Jurassic World Game Common Dinosaur Guide

This guide will show you all of the commonly found dinosaurs in the Jurassic World Game.  Find out the best dinosaurs to use for battles and earning income.



The Triceratops is the first dinosaur you unlock in the game. By the end of the tutorial, you will have one of these already in your possession. It is considered a common dinosaur, which means you can obtain one via any common card pack or on the market for 100 DNA. It’s a herbivore, so it will perform best in battle against Pterosaurs. At the maximum level of 40, the Triceratops has a generally high hp of 274 and a generally low attack of 70, making it nothing particularly exceptional; the Triceratops should not be your main battle dinosaur.

Also, at level 40, the Triceratops produces 1280 gold every five minutes. This is only a lot if you are online every five minutes to collect it as this dinosaur will stop earning gold after five minutes if you don’t collect it. Overall, the Triceratops is not particularly great at winning battles or earning income, but it is a good dinosaur to use when you’re first starting out.



The Majungasaurus will most likely be the second dinosaur you encounter as well as your first carnivore. Carnivores are beasts in the Battle Arena, so as soon as you acquire a Majungasaurus, you’ll be able to start dominating in the arena. You can obtain one from any common card pack or for 110 DNA on the market. To unlock the Majungasaurus on the market, you’ll need only to complete battle stage one. Being a carnivore, the Majungasaurus will perform best against herbivores and very poorly against amphibians.

At level 40, the Majungasaurus has a slightly below average health of 224 and a slightly above average attack of 86. This dinosaur is no exception to the carnivorous trend of being glass cannons in the battle arena, though the Majungasaurus is a slightly less extreme version of one. This dinosaur is a great dino to start leveling as he is a viable fighter for battle arena beginners, but has a rather underwhelming coin generation rate at 9216 every 3 hours at level 40.



The Alanqa is likely the first pterosaur you will encounter. It is unlocked in the market by completing the second battle stage, which is fairly easy to do. As such, the Alanqa is one of the first dinosaurs you’ll pick up while playing Jurassic World. You’ll be able to get one from any common card pack or through the market, where it costs only 120 DNA. The Alanqa is a great starter dino to begin leveling, as it will be your first pterosaur, allowing you to put up a stronger fight against amphibians, and it has a very high coin generation rate for a common dinosaur.

The Alanqa generates 7680 coins per hour at level 40. This dinosaur is also a pretty good pick for arena battles if you’re just starting out. At level 40, with an above average attack of 83 and an above average health of 217, this unassuming pterosaur stands a pretty good chance in the beginning stages of the battle arena, especially against amphibians.



The Limnoscelis is the first amphibian you’ll encounter in the game. It can be obtained through any common card pack or bought on the market for 130 DNA. To unlock it on the market, you must complete the third battle stage. It is strongest against carnivores, which are abundant in the early stages of the game, making this dinosaur a strong pick in the battle arena early on. The Limnoscelis follows the amphibian trend of having a large amount of health but a low attack.

At level 40, the Limnoscelis has a whopping 266 health and a much less impressive 68 attack. This dino is a tank in the arena and is best reserved for taking hits and saving up battle points. We discuss this concept more in-depth in our Battle Arena Guide. The Limnoscelis is also a decent choice for generating coins. He has the same level 40 stats as the Majungasaurus at 9216 coins every three hours, making him a viable money maker early on in the game before you have access to more efficient money makers.



The Argentinosaurus is the second herbivore you’ll come across in the game. To unlock this hulking beast, you’ll need to have completed the fourth battle stage. After you’ve unlocked it, you can purchase it for 160 DNA in the market. You can also find one in any common card pack. This thing is a beast in the arena. It has the same tanky quality as the Limnoscelis at 281 health but a with a much more reasonable attack of 72. The Argentinosaurus is a great dinosaur to level up as you begin to grow your park because it can be used either as a main battle dinosaur or as a “sacrifice” in battle, used to soak up damage and accumulate battle points for your other dinosaurs.

