The game allows players to assume the roles of over 50 Lego versions of characters from the film series.
The game's central location is the Mos Eisley Cantina, a spaceport bar on the planet Tatooine. At the counter, the player may use their Lego studs to purchase characters, vehicles, gameplay hints and extras, or activate cheat codes. In a small area outside the cantina, players may view collected vehicles. The game is broken into levels, which are accessed from the cantina. each film is represented by six levels, representing key locations and scenes in that film.

2007 - LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Now this one is basically "LEGO Star Wars" and "LEGO Star Wars ll" mixed into one. The only new thing is that it has two new levels: ''Anakin's Flight'' and ''Bounty Hunter Pursuit''
2008 - LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a 2008 video game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by LucasArts. The game follows the storylines from the original Indiana Jones films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade. However, the developers modified the storylines in order to fit the movies into six subsections per movie.
There are 82 (standard) playable characters in total, 23 characters which are given to players in the story, and 59 characters which may be purchased from the in-game Library. Then, there are the two custom figures which can be made by the players, and the bonus character Han Solo.
New features were added to the gameplay from the Lego Star Wars series, such as the ability for the player to interact with objects in their environment, e.g. bottles, swords and guns. Players can also build and ride vehicles. The game also incorporates character phobias from the films. For example, if Indiana Jones sees a snake, Willie sees a spider or Henry Jones Senior or Elsa see a rat, they will be frozen with fear and have limited movement capacity until the animals are either dead or out of range. Also, new melee attacks, such as the Whip snag have been added.
2008 - LEGO Batman: The Videogame
Lego Batman: The Videogame is an action-adventure video game developed by Traveller's Tales, published by Warner Bros., and released in 2008 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, Mac OS X and Wii.
Lego Batman: The Videogame is notable for being the first Traveller's Tales Lego game to have an original plot. Unlike previous Traveller's Tales LEGO games, it is based more on the concept of a franchise, rather than following the plot of a particular movie or other story from it. The game features Batman and Robin fighting crime and villainy in Gotham City. Batman's most dangerous foes have all escaped from Arkham Asylum and divided themselves into three groups of five, each led by a "clever" and well-known villain with plans to achieve a personal goal:
- Riddler is after the city savings in the Gotham Gold Reserves. He is aided by Clayface, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and Two-Face.
- Penguin plans to seize control of Gotham using remote-controlled penguin robots. He is aided by Bane, Killer Croc, Man-Bat, and Catwoman.
- Joker intends to blow up the cathedral and spread his deadly laughing gas across Gotham. He is aided by Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Mad Hatter, and Killer Moth.
The level hub for the heroes, similar to the Mos Eisley Cantina in Lego Star Wars and Barnett College in Lego Indiana Jones, is the Batcave, where the player can purchase additional characters and view unlockables. The corresponding hub for the villains is Arkham Asylum, where players can create their own character using parts from characters already unlocked, as well as a limited array of weapons.
2009 - LEGO Rock Band
Lego Rock Band is a music video game. The game, as with other games in the Rock Band series, allows up to four players to use instrument controllers to play lead and bass guitar, drums, and vocals on a number of rock music songs. In addition, aspects of building with Lego bricks are incorporated into the game, allowing players to customize their avatars and other band assistants, and include additional Lego-themed gameplay modes.
2009 - LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues
Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a 2009 video game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by LucasArts. It is the sequel to the 2008 game, Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures.The game starts in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Part 1. There are 6 hubs in the game in total, with 5 story mode levels in each hub, 5 treasure mode levels, 5 bonus levels, and 1 super bonus level.
Lego Indiana Jones 2:The Adventure Continues lets the player control a Lego figure in areas related to movie scenes and situations. Each movie is broken down into five levels, with the exception of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was divided into three five level parts. The movies would also include a level that would have the player defeat a certain number of various enemies to complete the level. The vehicle levels involved the player using their vehicle to destroy enemy vehicles. The last level of each movie would consist of a major boss battle, where the player would need to defeat the movies' main antagonist.
