Color a Dinosaur is an electronic coloring book video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Summary[edit]

Player can select from a variety of colors.

In the game, the player colors various dinosaurs by using the provided dinosaur images and palettes. Players can either color using the free form mode or in the automatic mode where they only have to choose a color.[5] The basic colors are either brightly colored patterns or limited variations on pink or red; giving the game a childish feel to it. An extra set of patterns can be reached by pressing the Select button.[6]

This game is intended for younger audiences as there are no sophisticated features such as animation, minigames, etc. Tommy Tallarico created the music for this game.[7]

Adding insult to game reviews, the game's overly simplistic nature, lack of a save feature and bad visuals made the game a frequent subject of criticism among the gaming community.
