Color a Dinosaur Color a Dinosaur is an electronic coloring book video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. In the game itself, the player colors various non-threatening 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. The basic colors are either brightly-colored patterns or limited variations on pink or red; giving the game a childish and/or feminine feel to it. However, an extra set of patterns can be reached by pressing the Select button. Certain patterns become flashy and psychedelic once this button is pressed. Like all video games, a warning is printed in the instruction manual against possible epsisodes of seizures caused by certain flashing lights. [source:wikipedia]
