Color a Dinosaur is a coloring "video game" made for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1993. Tommy Tallarico was responsible for the music in the game.

Why It Sucks

  1. It shouldn't even count as a game; it's just a coloring book on a television screen.
  2. There are no mini-games, and there is no animation.
  3. Very little content is in the game. There are only 16 images to color and the only tool available for coloring is the paint bucket to fill in a section with a certain color. You can't even create a custom color palette to color with, you can only chose from a very limited selection of color palettes.
  4. It can take up to a whole minute for the game to fully color the area of the image you selected; and you cannot do a thing with the game while it does this, so you must wait until it is done painting in the image.
  5. It has no options to save any images you already colored.
  6. The SNES was already out, so WHY make this game for the NES?


When James and Mike played this in James and Mike Mondays, Mike flat-out said that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was more of a game than this.

This game was also mentioned by James while reviewing the LJN Video Art. He thought it was the Worst Coloring Game ever, but he then said LJN Video Art made Color a Dinosaur look amazing.
