Synopsis: The game is top-down view in 2D, however, when the player enters a building, it changes to first-person view using 3D technology created by Ocean Software. The game follows the same structure of the film for the most part, but Grant is the hero of the adventure that the player takes control of in the game. After a disastrous tropical storm hits Isla Nublar, the setting of InGen’s dinosaur preserve, the parks security systems fail. Without safety measures of any kind the dinosaurs are now free to roam the park and inflict havoc. As paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant you’ll need to escape the island using only your wit of dinosaurs to evade the pesky and dangerous Velociraptors along with multiple other species of prehistoric terror. You’ll be tasked with a variety of tasks including collecting 18 dinosaur eggs across the island, restoring power to the park, blocking the way from the Raptor Pen to the Visitor’s Center to stop the intruding Velociraptors, wiping out a Raptor nest, and clearing the boat of dinosaurs before you can radio the mainland for a helicopter to come pick you up to escape the island.
