This game never ages.

With colorful graphics that have become a Pangea trademark, you're a lizard which has to gather eggs to survive an ice age. It sounds silly, but the action is involving. It's also quite challenging, once you graduate to the higher levels.

Great, Mac-only game!
Nice idea, fun to play - and I love the stereo mode with anaglyph glasses for a real 3D experience!

I'm still struggling with Level 2 and I can't get through the gates - the ones with a half dome in middle and sharp edges on top. In level 1, I could shoot at the center and sometimes it would open. I could also fly "though" it if I press the jet pack while going up.

So far, in level 2 I just crash! Any helps? I'm getting verrrry frustrated!

Also I saw that using F12 and F2, F3 or F4 could restore health, jet fuel, etc. but these do not work for me. Nothing happens. Any clues why not?

I do enjoy this game though ... it's becoming an addiction. So help this addict get through Level 2 if you can. Thanks!

Well hopefully by now you have figured it all out. Helpful hints. Save all your missles for the robot launchers and those pesky tiny laser R2D2 guys. In level 2, you have to be on the lookout for all the missles launchers and especially those pesky R2D2 laser guys. The gates open when you blast the small statue eyes. Once the eye is blasted the gates open. Don't waste weapons on the big brontosaurs, fly around em. You may need to shoot the TRex especially near the eggs. Use missles...they are your main weapons. Collect every weapons pod you can. Use the spray weapon to disarm the rotating electric towers...each one. You can collect enough of that weapons to keep blasting them til they black out and the elctric field will fall. Missle the robot missle launchers. In the elctric field...circle the outside between the towers and the rock wall, swerving in and out to blast the towers until they are all dead, watch out for the launchers. My order is the palm field, blast the eye to open the gate just outside of that. Collect all the weapons outside the gate before entering. Then the electric field, then the lava pit. Watch for the laser guys here near the volcano.I kill off all the robots first...then collect weapons and eggs. Collect each arae's eggs before moving on to the next area. This level 2 is my favorite. Wait till you get to level 3... the gates have rotating windows...have to time it perfectly...you'll use your thrusters then. Goodluck

Just bought a Mac Mini (m a die-hard linux person); never played any real video games.Found nanosaur 2; tried it and am hooked. What an awesome game and how well it runs on my liitle Mac mini. Well done!

It took me a while to get the keyboard flight controls under control and to find how to switch and aim weapons. I'm still stuck on level one but I'm getting better.

I have a couple questions, though. What are the weird ballon-like things on long, tall sticks? I can destroy them fine, but they never seem to attack me.

And what are these strange, open, hemispheric, concrete-like things? I can shoot at them like no tomorrow but nothing seems to have an effect? yet they don't seem to want to harm me either?

Since I am a complete stranger/newfie to the gaming world, I have no idea of whether or not questions like these are 'appropriate.' I looked for 'hints' (cheats?) on the Internet, but found nothing.

I suspect that the balloon things are just obstacles that can be shot down. The concrete posts open the large gates when shot down once.

There are no actual cheats for Nanosaur 2, but you can put it on 'Kiddie Mode' if you go into settings. This will remove the majority of monsters. There is also a key that will level-skip you (it's found somewhere in the Readme file).

Hope this helps a bit.

I gather that the balloon like objects are like mines, and will blow up if you hit them. Fly into one and see what happens?

game came w/ sister's imac. i transferred to my powerbook and it runs just fine in tiger. no probs here. it's a fun game that takes a minute to learn flight control. but if you have a bit more patience and coordination than the other reviewers, you should have fun. the only downside is that you must complete a level to save a game and the next level begins w/previous stats. all in all, an enjoyable challenge.

Stupid game. I hate it when I check the controls and there is no way to shoot the damn thing. Spacebar doesn't shoot anything. Most boring demo.

Try holding it down for a second to charge it up.

That's what the default weapon does.

I've had this problem too, but I notice that you have to fly through the small rotating discs near the ground to arm yourself. You also have several different weapons, and you are probably trying to fire when you don't have any weapons selected. To change arms, press the left hand Apple key.

Do they test these things BEFORE they release? Crashes in Tiger, same as comment below. Universal must not mean universal is it?

Look into crash log.
In some newer compilings, no more G3 support (even if app is fast enough).
If you have an G3 - thre can be an incorreckt cpu type in the crash log.

You need to look into a spell checker.

Crashes constantly in Tiger. I can only play the adventure game - all others crash. The same happens when mission fails - the app quit.
