't understand it, thought it was really complicated

I guess that's becuase I naturally assumed it couldn't be as simple and awesome as it turned out to be, and read to much into it as a result

Dinosaur? With a jetpack? WANT NAO.

I'm beginning to think you played nothing else as a child. Good review though.

Why won't they remake this? Hmm? Give it all the fancy trimmings we have now and just keep it simple like it was then?

The greatest games always get overlooked. I miss this one.

Oh god. Every fucking iteration of Dilophosaurus in popular culture I've seen since Jurassic Park is too small, has an frill around its neck & spits poison.

Well, I think the most surprising thing about this game is that I've actually played it (and thought it was awsome). That may not sound that surprising, however I can only remember my family owning one mac and that was before primary school, so yeah. I remember it being awsome, it was on my grandads computer :) I might buy it.

I remember playing this in school on there MAC computer, oh how I loved it:)

That's not true. I played other games that I shall review too!

But first I will become obsessed with them. One at a time..

O_O
I am filled with a burning desire to own this game. Even beyond my burning desire to wreak havoc and destruction. We had Macs for a short time in the gifted program I was in, but they were gone the second year I was there. Now I am sad.

On the upside, the two Win98 boxes we had played Gruntz.

... Flying dinosaur with- hey! My mini nukes!
Oh well. Nice review, game sounds epic.

Edit: And yes, the PS2 did win.

This game was the most incredible thing ever!

Nice review, thanks for bringing back some very pleasant memories.

Why have I not heard of this game until now?!!!!?!

YoUnG205:

It's not the most popular game ever, so it's no surprise that you haven't heard of it. Check out some gaeplay at youtube and see if it's your deal.

Favorite dinosaur, hands down.

The ridges do it for me.

Holy Shitz!

I used to play that on my Grandad's Mac!

If you jump on a Pterodactyl, you got all the guns and maximum ammo.
Chaos ensued...

That game looks like... a big pile of AWESOME I Want,i want,i want

good review also.

Wait, I totally remember that.

It was in the lava stage I think..

Oh, and don't put your name in the title. It's unprofessional, to say the least.

I want my fans to know that it is my review.

And I'm not a professional. I simply wanted to blow your minds. If I was professional I would have talked about the incredibly awesome soundtrack and the rather poor but still awesome graphics.

That game looks silly :\ but never has there been a time when dinosaurs with jetpacks and laser beams have let us down!

I might have to try this...

This. Looks. So. Awesome.

I MUST ACQUIRE THIS GAME!
Tell me where you bought it.
NOW!

I loved this game at school!
I miss it so.

TheNamlessGuy:

NOW!

I don't remember. It came with my Mac when I was little or something.
