Nintendo Adventure Book 7 - Dinosaur Dilemma

Nintendo Adventure Book 7 - Dinosaur Dilemma




Dinosaur Dilemma was written by Clyde Bosco and was the seventh of twelve in the Nintendo Adventure Books series - first published on 5th November, 1992 by Mammoth Books in the U.K and by Simon & Schuster, a division of Pocket Books in the U.S.


This was the last time that a Nintendo Adventure Book would be written by someone other than Matt Wayne, who did the next four.


This book was based on the Super Mario World SNES Game which had been released just before this got published.


Plot Synopsis

Flying Duo Battles Koopa Clan

Mario and his new dinosaur friend, Yoshi, fly across Dinosaur Land to save Yoshi's homeland from the dreaded Koopa Clan. Bowser's armies have invaded the peaceful kingdom of the dinosaurs, threatening Yoshi's friends and family with total extinction.

As in all Nintendo Adventure Books, you control the action. Only you can make the choices that allow Mario and Yoshi to overcome the perils they face on the rocky shores of Dinosaur Land. Help them crack codes, solve puzzles, conquer mazes, and subdue enemies. Together, you must outwit a whole new collection of Koopa creeps-or go down in final defeat!
