This is pillbug's long anticipated "The Quest for Not Quite as Lame"! This was quite an awesome D-mod, and a huge improvement over "Happy Sunshine Land".

Basic Info
Dink receives a letter regarding crappy files made by his world's creator, and he is determined not to let it happen again and sets off for the one called 'pillbug'. This D-mod is straightforward and simple, and very creative. There are a number of dinkers mentioned/in this D-mod, which is pretty cool. The bosses aren't too tough, and there is a lot of good humour in this D-mod.

There was a few new graphics. There was a wasp enemy, ghost girl, and the title screen had different buttons. There was also one area of the game that was a tribute to "Happy Sunshine Land," and it didn't suck!

The map was quite large, and it was well done. I felt the screens could have been more detailed, however. There were not any major tile issues. There were no major hardness bugs that I was aware of. Overall it was great.

There isn't much to say about this. There was a good selection of midi's that fit the situations they were used in for the most part. He used one of the midi's in two different areas, which I thought was a bit odd and unusual, but maybe that's just me.

There is very little to say in this area. Most of the bugs were fixed with the help of all the beta-testers. If anything, I would say there are too many secret areas and potions, making it a bit too easy, and the "Scripted Steel" seems a bit overpowered. However, that is just my opinion. But other than that there is not much wrong with this D-mod.

This was a great D-mod. I'm sad to say it was better than my D-mod by far, in terms of creativity, and originality. This is such a great improvement over "Happy Sunshine Land", and I hope pillbug continues to create files of this awesomeness!.
