Jurassic Park and the prehistoric lifeforms (hopefully) contained therein. Has there ever been a movie franchise or chief supervillain more suitable for conversion to the medium of video gaming? My pet Tyrannosaurus rex insists the answer is an emphatic no, and who am I to argue? 42 licensed games published between 1993 and 2019revolving around themes emerging from Michael Crichton's novel source material, seemingly concur.
Over the years, every conceivable, popular console and computer has been furnished with at least one playable Jurassic Park venture into dinoland. Because I'm not immortal, here I solely focus on the seminal titles released in conjunction with the first movie, directed by Steven Spielberg. Ocean Software's Amiga top-down/FPS hybrid enjoys the bulk of the attention, whilst games released for other systems are touched upon in between joining the dots between celluloid and pixels.
