If you fancy some hunting why not go and shoot some dinosaurs? Carnivores Dinosaur Hunter for BlackBerry 10 brings us yet another game that has been successful on other platforms.
There are two styles of game within the game. 'Survive' is the less exciting of the two but is still a bunch of fun. Here you remain static with a shotgun as your only means of defense against the dinosaurs that are coming to eat you. Survive as long as you can before you are served up as their dinner!
The 'Hunt' section of the game is where the real action is at. You can freely roam an island looking for the dinosaurs that you have chosen to hunt. Depending how far you get in the game decides what weaponry you have at your disposal and you are also equipped with a pair of binoculars which not only allow you to see the dinosaurs, but they also provide you with the breed and distance from you. Also in your armory you have a camera. If you fancy it you can take photos of the dinosaurs you shoot and they will then appear in your photo gallery on your BlackBerry.
On-Screen controls are nice and simple. A virtual joy pad on the bottom left of the screen will guide you through the jungles - freeing up your right hand to select a weapon, aim and fire.
Graphics wise the game is sweet and although not an action packed shoot 'em up it's more of a chilled out game so not just one to kill a few minutes time.