Two-player co-op mode has been enhanced with split-screen; rather than forcing both characters to always be close enough to fit on the same screen, the game will seamlessly split when characters wander apart and merge into one screen when both players are near each other. The hub has also been redesigned; where before each hub was a small area with easy access to levels which had been unlocked, now each hub is a large area in which entrances to levels must be discovered.
2010 - LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1–4
The game is based on the Lego Harry Potter line and its storyline covers the first four films in the Harry Potter series: The Sorcerer's Stone, the Chamber of Secrets, the Prisoner of Azkaban and the Goblet of Fire.
Lego Harry Potter 's gameplay is similar to that of most previous Lego games, with an emphasis on collecting, exploring, and solving puzzles. Casting spells is an integral part of the gameplay, with a wide range of spells available for unlocking as the player progresses. As there are many spells available in the game, the player can use the spell wheel to select the spell. Potion-making is another integral feature; potions can help the player complete levels or, if created incorrectly, have adverse side effects such as turning the player into a frog.
The bigger areas in Hogwarts have led developer Traveller's Tales to improve the overall level design. Also included is another bonus level that allows players to customize the level similar to Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues. If the player is lost in-game, they can follow a trail of Ghost Studs to the next level. These do not count towards the stud total, but will guide the player to the next section of the level. However one of the collectible 'red bricks', found in the courtyard next to Herbology, gets the player an 'extra' that makes the ghost studs worth 1,000 each. The central hub is Diagon Alley and its entrance through the Leaky Cauldron. Players can access a room at the second floor of the building to watch videos from the game, as well as using a notice board with pictures from where the player can play completed levels again. Diagon Alley serves as a series of stores where the player is able to buy characters or change a number of customizable ones, spells, and bricks that have a varying range of uses, such as changing the player's wand to a carrot, or making the player invincible. Players are also able to visit Gringotts or Borgin and Burkes in order to play extra levels. There are 167 characters purchasable in the game.
2011 - LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
Overall, the game engine used by previous Lego Star Wars games has been upgraded. It can now hold more than 200 moving units or objects on-screen. The graphics are more detailed than before, and the lighting has been improved to enhance the feeling of depth. New features include scenarios in which players can command large armies of clones to battle against droid armies and Story Swap mode, in which players can switch between two characters in different areas whose stories run simultaneously. The game includes split screen combat. All new character features include lightsaber throwing, lightsaber slicing, picking up droids and stepping on certain pads in which Jedi do "combo moves" to destroy certain objects. Vehicle levels have been upgraded slightly; now, players can land their ship and begin fighting on foot.
The game also features some real-time strategy elements, such as commanding large ground armies across battlefields. Also, the space fights have been remodelled to use a more instinctive, 3D-space battle sensation. It is set during the Clone Wars animated series, as well as certain scenes from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, unlike the original games, which featured characters from the six films of Star Wars such as Lego Star Wars: The Video Game and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.
2011 - LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game is a video game in the Lego video game franchise, developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Disney Interactive Studios and the first Lego game from a Disney movie. The game is based on the Pirates of the Caribbean film series and its storyline covers all four films: "The Curse of the Black Pearl" - "Dead Man's Cheast" - "At World End" - "On Strange Tides"
Gameplay is similar to previous Lego games in the series. The game uses the same two player drop in drop out co-op mechanics used in all the Lego games. The hub in this game is called The Port. From here, players advance through the game, unlock characters and extras, and as players get further through the game, The Port will evolve and get bigger, revealing new areas to unlock and discover new things. Like past titles, different characters have different abilities. For example, everyone can swim under water, and members of Davy Jones's crew can breathe whilst doing so, Captain Jack Sparrow has the ability to use his compass, which points him to hidden items throughout the level, Will Turner has the ability to throw axes at targets to complete objectives, while female characters such as Elizabeth Swann have the ability to jump higher than other characters in order to access areas unreachable to other characters.
2011 - LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5–7
The game is based on the Lego Harry Potter line and is based on the final three books and four films in the Harry Potter series: The Order of the Phoenix - The Half Blood Prince - The Deathly Hallows Part 1 - The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 basis gameplay follows the standards of that of the previous game as adapted to the story of the last three books and four films, covering a wide range of new characters, locations and items. The online play feature that appeared in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is absent from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of this game.
