Cadillacs and Dinosaurs: The Second Cataclysm is a Sega Mega-CD (and DOS) game developed and published by Rocket Science Games in 1994. It is based on the comic book series Xenozoic Tales, and the TV show of the same name. It is not to be confused with the arcade beat-'em-up, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs by Capcom. The Mega-CD game was only released in North America and Brazil.

Set in the "Xenozoic Age", which occurs after a disaster in the year 2020 causing all of Earth's previous inhabitants to share the planet at once. In order to maintain balance disrupted by a mutant-like race known as the Girth, you set out in a 1953 Cadillac with machine guns.

It is an on-the-rails FMV game, where you spend most of the time avoiding obstacles and shooting enemies.
