Quest Dinosaurs in Megapolis

Build and Upgrade:


Dinosaurs in Megapolis is a Timed Quest in which the player has 192 hours to build and upgrade a total of 5 areas with assets leading up to Scientific Base researching quantum physics. It was released as part of an update on 05.28.2013.[1]

"Dinosaurs in the City!"

"The remains of gigantic dinosaurs have been discovered not far from Megapolis. Scientists are saying that this find will allow us to learn a lot about these ancient reptiles!"

"The residents beg the mayor: Conduct paleontological excavations"

"We need to conduct paleontological excavations and build a Scientific Research Facility dedicated to dinosaurs, as well as an Incubator. Study the ancient inhabitants of the earth!"

"Dinosaur fossils have been discovered not far from Megapolis. It’s time to study these ancient monsters!"


Depending on how one plays the game, this quest may require approximately 440 Megabucks sm total (for 410 assets) and 250,000 Coin sm (for building and foundation purchases) to complete fully.

Stage 1 - Archaeological Excavations

Ancient dinosaur fossils have been discovered not far from Megapolis. This is truly fortunate, because finds like these are extremely rare.


description If you conduct paleontological excavations and study dinosaur bones, you’ll be able to figure out what the dinosaurs looked like!

Stage 3 - History Comes to Life

You need to conduct research if you want to determine exactly what the dinosaurs looked like. If we try hard enough, we'll be able to extract their DNA and study it carefully!


Conduct research on pieces of amber containing ancient insects. This project will allow our scientists to determine the genetic makeup of the dinosaurs.
