A Dinosaur's Tale is a 1994 platformer for the Sega Mega Drive, developed by Funcom and published Hi-Tech Entertainment, tying into the 1993 movie We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story.

The game was only released in the US, and is unrelated to the Super NES and Game Boy games based on the film (which are actually named after the film).


You play as either of the two child protagonists, Louie or Cecilia, as they complete various predefined tasks in side-scrolling platforming levels. B jumps.
