How do I enable the Dinosaur game?
1. Enable the Dinosaur game on Chrome for desktop
The usual place where one would find the silly dinosaur running game is in Chrome. It’s available on all platforms where Chrome is supported and, besides actually being offline to start the game, there’s a way to start the game by entering chrome://dino in the Adress Bar/Omnibox followed by the Enter key. After you hit Space, the game will begin so prepare to jump over cactus hurdles and avoid crows in your next record-breaking run.
If you are a big fan of the game, you might want to check the DinoSwords game that takes on the original game and adds a lot of weapons to spice the run-and-jump gameplay a bit. Want your favorite T-Rex runner to use a flamethrower or shuriken ninja stars? It can be done with Dino Swords. You can find it, here. The game is available offline, too.
2. Play the Chrome Dinosaur game on Android and iOS
Due to the popularity of the already cult offline game that started as a gimmick, Google offers Chrome widgets on Android and iOS as the shortcut to dino. The only thing you need to do is have Chrome installed on your Android or iPhone. Sadly, it’s just a shortcut and not the full game in a resizable widget.
Here’s how to use the Chrome widget to turn on the Dinosaur game on Android or iOS:
- Tap and hold on to the Home Screen until editing is enabled.
- On Android, open Widgets. On iOS, tap on the plus sign.
- Look for Chrome in the widgets list and find the Chromium Dino.
- Add the widget to your Home Screen. The next time you tap on the widget, it should take you to chrome://dino where you can play the game.
