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. Although basically the same as Carnivores 2, Dinosaur Hunter does feature content not found in the original PC game.
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 also some new features to allow for more interesting gameplay.

There are some new additions to the game. In later versions, 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, and the ability to relocate to a new location in the same hunt. Also, the Wind Indicator has been placed inside the compass, allowing for more room.
A new update for the game (featuring four new dinosaurs) came out 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 and on Febuary 26, 2014, it was announced the two other new dinosaurs, Iguanodon and Coelophysis. The Coelophysis was added on April 18, 2014 and Iguanodon was added as a secret dinosaur and huntable on August 11, 2014.
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. Latest updates have removed the need for bundles, integrating all animals within the initial download and adding more dinosaurs to the list.
