Dino Crisis Dungeon in Chaos (ディノ クライシス Dungeon in Chaos) is a first-person shooter mobile game published by the now-defunct Mobile Capcom in 2003. The game was made for DoCoMo 505i and 505is phones.
An unnamed country has been experimenting with Third Energy at a military research facility. An accident has occurred, leading to an unexplained loss of radio contact with the facility. The country's government orders an Army special forces team to investigate. The soldiers find the facility infested by dinosaurs, but stay at the facility to complete their mission, which includes shutting down the Third Energy reactor.[excerpt 1][excerpt 2]
The player objective is to find and shut down the Third Energy reactor. The environment is a 3D maze which changes shape in each game, meaning the player will not figure out the location from earlier playthroughs. The player goes through a series of rooms and corridors populated by dinosaurs, and must kill them to advance or be killed. The standard weapon is a handgun, though special attacks can be performed to cause more damage. These attacks consume the Energy Bar, however, so must be used sparingly.
Dungeon In Chaos entered production in 2003 under the title, Dino Crisis. It was made specifically for the 505i mobile phone, and was announced in May 2003, ahead of the release of Dino Crisis 3. The game was featured at Tokyo Game Show 2003 with a Winter release date.
