Jarvis has returned, with some dang bubble bobble music.

Story: As in part one, you play the little squirt Jarvis, who tries to save a beautiful (or not so beautiful ) girl from the Eagle Tower. The story is alot of fun, with lots and lots of humour.
9.0.

Map: The map is first been set on a snowy land. Then you are in a tower, that could have been improved. There are not lots of sprites there. Then there's a Darkland that is very well made.

So, there are enough sprites in the snowy land, and in the Darkland, but Sabre should have put more effort to the Eagle Tower.
7.0.

Graphics: Jarvis is cool, the troll is cool and the little guy when you enter the Eagle Tower looks fun. The rest is same old RTSoft's graphics and Mike Snyder's tiles.
8.0.

Gameplay: There is not so much wandering around. You basically just walk a straight path to kill everything in your way, so you can level up for the last boss. This could seem boring, but thank god, there are lots of VERY FUNNY little cut-scenes, which can make your day. The enemies are little too easy, but that's just fine.
Also, the clone attack with last boss (ain't gonna tell who that is) is cool.
8.5.

Good: Story is fine, graphics are cool, gameplay's a bit easy sometimes is fine, and the map is good (EXPECT from the inside of the tower) AND the humour is best ever.

Bad: SabreTrout keeps reminding other people with putting sprites to the map, and follows his own order... USUALLY. But in this D-Mod SabreTrout should have put more effort INSIDE the tower. There were not enough things to keep you intrested in the map. Actually there were only things that NEEDED to be there.

The gameplay's a bit easy sometimes, aswell, and you could have put a little more wandering there, but that's not really needed, though, since this is so small romp.

Overall: 8.9.
I think this is the best Knight's Tale. The D-Mod is fun, and good.

Fit for: Anyone who looks for a small, full of killing, and VERRRRRRY humorous D-Mod.

A very short romp with some humour and a few bugs.

Jarvis is back, and with attitude. The humour is the best thing in this DMOD, although at times I found it got tedious (i.e. the begining thing with music... I just wanted that to end)

Graphics: some borrowed graphics of the main hero and a couple of other characters, but I find these a little strange and too small. The tiny size works for Jarvis, but the wizard and the troll didn't click. There was also some graphics for the Stone giant with a magic attack, but I couldn't find where these creatures were in the DMOD. I even tried playing again just to see if I missed some big secret, but couldn't find anything. Also there are graphics for the boncas, not sure why, as they didn't appear to be any different from the original and just seemed to increase the DMOD size.

Music: Average

Map: Average. Some hardness bugs. It's layout did lead you to believe there were other areas to explore, but the truth was there weren't.

Bugs: some minor hardness issues with the fire on the boulders, but the most annoying was Jarvis turning into Dink when pushing if you start from a load game. Also the battle with the slayer could be fought again and again which was annoying. And I guess you could end up with an inventory full of swords. There seems to be a number of scripts not used... maybe this was areas the author was going to develop... and well, only he knows. The other thing that bugged me was the position of the Author text... right on the border of the status bar and the screen, sometimes being a white colour made it hard to see with the snow background.

Gameplay: Extremely easy, generally, and not very exciting. Run around kill some easy monsters and find the end boss.

Sounds: Nothing new here as far as I could tell.

Special: Humour. The hero has attitude. The sort that makes for a quick game.

Overall: 7.8 out of 10

Making Topics off-track faster then you can say it 
Plot: You have to save The Beutiful "Princess" of the tower [in my words] who you have to rescue {Spoiler} Or Leave {Spoiler} and go back Home and think of your next adventure.
Music: It starts out with awesome Bubble Bobble music " Which I Liked " Then he fires his man after he fixes it with a song which is Decent
Time: It took about 10 to 15 minutes so it was decent in timeing, but I would of Liked it to be longer like more choices or something
Personal: To me it was atleast Good for a few minutes, but I might not play it again for a while unless I can't find something else to play " Which I will "
Sword's Rating: When I showed it to him he thought of it as good, but with some flaws " Which he won't tell me "
Bugs: I didn't encounter any of them if there are any so it was good
Recommdation: I think it should be for those who would like to have a good adventure for a while unless you don't like people other then Dink, if you don't mabye it can be for a collection

A knight's tale 2 is a lot worse than a knight's tale 1. There's some funny stuff in this one too, but it tries too much, turning the humour that plays the main role in the dmod from amusing to stupid.

I especially disliked the ending.

I am glad sabretroute made a sequal. The game was a little to easy exept for the ending with the sabretroute clones. You made it clear what you had to do. I don't think there were many errors and the diologe was good. overall I give it a 9.1

A Knight's Tale 2 by SabreTrout

The Good: Jarvis is back again, and has brought his attitude with him. Had me laughing out loud in parts. Unlke Dink Smallwood, I think Jarvis is more controllable; maybe because of his size. Plenty of monsters to kill, and when it went abrupty from one scene to another..Jarvis and I thought alike. Some nice scenery and plenty of monsters to kill.

