  • Summary: Dino Master: Dig Discover Duel thrusts you into the role of Dave the Digger on his hunt for the biggest and best dinosaur fossils around the globe. Capturing these fossils won't be easy - avoid the giant insects and other nasties, before they surround your dig site. Once you've excavated your finds, bring them back to the laboratory to rebuild them. After they've been rebuilt, you'll pit dino against dino in Battle Mode. Expand

  1. Though you can unearth 100 true-to-life dinosaurs in 35 fossil fields, the lack of a campaign mode or fighting-tournament structure makes prospects for long-term play grim. [July 2006, p.95]

    A classic arcade game is absolutely destroyed by horrendously clunky and totally unnecessary touch screen controls, and no amount of Pokemon-style collection can save it.
  3. They had a good idea with Dino Master. Unfortunately, the development team didn't manage to bring that idea to life in a fun manner, or even a playable one.
  4. Ugly and stupid. [Mar 2007, p.80]

    Dino Master does have some innovation in its game ideas, but they're executed horribly in terms of the terrible presentation and even worse gameplay. It just never structures like it should, and that leaves this smelling like a big bad pile of dino doo-doo.

    This game was NOT meant to be played with a touch screen and that's a fact that becomes painfully obvious once you've tried it.
