How to play
As a world-renowned paleontologist, you were invited to a special preview of
Jurassic Park. But your dream of a lifetime became a nightmare when a system
failure released the dinosaurs from their carefully-constructed pens. Now they
have overrun the island, and only three human survivors are left: yourself and
two children, nine-year-old Tim Murphy and his twelve-year-old sister, Alexis.
Your task, Dr. Grant, is to rescue Tim and Lex and escape from the island,
using any means necessary to avoid being eaten.
You will encounter many hazards along the way. These include:
A stampeding herd of Triceratops.
Groups of small, yet deadly, Compsognathus.
Your chief adversary, the vicious Velociraptor.
The poison-spitting Dilophosaurus.
The dolphin-like Ichthyosaur.
Stegosaurus, Euoplocephalus, and Dimetrodon.
The gigantic Brachiosaurus.
The unspeakable ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex.
In the two-player game, both players work together toward the goal of escaping
the island. When one player loses a life, control passes to the other player.
You begin the game with 3 lives. After losing those, you can continue the
game 4 times, each time with 3 lives.
Note: You can increase your number of lives and continues by collecting the
correct Mystery Boxes (see below).
When you've lost all your lives, the Continue Screen is displayed with a
countdown. If you press any button before the countdown ends, you will start
at the beginning of the last level. Otherwise, the game ends.
If you have used up all your continues, the Continue Screen will appear with
a zero countdown and the game will end.

All over the island, you will find bonuses hidden in the trees and
The dinosaurs have begun to breed, so to complete each level, you must collect
or destroy any eggs you find. You will receive points by collecting them.
After you have collected all the eggs, you may receive a pass card. These
allow you to enter the various buildings you will encounter as you make your
way around the island.
If you have the correct pass card for a certain building, you will
automatically enter or leave the building when you walk up to a door.
You can also use your pass cards to access the main computer on computer
consoles or motion detectors scattered around the island. This allows you to
open gates. It can also provide you with hints and tips on how to proceed. You
will automatically access the computer by walking up to it.
Objects to pick up
When you pick up a Gun Magazine, that weapon automatically becomes active.
There are four types:
Multi-Shot (yellow) - your basic low-power weapon.
Explosive Multi-Shot (green) - Medium-power; one shot is usually enough.
Armor-Piercing Multi-Shot (blue) - This high-power ammo goes through almost
3-Ball Bolas (red) - Each ball is medium-power; useful in small places
Use these to blow up the Raptor nests.
These can be good or bad - you just need to learn which is which! They

Lose a Life Invulnerability
Extra Life Power Down
When some dinosaurs are destroyed, a bouncing Ammo Ball appears. Collect these
to increase the number of basic weapon bullets.
There are too many to list them all, but they include:
Rocks - These block your movement.
Trees/Bushes - Raptors and other carnivores can hide behind these and jump out
Volcanic Craters - These spew out rocks which you must avoid.
Electrified Gates - Found on the roofs of buildings and on the ground. Touch
them and you're fried!
Nodes - Sparks arc between them.
River - Use the inflatable raft.
Fences - Use them to corral the carnivores.
Level 1: Triceratops stampete
Tim is somewhere beyond the Jurassic Park gates, right in the path of a
stampede of huge Triceratops! You must first open the gates using the central
computer; then, after reaching Tim, guide him through the stampede.
Touch Tim and he will follow you. If a Triceratops runs over either you or
Tim, power will be lost.
Note: You cannot fire on the stampede.
Level 2: T-rex confrontation
Lex has been cornered by the Tyrannosaurus!
To reach her, you must go through the deadly Raptor Pen and travel up the
river on an inflatable raft.
Inflatable Raft Controls: Press the A button for an oar stroke. Press the
Control Pad left and right to turn the raft.
Once you reach Lex, you must protect her by guiding her to a safe location
while firing on the T-rex. (The dinosaur's power is shown by a meter at the
bottom right of the screen.) If either of you get stepped on, power will be
lost. If the T-rex gets one of you, a life will be lost. If you run out of
ammunition, a gun magazine will appear for you to pick up.
Level 3: Restore computer power
The power to the main computer is out. You must restore the power, then boot
up the main computer consoles in the correct order.
Beware the Stegosaurus and Dimetrodon - especially the Stegosaurus, he's
armored and dangerous!
Level 4: The raptor nests
The Raptos have begin to breed in the volcanic caves. You must find some
explosives and destroy their nests. The explosives have a time fust, so be
sure you're not in the nest when it explodes!
Look out for the rocks which are thrown from the volcanic vents.
Level 5: Radio the mainland
The radio in the control room has been destroyed by the raptors. Your only
chance to get help from the mainland is to use the radio on board the ship in
the harbor. To accomplish this, you'll have to get past more stampedes, the
dock, and the hazardous Engine Rooms.
Level 6: Escape the island
The helicopter is on its way. Now all you have to do is get to the helipad to
be picked up and flown to safety. So near and yet so far! Will you make it?
(Hint: Give up now!)
Hints and tips
- When battling the T-rex, learn its movements and move Lex accordingly.
- When guiding Tim through the stampede, keep high on the screen at some
points so you can run across and down with the Triceratops.
- In the Raptor nests, X marks the spot.
- You can only drop the time bomb in the Raptor's nest when you have collected
all the eggs.
- The Raptors slow down when cornering.
- Raptors cannot get through doors.
- When chased by the dinosaurs, use the rocks, trees, etc. to slow them down.
- The T-rex can only be hit on the head when attacking.
- Collect all the eggs on the raft section for 2 bonus lives.
- Learn the timing ot the arcing sparks.
- There is a cheat mode... if you can find it.
Nearly the size of an elephant, the Triceratops is built low to the ground
with huge stumpy legs and a massive head with three horns, the longest
protruding from the middle of its face. Despite a fearsome appearance, they're
really quite docile.
"T-rex", the most famous predator in the history of the world, is the classic
blood-thirsty carnivore. Standing eighteen feet tall with a heat five feet
long, T-res has huge and powerful jaws which can swallow a man whole, They are
literally capable of eating over a ton of food in one sitting.
This enormous animal stands over fifty feet high. Weighing in at thirty tons,
one animal weighs as much as a whole herd of modern elephants. A friendly
unassuming animal with a tiny head and an equally tiny brain, it seems to
always have its head in the clouds, or at least the trees, chomping on
luscious leaves of the rain forest.
