A parent could get a mountain of coloring books (with mazes and puzzles!) and a big box color set of 64 crayons (with sharpener!) for far less than the price of an NES cartridge.

I bought this game because it is very rare and I think a pretty cool idea. This is the only game I can think of that is made like this. It may be crappy, but at least it's a crappy original idea.

Color a Dinosaur is – or rather, was – a $50 coloring book for your NES, with less color options than a Crayola 50-Pack. It’s what critics and gamers would refer to today as “shovelware,” games that are made hastily and cheaply for a quick profit, and purchased by parents too uneducated to know what kind of games their child actually desires. The cover reads from ages 3 to 6, but I guarantee no toddler wants to color in a game when they could be sucking up foes a la Kirby, blowing fools away a la Mega Man or Contra, or squashing Goomba’s heads a la “The Sopranos” – er, Mario. It’s worth a download for chuckling purposes only.
