Fed up with hunting adorable Pokémon? Then you might want to try hunting something a little larger, and a lot more deadly in Jurassic World Alive. Developer Ludia’s take on Pokémon Go‘s AR mobile game formula is available now via the Google Play Store.
Here’s the blurb straight from the Play Store listing: “As a brand-new member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG), your mission is to save dinosaurs from a second extinction. Explore your surrounding area to find your favorite dinosaurs – including new breeds that are more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.”
The setup should be very familiar to the millions of current and lapsed Pokémon Go players, with Alive tasking you with exploring real-world locations, collecting creatures (in this case 100 different dinosaurs), and doing battle in PvP arenas. Alive’s unique feature is the ability to combine genetic traits of different prehistoric beasties to develop specific stats.
Jurassic World Alive is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases, but the early user reviews suggest it isn’t too aggressive with its monetization strategies. It’s also worth noting that only Galaxy S8 and above or Google Pixel users will have access to the AR features as the game utilizes Google’s ARCore platform.
