Does anyone here like puzzles? If so, then this is a game for you. While it may not be Lemmings, Dinolympics can make a name for itself. This game gives you a chance to think on the road. I give this game a better rating on the Lynx than if it was on the Genesis or SNES for one reason--Portability. This is the type game that you want when you are waiting through a long plane flight or you are taking a boring car ride. It pulls you in and gets you addicted. Because of the Lynx's portability, I like the game that much more. The sound was weak, but up to par for most Lynx games. Graphics were very clear and easy to see. Two thumbs up!

This card is just pure fun to play on the Lynx. Dinolympics is a mind game very much like Lemmings and Humans. The graphics give a very clear picture and are well detailed. The music is cute and fits with the game very nicely. Not a whole lot to gameplay, but what's there reacts to the control pad very well. I kept on playing this game continuously and believe me there are plenty of levels to keep you busy. Overall this is one of the best games for the Lynx.

An interesting game. In a way you could call it a Lemmings spin off, but I personally think it has it's own uniqueness about it. I'm sure I would grow bored of this title if it was on a console, but with it being on a portable, I can play it in the car or other places to pass the time. The graphics were very sharp and clean and the control was right on the money. The sound left a little to be desired, but it's your average fare.

I thought Dinolympics was kind of like a reverse Lemmings. Interesting concept. I think I like Lemmings better, but this title could still be amusing. Tantalizing.