2012 - LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes features an open world setting. The game's gameplay is similar to its predecessor, Lego Batman: The Videogame, but allows players to play as classic Batman characters and other various DC Comics superheroes, such as Robin, Batgirl, Green Lantern, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. There are 70 playable characters. New gadgets such as Robin's Hazard Cannon, Superman's heat vision, and a Power Suit for Batman were introduced. An optional 2-player cooperative play mode, is also present. However, a split screen is used, due to the game having an open-world environment. The Wii U version allows the use of the gamepad's screen instead of a split screen, allowing both players to have independent screens. Most of Gotham City can be broken into "bricks", as players can use the broken bricks to build new suits or construct objects that can help solve puzzles.
In Gotham City, an award show is being held where Gotham's finest is attending. The "Man of the Year" award is being presented to Bruce Wayne with Lex Luthor being runner-up. All is well until a group of Batman's villains (consisting of Penguin, Riddler, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, and Joker) show up as Joker steals the award thinking that he is more deserving of the title. Bruce Wayne steps out and changes into the Batsuit and becomes Batman. Along with Robin, Batman confronts and defeats all of the villains, but Joker escapes. After an extended chase, Batman captures Joker and he is thrown into Arkham Asylum. Sometime later, Lex Luthor arrives at the asylum and breaks the Joker out using a weapon called "The Deconstructor" (which deconstructs unbreakable black objects, and is powered only by kryptonite). Joker then uses the weapon to release all of the inmates from Arkham Asylum. Batman is called in to round up the villains. After capturing several of the villains in Arkham Asylum's maze, he discovers pieces of bricks that have the energy signature from Lex Luthor's weapon.After learning of a break-in at Ace Chemicals, Batman and Robin search for clues as to what the Joker is up to. After an explosion begins to destroy the factory, the Dynamic Duo are rescued by Superman. Batman then learns what the Joker was up to. The chemicals stolen from the plant that although not particularly dangerous alone can be combined to form a synthetic Kryptonite. Punching the signature into the Batmobile's on-board computer, Batman and Robin catch up to Lex Luthor's convoy and infiltrate it. After a brief skirmish, Batman is thrown out of the massive convoy and enters the Batmobile. Unfortunately, Joker has completed his synthetic Kryptonite (which is used to power Luthor's weapon) and uses it to blast apart the Batmobile. Back at the Batcave, Batman is trying to figure out Luthor's next move. He determines the new Kryptonite is harmless, but it proves to be a tracking device which leads Luthor and Joker to the cave. Batman has a Kryptonite Vault, which he uses 'In case Superman turns evil', which The Joker knew about. Using the Deconstructor, the villains destroy the cave, escaping with a load of Kryptonite. Having no way out, Batman reluctantly allows Robin to call Superman for help and they escape the collapsing cave.
Batman and Superman team up and assault Luthor's massive airship. Batman is thrown off after confronting Lex Luthor and Superman saves him. The World's Finest then attempt to infiltrate Luthor's LexCorp headquarters in Metropolis, but are caught and forced to fight their way through the LexBots. After getting deep in the heart of the fortress-like building, Luthor reveals a giant Joker-esque robot and flees back to Gotham. After trying to sabotage the robot en route to Gotham, Superman and Batman are thrown off when the Kryptonite power-source is exposed and Superman begins to lose power. A weakened Superman and Batman then realize Luthor's plan. Using Joker's special gases, he can make everyone agree with him and win the Presidency. Batman and Superman then attack the robot again and force it to crash. After damaging it more, Batman forces most of the Kryptonite out of the robot, making a giant Joker face in Gotham viewable from the Watchtower. In turn, the Justice League is called in by Martian Manhunter. Realizing he has been defeated, Lex Luthor begins to lay siege to Wayne Tower. The Justice League arrive to help Batman and Superman and successfully stop and destroy the robot. With all of the Arkham inmates, Lex Luthor, and Joker captured, Batman says it is good for him to have friends he can call on in times of need. They all then decide to repair the Batcave as Green Lantern shoots a beam of green energy into space where he calls some of the other Green Lanterns to help.
