Three words. Hunting Friggin Dinosaurs! For the iPad. Very well done game for the iPad and iPhone that takes advantage of the touch screen. Here’s the game trailer:
I’ve been wasting my time with this for a week and have a hard time putting it down. It takes a little bit to get the touch pad sensitivity right where you want it, but they provide a “Survival Mode” where they just keep throwing waves of dinosaurs at you until one of them stomps or eats your twitching almost, but not quite dead corpse. The point of the game is to hunt dinosaurs, and build up an impressive trophy room. You can remove specimens and go try to hunt for better ones if you want. You can wound a dinosaur, in which case you have to follow its blood trail. This is not advisable if you’re hunting carnivores: you have to get more creative in your technique to land those, especially the Tyrannosaurus, which will just take round after round unless you shoot it in the right place. It takes more than one shot to bring one down. Obviously it’s not meant to be a completely realistic hunting simulation, but it’s good enough to be thoroughly addicting. Plus, who doesn’t like the idea of hunting dinosaurs?
