Carnivores 2 is a first-person hunting game, in which the player’s quarry is various species of dinosaur. A sequel to Carnivores, it expands on the original with new maps, new dinos, and new weapons, as well as improved audio and visuals. The game features 15 species of dinosaur (9 huntable), 6 weapons, 5 maps, and 6 equipment options to suit various styles of play. In a departure from the first game’s ranking system, Carnivores 2 awards points for successful hunts based on equipment and species, with which the player may purchase higher-valued weapons and species for subsequent hunts. The game also features a trophy room, where the players most recent kills are displayed with recorded stats, and an observer mode, where players can explore each map and learn how each dinosaur behaves without fear.
The game was originally developed by Action Forms, published by WizardWorks Software, and released in 1999 for Windows. In 2010, it was ported to other platforms under the name Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, with enhanced visuals and some added features. It was ported to iOS and Android by Tatem Games, and to PlayStation Portable and Playstation 3 by Beatshapers.
The DinoHunt Corporation continues to allow people to hunt dinosaurs on the planet FMM UV-32. After further exploration of the dinosaur planet, more islands have been opened to a growing number of customers.
