Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice. 
It's not a masterpiece, but since it's a "first DMOD", I think it's good.

Story: 8.0
Interesting... Dink wants to save Johny, and ends by killing him.
Maybe it's a bit too short, but it's funny.

Gameplay: 6.0
Maybe I'm not so good in battles, but I think the monsters are too strong(or maybe I didn't find all the potions and hearts). By the other hand, the tasks are easy, so you don't have to walk around, ask yourself what to do...

Map: 5.0
The bad part upon the map is that you don't know where it ends. It should be bordered with some trees or rocks, to let the player know that there's the end. Sometimes, I had the impression that some screens were missing.

Music: 9.0
The music is good, and fits the situations.

Scripts: 6.0
Well... not so good. You should use some global variables, to set what people say, in different situations.
For example, at the beging of the game, you talk with Jonny, he tells you that the army arrives, you go and see it, then you go back to Johny's place, and he tells you again about the army. Also, in the screen with the army, there are some people that doesn't talk. They should say at least "What a great army", or "Cool".
At the end boss, when you talk to him, you can't use the space key to get the next words, so it's quite boring.
The dialogs are good and they have humor(I liked the part with the duck).

Overall: 6.8
Sorry for so many critics. I liked the game, but it has good parts and bad parts. I mentioned the bad ones and I want to let the player to discover the good ones.
Good job, DinkDragon!