This dinosaur can also be used to supplement coin income. It generates an incredible 7488 coins every 30 minutes once it reaches level 40. However, this still isn’t really enough income to sustain your entire park as you’ll need to collect every 30 minutes to take full advantage of the Argentinosaurus’s impressive coin generation. If you’ll be online for awhile, it may be worth it to cluster your decorations around your dinosaurs with shorter coin cycles until you log off to take advantage of their quick income.



The Tropeognathus is unlocked in the market by completing battle stage six, but can also be found before then in any common card pack. It is a pterosaur, so it is best used in the arena against carnivores. This is a great dinosaur to level, and you should purchase as many of them as you can once you unlock them. The Tropeognathus has very respectable battle stats at 81 attack and 260 health. Making it a force to be reckoned with in battles and able to help you progress more quickly through the battle stages. Not only does it perform well in the arena, but it is also a reliable source of sustainable income for your park, should you choose to invest in leveling a good number of them.

At level 40, this dinosaur produces 15668 gold every six hours. This makes it a great money earner, especially in instances where you are away from the game for long periods of time, such as at night or during busy days. This is really the first all around strong dinosaur you’ll find in the game, and unless you’ve spent a considerable amount of resources leveling up another dinosaur type, you should definitely be investing food and coins into this dino when you’re first starting out.



The Utahraptor is the same type of dinosaur as the iconic raptors that appear in the Jurassic World film. This dinosaur is really strong in the battle arena, even better than the Tropeognathus, with only one less health point at level 40 and almost twenty more attack with 99. The Utahraptor also has a very respectable coin generation rate of 12673 every two hours. If you can be on every two hours to fully optimize this dinosaur’s coin production, you can easily sustain your park with just a few of these little creatures and the right amount of investment.

To unlock the Utahraptor on the market, you’ll need to complete battle stage seven. Still not too difficult a task, but the battle stages begin to get a bit scarier at this point, and a decently leveled Utahraptor will certainly make grinding through them much a simpler task. The Utahraptor costs a pretty hefty 200 DNA on the market, but you should have some DNA saved up at this point, and investing in a Utahraptor is definitely worth it early on.



To unlock the Labyrinthodontia, you’ll have to complete Battle Stage 9. The battle stages get progressively more difficult, and battle stage nine is where it really starts to pick up. By this point, however, you should have accumulated some pretty strong dinosaurs like the Utahraptor or the Tropeognathus. On the market, you’ll be able to purchase the Labyrinthodontia for only 130 DNA, which is significantly cheaper than the Utahraptor and the Tropeognathus. Despite being significantly cheaper than other dinosaurs of its tier, the Labyrinthodontia is not worth investing in.

In the battle arena its only use would be soaking up hits and collecting battle points for other dinosaurs seeing as it has a high health of 266 and an unimpressive attack of 68, but there are other dinosaurs that you should have available to you at this points that do this better. This dino is a decent supplement to your main income as well with 10599 coins every three hours at level 40, but there are still better common dinosaurs out there to invest in.



You’ll unlock the Hatzegopteryx once you complete battle stage thirteen. At this point, the battle stages really do begin to get difficult to defeat, but as long as you’ve spent some time leveling up your more powerful unlocks like the Utahraptor, you’ll breeze by them without too much trouble. Once you’ve unlocked this winged beast, you can purchase one on the market for 200 DNA.

In the battle arena, this dinosaur is best used as more of an “assassin” in the arena because of its high attack. It excels at effectively utilizing the points saved up my beefier dinosaurs. 200 DNA is a hefty cost, but the Hatzegopteryx, with 11290 coins per hour at level 40 and a health and attack of 253 and 97, is definitely a solid choice and a worthwhile investment at this point in the game.



