Once upon a Hero (Demo) by SabreTrout

The Good: An excellent dmod (as dmods go). This Dink lives in a world where magic and monsters don’t exist (no cable either) and it isn’t until his friend (the bookworm) discovers the secret. The usual monsters appear, and not all in a big rush, with Dink wondering what they are. (I thought that was funny). Later on , while on a mission, he discovers the “spiders” and I thought they were the best monsters of them all.. The scenery was lush and the village people had something to say. The status button (S) was helpful, though I am not sure for what. Since this is only the demo, the author has promised us much more to come, and I can hardly wait!

The Bad: Hardness errors in the first village. My computer crashed or froze, depending on whom I was talking to, after “Dink’s Mother” went for a walk. Took me awhile, to find out, there was only one place to go, and after that everything went smoother. I could still walk on walls (mountain) and walk on water for abit (something I always like to try, just to see if I can)and got stuck on rocks. Lucky I save alot. Not alot of money to be found, so I was stuck with a regular sword, maybe when the game is made into the epic, more things will happen. Couldn’t hear if there was any music, as I am still using the old computer. (until the new one arrives!!)

Overall: A nice dmod demo, and I really hope this one gets finished, as the author promised. (hopefully before the year 2010 ) I have always enjoyed playing his other dmods, and am looking forward to the full version of this one.
