Since you now have the Android version which is completely FREE, there is no reason for Colorful Dino (Demo) to exists so I just removed the installer from the Itch and Game Jolt websites. If you run the Demo version it won't work anymore and it will tell you that a New Version is available. The Demo version was a completely different project and keeping that project up to date with the latest bug fixes and features takes some time for me. As you know, I am a solo developer and I have to carefully decide where to put my efforts, so download the Mobile version on Google Play if you want to try or play the game!