The Guanlong is another type of carnivorous raptor in Jurassic World: The Game. This dinosaur can be unlocked by completing battle stage fourteen and can be purchased on the market after unlocking it for 170 DNA. You can also find it in any common card pack. The Guanlong is really nothing special in the battle arena, with a health and attack of 255 and 80 at level 40.

However, its decent coin generation rate of 15422 coins every six hours makes up for this as you can wait six hours before collecting and still take full advantage of this dinosaurs money making potential. Overall, there are certainly better dinosaurs to choose from at this stage, but if you like the way the Guanlong looks, it wouldn’t hurt to pick up one or two of these beasts.



Once you’ve completed battle stage fifteen, you’ll be able to purchase the Diplocaulus on the market for 190 DNA. As with all other common dinosaurs, you can also obtain this one from any common card pack. At level 40, the Diplocaulus has a massive health of 284 and a mediocre attack of 73. This makes him, like most amphibians, a good dino to soak up hits and collect battle points for your other dinosaurs.

However, the Diplocaulus’s battle stats aren’t what make him worth the 190 DNA; it’s the 28,628 coins it generates every twelve hours that make this dino a real gem. This is likely the first dinosaur you’ll come across that generates coins on a twelve hour cycle, and it is definitely worth it to invest in a few of these even if only to bolster your park’s income a bit.



The Tuojiangosaurus can be unlocked by completing battle stage seventeen and will cost you a mere 130 DNA on the market. This dinosaur makes for another decent pick to soak up hits and save battle points for your other battlers with a mediocre attack and health of 73 and 235. This dinosaur is best used not in the arena but rather in the park, making you money.

With a whopping 17424 coins generated every six hours, the Tuojiangosaurus has both a sustainable generation rate and a convenient cycle length. This will definitely be the best money maker you’ll pick up at this stage of the game, and it is definitely worth the 130 DNA each to pick a few of these stegosaurus-like creatures up.



This dinosaur can be picked up from the market for 170 DNA once you’ve completed battle stage twenty-four. The Pelecanimimus is considered more of a late game dinosaur compared to most of the other common dinosaurs. Once you’ve progressed far enough into the game to unlock it, however, it’s worth it to spend the 170 DNA to unlock it. With respectable battle stats of 266 health and 83 attack at level 40, the Pelecanimimus is a reasonable choice in the battle arena.

It also has a great coin generation rate of 12811 every three hours, as long as you’re able to fully utilize its generation rate by collecting every three hours. Overall, this dinosaur is a strong choice to either fill a spot in your arena line up or to supplement park revenue, but you shouldn’t treat it as your main asset for either of these purposes.



The Bonitasaura is also more of a late game dinosaur, requiring you to complete battle stage twenty-six in order to purchase on the market. It is priced on the market at only 150 DNA. It is a long-necked herbivore, much like the Argentinosaurus. This dinosaur is really nothing special in the arena, with sub-par stats of 263 health and 67 attack. Despite being entirely underwhelming if put in the arena, especially considering how late in the game you’ll be able to unlock it, this dinosaur really is a powerhouse when it comes to making money for your park.

At level 40, the Bonitasaura makes a 28570 every 15 hours. The 15 hour coin generation cycle makes for a very convenient 1904 coins per hour. This is definitely a good investment later in the game if you’re looking to boost your park’s income.

Jurassic World Game Battle Arena Tips & Cheats

So, you’ve spent some time building up your park and leveling up your dinosaurs, and you think you’re ready to put your hulking, bloodthirsty beasts to the test in the battle arena? Well, you’re in for a surprise if you think you can make it through Jurassic World’s battle arena with teeth alone.

Even the strongest of dinosaurs will crumble in the battle arena without a smart, strategic mind backing them up. In this guide, we’ll give you some tips to help you convert the raw power of the dinosaurs that you’ve built up into the mean green reptilian killing machines that dominate the arena and earn you all sorts of awesome prizes.


