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
- It shouldn't even count as a game; it's just an electronic coloring book.
- There are no mini-games, and there is no animation.
- 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.
- 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.
- It has no options to save any images you already colored.
- The SNES was already out, so releasing it for the NES was a baffling choice.
When James Rolfe and Mike Matei played this in James and Mike Mondays, Mike flat-out said that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was more of a game than this.
