Developed by Wildsphere Studios, “Gigantosaurus: The Game” is an all new ROARsome adventure based on the world of the hugely popular CGI animated show “Gigantosaurus”. The series is currently airing its 1st season on Disney Junior worldwide. Season 2 and 3 have already been commissioned by The Walt Disney Company, France Télévisions and Super RTL. This show is really cute and easily entertains my seven year old daughter. It is one her favorite shows on Disney Junior.
“Gigantosaurus: The Game” allows families to join in the fun together, side by side, with 1-4 player action across prehistoric, vibrant worlds, epic racing levels, puzzles and challenges. You can explore and race across the vast, prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus in a one-of-a-kind dinosaur adventure. You are able to play as your favorite dinosaurs from the show –Rocky, Tiny, Mazu, and Bill on a daring quest to help Giganto and escape extinction. as they discover secrets, solve puzzles and save the day.
If you get tired of just exploring the world there is also “Dino Racing” where you can hop in your race kart for a super rally to reach the next adventure zone and find out who’s the fastest dinosaur. There is also a fun team up where you and up to 3 friends can control your favorite dino and create co-operative adventures together.
I found this game to extremely fun and very easy to use for the youngest kids to their adults, where it is fun for the whole family. The graphics are solid and the game play is very intuitive. I had a slight issue with the camera angles where I would have liked to use the second joystick to control the camera but it is not allowed. The cut scenes are cute as well and kids will love them since they get to have a mini-adventure with their favorite characters and their voices as well.
The Dino Racing mode is also very fun and reminds me of a kids version of Mario Kart. I can see my family playing this game for months to come as their is tons of content to explore throughout the world. There are also fun side missions in the main game where you have to collect seeds to plant trees, which is easily navigated by the helpful on-screen hints provided by the game, so there is no way to get lost in the big world.
Official Premise: Explore and race across the prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus. This Disney dino tale is part saving the world, part super race, and all giant fun! Rocky, Tiny, Mazuand Bill have scary problems –like the meteor that’s blocked up Giganto’s volcano! Only you and your dino friends can dare to solve puzzles and save the day –but you might need Giganto’s powers too! And the end of each story is the start of a super rally to the next zone. Will you be the most roarsome adventurer or the fastest racer?
