It is the same old extincted game! but each goal you score will return the clock 50 million years backward to recombine the continents into Pangaea. Yes, you have to score only 4 goals to get back the extincted animals and plants. And be careful, each goal your network opponent scores in your goal will kick you you 50 million years forward!
