The Dink Network

Creeping Sands (The)

Description
"A short romp - that sorta turns into a quest. Dink is summoned by King Daniel to find out why the world is becoming a desert. This DMOD started out as being a project I wanted to spend only 24 hours on. Basically start it one night and have it finished the next. I didn't make it. Bugs (hopefully all the really nasty ones are killed now) and the desire to add new graphics (so shoot me, I can't help myself) meant it took just over 72 hours. Mind you this was not non-stop."

This is a romp - a one quick quest thing. So don't expect too much in that regard. The task is too find out what is causing the sands to creep. There are plenty of secrets to find and their are new graphics and new sounds - silly toilet humour abounds. If you don't like that sort of thing don't play this DMOD. If you're looking for a quest then this is not the DMOD you're looking for.

Graphics: new stuff. Enemies that are from Stone of Balance, plus Eyeball makes an appearance and a new boss. The first of it's kind. Walks in all 8 directions and has it's own unique attack sequence and death sequence. Added bonus is the ability to burn the cactus - some of which reveal secrets. 10 out 10

Sounds: New sounds for selecting choices and menus, new sounds for monsters, and the end boss. Midis are nice and suit the theme 9 out of 10.

Mapping - High level of detail, realistic with the sands that creep, but probably too large for a romp 9 out of 10

Specials - the burning cactii and the riddle. Although the riddle made it's first appearance in SOB it is still an interesting addition - for those that like riddles. There are plenty of clues to help. 9 out of 10

Overall: a fun if slightly long romp. The winner of Download of the Month, it will appeal to some but not all.
