Second Dino App in Trilogy
This is the second app in the Ansel & Clair
dinosaur trilogy from Fingerprint. It follows the format started in the first app in the series: Ansel and Clair: Cretaceous Dinosaurs
. In both apps, players join Ansel, an adorable alien photographer from the planet of Virtoos, and his side-kick robot Clair to travel back in time to when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
Before going back in time, Ansel and Clair meet Dr. Lindy Bones, a renowned paleontologist, at a fossil dig site. They dig up a fossil of a dinosaur from the Jurassic period, and then use Ansel & Clair's ship to scan that fossil and travel back in time to when it lived.
How to Play
Upon arriving in the Jurassic time period, kids see a stunning panorama of seven animated dinosaurs. The ever-curious Ansel walks among and interacts with these giant creatures, while encyclopedic Clair answers all of Ansel's questions. Kids can use a virtual camera to take pictures of an Allosaurus, an Apatosaurus, an Archaelpteryx, a Hybodus, a Brachiosaurus, a Plesiosaurus, and a Segosaurus. If they explore all of Clair's offered information, they earn stickers of the dinosaurs for their in-app travelogue.
What Makes This App Good?
With cute Ansel in the lead, kids experience playful learning as the little alien does things like slide down the neck of a Brachiosaurus. The app even has an area where kids can design their own dinosaur by mixing and matching different body parts.
If you have a dino-loving kid, Ansel & Clair: Jurassic Dinosaurs masterfully blends adventure with learning.
