Storyline: When the whole world was ruled by King Nathaniel, the Cast made an alliance with the Society of Black Arts and this alliance created Norman. Norman destroys Port Town and it is the father of Dink, Donk Smallwood, who has to defeat Norman.

Map and graphics: The map is rather small, but in the beginning done nicely. After that, you end up on a part of the map that has several empty screens. There is one new graphic: a sword.

Music: Nice choice of music.

Good: The story is nicely worked out and it keeps you going since you want to meet Norman.

Not so good: Some screens have no borders. A lot of tiles do not blend. You never get to meet Norman. Although this is a demo, the fact that you never meet Norman is dissapointing since that is what the whole story is about.
Unlike the other reviewers, I did not encounter any bugs.

Overall: A nice adventure with no end.

Fit for: If you want to play a small D-mod.

I like it but I was thrown off when it came to the end. I thought the map was good but too much empty spaces. Clever usage of using Milder and mum and Donk can kick, slap and burn the mum.I liked the plot cause when do games have killer trees? You can only speak to certain people or get the dumb person to repeat over and over. There was some bugs. The rocks in the tunnal were difficult at first. The forset where Donk's friend lives was beatiful.
It is an ok game if you just want something normal to do. Do not expect to win. Also do not expect to lose.

This dmod is not actually quite as miserable as one could think after reading that title. It's not very good, but still far from the worst dmods. There are some nice puzzles that demand a little bit of thinking, (that's rare) and the music isn't too horrible.
