Storyline: An evil wizard wants to rule the world, but knows that Dink will never bow for him.

Map and graphics: A nice title screen. The map is complex and decorated very nicely. Sometimes there are so many details, that it is a relief to be on a spot that has not that many details. There are many new graphics, which are real good. There are all kind of science fiction graphics, such as spaceships, teleporters and new backgrounds. New are also the pyramids and bridges, and some item icons.

Music: Nice music indeed.

Good: The intro scene is nicely done. The first part of the D-mod is well worked out. The transparent roof on top of the poles is very nice; you can walk underneath it and it will give nice shadows. The text that is said while talking to the spaceships is right out of Space Quest: that brings back some memories!

Not so good: The wizard in the house does not talk. I guess he is part of the storyline, since I could not do some other things. When entering a house I was warped to a screen with trees with no exit. Some parts of the map are not finished, although they are accessible. Even though the author could not finish the game, a few changes to that part would have been nice.

Overall: A good D-mod with a sort of ending.

Fit for: If you love science fiction, you will love this D-mod too.

This was my very first d-mod to play aside from Mystery Island. Very blanced d-mod, some-what an indirect humor at the begginning lol.

Good

A revolutionary d-mod of its time, with 'appalling' graphics and a plot/story of a sort. I really really wanted to see the ending of this too bad we cant . Music was good and I liked the theme of an 'evil dink twin' type... thing.

Bad
***
Alot of running around. Doing stuff that kinda threw me off from what is supposed to be done. Minor hardness errors such as a part of the bridge I got stuck at and i got to walk on the water and couldnt get back on the bridge. it kinda sucked cause i forgot to save and i had to start all over >_<.

Great d-mod overall. i wished the author finished it. really.

Dink's doppleganger is definitely one of the best dmods around. The problem with it is that it's unfinished, and more than that, that it ends very suddenly and you achieve merely anything at the end. There's nothing exactly bad in Dink's doppleganger, yet in some points there's nothing exactly good in it either.

An interestingly different sci/fi twist made this DMOD enjoyable. Although i was disappointed with the end or the incomplete end. Empty space with nothing more than one piece of gold and a house that takes you to a small forest where you become stuck. The parts of the game that were complete were fun but the lack of magic and creature fighting was a negative. I'm sure this DMOD would have revieved a higher score if the author had completed part three.

Yes, this was my first ever DMOD download. And it's got a big map, but unfinished story.

Humour was a bit lacking, and some of the things I had to do drove me mad. Especially the spaceship and the battery thingo.

Graphics: Some new stuff with spaceships and things. Pretty good.

Map: Solid work here. Nothing to complain about in terms of hardness errors.

Gameplay: Some of the things you had to do drove me nuts. Water, jugs... volcanoes. Ah... I think this DMOD probably shaped my unconscious as I seem to have followed a similar path in my own DMODs.

Overall: One of the first epics, give it a go. It's a pretty solid dmod, bug free, just not as funny and entertaining as others.

Like all the others so far, this is the very FIRST dmod I played, and it was a welcome introduction to the Dink community.
The story was weird, but pretty good. I also like the UFO-graphics.
GRAPHICS 8: Way back (1998) the UFO-graphics looked pretty good. There were some other, overall good, graphics too.
SOUND 7: A bit boring, especially in the Land of Boring, haha. New soundeffects were good though.
GAMEPLAY 8.2: VERY solid, no bugs, and I liked the many puzzles in it. I DID get bored in the end tho'.
LASTING APPEAL 7.9: Pretty big, but absolutely NO replay value.
TOTAL: 8.0
