Dinosaurs Unleashed - Play at Home - FAQs

We’ve brought back our Dinosaurs Unleashed augmented reality App, where players can hatch, feed and battle their very own dinosaurs – this year from the comfort of their own home!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and UK lockdown measures, we’ve adapted the app so it can now be played in the comfort of your own home. Players will be able to transform their home or garden into a prehistoric land where they can hatch, feed and battle their dinosaurs, and learn all about them too!

The App will be available to download from 9 April from the App Store and Google Play.

How much does the App cost to download?

The App is FREE to download. Once downloaded, you will be asked to register your details. You can play the App without registering by clicking on ‘skip’, however, to appear on the leader board you must create an account and register as a user.

The App is suitable for children of all ages (and event adult dino fans will enjoy it too!).

What times does the App work each day?

The App will be available to play at home 24 hours a day.

How many dinosaurs are there?

There are eight different dinosaurs in total, but your first dinosaur is already hatched for you! You can the remaining seven different dinosaur eggs around the Liverpool ONE website to hatch the rest! Go to www.liverpool-one.com/dinosaurs-unleashed to start the hunt! Each egg is an augmented reality marker point.

Whether you just want one or two dinosaurs or to collect them all is totally up to you.

How do I hatch a dinosaur?

To hatch a dinosaur, players should find one of seven eggs around the Liverpool ONE website. Once you’ve found an egg, make sure your App is open. Click the ‘Scan’ button and scan the ‘Scan here to hatch a dinosaur’ message on the egg using your device.

We suggest you print off the eggs and other markers or have them displayed on a laptop, tablet or other device so your smartphone is free to scan and play the game.

All that’s left to do is stand back and see what dinosaur you’ve hatched!

What happens to my dinosaur once it’s hatched?

Once you’ve hatched a dinosaur, it will go to your Dino Dock.

To access the Dino Dock, click the menu button in the top left-hand corner of the screen and select ‘Dino Dock’. Here you will see all the dinosaurs you’ve hatched. As well as details of their strength, speed, food and the ‘GO!’ button. If you click on the dinosaur image to bring up additional facts about your dinosaur.

By clicking the ‘GO!’ button you can place your dinosaur on screen, where you can walk and feed it to increase its happiness level, which is displayed as a bar at the top of the screen. To place your dinosaur in the scene, let the App find the floor via the marker and tap the orange joystick when the marker turns red to place your dinosaur. You can walk the dinosaur around screen and exercise it using the joystick (pictured). By pressing the ‘animation button’ the dinosaur will perform a unique animation, individual to its breed.

How do I feed my dinosaurs?

Across the Liverpool ONE website, you’ll find four feeding station markers. Hunt them out and scan the markers to store food in your App to feed your dinosaurs with. Remember, carnivores will only eat meat while herbivores will be more interested in leaves! When you want to feed the dinosaur, simply drag an item of food onto your screen and release it whilst in GO! mode, as detailed above.

The food icons represent how much food you have in your itinerary. On feeding your dinosaur the food stock icon will decrease accordingly, and the dinosaur’s happiness bar will increase.

What do I need to do to keep my dinosaurs happy?

Dinosaurs are happiest and strongest when they’ve been well fed and exercised.

Scanning an energy boost marker, which you’ll also find across the Liverpool ONE website and on our social media channels, will also help to keep your dinosaur happy. You’ll know if your dinosaurs are happy by checking the happiness bar at the bottom of your dinosaur’s profile in the App. The happiness bar will also appear at the top of your screen in GO! mode.

What is an energy boost?

An energy boost tops up your dinosaur’s happiness and strength – not all boosts have the same amount of energy, so it pays to keep looking for new boost points. You’ll find various energy boost points across the Liverpool ONE website and keep an eye on our social media channels for even more chances to boost your dinos’ energy.

What happens if I don’t feed my dinosaurs?

Imagine how you would feel if you hadn’t been fed. Your dinosaurs are just the same – they will be less happy, have less energy and be less successful in battles if they go too long without food. Be sure to stock up on food suppliers on the Liverpool ONE website and social media.

How do I battle my dinosaur?

You can battle your dinosaurs by scanning the Battle Arena marker on the Liverpool ONE website. Taking your dinosaur into battle is the only way to get onto the App leaderboard. (Please note, users must be registered to appear on the leaderboard)

To start a battle, players should simply scan the Battle Arena via the App ‘Scan’ screen and choose a dinosaur. Battles entail a sumo style game with the aim to push the competing dinosaur out of the arena in order to win. To win battles, players should feed and exercise their dinosaurs to make them stronger. As you win a battle you will proceed to the next level, with each level getting harder as you progress.

Do I have to be at Liverpool ONE to play with my dinosaurs?

No, at the moment this is a play at home game, so you won’t be able to play the game at Liverpool ONE.

How do I create videos and photos of my dinosaurs?

You can create videos and photos of your dinosaurs in GO! mode. Simply use the ‘REC’ and camera icons at the bottom of the screen. ‘REC’ will create a short video you can save to your phone or share across social channels. The camera icon will allow you to take an image of your dinosaur to save to your device or share as you wish.

Don’t forget to tag Liverpool in your dinosaur photos and videos:

Facebook – Liverpool ONE Official

Twitter – @Liverpool_ONE

How do I scan markers on the website?

To scan the markers, you’ll need to find them on the Liverpool ONE website. You’ll need to view the markers on a different device to the one you are playing the app with. For example, open the Liverpool ONE website on a computer, tablet or separate phone, then scan the marker with the phone you are playing the game on.

How do I create a dinosaur hunt in my home?

The best way to do this is find all of the egg markers on the website and print them off. Get someone else to hide them around your home and garden and then hunt at your leisure!

Where can I find out more about tricks and tips?

We’ve created a dedicated group on Facebook for players to share tips and discuss the game with Larry, our Park Ranger! For app users too young to access the Facebook group, an adult will need to help out. Join the group here.

Can I play the game alone?

Yes, absolutely. The game has been designed to be played alone. You can even choose to play against the computer in the battle arena if you prefer.

Where can I find fun facts and information about my dinosaurs?

Simply go to the Dino Dock and tap one of the dinosaurs. You’ll be able to find out all kinds of information about each type of dinosaur, such as their favourite food, size and weight and speed!
