Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter title art

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a port of Carnivores 2 developed by Tatem Games for iOS and Android devices[1][2] and by Beatshapers for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3.

It follows the same storyline as the original games, where the hunter picks a weapon, location, and dinosaur to hunt. It has fared very well with reviewers, receiving very high scores. Originally almost the same as Carnivores 2, Dinosaur Hunter now features a lot of new content not found in the original PC game.

On January 24, 2017, the game was put on Steam Greenlight, and the community successfully greenlit it on February 15, 2017. It has yet to be released and has had no updates on the greenlight page since then.

Gameplay Edit

Essentially the same as Carnivores 2, Dinosaur Hunter allows the hunter to pick their location, weapon(s) and dinosaur(s) to hunt. Several things have been touched up, such as the dinosaur skins and maps. There are new dinosaurs and maps as well. There are also some new features to allow for more interesting gameplay.

Additions Edit

There have been many new additions to the game over the years, and more are coming soon.

At launch, the Survive Mode was introduced, where the player must fend off waves of charging dinosaurs. For an unknown reason this mode was not added to Carnivores: Ice Age (Mobile). The PSP and PS3 versions also the exclusive Laser Rifle as a weapon. The Double Ammo equipment from Carnivores 2 was removed in the mobile port. The reason being is that amount of ammo the weapons have in the port are the same as the double ammo gave.

Blood trails were added on July 23, 2010. The player's jump height was also made higher.

On November 4, 2010, the Pachycephalosaurus from Carnivores was added to the dinosaur roster, and Ravaren's Bridge from Carnivores Ice Age was added as a map, although the steps that allow the hunter to get on the bridge have been removed. This was presumably done because in Carnivores Ice Age, none of the animals could reach the hunter while on the bridge, which some fans would see as cheating. Some other new features include the Supply Ship from Carnivores Ice Age, the ability to relocate to a new location in the same hunt, and the Wind Indicator has been placed inside the compass, allowing for more room.

A new update for the game was released on June 20, 2012. In this update, the Photo Camera, support for more languages (including Spanish and German), and four new dinosaurs, Amargasaurus, Oviraptor, Utahraptor, and Troodon, were added.

Carnotaurus and Gigantoraptor were added on April 4, 2013 for iOS. In the same update, a new map was added; the Nibelungen Paradise.

On Febuary 26, 2014, two other new dinosaurs, Iguanodon and Coelophysis, were announced. The Coelophysis was added on April 18, 2014 and Iguanodon was added as a secret dinosaur in said update. It was added to the hunt screen as a selectable dinosaur on August 11, 2014.[3][4][5][6]

On December 6, 2014, a new small update was released, which added a Revive feature. If the player dies at any point they can watch an ad to continue the hunt and keep the points they earned during that hunt. It can be hard to find an ad to watch, however.

On October 21st, 2016, a new update was released for iOS devices. The UI, reload animations, and the graphics were improved, the player's movement speed was increased, a new weapon was released, the Revolver, a new nighttime mode and trophy room was added, and various bugs were fixed. This update had already been released back in September for Android players. The same update was added to the Ice Age port on January 11th, 2017.

Android version Edit

On June 11, 2012, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter made its debut for Android platforms, free to play. Purchasing two additional hunting bundles was necessary to gain access to all of the creatures, weapons, and locations. On the hunt menu, the dinosaur icons use the colors of the iOS version dinosaurs, but in-game the dinosaurs used their original PC colors until recent updates.

The Android version allows the player to buy more packs from the Supply Ship. Android players are able to resupply as many times as they want during a hunt until they run out of packs. The Tyrannosaurus can be killed on the Android version without shooting its eye by doing this, as the Tyrannosaurus does have a limited amount of health. However, its health was too high as by the time players' ammo ran out it as it would still have some health remaining in the iOS version, Carnivores, and Carnivores 2.

Android players can also spend real money to buy points to use in-game.

Android players have also received some updates and features before the iOS version. The Nibelungen Paradise area was added to the Android version about 2 months before iOS users could access it. The Carnotaurus and the Gigantoraptor was also added a month before iOS users. Also, the 1.7.0 update was released around a month earlier than iOS users.

In the February 21st, 2013 update, purchasable Hunting Bundles were removed.
