Age of the Dinosaurs is a lightweight desktop enhancement application whose purpose is to help you change the looks of your desktop with the aid of an animated wallpaper. The wallpaper allows you to go back in time when the earth was ruled by dinosaurs.

You can find the utility running quietly in the system tray. You can gain access to its configuration settings by right-clicking on the tray icon, more specifically you are allowed to open up the configuration panel, manage desktop icons, alter the picture’s position on the screen, and download more wallpapers.

Age of the Dinosaurs shows a natural environment where different specifies of dinosaurs are wandering. In addition, music is played in the background in order to make the whole experience real.

The application offers you the possibility to mute the sound or adjust the volume very quickly thanks to the built-in slider, set up execution priorities (normal, low, high), change the position of the image to fil, stretch, or fit mode, run it at Windows startup, as well as access a webpage via your web browser from where you can grab more animated wallpapers.

Aside from the animated wallpaper, the program comes packed with a screensaver (SCR file format) which can be activated on the fly. The screensaver shows the same animated scene with dinosaurs as the wallpaper.

Tests have pointed out that Age of the Dinosaurs carries out a task quickly and delivers excellent output quality. However, it eats up a lot of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.

To sum things up, Age of the Dinosaurs provides a straightforward software solution for helping you animate the looks of your desktop with an interactive wallpaper. It can be configured by less experienced users and professionals alike.
