Scan Command: Jurassic Park (also known as Jurassic Park: Scan Command) is a 2001 fighting/strategy video game developed and published by Knowledge Adventure for Microsoft Windows. The game is based on the 2001 film, Jurassic Park III, and was considered unique for its use of a barcode scanner accessory known as the Scan Command. Scan Command: Jurassic Park involves an evil scientist, Dr. Irene Corts, who has taken over the Jurassic Park theme park with her army of genetically altered dinosaurs and plans to use them to achieve world domination. The players goal is to stop Corts. The player must also locate five children and help them escape Jurassic Park. The game features eight playable creatures from the first three Jurassic Park films. The player starts out as a Velociraptor, while other dinosaurs such as Spinosaurus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex become unlocked as more levels are completed. The game features seven levels, including caves, jungles, swamps, dilapidated InGen laboratories, and steel pyramids. The final level is set inside an active volcano. The game included a portable, battery-powered barcode scanner, known as the Scan Command, capable of storing up to 25 scans at a time. Barcodes are scanned by the player to obtain "genetic codes". Barcodes are loaded into the game by connecting the scanner to a computers serial port. When a barcode is loaded, it is transformed into dinosaur DNA as part of a puzzle minigame. Once completed, the "genetic codes" can then be used to enhance the players defenses and attacks, with customizable traits such as agility and strength. Players can also trade "genetic codes". After reaching a certain power level, the players creature can fight in real-time battles against other creatures controlled by evil scientists at InGen. In addition to solving puzzles, the player must also defeat enemy dinosaurs to advance to each new level.
