This is a page where you will learn the basics of "Dinosaur Simulator." The Mechanics section is dedicated to how the game works and features other than the animals, like eggs or packs. Hopefully, this will help you and act as a guide to help you throughout the game. Remember to help out DS and not destroy it.
When you first play the game, you'll only have the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Ornithomimus, and Triceratops. You can use Tyrannosaurus to get Styracosaurus, Euoplocephalus, and Brachiosaurus through the Survial Badges. The same is for Triceratops and Ornithomimus, in which you get Allosaurus, Baryonyx, Spinosaurus, Avimimus, Troodon, and Gigantoraptor. You can only choose these 3 dinosaurs at the start and by surviving 10 days with each of them or buying dinosaurs with the DNA, you will unlock more dinosaurs to play as. Checking this table will show their stats when they are babies vs when they are elders:
Please, feel free to make any corrections or adjustments to this table to make it clearer to beginners.
Every day, you earn dna and as you save up, you'll be able to buy more dinosaurs and skins. Skins can also be obtained by using promo codes to get free skins. Some skins are different from their original skins/dinosaurs by their stats as well as their looks. For example, a Baryonyx has 1,200 HP and 150 DMG as an elder whereas a Kaiju Baryonyx has 1,320 HP and up to 150 DMG at elder. Please go to this page for more information on dna.
