The Second part of Jveenhof and Wolfblitz’s trilogy. Dink and Link are off to find more jewels – the next 3 gems of life.

Graphics: new stuff here. There’s the disguised Dink, some new enemies, and some modified people sprites. Some new items, such as the canon – but that’s as far as I got. Canon just froze – even with Ted’s fix installed. Considering the other factors of the game I couldn’t be bothered continuing.

Map: Average, with depth problems yet again.

Sounds: if there were new ones, I didn’t notice them.

Bugs: Yep these were there. Froze while solving the first puzzle. Then the canon bug which still was there. Two times got this, so gave up.

Specials: The face appearing stuff was good. New magic wasn’t that good. Had a nice bug you could exploit in battling the tough boncas. I got my strength up to 200 odd by pressing SHIFT very quickly.

The puzzles weren’t really puzzles. Too obvious.

Overall 6 out 10.
