This is quite original a dmod. It isn't the usual rpg action adventure game, but.. a sea trading game!

It's not much though. The only thing you do is buy some items, go to another town (which is basically just more clicking) and sell the items for more money so you make profit.
All you do is clicking. No thinking, no fighting, no interaction, nothing. TheProphet claims there are pirates in the game too, but I haven't seen them.

All you see is basically a (badly drawn) map, some very pixelated items, and a Go and Quit button. Go makes you go to other towns (though you actually don't see any movement or animations) and quit makes you.. uhh.. quit. Yeah. That's it. This is boring. Very boring.
You lose when you have less than 100 gold. The graphics of the screen you get to see when you lose are ok, but could have been a lot better. It's clearly been color-reduced by Paint, which is a bad idea.
The music was okay, some very nice midis. It can't help the game though, since you quit the game before you even finished listening to the soundtracks.

Overall, this is a bad game. It simply isn't any fun.

GRAPHICS 4: Makes you all sleepy. Could have been a lot better, if more effort was put into this.
SOUND 7: Some nice midis, no new sounds. Nothing spectaculair.
GAMEPLAY 3: Nearly nonexistant. Some points for originality, but it just bores the hell out of you.
LASTING APPEAL 1: For about 3 minutes at most.
OVERALL: 4.0

Okay music and original concept can't save this. Download it to check it out, but I don't think you'll spend more time playing this than downloading it.
