"I applaud the decision to match the dinosaurs to their bones rather than simply matching identical pictures as is more typical of games like this. I think it helps develop a more nuanced form of pattern recognition, and imparts a greater educational quality to the game, encouraging players to think about how bodies relate to the skeletons underneath... I can comfortably give this game my Dino Dad Stomp of Approval!" - Dino Dad Reviews,
