In a sequel to the original Jurassic Park for Sega Genesis, you are back in this dinosaur-stomping adventure. As danger strikes on Isla Sorna, InGen’s Site B, your journey is to reach a radiophone in an attempt to call help from mainland, but not before exploring a variety of secret paths and hidden areas. Will you ever succeed phoning help and making it out alive in a helicopter? Only time can tell. Play as multiple characters featured in the hit blockbuster film, including mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park was released in the United States (although developed in Japan) and featured 5 different playable characters as well as over 30 heart-wrenching levels, some set in fantastic 3-demensional rendered graphics. An incredibly diverse set of weapons could be used throughout game play, including tranquilizer guns, rocket launchers, and shotguns. As the player you’ll encounter and attempt to capture a Stegosaurus and secure a rampaging Triceratops. In fact, you’ll meet over 20 different species of dinosaur all through the game. Using your game pad as the only control element you’ll hear music straight out of the movie, after all, “Jurassic Park is back…with a bite!”
