Nico's Run - A high quality C64 game based on the Chrome Easter Egg Game T-Rex!

If you don't like endless runner games look away now! If however you want to play one of the best endless runner games we've seen for some time, then take a look at Nico's Run by OldSkoolCoder; A brand new C64 game which is based on the Chrome Easter Egg Game T-Rex! In light of this news, if you want to see if the game's worth playing, both Per Ola and Saberman have done a video showing the game play for Nico's Run. A game which has been entered into the Phaze101's Retro Programmers Inside Group (RPI) Game Jam.


The original game as an Easter Egg in Chrome was actually a mini game featuring a T-Rex dinosaur, that's only accessible when you're disconnected from the internet. This game however which has its roots based around the endless run of a Chrome game, doesn't just feature obstacles as mentioned above, but also the game is themed around the creators two Dogs "Nico" and "Aston". As in her/his words "Nico was not well at the time this Game Jam was running, and my viewers and I did not want to replicate the game, we wanted to use the essence of the game and create a new game, so its about Nico trying to run away from his brother Aston, as Aston would not leave him alone while he was unwell."

  1. It's cute, but lets reserve "high quality" for productions such as Sam's Journey and Eye of the Beholder.
