There's No Dinosaurs Review by Amjara


There's No Dinosaurs is a hidden object game where you try to find all the cute hand-drawn dinosaurs.

The Highs
The artwork I found to be very clean and used varied line weights. The scenes were busy but not cluttered and for the most part the dinosaurs were easy to find. Each dinosaur you need to find is clearly displayed on the side to keep track of and the overall layout of the hud is very organized and easy to read.

Other highlights include:

  • Hints available
  • Zoom controls available
  • The music is lively and fun.
  • A good game for young one

The Lows:

  • Levels are timed. I played on Normal difficulty and found no way to turn off the timer. Many, like myself, play these games to relax. A timer defeats this purpose. 
  • Players with ultrawide monitors use windowed mode. Full screen will cut off the bottom of the screen. 
  • There are no brightness controls and the map is black lines on white so this can cause glare that sadly can be harsh on the eyes. 
  • The maps are static and do not have any interactive features.
  • You will need to play the levels more than once (some multiple times) to get all achievements as what dinosaurs spawn into the level each play-though is random. Artificial grind that is not needed AND not fun.

Overall Experience
Veterans of this genre who play a lot of these games will find this one more basic with the maps being static with no interactive features. The timer is more of a distraction and sadly can not be disabled. Just ignore it, no achievements are tied to it. 

❗ Achievement hunters…take note of this fact. This game has some real serious grind if you want all the achievements. I don't mind playing a level twice on different difficulties but beyond that it is not fun. I read from other players that some re-played a level up to 8 times. 

This game is better suited for young ones to play. The maps are easy to read, the dinosaurs are easy to find (for the most part) and the overall aesthetics are cute and playful. 🦕
