We have a curious hero who is looking for fossils of dinosaurs that lived millions of years ago. You must dig up the bones of these mysterious adventure dinosaurs. By bringing together the pieces of bone you find, you can see how they look when they are alive. Have fun.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I assume this game is meant for kids, and that's saving this game from bunch of harsh judgement, since the potential player is not very demanding.

The music doesn't loop. It get s silent after a while, and if you want it again, you have to press the music button twice. It's a minus. The digging mechanic is pretty much a time waster. The only reason for this to be in a game I can find is that it's supposed to teach kids, that digging does require some time and effort. Firsly I wasn't sure where you're supposed to click and tried clicking gems and stuff, but later I noticed that it doesn't matter. The 'tutorial' which is a link to a youtube video (which is a disguisting move in itself) didn't really explain to me how to play, it just showed me gameplay. The 3 star rating below is completely senseless. You get a star each time you uncover some bone pieces, and those usually are in more than 3 groups, so you keep looking for bones even after achieving 3 star rating that doesn't really mean anything. If it's tied to time then it's also bugged, since my first excavation was quite long.

The assembling bones part is the coolest thing in the game and it makes the game. I actually enjoyed it even though it wasn't even remotely exciting. It just looked nice, there wasn't anything bad about it, if you ignore the visible gray seams between bone puzzles you assemble. The game has absolutely no ending which is pretty dissappointing. Not even a small panel congratulating you on finishing the whole game. You should reward the player at the end.

Music choice is decent, children should be familiar with melodies like Hanabera.
