Finally! I was really craving for this and I'm not alone, here are some of my neighbours reactions when I sold them a CD-copy of your game for 5 euros:

"This is better than a Walker-Texas Ranger Box Set - The Complete Seasons I asked my wife for Xmas!"
"The wait is over and I can't even see because I'm blind!"
"Honey, forget sex tonight, I've got better things to do!"
Working on a RON game!!!!!

Normally I would be flattered, but this is exactly what I expected.

Yippe-kay-yeah, I just love how I can attack/chomp most of the things in the game. :D Great writing, and grand work overall, I really enjoyed it. ;)

Congrats on the release!  This looks pretty awesome. 8-)

Just finished the game right now:

That was an INCREDIBLE amount of fun!!!

At times it really felt like I was playing the old Rampage arcade game: CRUSH-KILL-DESTROY!!!

RAAAAAAAWWWWWWRRRR!!!!

And also the puzzles were very clever for those moments of clarity when I wasn't just smashing everything in sight, and I must say WELL DONE right here on fitting so many complicated puzzles into a game where you play a 30ft tall dinosaur bent on revenge.

Wonderful game which really shows off the effort you have put into it!

Upon completing the game, here are my thoughts:

Overall, I really enjoyed the game. I like the creativity of the extra actions such as use power, attack and push. The graphics and animation are just perfect for this game. The amount of destruction, where destruction is usually the solution to things :), is just satisfying. But in addition to the fun interface and environment, the humour was very entertaining, I did notice the Canadian reference in there. As far as the puzzles, they actually were right in that spot where you had to do some thinking to solve them without getting to the point of being frustrating or unreasonable. I realize that this is one of the most challenging parts of designing a game because it's impossible to know how the user approaches the puzzle, so kudos for that!

Unfortunately I did get stuck at a dead end that was a result of a glitch. I'm glad I asked and found out what went wrong so I could load and try again.

Anyway, overall a great job!

Cheers

I get to feel envious of the two friends right above ...
I'm currently stuck in the scene where the ship docked.

I consider brilliant the idea to use the goat on the first level as a discrete tutorial. Helped me a lot! The next scene gave me a bit of work to understand the last thing that should be done ... this part made me mad!

/!\

Spoiler: ShowHide
 I thought the next scene was independent with no connection to the former. As I had not caught the canvas ... I was totally lost without the goat to help me. LOL

At the time I need to take a break, but i will return to investigate that fireplace...  8-)

Thanks for this fun and challenging game!
Congratulations, Mites!