First, let’s go over the basics of the battle arena. Battles in the battle arena are fought through a series of turns. Each turn, one player gets a certain number of battle points which can be spent either on attack or block, or saved for the next turn. Saved points will be transferred to the next dinosaur should the first be knocked out or switched out. You can put up to eight points into attack or defense, but you can only save up to four points every turn.

Each dinosaur has a fixed amount of health and a base attack, which you can find at the top of the screen. You can take up to three dinosaurs into each battle. Damage dealt for each attack is based on how many points you’ve spent on attack and how many points your opponent has spent on block. For example, if you spent two points on attack for 200 damage, and your opponent spent one on block the previous turn, you would only do 100 damage. The key to winning arena battles is accurately predicting when your opponent blocks and saving your points at the right time.


Type Advantages Make a Huge Difference

If you learn nothing else from this guide, learn this: type advantages make a huge difference in the battle arena. In Jurassic World: The Game, the type of your dinosaur (herbivore, carnivore, pterosaur, or amphibian) actually increases or decreases its effectiveness in battle in the sense that certain dinosaur types have an advantage over others. Any dinosaur that has a type advantage in a battle does 50% more damage and receives 50% less.

This is HUGE and will make or break a battle. Always be mindful of what type of dinosaurs your opponent has, and if you find yourself in an unfavorable matchup, it is almost always worth it to spend one battle point and swap out your dino rather than trying to continue the fight with a 50% disadvantage. Carnivores have the advantage against herbivores, herbivores have the advantage against pterosaurs, pterosaurs have the advantage against amphibians, and amphibians have the advantage against carnivores. If you forget which type has the advantage over which, you can always check again by tapping the “Info” button on the dinosaur select screen.

Don’t Overspend Your Points

If you’ve already dipped your toe in the battle arena, you’ve probably come across situations where you’ve put way more points into attack than you needed to to take out the enemy’s dinosaur. Sometimes those extra points you could have saved had you not overspent them can make or break the match. To prevent overspending your points, simply keep track of what your opponent is spending his or her points on.

For example, if your opponent has four points and spends two on attack, it’s probably best to spend two points on attack plus however many you need to take out the dinosaur, just in case he spent those two on defense. On the other hand, if your opponent used all four of his points on attack last turn, only use however many points you need to take out the dinosaur because you know he has no points to spend on block.


Keep Track of How Much Damage Your Dinosaurs Will Do

This goes along with the last tip about not overspending your points. In the battle interface, directly to the left of the attack button, a symbol will appear with a number next to it. This number represents how much damage your dinosaur will do. Keep in mind, this number is the amount of damage your dinosaur will do not including the reduced damage from a block your opponent may perform. Use this information to more accurately plan out each move.

This applies to not overspending your points as well as not underspending them. If you know how many blocks your opponent is capable of using, measure out your attack damage so that you don’t leave your opponent with a sliver of health remaining and another full turn. Keep in mind that your dinosaur’s base damage grows exponentially with every point you put into attack. Being able to plan ahead and keep up with your and your opponent’s points is the single most important thing for you to learn if you want to be successful in the battle arena.


Order Your Dinosaurs Efficiently

Prior to a battle starting, you are given the chance to select the dinos you want to use and in which order you want to use them. This step in the arena battle process is more important than you might expect, especially in the Battle Stages and Event Battles. When you are facing a computer controlled opponent, you get to see information about the opponent’s dinosaurs including the order in which your opponent has placed them. Use this advantage to choose a dinosaur as your first that counters the opponent’s first. For example, if you see your opponent has an amphibian as their first dinosaur, choose a pterosaur as your first.

This will either give you a huge advantage in the fight or force your opponent to spend a battle point swapping out his dinosaur for one that doesn’t have a type disadvantage. If you don’t have a dinosaur that counters the opponent’s dinosaur, at least make sure you have a dinosaur positioned in your first slot that won’t start out with a class disadvantage. The worst thing you can do in the dinosaur selection screen is match your first dinosaur against one with a 50% advantage. Unfortunately, in live battles neither you nor your opponent can see each other’s dinosaurs. In this situation, it’s best just to stick to your strongest dino (or your point collector, which we’ll cover later in the next section) and hope that you don’t get a bad matchup.

