Love Dinosaurs? Play These Games

Whatever you’re into, there’s a game for that.

In this regular series, our editors recommend a handful of games perfect for fans of a specific theme.

This time, it’s dinosaurs. Think T-rexes are terrific? In raptures over raptors? We’ve got something for you.

The Pokémon GO-Like One
Jurassic World Alive takes the real-world location-based catching and collecting of Pokémon GO and evolves it further. Like the more recent films in the series, creating hybrid dinos is a big part of all this, too—alongside taking your scaly pals into battle against other players.

Find ‘em, collect their DNA, and then make your very own dino breeds.

The Survival-Adventure one
ARK: Survival Evolved drops you onto a dinosaur-infested island with only your wits to keep you alive. Cobble together some shelter, a weapon or two, and you might just survive for long enough to be able to tame some of these prehistoric beasties. This is one for those of you looking for something deeper and more challenging.

Uh-oh. You’d better run unless you’ve got a decent weapon.

Something for the Little Ones
If your kis is going through a dinosaurs phase, then we’ve got a couple of games that’ll keep them entertained.

Archaeologist: Jurassic Life will stealthily teach them something while they play. It lets your little darlings play at digging up and discovering dino bones before piecing them together, among other things. Ross from Friends would be proud.

Dinotrux, meanwhile, is a little less educational but it does have you working together with your fellow robot dinosaurs to build a bigger and better world.

In kids app Archaeologist, you piece together skeletons. It’s where play meets learning.
