Storyline: There is no story since this is an arcadestyle game. Well, there is a tiny story: since Dink is fed up with solving puzzles, he goes to watch Dukie kill all kind of monsters.

Map and graphics: The map is small; it consists of four screens for the game. The graphics for Dukie are new; they look funny. The title screen and background are new, and, as well as the graphics used for Dukie, from another game.

Music: Action music!

Good: Aiming and shooting with the mouse works very well. At first I thought you had to aim with the cursor, but that was not necessary. You have to calculate when to fire in order to shoot down all the enemies. Some are slow, other are fast, some are close, others are far away and sometimes it is extra difficult because there are trees standing in the way. The fireballs look very nice. You can fire one fireball at a time or choose for repetitive firing; then you score better on 'percentage killed' but less good in 'percentage of shots hit'. Those are two of the kept scores. The others are 'total shots' and 'total hits'. It is fun that every monster is killed by one shot. If you always wanted to kill a stone giant with just one blow, this is your chance! After a while of killing monsters, it gets a bloody mess, and that looks so grotesque it is funny!

Not so good: Too bad you can not save your game. When you pause the game for a while by going to Windows, the game is frozen when you come back and you have to restart.

Overall: A very entertaining and good game.

Fit for: Anyone.

This game was a new innovative idea and it was short and fun, a little too short though.

Story: The story itself is bad; dink is trying to solve a puzzle to get some magic pebbles? When dukie comes up to him and asks it he wants to watch him shoot stuff. To me this doesnít seem like the best storyline but it is probly meant to be like that.

Gameplay: This is a short Dmod, it took me about two minutes to pass. It would have been better with duke monsters, but as the description said the creator didnít want to spend to much time on it. Being so simple there are no errors in this Dmod.

Graphics: Simple dink only graphics the only new one is dukie. The map set out is nothing since the monster just go across the screen mindlessly

Music: The music suited the situation, im not sure if it is from duke or not though, being so very long since I played it

Final Thoughts: Fun and short, unfortunately no replayabilty though. This Dmod Could be Better with some work, but at the moment it is fine the way it is
Good: Original idea and the ability to use mouse.
Bad: The fact it get boring, the story

The world could always use more heroes 
Duke Nukem is here to show off his skills with Dink Smallwood watching. You move your mouse around and click to kill enemys. This is a very different kind of D-Mod. Duke Nukem says in Duke Nukem 3D "Come get some", but I say "Come get some meat."

Maps 8.5
Graphics 8.5
Music 8.5

A good little D-Mod thats best for Duke Nukem fans.

In the weird but funny category, definitely a good dmod.

As SabreTrout said, it's target practice all the way and fun to see how you score.

The music is well suited (and well-paced) for the type of game.
Background graphics the more "dangerous", the higher the level.

Nice work.
