The Carnivores games are a series of hunting simulation video games featuring prehistoric species ranging from dinosaurs to extinct Megafauna (depending on the title). The first three games were developed for the PC by Action Forms and published by WizardWorks between 1998 and 2001. The fourth game, Carnivores Cityscape, was developed by Sunstorm Interactive and released by Infogrames in 2002. Eight years later and the fifth installment in the series is released, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, a port of Carnivores 2 to iOS and Android by Tatem Games and the PSP by Beatshapers. Carnivores Ice Age soon followed and received its own port debuting for iOS, eventually making its way into Android. September 2013 marked the release of yet another game, Carnivores Dinosaur Hunter HD, this time exclusively for the PS3. This new title includes new graphics and new hunting experiences packed with exciting features never before seen in any other entry. Two years later, the title Carnivores Dinosaur Hunter Reborn[1] was released for the PC. The series has attracted a small cult following.