Sometimes It’s Best to “Sacrifice” a Dinosaur to Save Points for the Others

It can actually be pretty effective to use your first dinosaur to just save up points for your other dinosaurs to use. A sort of “sacrifice” if you will. It sounds inhumane, I know, but it really is an effective battle strategy. Because you start off each battle at only one point, you can gain a huge advantage if you stick a big, beefy pacifist in there first and just collect points for a few rounds. Keep in mind, this won’t work if your chosen sacrifice is too fragile; you’ll end up with only an extra point or two and one less dinosaur than your opponent. Your sacrifice should have as many hit points as possible and doesn’t necessarily need to have very high attack as you won’t be using it to attack (interestingly enough, these traits are generally specific to herbivores).

So, if you want to follow this sort of play style (which, as mentioned before, is very effective albeit a tad cruel) you should focus on leveling up one of your herbivores and then backing it up with a leveled up carnivore (which is the type of dinosaur which typically does the most damage). For your third dinosaur, I’d suggest using one of the other two types of dinosaurs just so you have a pterosaur or amphibian on call to get that type advantage. Also, be careful about using too many carnivores in your line up because, although they do the most damage, carnivores are typically more of a glass cannon in the sense that they do a lot of damage but can’t take very much. This is just one of many ways to play, but keep these tips in mind when choosing your own group of dinosaurs to fight with.


What are the Different Battle Types?

Now on to the fun part: winning prizes! There are three types of arena battles you can participate in, each with different prize systems. There are the battle stages, live battles, and event battles. The battle stages are the first battle type you’ll encounter, and there is only one for each level in the game. The prizes are usually decent, and they get a lot better each time you level up. You can earn some pretty rare dinosaurs from these, and the battles are typically pretty easy considering you know what you’re doing. The only real downside to the battle stages is that you only get one per level, so I suggest you do these as often as possible.

The second battle type you’ll come across are the live battles. These are generally the most exciting because you’ll be facing a real opponent. However, the live battles are also the most risky because it is much harder to win against a smart human opponent, and even if you do manage to win most of your live battles, you earn prizes based on a “prize wheel” system. This means that each prize you earn from live battles is completely random, and you’ll often find yourself winning prizes like “25 coins” or “10 DNA”. Not very impressive. Another downside to the live battles is that you have to pay five Dino Cash for each battle. Dino Cash can only be obtained by purchasing it with real money or earning it through quests or random events. So, if you’re only in the arena for the awesome prizes, live battles may not be a good battle type for you.

The last battle type you may come across is the Event Battles. These battles show up randomly and are usually there as a result of a certain event that happens in the game. Event Battles are much like arena battles in the sense that you are facing off against a computer controlled opponent and you can see the opponent’s line-up. The difference is you typically have to have a certain dinosaur at a certain level to participate. For example, one of the recent Event Battles was the “Carnotaurus Event”. In order to participate, you had to have a Carnotaurus at at least level ten. The other thing that distinguishes Event Battles from the other two battle types is its prize system. Depending on the event, Event Battles are where you will typically earn the best prizes. However, to earn these prizes, instead of winning just one battle, you have to win three, and you usually only have a certain amount of time to complete all three. Definitely complete any Event Battles you see if you have the entry criteria as the prizes you can get from them are the best.

Now you know everything you need to know to effectively command your dinosaurs in battle and wipe the floor with your opposition. Hopefully, you and your dinos will win lots of battles and, with a little bit of luck, get some awesome prizes along the way.

We hope you have as much fun battling it out in the Battle Arena as we did!

