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.


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.


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 non-therapsid synapsids.
  • Herbivores are strong against Pterosaurs, but weak to Carnivores. With the exception of ornithomimids and therizinosaurs, 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 stem-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, sea turtles and placodonts, 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 metriorhynchids.

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 proboscideans, 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.

Upcoming Animals[]


  • The roar of Therizinosaurus and other animals of its animation is partially copied from the sound of the ghosts that attacked the main character in the end of White Noise movie distributed by Universal Pictures in 2005.
  • Smilodon, Phorusrhacos, Sarcosuchus, Leedsichthys, and some other animals look very similar to their versions in the Walking with... series.
  • Despite the Death dodo being a Cenozoic based creature (as it is in Jurassic Park Builder), it is categorized as a herbivore.


  • Most of the animals in the amphibian class aren't true amphibians, but rather crocodiles or synapsids.
  • Antarctopelta is innacurately depicted with a club when it is now believed to be a relative of Stegouros.
  • Dracorex and Stygimoloch may now be synonym with Pachycephalosaurus, but this is still debated.
  • Due to reusing the Dimetrodon animations, the Edaphosaurus is portrayed as a carnivore despite its dentition saying otherwise.
  • Metriorhynchus was depicted with legs and scutes though it was fully aquatic and lacked scutes in real life.
  • Because there are no omnivores in the game, Oviraptor is portrayed as a flesh-eating carnivore as shown in its animation when it pounces on a goat.
  • Tapejara design's is based on its cousin Tupandactylus.
  • Andrewsarchus has an outdated mesonychid design while in reality, it had a more ungulate-like appearance.
  • Indricotherium is now a synonym of Paraceratherium.
  • Diprotodon is portrayed as a carnivore due to te fact that it is using the Arctodus animation.
  • Gastornis is portrayed as a carnivore due to using the Kelenken animation but recent studies show that it was a herbivore.
  • Carbonemys is innacurately portrayed as a Galapagos tortoise-like animal despite it being a semi-aquatic side-necked turtle.