The Bad: OK, not enough save bots, and still money that never gets spent. again a few small hardness errors, but nothing that slowed us down, although some didn't seem to make any sense, never mind the *surprise at the end* (sabretrout clones..eeek)

Overall: A good romp, the 2nd in a triology.

Storyline: Jarvis the knight is back and this time he needs to rescue a damsel in distress.

Map and graphics: The map is small, but done nicely.

Music: Good.

Good: This is an original D-mod since the gameplay is different, the end-boss is different and the ending is different then what you expect. You can not talk to anything, but all of the story is told in cutscenes and that is not annoying at all but in fact very nice. The end-boss you have to hear for yourself (or actually read his lines!); saying anything about that would spoil the surprise. And the ending is fun too!

Not so good: Some graphics do not look very good, such as the arch near the savebot. The picture is cut halfway and it does not look very nice, although the graphics are used in a new way, which is always nice to see. Jarvis walks a bit odd en slow in the first part of the game, but that is due to the amount of sprites on one screen.

Overall: A D-mod that is original in several ways.

Fit for: Anyone, but especially if you have played the first part.

Story and Plot: Jarvis is called upon again to save a beautiful princess in the ancient eagle tower.

Graphics: Great use of original gfx. (fireplace, archways) Plus a new one: Troll.

Music: Fine, never listened that closely.

Good: Humor is spot on. Great intro. Great ending. When you get the sword the dialouge with the troll is hilarious. Ending boss is fun to play, only challenging part though. Plenty of save points is a plus.

Bad: Nothing.

Overall: An all-around exceptional romp, worth anyone's time.

A Knight's Tale 2
by: SabreTrout

A nice very short romp about a knight.

Good Stuff

The humor. The lack of a story is made up for the humor. This is indeed the funniest d-mod I had ever played. Its is short, beatable, and very easy which I like.

Bad Stuff

It was too short and I think the author should have made it longer.

Overall = 9.0

Extremely funny dm-mod fit for a good laugh

STORY : The story is the main strenght of the game. Jarvis must rescue a poor woman trapped in the Eagle Tower. This DMOD is one of the most humorous I have ever seen. When I played it, I thought I would die laughing. There are lots of cutscenes. The ending was fun.

MUSIC : Good.

Gameplay : All you have to do is walking and fighting, I'd say... You cannot talk to anyone, Jarvis only talks while a cutscene is playing.

Difficulty : Easy.

Graphics : From Warcraft 2.

Bugs : Only one hardness error, and I doubt you will find it.

OVERALL : 8,9. Download thid DMOD and die laughing.

Knight's Tale 2. The first (and great) dmod I played after my loooong break from Dinking. Let's begin the review.

(Nearly nonexistant) story: Jarvis the Knight goes to the Eagle Tower to rescue the beautiful (hmm...) Eleanor.

Good:
*Humor is the key here (lots of it)
*Easy, I didn't die once. (but not too easy)
*A dmod couldn't be more linear than this. You always know what you should do to continue.
*Really original use of the Dink graphics, and some new graphics too.(although taken from Warcraft III)
*Short
*NO BUGS!! Hooray!

Bad:
*Well, nothing.

Overall: Great dmod that doesn't take too long to beat and doesn't get boring. 9.0

A Knight's Tale 2 has everything what a good romp dmod needs: humour, it's small, it's easy, it's realxing to play, and most of all: it's fun to play.
Jarvis the Knight has personality. Hell yeah he does. Jarvis' big mouth often results in extremely funny situations. This dmod is NOT serious. The story is near non-existant, no new graphics (besides some Wartcraft II graphics) no new sounds, music, anything. Small download. Worth your time, worth your HD space and certainly worth a laugh.
Good job Sabre

GRAPHICS 7: Nothing special here. Warcraft II sprites are nice. Some cool details, good use of standard Dink graphics.
SOUND 7: Some annoying music, some very nice music. Beginning was hillarious, with the Bubble n' Bobble music. I laughed my panties off.
GAMEPLAY 7,5: Nice gameplay indeed. No puzzles, no quests, 100% linear, and easy. Exactly how a romp needs to be. The only 'quest' part was the part you need a better sword to advance. End boss was fun. Anyway nice job
LASTING APPEAL 6,5: Very small, this game. Could be at least somewhat bigger, I finished this one under 10 minutes, without dying once. No real replay value, but it doesn't try to be anyway. heh.
OVERALL: 7.3

Not a very good game or anything, but it's fun, and came at the right time. People are starving for dmods, and this one passes the test.
Fit for people who like a short, and most of all humerous dmod!
