The Dink Network

Cloud Castle 2: Scarab

Jameil released!
After the events of the first game, Dink finds himself in the desert prison of Salamak. He, along with Alessa and Fabian, must defeat the nefarious S Club 7, contend with the elusive Scarab Man, and travel to the Temple of the Ancients to do battle with Jamiel, a mighty Ancient.

Oh yeah, and get out of the prison!

Release Notes:- Fixed the offset on the Sahib's diague options to make an option you need to progress visible in Dink HD without having to cycle to an offscreen option.

- Ensured that beating Young Dink in boss mode in exactly 20 seconds will not permanently cause your weapons to make duck noises instead of attacking.

- Plugged a hole that allowed you to access Pencilhead's lair too early - sequence breaking here could potentially have incremented the story variable in an invalid way, so I'm hoping some other reported issues will be fixed by this.

- Modified the opening spear trap in the TOA so that it will react to missiles as well as melee when trying to safely trigger it - it shouldn't block missiles once triggered.

- Fixed some poor spelling and grammar (where it was obviously not character related anyway).

- Fixed a formatting issue with the script when entering the village during a late game event. This may or may not solve the crash that occurs Dink HD at this point - it fixed the issue for me but I've had trouble reintroducing the issue.

- Not a bug fix per se, but I modified how the light sword pickup script works in a way that should hopefully get around reported issues where the screen wouldn't unlock after taking it.

Lava pig to the rescue! 
Ahh yes, finally, the sequal of Cloud Castle!

You land in the middle of a dessert together with alessa. You must find a way to get out of this dessert prison.

Yes, yes! A great story it is! Though it seems a bit easy I must say that the story is very detailed and that it's worked out perfectly! There are many things you can do beside the main quest. There are some funny sidequests that makes the game even more pleasureable to play. I give the story a 9.5!

Graphics: Yes, the dessert tiles! Hehe, they keep looking great every time you see them.. Then, the modified creatures such as the bonca's and the slimeys. But I have to say, that Jameil is the greatest! It looks very cool! It's very detailed and I think it's one of the better graphics seen in a dmod. And ofcourse the new spells such as blood and mega hellfire. (don't know if that's graphics or gameplay though )9.0

Gameplay: Well, I never really got bored during the game. You had to walk from north to south, from south to north, from east to... you get what I mean. Also, the ability to have someone with you is of great fun. Having fabian or Alessa at your side to heal you in times you need to be healed is a nice way to improve the gameplay. New spells to play with is also something that makes the game more interesting. I can't say more, it just was great!: 9,0

Midi's: Yes, there were midi's from other dmods, but in totall you guys choose the right midi's at the right time giving the right feeling to the player. A dmod with wrong midi's isn't a good dmod, but this dmod had the right one's. This is, atleast I think it is, one of the important things during a dmod. And sometimes I just stayed at a certain area to listen to the nice midi's : 9,5

Humor: Ah yes! I laughed a lot of times, there was a lot of humor in it, though the game was on a serious base. But stewing a girl etc. Just so funny Enough to keep you entertained! (I suggest buying a ticket to go to the basement at the inn/hotel) 8,5.

Now, let me just note some other things I liked:
I liked the several endings after beating the final boss. I thought I completed the game but it said I should get a better ending... (after asking here sabre told me how to get it) Well, I think that the difficulty you guys set was a perfect one. The game wasn't easy, but it's not impossible to do. The temple of the ancients(ff7? ) was the only place of which I think was very difficult. I had to try like 12times before getting through. Ah, let me note, that the temple is my most enjoyable place. The traps were brilliant Just brilliant! Oh, and the lion king part was also great

Some things I disliked:
In the basement where all those purple soldiers are you can walk on the rocks, but if you move a bit smart you can get to places where you shouldn't come. So some hardness errors were irritating me. Also, I had like 3 or 4times that the game freezes. Two times at the Inn when trying to leave and one time at the guy talking to you after you saved some hunters. (it seems he talked to me but I talked too soon to him and then the game froze) Last irritating point(sorry I hate to do this but I think it's better to be honest right? ) is that when you're entering the last erm cave(the dark one) I came to like 3spots where the screen is being locked but I can't see enemies. They're probarly on the other side of the screen as I couldn't find them.

Anyway, I think this is one of the greatest dmods around, I enjoyed it a lot and I think this is either a huge quest or a small epic. Took me 5/6 hours I believe. Anyway, great work, and I hope to see more work of you two like this (jalous look on my face)
