Guide to Dino Zoo* for iPhone: Tips, tricks, cheats, hints and strategies

Have you ever wanted to have your own little version of Jurassic Park, where you have a park loaded with dinosaurs that you can feed and breed, for tourists to see, on your very own island? If you said yes to the above, you just might like Dino Zoo* for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s part farming game, and part zoo game, but it comes with its own twists and, of course, its own set of animals for you to get. Read on for some tips and tricks for Dino Zoo!

There are a number of uses for the iPhone time cheat in this game. For example, if you tap one of the rocks or trees, and tap “remove”, but you don’t want to wait an hour or several for it to finish up, then you can do the time cheat to make it happen quicker. If you are breeding two dinosaurs, or crossbreeding them, and you don’t want to wait for them to finish up, you can do the same thing again. Or even if you want to just be able to collect from the dinosaur nests a little bit more quickly, you can use the iPhone time cheat to make it happen.

The way to do the iPhone time cheat is to do this. Go to your phone’s settings, and then go to the date and time settings, and set the time ahead. The time that you should set it ahead by depends on what you are trying to do – it can be about 10 minutes for most dinosaur pins, or for farming new sources of food, all the way to several hours for clearing out trees.

When you set it ahead for several hours or a similar time frame to that, though, don’t collect from ANY dinosaurs until you are finished doing your main task (this is usually true for removing rocks and trees and crossbreeding). If you do, then the timer will restart for the dinosaurs to be ready to collect from, and once you reset the time back to normal, the game will also take back the amount of time that you originally added. So if you added 8 hours, then collected from a 5-minute dinosaur, then set the time back to normal, it will take 8 hours and 5 minutes to collect from them again.