2012 - LEGO The Lord of the Rings
Based on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, the game follows the original storylines of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events, "re-imagined with the humour and endless variety of Lego play". The game utilises music and voice acting taken from all three films of the film trilogy.
New features are added to the gameplay from the older Lego video games, such as the travelling through Middle-earth in between levels, and switching between storylines of different heroes. Players also collect and use a variety of weaponry and magical items, including the Light of Eärendil, Elven Rope, swords, and bows. New character abilities include Lighting up dark places (Frodo, Gandalf, Radagast and Saruman) and being thrown at things (Gimli and Gloin). Each character has their own inventory that can be used to collect new and better items. The game has a total of 18 levels (plus a bonus level upon completion), as well as a hidden ending, which is unlocked after 100% of the game is complete.
The game follows the storylines from the The Lord of the Rings films: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. However, the developers modified the storylines to fit the events into a number of game chapters per film. Notable scenes have been recreated from the films, such as the memorable Moria scenes. Each different character has at least one special ability. The game features a new dynamic for a Lego game, where the characters will be able to acquire new items and weaponry as the story advances.
"In contrast to our other games, covering those three films is an epic journey," says TT Games chief Jonathan Smith. "It really is a sense of an adventure rather than a series of stories. You build up your characters as you venture through the world of Middle-Earth. Our hub will be the world of Middle-Earth. As you see that unfold, as you journey through it toward your ultimate destination on this epic quest, that gives it a sense that is completely different to the open world of Gotham of Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. You're really driving forward on a quest. Practically, in terms of the levels there's a mix between fighting and puzzling as you'd expect. We have some very big battles. We have some cool enemies. And then, for puzzling, if you're a connoisseur of the series perhaps you'll remember something more like Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures where we're picking up and dropping items and there's some inventory-based play as well and customization of characters as they go through the adventure."
2013 - LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Following the gameplay style of past Lego titles, players are able to control approximately 150 characters from the Marvel Universe, each with their own unique abilities. For example, Spider-Man can swing on his webs and use his spider sense while the Hulk, who is larger than the standard minifigures, can throw large objects, as well as shrink down into Bruce Banner to access computers. Galactus was chosen as the main antagonist in the game. According to game director, Arthur Parsons, and producer, Phil Ring, one of the main settings of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a Lego version of New York City. In addition, a Lego version of Asgard was created.
Silver Surfer is knocked out of the sky by Doctor Doom; the board shatters into several "Cosmic Bricks". With these blocks containing immense power, Doom captures the powerless Surfer and forges an alliance with other villains to collect the Cosmic Bricks and make the powerful "Doom Ray of Doom" to repel Galactus and rule the world. However, S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury calls upon all superheroes to retrieve the bricks before Doom. Sandman and Abomination hold Grand Central hostage in search of a Cosmic Brick. Iron Man, Hulk and Spider-Man succeed in stopping them. Captain America and Mister Fantastic head to the Baxter Building, which has fallen under the control of Doc Ock. When the fight goes through the Daily Bugle, Spider-Man lends a hand. The heroes defeat Doc Ock at Times Square, but the Cosmic Brick is stolen by the Green Goblin, who takes it to Oscorp. Fury tasks Black Widow and Hawkeye with finding the Cosmic Brick while Spider-Man heads to Oscorp in pursuit of the Goblin. The three are forced to face Venom inside Oscorp's underground lab while the Goblin once again escapes.
