Daniel, there are clowns. 
Here’s my review:

Graphics: The cloud tiles look suspiciously like one of the Windows default backgrounds. So, there really isn’t anything new; not that there's anything wrong with that. Oh yeah, there’s also that thing with the doors not fitting in their doorways, but that’s just a minor flaw.

Music: Average. Some are great; others, annoying. Most fit the atmosphere… though I did have a hard time getting used to Blanka’s theme in the caves.

Challenge: I found this d-mod to be surprisingly well balanced… for me, at least. I actually had to use some elixirs to get through (hint, hint). Even hard-core, veteran dinkers will find this one to be challenge. Others may find that this is just one of those games where you have to cheat.

Story: People are disappearing and it’s up to Dink to save them; a normal d-mod plot… or so it seems! What appears to be your average d-mod is really a hilarious romp in disguise! In my opinion, this is the probably one of the funniest d-mods out there. It’s like Stone of Balance without the painful number of sex jokes.

Overall: Very well done, especially for a first d-mod. It’s short and not very big, it took about an hour to finish. The ending is classic and has almost Ed the SCV flavor to it. So, if you’re looking for a d-mod that’s funny as well as challenging, I highly recommend you download this.
