To commemorate the launch of Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter and for a limited time only, Tatem Games is giving away their other iPhone titles for free. Here is more info on the new Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter iPhone game:
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a realistic 3D console-quality hunting game with a variety of great modes and features, as well as tremendous social networking components.
Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter lets players explore huge non-linear locations as they attempt to track down a variety of dinosaurs that are armed with some of the most advanced AI on the platform. As a result, these are no ?pea-brained? dinosaurs ? these are dangerous creatures that are able to see, hear and sense the hunter. If you?re not careful, it?s very easy for the hunter to become the hunted.
The game features two exciting game modes:
Hunting: a non-linear hunting experience where players roam through vast landscapes, tracking and hunting a variety of dinosaurs. For those who want to get up close and personal, the Tranquilizer option lets you temporarily incapacitate a dinosaur so you can check it out up close.
Survival: a timed, frenzied affair where dinosaurs begin rushing the player in an attempt to eat him. The pace starts slowly and builds, and the person who can stay alive the longest is the winner.
With 15 different dinosaurs across 5 distinct environments including pine forests, muddy marshes and rolling hills, how you approach your target is important. Wind direction, scent and the use of a special dinosaur call are all key elements in tracking your prey.
Choose from among six different weapon types ? from a sniper rifle to an X-bow ? as you utilize the map and radar feature to locate and track the dinosaur you are hunting. A word to the wise, only the dinosaurs you are hunting will appear on the radar, while the rest are masked - but that doesn?t make them any less deadly.
Tying the community together is an integrated social networking platform powered by Plus+ from ngmoco that includes online leader boards and the ability to post your scores and videos on your Facebook page, letting players link up with fellow hunters and friends.
