Have a kid that likes to play with your Windows Phone device? Here’s a game they might like. Check out Dopey and the Meteors. You play as Dopey the Dinosaur who needs to escape the meteor shower. The game is based on Dopey Dinosaur books, which were created in the 1980s.
Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.
The goal is to make your way through themed levels, avoiding the obstacles, and grabbing as much fruit as you can to keep Dopey’s energy up. Dopey is moving automatically. He’s mostly on a skateboard. You just need to jump, duck, or thwack bushes out of the way. You jump by tapping on the right side of the screen. Pressing and holding on the left makes Dopey crouch down. Tapping the right side of the screen while in the air makes Dopey spin and hit bushes away with the tail.
If Dopey trips or hits an obstacle, the energy level decreases a little bit and you continue playing. We think it should decrease a lot more to make the game more difficult. The game ends when the energy level runs out and the high score gets recorded.
