Review Jurassic World™: The Game

Jurassic World for Android is a map based dinosaur evolution simulator. I'd like to say that this is one of those games you can leave running in the background while you're trying to do something else. In truth, it totally mesmerised and distracted me from what I was supposed to be doing.
So you start off by choosing some randomised abilities for your species to move, evolve, adapt etc. Then you place your new species somewhere on a map of the world where all the continents fused together. Slowly geological time moves on, the continents start drifting apart from each other, and your egg hatches out.
You rack up "DNA points" by tapping on food icons that appear on the map, before they disappear. Then you go into the evolution menu and evolve different features of your species. Want something that can fly and migrate? Evolve the forelimb strength, and follow it through with webbed feet and wings. Want something that can swim?
Go for those webbed feet, but also improve breathing and get gills, and maybe other features like fins. Want a more ferocious bite? Start by strengthening the skull. The options are cool and fascinating; though I sense that it might not really matter what you choose in terms of your survival prospects; as long as you keep busy evolving your species. At the end of a round, your species "evolves into" another one, depending on what sort of features you focused on.
Of course, the game is riddled with all kinds of misconceptions and potentially misleading ideas. But I don't think anyone's going to look at this and go "hmmm... so the Spinosaurus evolved into Ankylosaurus?" It's not meant to be taken literally in that way. There's always going to be a balance between accuracy and fun, and for my money, the game does a really good job of balancing some really interesting aspects of evolution with a game mechanic that sucks you right in.
There's a constant stream of news events, many of them silly. But of course there are mass extinctions to survive through - and you better have a lot of dinosaurs on the map when that meteorite crashes.
