Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter is a hunting game, which lets players explore huge non-linear locations as they attempt to track down a variety of dinosaurs that are armed with advanced AI: these are dangerous creatures that are able to see, hear and sense the hunter.

Game feature 15 different dinosaurs across 5 distinct environments including pine forests, muddy marshes and rolling hills. How you approach your target is important: wind direction, scent and the use of a special dinosaur call are all strategically important elements in tracking your prey.
