Jurassic World: The Game is a simulation video game developed by Ludia and based on the 2015 film Jurassic World. It is a sequel to Ludia's earlier game, Jurassic Park: Builder (2012), and features similar gameplay.

Gameplay

During the game, the player must build Jurassic World by adding dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals which can be obtained via special card packs or by buying them. In order to buy a dinosaur, however, the player must unlock it by completing a challenge in the Arena, an Earth Shattering unlock event or a Shake the Earth Tournament. There are also many missions given by the main characters which can grant the player resources such as dinobucks, coins, food, DNA, S(super)-DNA and Loyalty Points.

Arena

Players can create a team of up to three prehistoric creatures and fight against other creatures. A player can choose to either attack, defend or reserve a move during any one turn and any reserved moves are added to the next turn, for a maximum of eight moves in a turn. The more attacks that are performed in one turn, the greater the damage caused. In addition, the creatures are divided into different "types", each with a strength and weakness to another.

Land Types

  • Carnivores are strong against Herbivores, but weak to Amphibians. They are represented almost entirely by theropod dinosaurs, as well as some synapsids.
  • Herbivores are strong against Pterosaurs, but weak to Carnivores. With the exception of ornithomimids and therizinosaurids, they are represented entirely by non-theropod dinosaurs.
  • Pterosaurs are strong against Amphibians, but weak to Herbivores. As the name suggests, they are represented by several species of large pterosaurs, along with some smaller ones.
  • Amphibians are strong against Carnivores, but weak to Pterosaurs. Despite the name, various archosaurs, crocodylomorphs and primitive tetrapods are also featured in this group.

Aquatic Types

  • Surface are strong against Caves, but weak against Reef. This was the first type revealed, as the Mosasaurus was released prior to the Aquatic Park update. It is represented by mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, and shark-like fish.
  • Reef are strong against Surface, but weak against Caves. Represented by pliosaurs, leptocliedids and turtle-like reptiles, it is currently the only type represented entirely by marine reptiles.
  • Caves are strong against Reef, but weak against Surface. This type is mainly represented by non-tetrapods such as non-cartilaginous fish and cephalopods, but also features crocodile-like reptiles.

Cenozoic Types

  • Snow are strong against Savannah, but weak against Cavern. This was the first type revealed, as the Woolly Mammoth was released prior to the Cenozoic Park update. It is represented by elephants, deer-like mammals, cat-like mammals, and bear-like mammals.
  • Savannah are strong against Cavern, but weak against Snow. It is represented by flightless birds, rhinoceros-like mammals, kangaroos, indricotheres, and entelodonts.
  • Cavern are strong against Snow, but weak against Savannah. It is represented by dog-like mammals, giant ground sloths, large snakes, and glyptodonts.
