jetpacking around collecting eggs and fighting other dinos.

I don't know about you, but I'd LOVE to see the game remade with the game tech we've got today.

Man I remember playing that in elementary school!

NANOSAUR! Oh man, this really takes me back to my childhood! I remember wasting so many hours on it when I was ten-years old. Never collected all the eggs, but I did find a cheat where, if you hop on the back of a petrosaur and let it take you all the way up, you get infinite health and ammo. God, so many good memories.

I was actually too afraid to play this game when I was younger even though I love dinosaurs.SpongeBob SquarePants - Random Angry Patrick Icon

You should make concept art for games

Definitely something I'd like to get into.

There was a game with such a cool premise?
Incredible picture.
Tapwing Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed there was, I hope someone might pick up the premise again. It'd be neat to see what it could look like with today's tech. 

And thanks :D
julian0123 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, it would.

Nice art.

good game, the only one I got to play was the one with the pteradon, though, not that one...

I played as the flying dinosaur.... Geez, I suddenly forget what he was.....

I loved that game! I still have it, and still enjoy playing it in my free time. If Nanosaur was ever remade, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Amazing fanart of it; cool that you made his robotic arm a prosthetic.

Oh my gosh, I wondered what this game was called! :O I loved it so much! I'm going to go play it right now--thank you!
lagartoloco94 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015
Kinda reminds me of this iphone game called Velocispider
Skianous Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd buy the shit out of a remade Nanosaur; it just has *so much* potential !

I could never tell if the 'saur's laser gun was a prosthesis or if he just put his arm inside, but I like the prosthesis concept better !

There is a nanosaur 2 where you get to be a pterosaur- it's so much fun! I remember playing the first nanosaur as a kid and being terrified of the t-rexs, never got to finish the game >_<

One of my favourite games! Nanosaur holds a lasting impression on me.
NightFuryWolf Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Hobbyist
I remember it!
Seiji-Amasawa Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Absolutely incredible! Nanosaur and its sequel were quality games, and I still hold on to the hope that it will be remade. Pangea Software, the studio that developed it, has lots of other fun imaginative games to its name as well!
Tapwing Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
i'll say, pangeas games are a lot of fun, but there's always SOME enemy or level that managed to scare the flip'n heck out of me ^^' 
Seiji-Amasawa Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed. I would get a feeling of dread every time I started up Nanosaur because I knew I would have to deal with the terrifying dinosaurs!
Aviatre Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2014
Oh hell yeah, Nanosaur!

I think I played Nanosaur 2 first, when you're a Pterodactyl. The first one was just as fun, though.

A remake would be pretty neat, yeah...

I've got this game, it still jumpscares me XD I'm so glad I'm not the only one who knows this one, I love you~
Tapwing Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
ah man the jumpscares, XD pretty much the main reason I hated  triceratops in that game, never knew when those buggers were going to explode from bushes.
RubyDaSquirlz Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Student Writer
Everything in that game jumpscares me XD Unless my comp's just not showing very far ahead XD

I would flipping love to make a game like this.... let alone play one! <3! Especially if they looked realistic like this! :33

amazing as ever... I love the showy figure in the background.... >:3
Tapwing Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
i'm a little surprised no one's made a newer game like nanosaur yet. 
I think the dinosaur trend needs to come back. ^^

Thanks, i've been having some fun messing around with blurry backgrounds and a pissed off mommy rex was the perfect subject.
