Dino Hunt is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Admiral Jota. It was a participant in the DinoComp event.

In this small game, you play as a kid in a playground. You want to play dinosaurs in the sand box, but you forgot to bring your toy dinosaurs with you.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
