NewsWatch, a national television show, recently aired a segment on Jurassic Park Builder, a mobile resource management game by Ludia Inc. Scott Steinberg, author of the "Modern Parents Guide" and nationally recognized tech guru, joined NewsWatch to highlight the game.
Jurassic Park Builder is a resource management game by Ludia Inc. and Universal Pictures based on the Jurassic Park franchise. During the game, players build their own park finding and growing up to 30 various dinosaur species from DNA in amber to adult.
Throughout the game players interact with characters from the original franchise, listen to music, and hear roaring dinosaurs. Jurassic Park Builder has received over 1.3 million downloads in the past month, a result of heavy investment in graphics and game play. The game features a central mission with a “thrill mode” that is unlocked after certain levels are reached. Jurassic Park Builder is built on social interaction as well. Players can visit other parks, send gifts, help friends decode DNA, and identify dinosaur species.
Jurassic Park Builder is a free resource management game available on iTunes for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. In 2013, Ludia and Universal Pictures plan to release an Android and Facebook version.

About Jurassic Park
Since Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment first joined forces to unleash an adventure over 65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park has become the “premier” and “authentic” dinosaur brand the world over. When Jurassic Park was released in 1993, it became an instant phenomenon. In the years that followed, two additional films were released – The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III – bringing the trilogy’s worldwide box office total to more than $2 billion. The franchise continues to resonate with consumers worldwide via consumer products, popular attractions at Universal Studios Theme Parks and annual airings of the three films on a multitude of television networks. The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy, recently made available on Blu-ray for the first time, showcases all three films in high definition with 7.1 surround sound and hours of new bonus features.
