This one just don't do anything for me. I was never into Starcraft so I guess that's why.

Graphics: Yes there are new ones, little robot things. Which while I can appreciate the time it took to adjust them for the Dink Engine, they just didn't do anything for me.

7 out of 10.

Map: Average map work. Strange with grass and hills and the robots. Didn't click for me.
7 out of 10.

Gameplay: Too much repetition in what you had to do.
7 out of 10.

Sounds and Music: Suited the piece, but not to my taste.
8 out 10.

Overall: You will probably enjoy this if you are a fan of Starcraft. I'm not, and I didn't

Daniel, there are clowns. 
An enjoyable d-mod all around. It's been a while since I've played this one, but I remember it being a lot of fun, although short.

I found the "new" graphics and concept to be quite fun, though repetitive. This is pretty much just a cool shoot-em-up dmod.

If there's any reason to download this, it's just to get to the last boss. It's probably one of the most memorable of all Dink moments.

The world could always use more heroes 
??????? All I can really say is this D-Mod is weird. you are a robot named Ed who is an SCV (what does that mean?) that has to rescue his friends. That is all I have to say before my ratings

Graphics 10.0
Plot 7.6
Storyline 7.6
MIDIs 6.7
Lasting Appeal ?.?
Overall 7.6

I woundn't recommend this D-Mod to many people. Only people that know what StarCraft is. (Hmmmm. Maybe that's why I don't like it much. What is StarCraft anyway?)

An alright game. Storyline was a bit far fetched. But the ending was realistic enough. And after you got something better than the electro-mine which was a pain, there were times when it was fun.

I really liked the idea of using the Starcraft graphics for a D-mod. The use of weapons is also creative.

Good:Fun idea, hilarious ending. Nice new graphics.

Bad:Simple and short.

Right, this a nice little game with plenty new graphics. The boss was really good fun and so were the weapons. Especially the rocket launcher.

I had one or two problems though.

1. It got really boring after a while, as all you could do was, shoot creatures, talk to someone, get another weapon, shoot again, talk again, get another weapon, etc....

2.The enemies were a bit harder than I thought they should be. Especially the little ones. They're near dang impossible to get rid of.

So altogether, I would say that if you like shooting things, and killing them, then this is the right game for you. However, if you don't like that kind of stuff as much, then this isn't the game for you. But, totally, this is a cool little game with neat graphics.

Ed is stranded on Earth and has to get back to his own world.

All the animated graphics, as well as the weapons and the weapon-icons in the inventory are new and they look really good; although some are a bit small.
The storyline is rather thin and at first I had no clue what to do. I got very good in dodging, since I could not kill any enemie with just the 'fist' Ed uses. But once I got my hands on a projectile-weapon it turned out to be a fun game. It is a well worked out shoot 'm, blast 'm, kill 'm D-mod with nice mapping, cool graphics and really good music.
The one thing I did not like was the auto-save: if you level up but are killed, you start again with what the auto-save saved: and I want to define when and how many times I save.
The end was a bit dissapointing since the end-boss was too easy to kill and since the narrator tells you that Ed can't get out of the room so he will never return to his homeplanet.
But if you like weapons that blast,this is your D-mod!

Being both a Starcraft and a Dink smallwood fan, I decided to play this D-mod. In it you play an scv (Sorta like a builder, just in a robotic suit). The storyline is instantly forgettable, but hey, that doesn't really matter.
Strengths: Nice porting of graphics with nary a bug in sight. Excellent, if a little easy last boss. Good choice of weapons.
Weaknesses: No real developing plot, just blast blast blast, talk, get new weapon, blast blast etc.
If you are looking for a short saturday afternoon blast, or want to relive those old Starcraft memories, this is the d-mod for you!

A StarCraft based Dmod. certainly something different, but I thought it was a bit boring, well okay, the boss was fun, and so are the weapons (rocket launcher yeah baby!) Still, it left me bored after a while
GRAPHICS 7.8: Alright, all new kinds of enemies. Looking good too, just like the real Starcraft graphics.
SOUND 7.1: Average/good music. Energyful, that mught be just the right word for it.
GAMEPLAY 6.4: Notning new, and quite boring. Nice weapons though and the boss was fun fun fun.
LASTING APPEAL 5.0: I turned bored pretty quick. Also no reason to play it again after you finished it.
TOTAL: 6.3

keep it real 
this is a fun game. it gets repetitive after a while, but i wasnt bored by the time i was already to the end. the enemies are fun and the weapons are neat. boss is greatest part of the game! short but still fun. not much replay im afraid.
