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 Jurassic dinosaurs roamed the earth.
The Bottom Line
Masterful blend of adventure with learning as kids travel back in time to interact with the Jurassic period dinosaurs.

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.

The Setup

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.
