Dinkers is a multiplayer* chess game for the dink engine. If you don't know the rules of chess, you basically move your peices around a checkered board and try to jump over the other players peices. RedInk managed to write a engine based on script that do this!

Strengths: powerful use of the engine with limitless possibilities. Nice checkers interface that allows the users to play a nice quite game.

weaknesses: there is no double jumping, but I can see why it wasn't scripted in. There is no sound, but it be hard to find some soft conforting midi to go with this game. There are some slight glitches in the game, but I belive this is cause by the tweaks RedInk ahd to use in order to get the dink engine to function right with this game.

Overall: Great add-on, if dink were multiplayer over lan it would be better. If this engine can be improved upon, I think that RedInk should work on it, but in it's surrent state, it's still very amusing and nice to see what limits we can push the dink engine to.

*mulitplayer limited to one computer, to users have to use the same keyboard/mouse to play the game, but there is no way to make Dink multiplayer over the net without a major headache to both the user and author.
