Genre: Tower Defense

It's a tower defense game in which you play a marmot and fight against dinosaurs. The dinosaurs try to steal your barbecue, so you have to defend it. The game has a nice childish comic style. It is perfect for kids. For grown-ups it's easy, but i still had some fun with it.

Positive:
+ nice comicstyle graphics
+ lots of levels
+ the game is not taking itself serious
+ perfect for children and youngsters
+ levels don't take too much time

Negative:
- too easy
- not much to do after clearing the campaign

I had my fun with the game just chilling and playing one level at a time. For hardcore fans it has too little to offer.

Fun gameplay: ca. 10 hours

Achievements:

Type: Grind
Difficulty: Easy
Time needed: Medium

I've never been the kind of gamer to sit down and plan out with the Tower Defense genre. If you think along the same lines, don't stop reading and don't ignore this title. Go Home Dinosaurs! is probably one of the most rewarding games available on Steam and probably one of the best titles to start out with the genre. It has a variety of difficult angles, challening corners, and heart-pounding timing to save your BBQ from threatening Dinos! If the storyline sounds totally ridiculous, just wait until you put a DJ booth down and destroy a dozen Compy via the power of your record scratching. It's supposed to be ridiculous, and loves to point that out about itself! It's a perfect little title to pass the time or bring yourself into a genre you've never thought you'd have the patience for. It has its challenges, but it wouldn't be fun otherwise! Here's your chance to go back in time and send those Dinos home! I highly recommend Go Home Dinosaurs! whatever type of gamer you are.

Baby's first tower defense. Not bad, mind you, but rather underwhelming.

The game has a couple of clever ideas and mechanics, but in the end it's laughably easy and has little to no replay value whatsoever, aside from perhaps getting all the achievements (which are mostly focused on grind, rather than skill).

The overall artstyle is cutesy and child-friendly, full of obscure references, clearly made with both kids and adults in mind. But the latter will get annoyed by it rather quickly, mostly due to repetitive sound assets. Same goes for the music, which is so terribly bland that you'll most likely end up muting it.

As for the gameplay, the puzzle-like "tower" placing seems like a decent idea at first, but sadly most of them are essentially worthless, while others are used reguarly throughout the game, making most of the levels rather tedious and boring.

It's a game you can safely give your kid to play. Other than that it can be relaxing, but you'd better get it either at a high discount or for a mobile device.

This game is both bad and good at the same time. This means that the game falls under the category of 'good.' The gameplay is quite appealing and the story, to be honest, literally makes me laugh, in a good way. In this game, you defend 3 steaks from being eaten by dinosaurs. The game even goes overboard and calls this game the "#1 BBQ Defense Simulator." It's just funny in a good way. The graphics are appealing and the voice acting, yes there IS voice acting in a tower defense game, is pretty good. Now this is the part where I don't like the game, the difficulty. I'm not used to the traditional Tower Defense games since I'm a Plants vs Zombies junkie but is it me or is the game pretty difficult. I'm like just 2-4 levels into the 2nd world and good lord is the game getting really hard. Overall, the game is good. The game can be quite difficult but it's fun anyways. Final Score: 9/10

Decent time killer, nothing above that... Can be frustrating at times, and voice of main character (and his sentences) are awful...
Either way, can recommend it for a few hours of soundless fun :)

☺ Interesting mix of tower defence and puzzle mechanics.
☺ Cute and colourful art style suitable for any age.
☺ Easy to learn and play but still challenging to perfect levels.

☹ Limited replayability.
☹ Starts off very easy.

Go Home Dinosaurs! is a lovely game that I can heartily recommend for fans of tower defence games, regardless of age. You take the role of a lil' gopher as he coordinates his friends to defend their BBQ from hungry dinosaurs. Tower placement is enhanced as each tower has a specific shape and size, requiring you to plan ahead and maximise space with optimal positioning. As the dinosaurs head towards your delicious steaks (or carrots, if you'd prefer!) you're tasked with collecting additional coconuts to create more towers or can even provide support and get involved in the defence itself.

A little undercooked but still tasty and filling.
