***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.

Good game, but WHY!

I like the game, but single player can get really boring cause it’s just me by my self, but so many people are so toxic that it’s basically impossible to play on a public server just so I can play with friends. I mean, I understand having fun raiding tough bases and having a good time. But, why would someone with who has level 300 everything decide to go and grief new players with thatch huts. What do you gain from that. Not loot, what would I have that you don’t have 1000x that. Is it just fun to destroy weak players like ants. What is the point. I know it’s not everyone. But I’ve had to switch servers 3 times now because someone who has no use for destruction destroys everything I’ve spent days on. It’s like I have to pay for the premium or something to be able to do anything, and that makes me want to pay even less. Essentially to all of you who just like to ruin all fun for the sake of your destructive tendencies… WHYYYY!!!! And I know you could say well try to hide. You don’t understand. I’m not even high enough level to go hide. As in, you need certain things to go build in hidden areas, and I haven’t unlocked those yet. I will try again I guess. But I assume there’s going to be a point where I either manage to somehow reach a high enough level to survive. Which a doubt because most of the sadistic f#@$s who destroy everything have no life. Or I reach a point where I give up and get rid of the toxicity. Let’s see shall we.

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.

Let wimps be wimps

All people on here complain about is that the game is to hard ether you can’t catch something don’t know where to go or get killed at the start of a spawn that is the way the game is ,stop trying to make all the aspects of the game easy so you don’t have to do lazy players it’s a challenge for a reason it’s realistic in real life you are not going to catch a parasaurolophus the whole key to the game is taming that’s why they say tame your way to the top .literally everything about this app is great spot on the only thing I would of liked more is if single player you could have creative mode for free not all stuff make a way you gotta earn it but the amber is not easy to get the prices for the store is nuts cuz people pay for the game but you could make single player just like the console version to where you can use the. GCM or spawn codes make that for single player but maybe leveled so free players,(players who play the game with what they find or earn) can play the game without having to spend 1000s of amber to get the simple things from the store make it where you can earn each part of your creative mode abilities through a pursuit but only make the mission available on offline single play . Thank you for your time and consideration great game I hope it stays popular
