In this demo of The Fountain of Life, the king asks Dink to deliver a present (that's a box of chocolates) to a girl named Jischlie. That seems easy but then an evil wizard comes with some goblins, takes the king away and he puts Dink into a prison. Dink escapes from the prison but now he must save the king - as far as the demo tells. This demo isn't a difficult one because the only enemies are pillbugs which you can easily avoid and/or kill. It's not a long D-Mod, the demo just ends at a certain point in the game. There's only one new item that you can get in your inventory and that's the present from the king and when you use it, Dink will take the chocolates and it'll refill his life.

The graphics in this D-Mod are fine but some screens have been decorated with a few sprites. There's also a missing graphic from the castle on a screen but oh well, I'll just let ya know. The demo of this D-Mod has five good midi in the sound directory but only one has been used in the D-Mod.

Too bad it's a demo now because you can't finish the mainquest but there's a small subquest in a house where you can help the old woman to get rid of the monsters in the basement, she'll give you some experience for that.
The reviewscore this D-Mod gets is also because of the fact that it's a demo. It's a good D-Mod for a demo but it could even be better when the author releases the full version of The Fountain of Life.
