On launch in landscape orientation, kids are greeted by the Sun, smiling and speaking from the top left corner of the screen. He acts as a friendly guide through every activity, and provides positive reinforcement each time the child makes a correct selection. The first activity, Match the Dinosaur, challenges kids to scroll left or right and find the full size dinosaur that matches the thumbnail beside the Sun. Only one dinosaur is present each time the child looks, but it can be easily overlooked amidst the terrain and plant life of its natural habitat. Matching and touching the reptile, kids are rewarded with an animated playing card showing a close-up illustration and announcing the correct pronunciation of the species.
* Search for dinosaurs in their native habitat and win animated cards
* Take photos and listen to information about your favorite animals
* Find all the dinosaurs before nightfall...or use a flashlight to find them in the dark
* Make jigsaw puzzles from your photos (4, 6, 12, 24, 42 pieces)
* Play a photo quiz and try to win new snapshots for your album
* Game for children between 2 and 8 years old

* Album printing function
Having collected at least 12 playing cards, kids win their own blue camera with zoom lens. Using this camera, they can frame and photograph any dinosaur in any habitat from far left to far right. Taking a photo of any animal unlocks a brief description, which can be heard aloud. In the Find the Dinosaurs in the Dark activity, players try to touch as many dinos as possible before night falls. Once it is dark, kids can use their flashlight to find the missing animals. Make a Jigsaw Puzzle from a Photo allows children to take a photo and then turn it into a jigsaw puzzle by shaking the iDevice (the more they shake, the more pieces). Puzzles can be easy or hard, from 4 to 42 pieces. Lastly, the Play the Photo Quiz activity asks kids to find any dinosaur with a question mark superimposed on it. Touching it brings up an interactive quiz, where kids can show off all they have learned.
"After your child has mastered the animals from all over the world - from the Spotted Cuscus to the Clouded Leopard - with our Find Them All: Looking for Animals, it's time to move on to the dinosaurs," commented Philippe Bobis of Knbmedia. "What five-year-old doesn't want to learn to say Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus?"
