Storyline: You have to defeat the government that lives on another island.

Map and graphics: The map looks nice with enough details. There are no new graphics. The title screen when installing the game looks very good, but the title screen when loading the game itself looks real bad: it has a blurred upper part that is no image at all.

Music: The music is very good and goes well with the situation.

Good: The scene in the school is done very nicely. When hitting the barrel in Dink’s room, Dink’s reaction is funny. The self-destruct mechanism is a nice touch.

Not so good: The bridge is a warp instead of a bridge you can walk over. There is no way to leave the castle since the warp does not work. There is no introduction to this story, so you do not know what you are doing until you talk to one of the guys in school. There is no zeal to this D-mod; you play it al right, but it does not give you any sense of adventure or the wish to see what is going to happen next.

Overall: A very easy D-mod.

Fit for: If you want to play an easy D-mod and do not mind the lack of gameplay.

Any fool can use a computer. Many do. 
Plot: The people on the island where Dink lives are forming a resistance against the government on the other island. Dink joins them. He goes to the other island to kill the government there.

Difficulty: It's a very short and easy D-Mod to play. The map is tiny so you'll never get stuck.

Graphics: Nothing special, just trees, grass etc. Everything looks fine but the author hasn't done anything to make it beautiful.

Sound: Also nothing special, a few midi's, but they don't add something to the D-Mod.

New weapons/magic: No new ones. All you have is fireball magic and a sword.

Bugs: I haven't found any but I'm not suprised by that, it's so small and there's no 'advanced' coding done.

Other: There's a Continue button (when you start the D-Mod) but there's not a savemachine in the game. The author has also used a different font than most of the D-Mods.

Overall: It's too small to be a really good D-Mod and there's nothing special done. The D-Mod is not bad but I'd only recommend this one if you want to play everything Dink related. A very small D-Mod which doesn't offer anything new, that's a good way to describe this one.