Wolverine, Iron Man and the Hulk secure the Raft, a maximum-security prison being attacked by Leader, and Sabretooth. Magneto is revealed to be behind the mass breakout, and quickly makes his escape from the facility with the help of Mystique, destroying Iron Man's armor in the process. Stark goes with Captain America to Stark Tower for a new suit, but upon arriving, the duo is forced to use the House Party Protocol to stop an invasion courtesy of the Mandarin, Killian, Loki and Extremis soldiers. Loki escapes with an arc reactor. Tracking its energy signature, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Human Torch infiltrate a HYDRA base and defeat the Red Skull and Arnim Zola with the help of Captain America and Wolverine. Loki escapes using a portal to Asgard, while the portal itself is accidentally destroyed. Captain America, Wolverine and the Human Torch meet Thor, who takes them to Asgard. Upon arriving at the Bifrost, they find Loki commands the Frost Giants. Loki enhances his powers with the Tesseract, unleashing the Destroyer armor on the heroes. They disable the Destroyer while Loki escapes.
Wolverine steals the Tesseract, accidentally drawing the Brotherhood to the X-Mansion in search of it. Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Iceman and Beast work together to fend off Toad, Pyro, Acolyte soldiers and Juggernaut. However, Magneto and Mystique escape with the Tesseract. At this time, Fury and the Fantastic 4 head to Castle Doom, where Green Goblin is defeated while Loki and Doom escape with the bricks; however, they do rescue the Silver Surfer. Thor, Iron Man and Spider-Man head to a sub where they defeat MODOK, and helped by Jean in heading back to land underwater. Magneto uses the Statue of Liberty to attack Mister Fantastic, Hulk and Wolverine. The heroes enter its head, they defeat Mastermind. Unfortunately, Magneto decapitates the statue tossing the head into the city.
Believing Magneto went to Asteroid M Island, Thing, Captain America and Storm arrive and defeat Magneto's acolytes along with raptors from the Savage Land and Rhino. Magneto is revealed as Mystique in disguise, to lure the heroes to the island while the real Magneto raises Asteroid M into space. Doom and Loki arrive on Asteroid M and continue building the Doom Ray, with their plan nearing completion. Iron Man, Thor and Spider-Man arrive there and fight Magneto, defeating him, but Iron Man and Thor are incapacitated by Doom in the process. Spider-Man goes on with Storm, Thing and Captain America and they defeat Doom. Loki then reveals he manipulated the villains to create a craft from the Cosmic Bricks, and powered by the Tessarect, for controlling Galactus to destroy Earth and Asgard. The heroes narrowly escape Asteroid M as Galactus destroys it before he heads towards New York.
The heroes and villains team-up to defeat Galactus on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Galactus and Loki are warped into a large portal, thus trapping both of them into an unknown part of space while Thor shatters the mind-control craft with his hammer; Galactus decided to use Loki as a palate cleanser. Fury also retrieves the Tesseract in the process. The villains are given time to escape before they are pursued. With all the Cosmic Bricks collected and reassembled back into his surfboard, Silver Surfer thanks the heroes and departs on his surfboard into deep space, promising to lead Galactus away from Earth.
2014 - LEGO The Lego Movie Videogame
Continuing the trend of gameplay from previous Lego titles by TT Games, the game puts players in control of various characters from the movie, making use of Lego pieces to make their way through several levels. For the first time in the series, environments are completely made out of Lego pieces. The game introduces two main new character types: Regular Builders (such as Emmet in earlier levels) and Master Builders (such as Batman, Benny, Princess Uni-Kitty, Vitruvius, and Wyldstyle). Regular Builders are unable to normally construct objects out of piles of Lego pieces and instead require instruction pages that are found throughout each level for the construction worker characters to use. Using these, players follow the instructions to build objects with specific pieces like real-life LEGO sets. Master Builders, on the other hand, have the ability to grab Lego pieces from the environment and use them to create something new. While Lord Business is known for using switches in either his Lord Business form or his President Business form, other known abilities for each of the characters include fixing machinery, hacking into computers, destroying gold bricks with lasers, destroying silver bricks with rockets or dynamite, starting fires, and putting out fires.
2014 - LEGO The Hobbit
The game shows several features from the previous games, including a feature where the user should locate specific materials to build a big Lego object. When the user selects and input the correct materials a screen is displayed where the Lego machine is built and the player should select the correct pieces in exchange for studs.
