I have downloading this game on 2 devices and it is amazing when it works, but when I try it on my iPad, the game boots me back to the Home Screen. I can only get it to work on I iPhone which just to happens to the version without the widescreen/landscape camera. Also, Archeopterx has a lot of model glitches and that needs to be fixed. I also hope we get more creatures seeing as there is a surprising small cast of creatures. I do sure hope we get diplodocus, dinornis and hapagornis later.

Easily one of the coolest apps I’ve ever purchased.

Short version: It’s only $3 for on-demand David Attenborough in your pocket.

Longer version: I almost never write reviews. As a man in his 30’s with no children you might wonder why I purchased and played with this app. The AR works extremely well on my phone, the narration is fantastic and informative. And it’s just generally *really cool*. I have to be honest though, having watched MANY David Attenborough documentaries I knew I was in for a treat. Can’t wait to show my cats!!

Been waiting and waiting

All in all such a nice app but the promise of new creatures seems to be a ruse. My grandkids are very disappointed and always ask about new creatures. They were excited seeing what was coming next shown in the credits but as with the dinosaurs…this app seems to be extinct. If this app is no longer being updated please say!
