ROBOT-REX: Side-Scrolling Dino Brawler

ROBOT-REX: Side-Scrolling Dino Brawler

ROBOT-REX is a fake iOS game that I used as Adobe Illustrator practice over the course of about a week. Wanting to improve my vector skills, I picked one of the game ideas I had rolling around, spent a couple days with concept art to find the right overall style, and then dove right into making the actual art assets, assembling them in the mock screenshots you see here.

The concept behind ROBOT-REX is that you control a robot (cleverly disguised as a T-Rex) sent back in time to collect scattered dinosaur eggs for your scientist masters. On the off-chance that the dinosaurs see through your flawless disguise, you will be forced to engage in an exhilarating side-scroller of dino fisticuffs. Your main attack utilizes your gigantic robot maw, but you can also deploy stinky flowers to distract the herbivores. However, your robot’s energy supply will drain every time he gets hit, so be sure to consume the nutritious AA and 9V batteries hidden around the world!
