Dinosaur Game

Dinosaur

This code creates a Dinosaur game on Pixl.js, similar to the one available in the Chrome Web Browser when you're offline:

  • The bottom two buttons move left and right
  • Top left button jumps and/or restarts the game

This can easily be ported to other devices by:

  • Making sure g is an instance of Graphics
  • Ensuring BTNL/R/U are set correctly
