Storyline: Seth is back since his soul survived and now he is a dragon. Dink must therefore defeat him once again. That should be the story, but you have no clue about Seth or a dragon until you actually see him. Before that it is all about bonca’s pestering Libby and members of the Cast that Dink has to defeat.

Map and graphics: The map is horrible. It is quite empty, most sprites have the wrong hardness (either hardness when they should not have it or no hardness when they should have hardness) but the most annoying thing is that there are no borders at all so you have to check all four sides of each screen to see if there is adjoining screen or not. I guess the author thinks that potions and hearts are there for decoration since they are everywhere.

Music: There are two midi's that play on four screens, but they do not make the game any better.

Good: At least the author tried to make a D-mod, which is always good, but releasing it was a very bad idea.

Not so good: Although Libby asks (sort of) to kill the bonca's, she does not say anything else when you indeed have killed the bonca's; she just asks you over and over again to kill the bonca's. You do not even have to kill the bonca's in order to proceed in the game, so I really do not see the point of Libby and/or the bonca's being there since they do not add anything. There is no progress in any script, so not only Libby keeps repeating herself, but all the other sprites too. The wizard says the same thing over and over again and even dragon Seth can not be bothered to change his lines. What is also bad is that you can go back to the room where you first met Seth after you have killed him in the next room and he will react like you are standing before him for the first time. After killing Seth you are warped to several screens and I had no idea what that was for since Dink says he has to go to the castle and inform the King. I never got to the castle but ended up (after having been warped several times to other screens) on the screen with Libby. And guess what? She asked Dink to kill the bonca's, so you could start all over again – something I really did not want to do. I checked the editor and there is no castle and no King what so ever.

Overall: A horrible D-mod.

Fit for: No one.