Also the characters have different actions to perform, making the Dwarf Company a group with different capabilities during the mission, including someone that has archery abilities, another that uses a big hammer that can move big objects, other with the abilities to extract minerals from stones and so on. Bilbo improves his abilities as the game advances, first when he gains Sting he has the ability to be a more skilled fighter and when he gets the One Ring he can disappear and build invisible Lego structures.
The game, similar to the latest Lego games is composed by a big map, rather than a single hub, the player can move along different events where different characters ask users to retain a specific material from a mission or to exchange materials.
Locations once included in this game were Bag End, Hobbiton, The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, Lake-Town, Dol Guldur, Rivendell and The Lonely Mountain.
Much like its predecessors, the game presents storylines from the The Hobbit films: An Unexpected Journey and Desolation of Smaug. However, the developers modified the storylines to fit the events into a number of game chapters per film, as well as adding the humour the series has become known for.
It was reported at the London Toy Fair in January 2014 that a DLC would be released covering the events of the final film in The Hobbit series, to be released around the time of the film at the end of that year. However, no DLC was released. Over a year later, in a correspondence with GameSpot it was revealed that, despite no actual cancellation of the DLC, there were no longer any plans to adapt the film as a DLC, nor to adapt it as another game.
2014 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham
The core gameplay of Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is very similar to that of the two previous Lego Batman games: Lego Batman: The Videogame and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. The player controls any one of a wide assortment of characters (of which there are over 150 from a third-person perspective, primarily fighting enemies, solving puzzles, and collecting Lego 'studs', the game's form of currency. Using attack combinations in combat will multiply the amount of studs earned. Up to two players can play in co-operative mode.
There are many different environments in the game. All are based on DC comics' universe's locations. As in previous Lego games, levels are unlocked for 'Free Play' mode once they are completed in Story Mode. 'Free Play' allows the player to replay any level they have completed, but with any characters they have unlocked so far. This permits access to special areas containing additional collectables, that the player was unable to get to before. This is unlike Story mode, in which the player may only switch between the preset characters involved in that scene.
There are several level hubs for the heroes in the game such as the Batcave, the 'Moon', and the Hall of Justice. Here, the player may explore and complete puzzles to find, earn or unlock 'gold bricks' or 'character tokens', access the game's main levels, and complete side quests. There are also other specific features such as enabling 'red bricks' (a form of cheat), and viewing collected 'mini kits' (which are collected in levels). Players may also create their own character using parts from characters already unlocked, as well as a limited array of weapons. The six 'Lantern Planets' are another type of explorable world in the game; they are much the same gameplay wise as the main hub areas and levels, with the main difference being that the Lantern Planets are larger and more open-world focused.
Players are able to swap the costumes of some of the main heroes (Batman, Robin, Cyborg, the Joker, and Lex Luthor) with many differing ones, each containing unique abilities and different colour schemes. The sonic suit can break glass, the demolition suit lets the user set down and launch bombs to destroy silver Lego objects, and the hazard suit, which lets the user walk through toxic waste and suck up special Lego pieces which are used to progress through levels. Robin and Lex Luthor can wear the Technology suit that can activate Tech panels, and the magnet suit that lets Robin or the Joker climb up magnetic walls and activate special switches. These suits can be changed into at any time after unlock.
2015 - LEGO Jurassic World
The game follows the storylines from the Jurassic Park films: Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. However, the developers modified the storylines to fit the events into five levels per film. Notable scenes from each film have been recreated in the game.
. The game features more than 100 unlockable characters to play as, including more than 20 dinosaur species, such as Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus. Mr. DNA, a cartoon character featured in the 1993 Jurassic Park film, is also an unlockable character. Throughout the game, Mr. DNA provides the player with hints; and with dinosaur trivia, as he did in the Super Nintendo version of Jurassic Park.
The player can also create new human characters by travelling to either the Jurassic Park Visitor Center or the Jurassic World Innovation Center. Hybrid dinosaurs can also be created from various parts of dinosaurs that can be unlocked during the game's progression. The game features 20 levels, with five levels based on each film. The levels are divided into four chapters. Enemies include Compsognathus, Dilophosaurus and Velociraptor.
