This is an unfinished DMOD - which is an "ongoing game" - that is there is no overall objective (at least not established at the start).

You get to fight pillbugs and boncas to level up, and then... well, if you are still playing you can go to towns (some with empty rooms) and a cave system. All of these are also accessible via 8 saved games.

I got bored and tried the saved games, only the last couple seem to be worth looking at.

This DMOD does used the redink.exe v0.03 engine - but beyond the change to what Dink says when he is looking at nothing (The rod line made me laugh) and the "I showed my inventory" line I couldn't see that much that was different.

So if you're bored and want to spend a few hours killing things, plus get some humour - give it a go.

Overall: 6.0 out of 10

I love this game! This really sets an example for other dinkers thinking of making Dmods. I have searched and searched, and this is the type of DMOD that I really have wanted to play. Sadly, it is made by a currently inactive member, and probably wont be finished. Graphics: 9.7/10 = No new graphics, but they are all used nicely. Story: 9.5/10 = Nothing that great, nothing that bad, but it does lead to some interesting gameplay. I especialy like TAL and REDINK1 Being characters, using their sprites from TDN MESSAGE BOARDS. The basic story here, is help TAL kill evil message posters in a creepy dungeon, but first go through towns full of evil people that insult you. Nothing that creative here folks. The only thing that keeps this from getting a higher mark is that it isnt finished, and has no ending. Music 0.0 : Nothing really here. As far as I can remember, it doesnt even HAVE music, and the duck sound affects are REALLY annoying (I kill them right away) Overall: 9.6/10 = This game is an instant classic, burdened by the fact you know it has no hope of being continued. some interesting things I have to point out are: There is a built in cheat system, and there are saved files already in game. Hope this review helps you in some way --- Ryan/rp64