Jurassic World Game Tips & Cheats

Jurassic World: The Game is a new game that improves on the park building concept of Jurassic Park™ Builder, but adds exciting new gameplay with the new Arena Mode. In Arena Mode, you’re given the opportunity to strut your flashy dino hybrids around and battle it out against other players in real-time. However, in order to get your dinosaurs into tip top arena fighting shape, you’ll have to revisit your park-building basics and build and manage your own Jurassic World Theme Park. In this guide, we’ll cover some general tips that may help you manage your park a little bit more efficiently and reach that colorful beast of a dinosaur you’ve got your eyes on (I’m personally set on obtaining my very own Tyrannotitan).


Open your Free Card Pack as Often as Possible

In Jurassic World: The Game, you’re the given the opportunity to open a free card pack every six hours. These packs contain things like coins, food, DNA, dinosaurs, and special event quests. The packs are usually very generous about the amount of coins and food they give and can result in a huge boost in resources, especially during the early game. They’re definitely worth collecting every six hours as these packs, along with quests, will account for most of the resources you earn within the game when you’re first starting out, and to grow your park, you’re going to need a lot of coins and food.


Focus on Completing Quests

Your other main source of income when you’re first starting out will be quest rewards. The game provides plenty of quest content that will last you well into the higher levels of the game, so don’t worry about running out. These quests are often simple to complete, with tasks such as “level up a dinosaur” or “place a decoration” and can provide hefty rewards of coins, food, and XP. If you’re looking to level up fast and reach the next battle stages, complete as many quests as you can.


Carnivores Typically Generate the Most Coins

Now that you’ve got a foothold in the park building business, it’s time to start setting up a more consistent source of coin income. You’ll want to do this by housing plenty of dinos, and leveling up the ones that bring you the most coins. While it may be tempting to spend your food (which is most likely still in scarce supply at this point) on the triceratops that you started the game out with, it is often much more efficient to spend it on carnivores, as these tend to bring in more revenue than any of the other type of dinosaur. In this case, you should follow the advice of the park owners in the movie if you want your park to grow: “Bigger, scarier, cooler, and more teeth!”

Always Pay Attention to the Rate at which Dinosaurs Generate Coins

Don’t be deceived! That dinosaur that generates 200 coins every five minutes won’t actually make you more money than that dinosaur that makes 1000 every hour. When the info panel for a dino says that it makes 200 coins every five minutes, what it is isn’t telling you is that after it has produced those 200 coins in those five minutes, it won’t produce any more until you’ve collected those 200. So unless you’re online every five minutes to collect coins, it’s almost always better to invest in the dinosaurs that take longer to generate income. This trait isn’t really specific to any type of dinosaur, so just make sure you check and see how long the cycle is for each dinosaur you own.


Be Smart About Placing Decorations

Decorations in Jurassic World: The Game aren’t just there to look good. They actually provide boosts to the structures and dinosaurs in range of them! The boosts don’t amount to much at first, but after you’ve obtained a good number of them and place them strategically, they really start to add up! In the image above, I’ve placed my amber stone in such a way that it is able to boost five structures at once (six if i squeezed one in the top left and shifted everything to the right a little. You’ll notice that some of the dinosaurs in the picture have been boosted a whopping five or six percent! I’ve placed most of my decorations in range of my Majungasauruhs because it, being my highest leveled carnivore, is my main money maker. By being smart about where you place your decorations, you can significantly increase the overall income of your park.

Don’t Expand If You Don’t Need To

As I’ve stated previously, coins and food will be really hard to come by in the early stages of the game. The dinosaurs, decorations, and buildings you acquire throughout the game all come in different shapes and sizes, and it’s important to effectively squeeze all of them together and not take up more space than you need to. You shouldn’t be spending coins on expanding your park until you absolutely have to. The price for each expansion goes up every time you purchase one and can take a huge toll on your overall resource count if you aren’t careful. It’s up to you to efficiently use the space in your park, and effectively place all of your dinosaurs, buildings, and decorations. If you’re careless about it, you’ll be left with a lot of open space that’ll add up, and you’ll be spending all of your hard earned coins on park expansions.

