There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World Alive App Is Here!

There’s a dinosaur in our backyard…
 

Jurassic World Alive is a new app that is sure to grab every dino lover’s attention. In the app, you are a member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG), and you are on a mission to save the dinosaurs. Much like Pokemon Go, you explore your surroundings in search of dinosaurs. Once you track down a dinosaur, you pilot a drone and collect DNA samples from them. You can create normal dinosaurs, or pretend you’re Henry Wu and make some hybrids! After assembling a team of dinosaurs, you then head over to the battle area and face off against other players. Prizes for winning include (but aren’t limited to): coins, DNA samples, and darts for DNA collecting.

The app is now available for Android on Google Play, and for iOS in the App Store. Start hunting those dinos!

 
As mentioned above, this game is similar to Pokemon Go in a lot of ways. The game uses your location for placement of dinosaurs and supply drops, and it has warnings about being safe while playing (thanks, Owen!). The drone/firing the darts can take a little getting used to, but the controls seem very responsive. All the dinosaurs in the game have profiles that detail their battle stats, which you need to pay attention to once you step into the battle area. They start you out in the Fallen Kingdom arena, and there are different battle arenas that unlock as you win more battles! Battles get more exciting as you level up you dinos (by gathering more DNA), and mixing up your team combinations. Unlike Pokemon Go, supply drops are not always at landmarks, and they appear more frequently in suburban/rural areas.

Jurassic World: Alive also has a fun AR feature, allowing you to bring the dinosaurs you’ve captured to life in the real world via your phones camera. This creates a fun photo and video opportunity many fans are already taking advantage of!

  1. I personally have zero interest in wasting my time on this game. I was really hyped when the first teaser got released months ago, but after seeing all of the Canadian gameplay every single bit of that hype is gone. Good luck to those who are going to play it though!

    1. I can second this. As someone who lives in Canada and has played the game since it was released here, it was fun at first then just kind of became a drag. Updates made strong dinosaurs you had weaker, and made certain weaker dinosaurs stronger, the consistency in attacking during battle was all over the road — among other grubs. I deleted the game and am holding out for Jurassic World: Evolution! That said, it’s not a terrible game by any means, just not my cup of tea.

  2. It’s rubbish, it’s ludia trying to cash in on the pokemon go craze except their gps tracker doesn’t even work.

  3. I’ve access to it for a month or so now and quite enjoy it. Sometimes it’s a bit boring and repetitive, but it’s not a game you play constantly. It’s something you chuck on when you have sine free time to kill, see if there’s anything local that’s interesting, and if there isn’t, you get back to normal life.

    The AR mode is super fun though, way better than Pokemon. You only get to see AR in Pokemon when you’re in the catch screen. In Jurassic World you get to walk up and around the dinosaurs which is nice and fun. I can see why some don’t like it, but I find it fun.

  4. During the first few days it has been fun, but it really lack social aspects like the gyms and raids Pokemon GO has. Just some sort of co-op stuff you could do with friends would be really nice, cuz right now its a solo adventure (and battling unknown random dudes in PvP).
