Rupert and Regina, like most prehistoric folks, are at the mercy of the elements, often ending up as lunch for rampaging carnosaurs. During one particularly frenzied chase, the couple hides behind a huge rock that possesses special powers, frightening a pursuing dinosaur and giving Rupert and Regina a sense of security. So, they decide to stay near their Magic Rock and make a home for themselves, and they need your help to build their village.
Your Village Evolves
The game offers four main resources–rock, food, trees, and fur–plus three other resources that require a refinery: stone, lumber, and woven fur. You need to develop your village with its shops and resource buildings, as well as gradually upgrade your Magic Rock, to access some of the top-level production items.
Build a pre-historic village in which you harvest resources, build homes, and construct cool shops. Assign your villagers to work different jobs and use the seven different resources to craft tools, clothes, candy, and more. Upgrade the Magic Rock at the center of your town to unlock beautiful buildings and gorgeous decorations. Follow the quests through the tutorial, then pick and choose as several quests open at once. Arrange your buildings, farms, and decorations however you wish.
