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.



Let me start off by saying that ARK is one of the best and most fun mobile games. But OMG how many creatures are just way to OP. The Parasour is just so fast whenever I try to knock one out it just runs away and I can never catch up with it, not to mention that it stops for only like one seconds. There are more but I’m just gonna say my general idea. This game honestly seems more difficult then the PC version. Since you can’t see as clearly because of the graphics and buttons on the screen it makes it even harder to play the game. Not to mention when your in the water and you have fifty Megapirahnas behind you. I play on medium all the time and it’s really stressful which I think shouldn’t happen unless you choose hard mode or above. Now I have been playing this game for like two days but from what I can see there doesn’t seem a way to save your game. By that I mean to save it and like make a new game while still having that game saved. For example, if I finished playing and save my game and the next day I want to make another game I would still want to be able to go back to my original after. The last thing I want to change is to add a different option to holding the bow and arrows. The double tap just doesn’t work chief. 😕 I didn’t expect to write this much 🙂 I hope you can consider these things

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.
