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.

Ratings and Reviews
Best Game, but some issues
Ark is one of the best games on mobile devices, and I have spent the most time playing it by far. It is much better than a lot of open world survive games with better graphics, and far less limitations. The only problem I have it the crashes. I almost always play on multiplayer servers, and there is quite a bit of lag. One time I was doing the quest to ride around the island on a raft, but if you leave the raft the quest resets. I was two hours in and no less than a kilometer from completing the quest when I crashed. I had crashed before at a standstill and when I logged back on I was fine because I was still on the raft. This time, on the other hand, I was moving as fast as the raft could go, so when I logged back on I was no more than a couple meters off the raft, but that was all it took to make the quest reset. Two hours of progress just down the drain. Better than when I lost two months when I was wiped by the alphas...I play PVE now. I know how I’m making this sound like a horrible game, but it is truly amazing. There is nothing better than finally taming that griffin that you have been waiting for for the past two hours. All I’m saying is make sure you have some time on your hands to get into the higher levels, and don’t be afraid to lose some progress. Overall, it’s one of the best games.
Ark Mobile Is Great But Needs To Be Fixed
I really do love this game and I don’t have an Xbox, PlayStation, or PC but when I saw it on Mobile, I got really excited and downloaded it instantly. Playing it with my tribe members and friends is really great but there’s a lot of problems In the game that I believe needs to be fixed. First, my game tends to crash a lot for no reason. I can be flying in mid air and sometimes my game will crash and when I load back in, the game says that I’ve died from falling. Secondly, there’s a lot of server crashes. Me and my friends will be on discord and sometimes there’s server crashes and we all get kicked out the server at the same time. Thirdly and Lastly, I made an industrial grinder just not too long ago. I’ve seen PC and Xbox players recommend making a grinder because it helps with getting a lot of XP quickly. It took very very long to make an industrial grinders day it was very expensive since I’m a solo player but when I finally made it I was so happy I finally finished making it but when I placed it down and started to use it I got really mad and irritated. I put as much stone as possible into the grinder but I barely got XP out of it ... a whole grinder full of stone only got me 17 XP. I’ve even put ascendant tools and armor into it but I still barely get XP. I love ark but I really do hope these problems are fixed soon.
Bugs need to be fixed
I have played since beta and let me tell you the game has improved. It is a fun game when it’s working right and when your actually playing consistently online. I am rating the online version (multiplayer). Otherwise if you leave the game for a day, some dinosaurs even the dangerous ones spawn in my land and kill off some of my dinos. Also my Dino’s which you end up bonding with disappear. Another thing that really urks me and upsets me is that all my hard work that my husband and I did vanishes if my husband doesn’t log on for awhile. That needs to be changed because I log on very religiously to prevent anything to break down. I believe the leader should have all the rights of structures and anything else that was built on the land to be reset on my time of logging on, Not the person who built it. It is very frustrating and way too many glitches, just stick to single player so you don’t lose anything or any dinosaurs. Lastly, the limit cap of dinosaurs per each server should be changed to a cap for each player instead. Look I bought the PC version which is full price and yet still love playing on the mobile. If you can’t fix the mobile, I will simply delete it from my mobile device and let my other friends/family all switch to either game console or pc version and play together there.
Other than that when I do log on and play with whomever and or single player it is a very fun and addicting game.
