Adventure 1995 Windows Dosbox Turner Interactive Third Person

Dinos are your friends

Originally, Dinotopia is an utopian world made by author James Gurney where humans and Dinosaurs have learned to live in peace and harmony ((completely opposite than that of Jurassic Park, where dinos are here to eat you). It is a setting for more than 20 books, mini series and, lastly, video games. There are 5 games up to date, and this is the first. Dinotopia starts off with a tale of a brother and sister, both washed on this island that is inhabited by dinosaurs. You play the brother, Nathan drake, who has lost his sister in the commotion and you have to find her.The gameplay is you clicking where the character should go and clicking on objects to interact with them. The graphics are relatively good, but the downside is that it it too slow. It takes ages for the character to get from point A to point B and the cursor is also just too slow. There is no music for the most part, just sounds of the surroundings and a sound here and there when interacting with objects. All in all, while perfectly alright for a 1995 game, I don't think this is a decent implementation of the awesome utopian world and its plot. Maybe the sequels (there are 6) are better.
