***PLEASE NOTE: This game officially supports iPhone 7 and newer models, and iPad models from 2015 to present.***

Dive into the ultimate mobile dino-adventure with ARK: Survival Evolved! A massive game world combines with 80+ unique dinosaurs and primal creatures for you to capture and tame - making for a survival experience bar-none. Meet up with other players and friends in this Jurassic-era world, to form tribes and work together to build colonies of survivors.

Based on the genre-defining adventure from PC and consoles, ARK: Survival Evolved challenges you to survive and thrive on a mysterious island, where you start out alone and unarmed. Gather resources and craft tools to build shelter and hunt. Expand your domain while capturing and taming dinosaurs to do your bidding. Make new friends online, form tribes, and build mighty structures to defend against man and mega-predators alike!

Features of ARK: Survival Evolved include:

- 80+ Dinosaurs: Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame, train, ride and breed the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground.
- Discover: Explore a massive living and breathing prehistoric landscape as you find the means to survive, thrive, and escape on the Ark.
- Craft and Build: Using any means necessary to survive, craft weapons, clothes, and items, and build shelters, villages, or even large cities.
- Survive Alone or With Others: Group up with, or prey on, hundreds of other players in a large-scale online world or choose to go it alone in single-player mode.
- Join a Tribe: The 'Tribe' system encourages cooperation, by supporting dynamic parties to share resources, XP, and re-spawn points.

To many Bugs

Ok game but way ti many bugs. Same as PC or console basically however Dino’s glitch through walls and spikes while being randomly teleported on other side of walls or spikes when rendering. Dino’s targeting AI is wonky as all get out. Set to “passive” “Stop” Scaro, Dilo will glitch though walls or battlements to target Dino’s on other side. Flying away and coming back resulting in normally needing to re collect Dino’s from an 2x2 area… not problematic but makes it difficult to keep food stocked on some Dino’s. Gates and door will randomly not shut or open, Have had this problem for months no fix, Fly away door or gate stays open leading to finding Dino’s as-well witch is annoying. Door is set as locked aswell. Random save crashes, Once in an while, game auto saves, game will crash and will lose progress to last save. Game will also randomly crash when using sleeping bags. Have not had an issue with any other sleeping item besides sleeping bags however when going to sleep game will black screen then go to phones Home Screen. Some supply beacons around mountains mostly but has happened crops map, will spawn in the air and not reach the ground at all. I have these same issues both in my IPhone 7 and 8. However these are the problems I’ve noticed, literally everything else is absolutely amazing 😍😍😍😍😍😍 I love this game!! Have been playing for years on the Xbox with the bro never gets boring!!

Read before YOU $

So I’m in the military so some areas have no service for a long time or time to play when deployed. So I added it up I spent a little over 3.4k$ on this game an while I was away they shut done the server I was on (you would think they would save an account like that) but when I got home an tried to play my account an server was gone it took me days to try an figure out how to contact support since there is not links in the game itself (grove street games email-btw) I let them no what happened an they told me all I could get back on my account was the blue prints (arketypes) so all the gold chains, griffin crowns ,crafting stations, wall an armor mounts statues an thousands of amber was gone an they would not help get it back! They also said they try really hard to let players no before a server shuts down I ask how do you try hard when I never got an email they said they let players no in-game an on Facebook but yet if your not playing the game your not looking at there site. the game itself is good for mobile game lots of happy memories (just don’t spend unless your ok with losing it) they really need to have disclaimer on the game page so people no about keeping an eye out for when they switch servers or you will be out of luck an they won’t compensate you for anything even if you have the receipt. Gl with the game have fun (I do plan to talk to app store about this)

Best game EVER!

This game is awesome, even in single player mode, which I always play in! There are so many things to build and so many creatures to discover! Right now I have a city of buildings and a dodo farm in this game! The rewards are great, too, so all of the things that I always wanted in a game are in ARK! Some people say that there are glitches or bugs in the game, but I hardly see them at all, and the ones I do see either don’t affect the game OR can be ignored. Even when you die in the game, you can grab all of your items again, and even when items are lost, all of the resources can be easily collected and are never locked or impossible to get. Here is a list of the bugs/glitches I saw. None of these really matter, but it would slightly improve the game if they were fixed: Compies following me, graphics error on trees when you cut them down, two groups of the same item in different slots, small pet getting stuck in the air after I destroyed the rock it was standing on, dodos stuck standing on each other, animals getting their heads stuck in walls (lol), coloring issues at night, description saying that the cooking pot/campfire has zero fuel when it actually has over one hundred fuel when it is lit, and that’s all. Thank you for the excellent game, but do fix the errors to improve the gameplay of other players and I. Thank you very much.
