Cloud Castle 2 : Scarab
by Sabre Trout and Arik

This is the best DMod I have played after PQ. I haven't played Cloud castle 1
so I don't know what happened there but in the beginning of the game Dink finds himself in a desert prison Salamak. Dink tries to free the prisoners that were imprisoned unjustly. It takes quite 4 to 5 hours to complete so it is nearly an epic.

Story: Splendid storyline. Dink has been dumped into a colony to sustain an ancient called Jamiel. Seperate from the main story there is S Club 7 that bring some humor into the game.

Gameplay: Clever scripting all around. There is a perfect balance maintained throughout the game. Some new graphics and monsters like the blood spitting bonca and the small pillbugs , "scarabs". The gameplay gets unbalanced by the temple of ancients but probably it was done by intention.

Mapping: One of the most beautiful maps I have seen, each screen is well decorated with weel chosen sprites. The desert rocks. There were a few hardness bugs but never distracted from the game. The desert tiles couldn't have looked better.

Midis: There were some midis from other DMods and were used exactly where they fitted. I likked the title midi and the emergency ones the best. The midis suited the environment of the game.

Graphics: Some new modifies graphics which looked great and were made neatly. Nothing to comment on this too much.

Humor: Sometimes funny, sometimes makes you laugh out aloud and sometimes weird. It was a bonus point to the gameplay.

Overall: 9.9, the best of all.

Hope there is Cloud Castle 3. Really looking forward for it
