This D-mod is one of the five entries in the Evil Hero D-mod Contest (the other ones are Beginning of Evil, Mayhem, Rascal and Twins).

Storyline: Dink is inside a computer that has a virus.

Map and graphics: The title screen is done very good. Just what you expect when you see the title. The buttons are done in the same style and it looks very good indeed.

Music: Nice music, especially in the beginning of the game.

Good: The idea is very nice and the twist in the story at the end too. The moving chest looks funny, but I do not think it was intended this way.

Not so good: There are no borders on the first and second screen and the intro repeats itself when you enter the first screen again. The sprites on the third and fifth screen have brain 6 so they move – the same goes for some screens in the village. There are no savebots in the caves although there are four screenlocks after each other, then two screens with bonca’s and then another two screenlocked screens. A lot of sprites have the same script, which seems odd since you have already read that information. The people in the village do not add anything to the story. And I had a hard time understanding the story since the information you get is very minimal. The end boss is very strong and you can not level up enough due to lack of ways to get healed and save the game in the caves.

Overall: A rather bugged D-mod.

Fit for: If you do not mind some bugs and like to fight.
