Dinkgon Warrior

The life of an NPC can be stressful. From the COTPATD project.
Description
A Dink Smallwood adaptation of the NES Classic Dragon Warrior (aka Dragon Quest). Features a turn-based battle system that uses the same formulas as the original game. Grind to win, just like in the old days!

Because of the screen limitation of the Silent Protagonist Contest, only part of Dragon Warrior is adapted. The game now ends when you rescue the princess.

This is one of my favorite Dmods of the past few years. Not that there are a whole many to choose from mind you but the point is that I found it to be highly enjoyable. Maybe that's just me and my fondness of turn-based combat systems. Cocomonkey probably wanted to make this particular type of game for nostalgia purposes and that really shines. You can really feel like you're playing some classic jrpg when you load this up and start killing things. It might be a bit grindy for the average player, which takes away from it's replayability value a bit. The game has a nice overworld feeling to it by using smaller sized sprites to its advantage. The story is well-written and comical(as is anything Cocomonkey writes) and despite the short length due the contest restraints it still feels very rewarding when you finish it. The map looks nice and is very well detailed thanks to the efforts of MsDink. Overall I think this is a great dmod and I'd recommend it to anyone.
