Phenomenal Game

This game has earned all of its high star ratings. Really, it looks like it wouldn’t be very nuanced, but in my opinion, it is the ideal free game.
The game’s premise is simple. You dig for fossils, you put them in the museum, you get money to dig for more fossils. Toss in some upgrades here and there, and you are able to progress through the game. Typically, you’d expect for this process to require you to wait for hours for you museum to collect coins. However, you are able to actively play this game and have no need to wait for the next upgrade. This is something that shouldn’t be so rare, but this game allows you to catch up with the current content. It doesn’t put day long build timers like you’d expect it to, it lets you get right into the next part of the game, right away. Apart from the simple gameplay, it is just aesthetically pleasing. It doesn’t have a whole bunch of banner ads, it focuses on simple animations of the mining and museum, and even puts in an animation before a forced ad appears, allowing you to be prepared (I also noticed that the ads shifted from being primarily unskippable ads into either instant skip or 5 second skip ads, which was also a big plus).
If you’re looking for a game that is challenging, this isn’t the right choice, but I would still recommend this app because it is probably one of the best finds on the App Store I have had in years.

So far, so good, hopeful for an update!

UPDATE: I’ve paid for the ad removal now because not only has the developer delivered on updating the app, but they’ve done more than I expected, adding not only new dinosaurs, but also expanding to non-dinosaur fossils. I hope there is more in store. I’ll buy a diamond pack with every future update. If you read these and are open to suggestions: Please consider adding crocodilians as a new clade, and add more options to the exhibit placement menu. Allow us to move the tiers up and down without having to remove and replace all of the stands.

Old review: Just finished the game, and I must say that I’m pleasantly surprised by this app. The ads are fair and your progress isn’t held back by any time unlocks or anything like that. I love paleontology and all things dinosaurs so this has become my new pass-time app when I’m in-between chores, errands and work. This app isn’t particularly educational, so don’t get it for that reason. I’m currently holding off on purchasing the “no-ads” option for a few reasons. Firstly, money is tight all around right now—thanks Corona Virus. Secondly, while the game has been very fun, I beat it in a fairly short time. That said, supposedly there is an update planned soon. If this actually happens, I’ll gladly support this app monetarily.

Fantastic Game

This game is great for if you want to play it every now and again, and if you want to play it and get to the end in a fairly short amount of time- i like that you can organize the dinosaurs as you please and also that you have differences in the sizes of each spot for dinosaurs. I would like of you could arrange each dinosaur to a location as you please so you could maybe have a Quetzalcoatlus at the entrance for example in place if where the second “medium stand” is. I also think the Ads are fantastic in the way they are used in the game. I believe it is balanced perfectly so you aren't gaining too much or too little from watching one. I think that maybe adding a way to change out a medium area for two smaller places, or a large for medium or two small spaces, etc., would be nice as well in order to, say, remove one dinosaur because you like another one more? Over all though, i love the game, and think it’s going great, and i can’t wait for further updates! (Also a personal little request I’d like to add, could you have a Suchomimus, and/or Allosaurus added in to the game in the following update please? They’re my two favorite dinosaurs!) Great work on the game!
