Author's comments and explanations:
This is a movie for the ever-popular game Color a Dinosaur. Unlike adelikat's movie, mine colors the Stegosaur, so I believe our movies belong in seperate categories.

Goals & Settings

  • FCEU 0.98.16
  • Attempts to Color the Stegosaur in the fastest time possible
  • Does not complete side quests
  • Uses death as a shortcut
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Eventually belong in a museum
  • Someone uses the final product as an avatar

Special Mentions

JXQ unfortunately could not do one of the other quests of this game and submit. He wanted to make one, but due to extenuating circumstances he can no longer walk.

Cardboard was too busy throwing sheep around to attempt one of the quests. But he sends his love in the form of a Dracula bashing.

Upthorn helped motivate me by telling me "The internet is like a big friendly library. If I want to eat a book I can eat a book."


The reason I chose to TAS this game is because it gives me lots of freedom. It allows one to know what would happen if the laws of nature governing these creatures' appearance were suddenly handed over to myself. The other reason is because DK64_MASTER needed a new pair of shoes.

I hope that by creating this TAS I can spur some competition on this game and hopefully bring it up to the level of perfection of Rockin' Kats, B.O.B., or Combatribes.

NesVideoAgent: Hi! I am a robot. I took a few screenshots of this movie and placed them here. Here goes! Feel free to clean up the list.

Bisqwit: Thanks for contributing something for future reference. Now rejecting this submission in a non-humorous manner.
