You are an apprentice palaeontologist based in Kent, working on a top secret project. Extinction Island is a man-made island, near to Mongolia, created especially to breed dinosaurs using old fossilised bones and a whole lot of science!
One day, you wake up to a frantic video message from your mentor, Professor McDougall, who lives and works on site at Extinction Island. The Dinosaurs have broken loose! He’s the only survivor and he needs you to access secret information, discover his co-ordinates and send help before its too late!
Do you have the mental capacity to unravel the clues, save Professor McDougall and secure Extinction Island, before all is lost forever?

This should probably be marketed for children. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's just more of a very easy 20-minute game. 5 pounds might be a bit more reasonable than 15 (for two households).

The game was a nice simple layout - most clues from a still image with story pushed through by a video. Fairly basic clues to open padlocks. Considering the theme the game is actually about getting into a house and then a computer rather than actually escaping dinosaurs. Nicely presented and would be good for starters or younger players.

Sorry, but I didn't like it. I finished the game in 20 minutes (only by myself). I have played better online Escape Room games. This one has several OVERUSED puzzles. There is nothing new and special about it. And the last puzzle was really disappointing. (Like, really?). This game is suitable for children, in my opinion, not for advanced players. (P.S. There are no Dinos in the game)

On the easier side for enthusiasts, but perfect for the family. All in all, it’s a great intro to remote escaping and scratched a little bit of the escape room itch we’ve been feeling - and there was a dinosaur!
A group of five of us played this online game and safe to say we really enjoyed it. First of, one major plus is that this game is suitable for all ages, and although some of the puzzles are slightly trickier, this is a real family favourite.
