This D-mod is a checkers clone.

Map and graphics: There is no load or title screen, just the play screen. The background, with the logo of Dink Smallwood, is moving which is annoying since it distracts the attention. The checkers are made nicely.

Music: There is no music, but I do not think that is necessary anyway with a board game.

Good: It still amazes me to see what can be done with the Dink engine.

Not so good: Double-jumping is not available. The author states that in the readme.txt, but I still think it is a shame, because that is an essential part of checkers.

Remark: It is best to read the readme.txt before playing, since the file explains how to play.
When I read the other review, I thought it was actually a game of chess, but it is not. Although checkers is nice too, I prefer chess.

Overall: Nice little game.

Fit for: If you like checkers, it is worth the download.
