The player controls Alan Grant, and the objective of the game is to complete certain tasks in order to escape Jurassic Park. Such as clearing a raptor nest of eggs, and turning the generator on in a utility shed allowing for opening and closing of gates and the like. Communication ports set up around the island allow characters in the game to communicate advice to the player, though some advice is deliberately malicious. Jurassic Park supports the SNES Mouse when playing first-person sequences and operating computer terminals.
