Dink Jumps by rabidwolf9

This pack contains graphics used in the original Dink modified in an innovative way through some clever scripting. Though I do not quite agree with the idea of placing benches(or similar sprites) all over the cliffs and attaching scripts to them. It seems a long and tedious job but I can't suggest a better idea of doing the whole thing, so it is quite ok.

Graphics: Nothing new, even though it is a graphics pack. I deduct 1 here as I was expecting some new graphics but the author has used the original ones made by Justin Martin.

Sounds: 1 new "huah" sound which is quite funny but seems nice as the author has himself voiced it.

Scripting: The scripting is very well done. Clever use of the original graphics to a new effect. The use of the 'P' key to jump unnecessarily is quite nice. It freely expresses Dink's happiness and could well be used in a situation where Dink is just screaming, jumping and running shouting 'Hurray'. Thumbs up once more for the author's scripting.

Suggestions: Some new graphics should be added as I mentioned earlier as this is supposed to be a graphics pack. It would be really cool if the ideas given in the readme could be implemented:
1. Dink jumping over an enemy.
2. Dink jumping over obstacles like fences, small walls and can even add some super jump mode in which he could jump down mountains and over forests etc.

Overall: A good file that can improved upon by adding new graphics and other weird stuff.

Remember you're unique, just like everyone else. 
This thyng is cool,
Dink can walk
Dink can talk
Dink can punch stuff
Dink can do magic

But Dink couldn't jump up till now

It's not just some graphics in a folder you can see it work as well, not only can you jump when you want, you can jump down off the cliff which is cool, what would be even cooler would be if Dink had to jump down himself but someone else can do that.

The movement flows well, it is key activated, Dink makes a cool noise and it could be adapted well and easily like 'buttstomping' in FIAT.
