Imagine this, if you will. It’s way in the future and dinosaurs once again rule the world, but, they are more technologically advanced than we are. Your race travelled back in time to grab eggs of your ancestors to help re-populate your future race? Wow, huh? Anyway, very odd story (obviously drug induced), but it turns out to be a fairly interesting gather and shoot game.

You are a flying dinosaur, pterodactyl I would assume, flying around this futuristic / pre-historic world gathering eggs and destroying other dinosaurs and various planet defenses. The flying controls are pretty good — but the game itself can be rather difficult. Some tight squeezes that you have to fly through. The on-screen controls are overly complex and confusing — you can see from the screenshots below that it is riddled with different controls.

Your goal is to collect unhatched dinosaur eggs and deliver them to worm holes while avoiding or destroying planet defenses and other dinosaurs. Shooting is fairly good and auto-targets. It can be difficult at times to get that last egg and move on to the next level.

Nanosaur 2 is a pretty good and interesting arcade game and for $1.99 it’s a pretty good value. The graphics are great for an iPhone game. I just wish the game had a little more variety and a sane story.
