Gigantosaurus: The Game

A special treat for all those dino lovers! Launching next week is Gigantosaurus: The Game, based on the hit Disney animated series. It will be available on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One or PS4 so everyone can join in with the dino fun. So who is up for a roarsome adventure?

Gigantosaurus: The Game will allow many little ones and their families into the wonderfully vibrant world of Gigantosaurus for some exciting exploring adventures like never before. This new adventure will allow up to 4 players to explore and race together across the vast, prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus in a one-of-a-kind dinosaur adventure that is part saving the world, part rally racing extravaganza.

The game presents an open world, the Savannah, a place that, as the narrator says, is beautiful, but dangers can arise. As the inquisitive Mazu, playful Tiny, timid Bill, and courageous Rocky embark on a quest, facing their individual fears and working together to solve a problem. Like the meteor that's blocked up Giganto's Volcano. The design is great, with many elements bringing the game to life. You can discover the wonderful world of Gigantosaurus on your own, or with other dinos friends where you can solve quests and puzzles in order to save the day. And the end of each story is the start of a super rally to the next zone. Will you be the most fearsome adventurer or the fastest Racer?

To mark our special dino adventure we hosted a small family dino partyyyy as my daughter enjoys a party. It was quite fun preparing for our family dinosaur party. The dinosaur tablescape was so much fun but I really wanted to keep it minimal design with four main elements. A table cover, a runner, centerpiece, and place settings, but seeing as there was only a few of us we had to try and be creative. We used our own table cloth but trying to find the best table runner that has dinos was really hard, so we used some dino some gift wrap - and we had a table runner. For our centrepiece we used some artificial plants that we already pinched from our kitchen decor and then strategically placed lots of dinosaurs along the tables. It was the perfect dino table. For the place setting we did try and keep it minimal with the use of some dino bowls, gold stripped straws, some napkins and some home made food labels.

One of the easiest ways to bring together a party theme, apart from decorations, is fun food! All of your food needed to be of a dino theme, of course. But to help make it easier for us all we tried to keep to buffet style food with Dino Claws, Dino Eggs, Homemade Dino Bones, Dino Poop and Dino-wiches. All washed down with some Volcano Punch. It was the perfect way to mark the release of Gigantosaurus: The Game.

Not forgetting the party games. We had some fun with lots of different dino masks, colouring and a dino hunt. It was a fun filled afternoon with good food, dino fun and there was even party bags, who doesn't love a party bag.

After we went back to playing Gigantosaurus. The missions of this first level included rescuing some scattered eggs all over the stage or collecting nuts, planting seeds to feed another dinosaur. Basically the same concept as Mario Kart, although the mechanics were not very clear if it was only about reaching the goal first or we also have to collect items. You can see the game has been especially designed for little ones as parts of the game are easy, however there are parts that need a little more logical thinking or problem solving all key for social and overall development.

All three of us enjoyed playing the first level together and we didn't really find any problems with going onto the next level. My daughter loved playing with Tiny because her favourite dinosaur is a Triceratops and I definitely loved Mazu, simply because I am Mazu. Meanwhile my husband switched between the Rocky and Bill due to their individual skills and characteristics.

Gigantosaurus: The Game is quite beautiful and with very striking colours for all the elements of the scenes and for the characters. Each dinosaur is well detailed and has its own personality and ability, however the game also featured certain lights in the sky and purple bubbles to let you know where you need to go or where you need to be. This game was fun, vibrant and exciting new experience for everyone in this household. This was the first game that our daughter really enjoyed and was completely engaged with, I am more than sure that fan of Gingantosaurus or Dinosaurs will love playing this - they will have one GIGANTIC Adventure. The game will launch on March 27, 2020 on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
