Ahhh.... Dink Smallwood, the classic RPG game made by the smart people down at RTSOFT. Well what can I say, I think that Dink Smallwood has to be the worst game in the world. No, I don't. I think that Dink Smallwood is one of my favourite RPG style games I have ever seen. It is beautiful. I got Dink long ago, and when i did, it was the best thing that ever happened to me (going over the top). The engine itself is beautiful, not just because of the possibilities for making Dink MODules, but the way it has been programmed. This game is a definate MUST DOWNLOAD, even if you are on a 56K, it is still a MUST DOWNLOAD. It is what I wanted, and here's what I think about it...

Strengths
---------

The game, the engine, what more can i say. The graphics are great. There are lots of them, they are 3D and they are VERY well detailed. The games engine is a great one too. Maybe not the sort of engine you would see in this millenium, but a great one in itself. The game is so great that it has been a hit on the internet and around the world since '98. What more can you ask for. If you like RPG's or Final Fantasy. Then this is your game. If you havn't played Dink Smallwood, then take my advice now, and download it! The storyline is great, the map is big, but the way the storyline is built up, you will always visit the same places, again and again. This makes the gameplay huge! Dink Smallwood gives any serious gamer hours maybe days of gaming experience, and endless fun + laughter. The storyline gets strangely twisted near the end of Dink Smallwood, but ina funny way, to make the game stay interesting. (Seth the designer being the end boss) If you like games that you can just go around and do anything, rampage the whole world, kill everybody, then this is the game for you. The game never ends, as there is no ending, you kill Seth, but then you can just backtrack and go around and do anything you want. Maybe unlock secret areas not previously known about. It's obvious, I am going to give it full marks, but purely because of the massive, monstrous list of Strengths. As for weaknesses, what could possibly be wrong with it? The possiblity given from this game of making Modifications / Addons for Dink Smallwood is endless, and can never really be stopped, all thanks to Dink Smallwoods Engine. Giving you the creativity you want. I ask you to think of a game that reaches Dink Smallwoods Standards.

Weaknesses
----------

Hmmm.... let's see. Maybe the variation of enemies could have been improved on, and the engine is pretty buggy. I also think a difficulty selection screen should have been put into Dink Smallwood. However, other than that, what can I say!

Overall
-------

Classic RPG game like Final Fantasy, that deserves to be downloaded by everyone on the internet. A great game, a must download, and that is that.

Total 9.9
Grade A*
