You can use the ghost images of the dinosaurs to help place them for your defense strategy. Left click on the eggs to move them to the desired location and let go when ready.

The Apatosaurs will start firing automatically once the wave of meteors starts, but you will need to left click, hold down the button, and move your mouse to direct their targeting where needed.

You not only need to make sure as few meteors as possible hit your dinosaurs, but also destroy any meteors that may impact near them. You can see the explosive range for the small meteors in the image below…the bigger the meteor the bigger the explosion will be on impact.

As you survive each wave of meteors, you will have the opportunity to win defense upgrades and additional dinosaur defenders of various types. The different dinosaur types will each have their own type of defense capabilities to help you survive as long as possible.

Note: Upgrades for a dinosaur defense type will apply to all the dinosaurs of that type currently active.