Save your Dino Cash!

It’s tempting to spend the cash you start out with or earn from quests on things like speeding up construction, production, or dinosaur evolution, but you’ll regret it later on in the game when you’re introduced to live battles. Live battles are like arena battles but are played against real players in real-time. Not only is it exciting and fun to show off and battle your dinosaurs against another player, but you’ll be given the chance to spin a prize wheel and win huge prizes if you win the battle. These live battles each cost five Dino Cash, which you’ll only really have a problem having enough of if you spend too much of your cash on other things. If you’re not so much into arena battling, then it’d be alright to throw away some Dino Cash here and there, but the live arena mode is a very exciting part of the game, and you should at least give it a shot!


Be Smart About Speeding Spending Dino Cash in the Hatchery

If you truly have to spend some of your Dino Cash to speed up dinosaur hatching, make sure you consider your options carefully. Whenever you decide to speed up an egg, you’re given two choices: you can either instantly hatch the egg in one of your occupied incubators to make space for the next egg or purchase a new incubator to hatch your new egg in. Keep in mind that purchasing a new incubator is really more like renting one in the sense that you only get to use that incubator for one egg before having to purchase it again. Instantly hatching one egg costs a certain amount based on how much time is left on the egg, while opening up another incubator costs a fixed amount for each incubator: 10 cash for the first one, 25 for the next, and so on. So it turns out that if you’re willing to wait for both eggs, buying another incubator can often be more efficient than speeding up the first egg. Always check to see whether instantly hatching an egg is more or less expensive than buying a new incubator, and you’ll be able to save some serious Dino Cash over time.

Now you’re equipped with everything you need to know to build up your Jurassic World Theme Park! You’re on your way to discovering all the cool dinosaurs you saw in the movie and even creating some of your own! Once you’ve spent some time with the game and leveled up some dinosaurs, and you’ve decided you want to give the battle arena a shot, be sure to check out our Arena Battle Guide too! Have fun building your own Jurassic World Theme Park and discovering all of the many dinosaurs there are to discover!

Jurassic World Game Cheats, Tips & Review

If you were a previous fan of the Jurassic Park Builder game, or if you have a passion for living in a world of past fantasy, then Jurassic World is the perfect game for you. The game is available on a range of Android phones and tablets, as well as Apple’s iOS operating system. Jurassic World is bought to you by the creators of the previous game in the series – Jurassic Park Builder – and is quite simply a work of art. Ludia Inc. has teamed up with the creators of the Jurassic World film and are ready to present you with a fantastic game which can be enjoyed by children, adults and the elderly alike.


Once you download the app to your phone or tablet, there is a loading screen, which is followed by a legal notice – the user must accept to continue with the game. Shortly after this, the user is presented with a short and fascinating cut-scene to prepare them for the journey ahead of them. The game begins straight away with a battle – the user plays as a dinosaur that must compete against another dinosaur. Although this may seem a bit too sudden, there is a guide who is able to tour the user through the battle and teach them how to fight effectively.

The aim of the game is to run and own a dinosaur park, and slowly evolve and train your dinosaurs into stronger and more powerful through the use of special power-ups as well as food. Through winning battles, you are also able to unlock new dinosaurs, which vary in rareness. It’s fairly quick to unlock your first dinosaur, however, as the game progresses, the difficulty of battles also increases – this makes unlocking new dinosaurs more challenging for the user. As well as unlocking dinosaurs, it’s also possible to upgrade buildings, battle with other users from around the world, and even scan physical Hasbro toys to battle against them in game.


The app follows a lot of the same characteristics as the movie does, with hatching eggs in a hatchery and evolving your dinosaurs with the help of a specialist doctor.

Jurassic World Cheats & Tips

Because of the nature of the games, with constant battles, there are a few cheats and tips, which the user is able to use tactically in the game.

