Google Chrome Dino Run

One can start the game by pressing the space bar on the keyboard when the monitor shows the dinosaur along with a message that reads 'No internet". The game embedded in the no internet page shows the dinosaur leaping from left to right with cactus coming in its way all along and the job of the user is to press the space bar to avoid getting out from the spiky plants. The user can continue scampering endlessly as confirmed by one of the creators of the game, who, in a Google blog had said that it is built to max out at approximately 17 million years, the same amount of the time that the T-rex dinosaur was alive on Earth.
