|Play the game:|
Players play as Sam, an Explorer, who tries to capture dinosaurs that he accidentally let out from a portal. Five levels are available to play: Base, Swamp, Jungle, Underground/Waterfall, and a volcano. In each level, the player can find a number of scrolls. The player can earn small pictures that you can print from these scrolls.
Scorpions and Spiders are the main enemies, even though no fighting is done in the game. If an enemy is touched, a purple heart will be lost. Throughout the game, in addition to avoiding obstacles and navigating through the platforms, the player will also have to collect yellow bricks which, after collecting three, will allow him to build simple objects (such as bridges) necessary in order to continue at indicated locations. At the end of each level, there is a cut-scene where Sam hops into a vehicle and herds dinosaurs into a cage (or, in the case of the epilogue, the portal they had emerged from previously). All of the Dino dinosaurs are in the game.
- Sam appears exclusively in this game.
- Strangely, even though the Explorer has a gun, he only uses it as a melee weapon to smash down walls.
- In the first part of the Underground/Waterfall level, it is possible to jump through a wall and end up in an inescapable cavern under the game. The player cannot properly manipulate or see Sam in the cavern. The only way to get out is to play another level.