Within a battle, if the opponent begins to get too strong, it could be suitable to switch out your current dinosaur for a different one. It will cost a battle point, which may make users reluctant to actually do it, but it acts as a good cheat if your current dinosaur is causing you problems, and you desperately need to win the battle.


Although not necessarily a cheat, more so an incentive to play, users are able to log in ever five hours to unlock a free mystery card pack. These contain dinosaurs as well as food and money.

Also less of a cheat, and more so a tip/trick, users should complete all of their building tasks as soon as they possibly can. It’s advisable for users to spend their currency to complete these building tasks, as it will increase their money generation in the long run.
There are no possible ways of manipulating the game to cheat, in ways such as increasing currency through editing files.

Jurassic World Game Review

I have to admit, the graphics on the app are truly amazing – it’s quite simply a work of art. However, the user interface on the other hand is another story. There’s helpful information from some of the in game characters, but oh boy – the buttons are far to jumbled on a small screen, they’re far to big and easy to press on when you’re trying to do something else. I find myself pressing the wrong button in battles because it’s just too cramped together. I can hardly see the beautiful graphics because of the ginormous buttons. However, it is forgivable – I think the gameplay makes up for it.


The gameplay is a truly immersive experience. I felt as if I was actually part of the game, not just a person tapping on a screen. Jurassic World does a great job of keeping the user up to date with what is going on, and what they should do next to continue in the game. It seems like it’s almost impossible to put down after you find yourself a few hours into the game, even though there isn’t really much to do – and the game does get a little repetitive after time.

It’s such a shame what the developers have done, in a way to force users to spend real life currency into buying virtual, in game currency. There are timers on many interfaces, and there is always an option to speed it up using the in game currency. That’s not the problem though – the developers have put big arrows facing towards the speed up button, so it just seems natural to quickly press it and spend your currency within seconds. Then, to continue speeding things up, you’re going to need more in game currency which will cost you out of your bank account. It’s understandable for a developer to add in app purchases, but to almost force users into spending what they paid for within seconds seems a little unfair, in my opinion.


I feel as if the game can be enjoyed by a number of different age ranges – as long as they have the basic knowledge of how smartphones work. If an elderly person already uses a smartphone on the daily, I don’t see why they wouldn’t get along with this app (besides the user interface).

It’s nice to see a fresh screen with no third-party advertisements, which would absolutely ruin a lovely game. Most free apps go down the route of advertisements, and it’s fantastic to see that the developers of Jurassic World haven’t taken this route.



Artwork: I give Jurassic World a solid 10/10 for their artwork. Everything is beautiful, and looks fairly realistic. It suits everyone, and I’m glad to see it wasn’t overly childish. The artwork is one of the main aspects of the game that makes me want to continually play the game.

Music & SFX: I’d only give Jurassic world a 4/10 for their music and sound effects. There is basically no music throughout the game – just sound effects. Although these sound effects do sound great, they are repeated over and over and it makes me just want to unplug my headphones and play some of my own music instead.

Story & Originality: I give Jurassic World an 8/10 for their story and originality. The reason for this; it’s never actually been done quite like this before. Despite the (possibly) hundreds of dinosaur related games, there isn’t anything like Jurassic World – which gives you a story right before your eyes. The reason I don’t give the full ten, is because it seems like you have to have seen one of the movies before (Jurassic World or Jurassic Park), because I feel I’d have no knowledge at all if I hadn’t have watched these. It just needs a tiny bit more explaining.

Addictiveness: I give Jurassic World a 7/10 for the addictiveness. The art-style, the storyline, and the gameplay – it all makes me want to play more and more. I just can’t give it the full ten because those sound effects are so repetitive that it makes me not want to play. It’s something that needs to be changed to make this game truly addictive – because if I have sound it is aggravating, and if I mute it then the game feels like there’s something missing from it. Apart from that, almost every aspect of the game wants me to play for hours on end.

Overall, I give Jurassic World a 7/10.
