and herbivores. It's based on the three movies Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III. Not only dinosaurs from the movies appear in the game, there are also dinosaurs not seen in any of the movies.


In the beginning, you choose an island. After your decision you start out with a small amount of items. To get dinosaur fossils and park attractions, you've got to do researches. When a dinosaur fossil is 50% complete, you can start breeding that dinosaur. It will take a while and the fun has just begun when your first dinosaur has come to life. There is a large variety of dinosaurs in the game, from the small and cute Dryosaurus to the big and dangerous Tyrannosaurus Rex. To make the park visitors happy you've got to be prepared for everything! Dinosaurs, toilets, attractions, restaurants and more!

Apart from normal park building, there are also side missions like photographing dinosaurs, or rescuing visitors. Once you complete all of these missions, you unlock "Site B" where you can choose whatever dinosaurs you like, put them on an island without fences or people, and watch them roam free.

Taking care of the dinosaurs[]

Remember that your dinosaur has it needs. You need to feed it, cure it's diseases and if it's on rampage, stun it with a tranquilizer via helicopter. To make a dinosaur needs 50%, but if you reach over 50%, the dinosaur will be better and better the higher the % is. Dinosaurs created with 100% lives longer than dinosaurs with 50%.
