Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter title art

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a port of Carnivores 2 developed by Tatem Games for the iOS and Android[1][2] and by Beatshapers for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3. Development on the port was started in July 2009[3] and the game was released on June 12, 2010.

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.

On January 24, 2017, the game was put up on Steam Greenlight, and the community successfully greenlit it on February 15, 2017.

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 also some new features to allow for more interesting gameplay.

Allosaurus
Carnivores 2 DINO4.TGA
30 Average Excellent Excellent 20 Extremely dangerous!

From the Dinopedia: This is a good carnivore for the beginning hunter to try, but beware, it will attack you at close range.

40 Excellent Average Average 16 Dangerous if disturbed.

From the Dinopedia: Light-weight and slim runner that eats smaller mammals. A dinosaur of light body composition. His bones are hollow and his body is slim which makes Coelophysis a good runner. Because they are tinier than other predators, Coelophyses are believed to live and hunt in packs. Their food is either lizards or their own little kids!

Carnivores 2 DINO5.TGA
50 Average Poor Average 18 Dangerous if wounded.

Troodon
Troodon
100 Average Excellent Average 25 Extremely dangerous!

Thanks to a big fore-facing eyes Troodon can spot a hunter or a prey from a big distance or in the night. Stiff but long tail and strong legs make it fast, long neck and serrated teeth mean it can hunt down and dine with anything that fits its size. A scary creature, thank heavens it's not giant.
Spinosaurus
Carnivores 2 DINO7.TGA
250 Average Excellent Average 30 Extremely dangerous!

From the Dinopedia: Spinosaurus is called the "Spiny Lizard" because it has a series of large neural spines up to 6 feet (1.8m) long coming out if its back vertebrae. Take the speed of the Velociraptor, and combine it with the perseverance of Allosaurus, and you get the Spinosaurus.
Utahraptor
Utahraptor2
250 Excellent Excellent Excellent 30 Extremely dangerous!

From the Dinopedia: Ferocious meat-eater on two legs, often compared to saber-tooth cats because of the manner of killing. Best known for its scary sickle-shaped claw on the inner toe with which it attacked and killed prey much larger than itself.

Carnotaurus
Carno-0
350 Average Poor Excellent 35 Extremely dangerous!

From the Dinopedia: Large predator with hands smaller than even those of the Tyrannosaurus. Distinctive features of Carnotaurus are its triangular horns above eyes and a short snout. Horns are the reason for its name translated from Latin as "Meat-Eating Bull." Its long strong tail with muscles on both sides is the reason why Carntosaurus is extremely fast when moving foward, but are not able to turn around quickly.
Gigantoraptor
Gigant
450 Average Excellent Average 45 Extremely dangerous!

From the Dinopedia: Most are likely to be an omnivore with a toothless beak but also with strong long legs and clingy claws. As the name suggests, the size of this size of this halk-dinosaur half-bird is pretty impressive: skull alone is up to a meter long. Reminds of a huge chicken: has feathers but can't fly. Speed of growth is pretty impressive too: they add 140 kgs each year, so better hunt it when it's young.
T-Rex
Carnivores 2 DINO9.TGA
500 Excellent Excellent Excellent 50 The only way to kill T-Rex is shooting his eye.
Extremely dangerous!


From the Dinopedia: For expert hunters only! Possibly the most feared of all dinosaurs, this dinosaur was two stories tall, with razor sharp teeth in its enormous jaws. It is an extremely aggressive carnivore that will eat anything in its sight. Shooting this dinosaur anywhere but the targeted eye area will only make it more aggressive, so be careful of this dangerous beast. It has very good sight, excellent scent, and very good hearing.

Areas Edit

Name Difficulty Cost Description
Delphaeus Hills
Carnivores 2 AREA1.TGA
Mild 0 The smallest island on the tour. The rolling hills surround an enormous bay. Impassible mountains make deadly traps for the unwary. In the center of the island is a large chasm of unknown origin, and the deserted remains of an archaeology outpost.
Fort Ciskin
Carnivores 2 AREA2.TGA
Mild 50 A good sized area consisting of dense pine forests encircling a murky swamp. In the southwest corner lies an abandoned settlement guarded by a towering "Dinosaur Wall", that now lies in ruins from the fury of a T-Rex.
Vengar Fjords
Carnivores 2 AREA3.TGA
Intermediate 100 Lush pockets of vegetation, and thousands of inlets cover this area. This beautiful but treacherous piece of land includes an ancient volcano. Be careful when wandering the virtual maze of water and mountains created by glaciers millions of years ago.
Ravaren's Bridge
Ravaren's Bridge icon
Mild 150 This series of islands coered with lakes an frigid swamps is connected by an elevated bridge system. Pine trees cover this otherwise barren rea, making good cover for hunter and prey alike.
Manya Jungle
Carnivores 2 AREA4.TGA
Intermediate 200 Ringed with snow-capped mountains, this hunting area is rumored to be a nesting ground for some of the larger dinosaurs. Muddy marshes to the southwest, and a long abandoned "Dinosaur Wall" make this one of the most mysterious areas on the tour.
Mount Ravan
Carnivores 2 AREA5.TGA
Advanced 300 This island, broken by waterways and mountains is the most difficult by far. The frozen peaks of Mt. Ravan overlook a thick tropical forest that may quickly become a deadly maze where hidden danger abounds. Be careful of the active lavaflow to the south as well.
Nibelungen Paradise Advanced 500 An area of contrasts. Look in one direction and see a beautiful sandy bay. Look in another-and see high mountains which form an almost closed circle. Clouds gather in this circle and make visibility poor so use all your senses to track down the animals.

Weapons Edit

Name Cost Description
Pistol
Carnivores 2 WEAPON1.TGA
20 This weapon has fast firing rate, but its accuracy declines with distance. It is very good damage for close combat, but less effective for distant targets. The pistol will scare plant eaters, but the noise will alert dangerous carnivores.
Shotgun
Carnivores 2 WEAPON2.TGA
100 This is a very powerful weapon that uses buck-shot bullets as an ammunition. The grouping of shots decreases on farther distances. Shooting from this weapon requires less precise aiming due to its grouping of shots.
DB Shotgun
Carnivores 2 WEAPON3.TGA
150 This weapon is same as shotgun, but can make two shots almost simultaneously. However, it makes a lot of noise, so it will scare all plant eaters and some small carnivores, causing them to run away.
X-Bow
Carnivores 2 WEAPON4.TGA
50 This weapon has two target areas, called aiming pins. The top pin is sighted in for 40 meters, and the bottom pin is sighted for 80 meters. It is relatively silent, and can be shot several times without alerting dinosaurs.
Rifle
Carnivores 2 WEAPON5.TGA
100 The target area for this weapon is the center of the sighting circle. Although powerful, aim your shot well. The shotgun will scare plant eaters, causing them to scatter, but the noise will alert dangerous carnivores.
Sniper rifle
Carnivores 2 WEAPON6.TGA
200 This weapon is very accurate, and will shoot exactly where the crosshairs are placed. Its range goes as far as the binoculars, but is narrow. This is not a weapon for a charging meat eater, but fantastic for distance shots.

Additions Edit

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.

Another very special addition to the game is the new Survive Mode, where the player must fend off waves of charging dinosaurs. PSP and PS3 versions also feature the exclusive laser rifle as a weapon.

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.[4][5][6][7]

On September of 2016 a new carnivores update came out featuring new graphics and a weapon the Revolver On April of 2018 a new update featuring a new Easter egg on nibelungen paradise coordinates: D7

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.
