Carnivores Ice Age is a first-person shooter video game developed by Action Forms, and later ported to iOS and Android devices by Tatem Games. It is the third game in the Carnivores series. Unlike the previous games, in which the player must hunt dinosaurs, Carnivores Ice Age allows the player to stalk large Cenozoic mammals such as mammoths and saber-toothed cats.

Story line[edit]

The story presented in this installment of the carnivores series is an addition to the existing canon that originated in the first two games. It's 2190 AD, on a routine exploration mission, research vessel FMM UV discovered a planet with a suitable climate for humankind. During the initial scouting expedition this young planet was declared inhospitable for colony life due to its unstable terrain and immense population of prehistoric reptiles. News of this amazing planet spread and reports of the "Dinosaur Planet" led an earth corporation to purchase the rights to the planet, and create DinoHunt Corp. DinoHunt created the unique opportunity for paying customers to become dinosaur hunters for the first time in 50 million years. DinoHunt Corp scientists also found Ice Age animals living in the Arctic regions of planet FMM UV-32 and they set up a separate hunting program for big game living there.[citation needed]


Following Carnivores 2, Ice Age got its own port to mobile devices, first appearing for iOS and later Android. the same version was carried out to the PS3 and PSP under Beatshapers' development. Fundamentally the same as the ported Carnivores 2, these new versions of Ice Age feature the same animals as before but with the inclusion of a few more new creatures to hunt. Weapons and maps also remain the same as the original, with only minor tweaks to enhance gameplay.
