DINOSAURS: Mission Dino Camp from Wild River Games and ActaLogic is a new game based on the schleich toys range. schleich is a German producer of hand-painted figurines. The company was founded back in 1935 and has worked on creating bite-, scratch-, and saliva-resistant toys. It’s now 2023, and we’re getting a Nintendo Switch video game based on their lifelike Dinosaur line of toy designs.

You’ll be part of Team Dino and will need to explore a vast Amazon jungle as you complete a series of dinosaur-related tasks. Oh, and you might run into the temple of an ancient civilization. You know, the usual. Explore by foot or by using a vehicle to collect items and help the dinos that you need to take care of them. Not all dinosaurs will be peaceful, so you might need to use a tranquilizer or a stun gun to get the job done. It’s then that you’ll be able to bring them back to the Team Dino base.

 

When you gain control of paleontologist Jack, you’ll be able to move around with the left analog stick, sprinting by pressing in on the left stick as needed. You can jump with the A button, crouch with the B button, and interact with the X button. The right analog stick can be used to control the camera and look around. The D-Pad can be used to check your tasks, review the mission, check your map, or view the album by pressing up, left, down, or right. When driving a vehicle, you will be able to accelerate with the ZR button and brake with the ZL button.

What exactly will you be doing during your time with DINOSAURS: Mission Dino Camp? Your first task will be to find a dinosaur that seems to be in danger. You’ll have to find the cryolophosaurus, which is hurt and needs your assistance. First up, we will be taking a picture of the dinosaur with your mobile phone. Find the right spot and press the X button to take your phone out and take a photo with the A button. After that, bring the photo to Luis at the lab to see what needs to be done to help the dinosaur.

 

Luis will let you know that the dinosaur probably crashed into something, which is why you should bring it back to the Team Dino base to take care of its wounds. You’ll have to use a tranquilizer on the Cryolophosaurus so that it can be flown into the base. For this, you’ll have to search for the ingredients needed to make the tranquilizer. You’ll have to grab some vines and some berries and bring everything back to Luis so that he can synthesize the formula. Next up, visit Maxx to get the tranquilizer gun.

After the Cryolophosaurus has been flown back to camp, you’ll have to treat it and give it a shot so that it can start to regain its health. The next objective will also include helping an injured dinosaur, but before you can do that, you’ll have to fix a ladder that broke down, collect more ingredients, find a hair accessory that was stolen by a flying dinosaur, and risk your life by walking over a cliff to recover said hair accessory. You’ll also have to feed the dinosaurs. And if you’re lucky, you might find some amber eggs for mosquitos, ants, and beetles – there are 100 in total to collect.

 

DINOSAURS: Mission Dino Camp is a game based on the schleich Dinosaurs toys range. As Jack, you’ll be tasked with finding dinosaurs and helping them out, keeping a safe distance from predators as you collect herbs to create concoctions to tranquilize dinos or to heal their wounds. You’ll also have to fix things that have broken down – a ladder or a bridge – and feed the dinosaurs when needed. As is usually the case with multiplatform releases, some concessions had to be made to get this one running at a smoother framerate on Nintendo Switch. There’s going to be some pop-in here and there, textures are also set at a lower resolution, and the lighting has been scaled down. This one is aimed at a young demographic, and its graphics are similar to what you’d see in a late PlayStation 2 game at best. DINOSAURS: Mission Dino Camp is out on Nintendo Switch with a $39.99 price tag.
