Some of the free games over at Indie Gala that are listed and hyperlinked at the end of this review have changed since last week and today is the last chance to get ''Oxenfree'' (worth £14.99/$19.99/€19.99) free from Epic Games. The free game will be changing to the non Steam version of ''The Witness'' (worth £29.99/$39.99/€36.99/₽699 via Steam) later today.
I've only had time to play today's game for a short time. I'll update the review later today if I have time.

Installation:
Dino Dawn downloads to a 73 MB zip file that unzips to two files, (a set-up executable and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 146 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dino Dawn
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop; the shortcut to the game, plus three others ''Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and a shortcut to a free online game. These latter three shortcuts can be deleted once the game has been installed. The Themida wrapper may alert your security and even block the installation; there are details about this issue in the read me that unpacks from the downloaded zip file.

The Game:
Despite having been released for almost a year on Steam, there are no reviews for Dino Dawn and the only a couple of videos from the distributor, Falcoware Games and the Steam Store.
Dino Dawn is a cartoon like platformer where you collect dinosaur eggs, avoiding various obstacles and moving around parts of each level using moving ramps, ladders etc. To destroy enemies you can either jump on them or use the red peppers (that look like carrots). To progress to the next level you have to collect all the dinosaur eggs on each level. you do get a white arrow that points to the nearest egg There is a level map that allow you to replay previous levels; you start with four lives. Each level has different coloured platforms.

Conclusion:
A reasonable retro looking action platformer with cartoon like graphics. If you enjoy platform games then check this out. It's not my favorite genre. There are only a few platform games I've really enjoyed plying over the years (a Star Wars platformer from a Play Station game around the mid 1990's, as well as Gish, Wik & the Fable of Souls and Super Meat Boy); each having an original slant on the genre).

If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via Steam HERE; for £3.59/$4.49/€3.59/₽119 (10% off until 8th April).
Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Dino Dawn to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

Same thing today with AVAST blocking the installation of this game saying it has a PUP in the installer. I don't get it for I checked the setup file against Virus Total and the Avast engine listed there says it's clean. This is the third game in a row that AVAST has blocked the install with the same PUP malware message. I'll report it as a False Positive again to AVAST for whatever good that will do .................. Thanks anyway.

Dan J, Arrgh. I feel like I have been transported to the twilight zone. I went to run the setup file again expecting to get blown out of the install by Avast (which brings up the Report a False Positive feature) but no, this time the setup proceeded just fine, prompted me to where I wanted the game to be installed and then installed the game. Go figure. Yesterday and the day before I tried to install those games more than once only to be Blocked by Avast on each attempt with the same PUP Malware message.

This looks like a good platformer, but I have not gotten through the 1st level yet. There are no instructions and no options. The game downloaded fine. Arrow keys are not functional. Use ADWS. The object is clear, collect the eggs and the peppers and destroy the enemy. That is the part I have not figured out yet. The screen says to hold the space bar and shoot, but does not say how to shoot. Just holding the space bar does nothing. Jumping on the enemy to destroy it causes loss of life.
