Jurassic Park (Sega CD)
by Electronic Arts
Face it. You're obsessed with Jurassic Park. You saw the movie the weekend it opened. You ate up Sega Visions? early coverage of the Sega Genesis, Game Gear, and CD games. Now you're ready to master the CD version of this Action/Puzzle blockbuster level by level. We'll help you out with an indepth look at the Triceratops area, but be warned. Collecting that egg ain't easy, even with a guided tour.
Prehistoric Terror In 3-D
The game picks up where the movie left off, with the dinosaurs loose and wreaking havoc in the ill-fated theme park. You're a scientist sent to salvage eggs of seven dinosaur species before Jurassic Park is completely destroyed. All your adventures take place in 3-D first-person perspective. Add 3-D QSound, and you've got a terrifyingly realistic mission ahead of you. But one step at a time. Let's explore the Triceratops area.
First, a little background on your quarry. Triceratops are meadow-dwelling herbivores, which means they won't make a meal of you. Now for the bad news: They weigh six tons, and they're quite a bit faster than you. You don't want to be in the way when they charge. They're also fiercely protective of their family. Yes, that includes eggs.
Oh, a couple more problems. Old rhino-face isn't the only dinosaur you're up against in the Triceratops plain. And then there are all those locked rooms, hidden tools, and secret codes. So follow our step-by-step guide to retrieving an egg. And hope for the best.
Ritrieving A Triceratops Egg
Honk the horn to startle the Triceratops. The instant it faces you, honk again. When the Triceratops bumps the jeep, pick up everything that falls out as fast as you can. Honk once more, and grab the Injector when it falls out of the jeep. Act fast, or you'll get splattered.
Highfall it to the pump room, and use the injector on the sick Triceratops outside. Return to the grazing plain.
Use the foliage to distract ttie baby Triceratops.
Open the metal box with your crowbar. Grab the Triceratops cardkey inside.
Return to the Visitor Center. Go upstairs and use the cardkey to open Muldoon's office. Open the cabinet. Take the Gas Gun and the ammunition inside.
Play the Triceratops CD on the machine next to the computer, then press the Reveal Code button. Memo rize the combination.
Get first aid if you need it, and save your game.
Return to the pump building, open the door with your cardkey, and — quickl — gas the Dilos before they spew greenstuff at you.
Place the egg in the incubator.
Use the first aid kit if you need it, examine the cabinet, and retrieve the Brachiosaurus CD.
Get the night-vision goggles from the cabinet in Muldoon's office.
Finally, view your messages on the computer in the control room, and save your game.

The biggest and best Jurassic Park game is coming to The Next Level on your Sega CD. Jurassic Park CD is one of the most exciting multimedia games ever to be put on a disc. We are sure you've never seen anything like it. Jurassic Park continues to be big news. Almost everyone has seen the movie, bought a Jurassic Park shirt or tie, Raptor Egg candy or other licensed stuff. Sega's Genesis and Game Gear versions of Jurassic Park are major hits. Now, live the adventure.
Jurassic Park CD is a different game than the Genesis and Game Gear versions. The first thig you will notice is how real everything seems. The entire game takes place in first-person-perspective. You see everything through your character's eyes, as if you were there.
Jurassic Park CD invites interaction. The only way to win the game is to explore, search, touch, investigate and try every object. Graphics are sharp and lifelike, incorporating detailed, digitized full-motion video in vivid color. Sounds are also true-to-life and recorded with QSound a new 3-D sound technology Sega went to the deepest, darkest swamps across the nation to record the jungle sounds for ultimate realism. Play Jurassic Park CD through a stereo and you'll hear the movement of dinosaurs as they pass left-to-right.
The game begins where the movie ends. You play as a scientist sent into Jurassic Park shortly after the dinosaurs have gone on a rampage. The helicopter crashes as you attempt to land, leaving you stranded on the island. You have only 12 hours to rescue the eggs of seven different species of dinosaurs and place them in the incubator in the Visitor Center. With no map of the island, you have to rely on Territory markers and animated kiosks to learn about the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park and to find the Visitor Center.
Icons and Action
Jurassic Park CD is icon driven. To pick up, look at or use an item, or to move in a direction, you use the D-Button to "point" and press the appropriate control pad button, almost like using a mouse. As you move the cursor around the screen, you'll see the cursor change to one of three things: a magnifying glass inviting you to take a closer look, an arrow to indicate that you can move from the Area in this direction, or a green cursor that indicates you take some sort of action. A hand indicates that you can pick up an object and add it to your inventory.
Since they've sent you in to collect eggs from seven very large...and dangerous...dinosaur species, you'll be in need of some ingenuity and a variety of tools. Tools you can find aplenty...if you search hard enough. These items sometimes are in plain sight and sometimes are revealed only after a closer look. Using an object on another item outside your inventory, like bolt cutters on a lock, often has positive results.
Your ride in crash lands on the Island. You have only 12 hours to rescue the eggs. What should you do first?
Take a look around the helicopter. You don't want to miss important items, like the Stun Gun.
You'll find dinosaur eggs when you inspect the Areas within each Territory. Once collected, you still have to get them to the incubator in the Visitor's Center.
Brief intermission scenes take you on a journey between Territories and Areas. The footage was taken from live video and heightens the feeling that "you are really here."
Dr. Robert Bakker is one of the world's leading authorities on dinosaur behavior. He is a way cool guy. Press the "Play" icon at the information kiosks and you'll receive a short briefing from Dr. Bakker on the dinosaurs in the Territory and their behavior.
Use Card Keys to gain admittance to locked areas ot the park.
You'll need the right Card Keys...and the right tools...to fully explore the Visitor Center. Somewhere here you'll find the incubator.
Use a Card Key to open the Control Room door.
Something important is in this box. You need a specific tool to open it.
Explore the Control Room carefully. You just may find some computer equipment that will be of great help.
Jurassic Park CD features spectacular digitized video and sound sequences, such as climbing or descending stairs or walking down halls.
The Super Stunner is your best bet against T-Rex. You'll need a special Card Key to get it, though.

Raptors run rampant through the caverns. Hits is one of the trickiest Areas of the Veiociraptor Territory.
Keep a close watch on your motion detector. Raptors are smart move fast and can easily catch you by surprise.
Uh oh. Here comes trouble. Hope you are fast on the Stunner or the Tranquilizer Gun.
Try using a rock on the right side of the cave mouth to give yourself a path.
Triceralops are large and armored, but are herbivores and harmless...If left alone.
Now you know what happened to this jeep. Don't let yourself get caught in the same fate.
Look carefully in the Triceralops Territory to find this important case...and its contents.
These lumbering giants won't pay you any atten-tion...until you try to snatch their eggs. Be ready for a quick getaway.
Getting to the Gallimimus eggs calls for some tricky moves. First, roll the fencing away from the base of the grate. You'll find a pair ot bolt cutters. Pick them up, then select toll cutters from the inventory and use them on the grate. It's open and you are through! Cut the grate on the other side and look left.
Move through the Gallimimus Territory and you might see the mighty T-Rex at the dinner table.
Gallimimus is light and fast on its feet, but can be easily frightened.
Tyrannosaurus Rex Territory
In the Tyrannosaurus Rex Territory, you should move softly and fast. A Card Key will open this gate.
This is about as fatal a view as you will ever see.
If you see these legs, you have trouble. When the door is open, super stun him, then run for your life.
Tunnels and drain pipes are the safest way through T-Rex Territory.
