It was a nice surprise when I saw this arcade-like game, and it was indeed fun playing it.

Map and graphics: The map is done nicely, as is the title screen. The road really gives the impression of speed.

Good: The piles of gold are somewhat similar to enemies; you get experience points for them, and you enter a new level once you have a certain amount of points. You also get more lifemax with every new level.
When I played the game for the first time I thought you could only move from left to right and vice versa and since I was close to the top of the screen is was quite hard to dodge the rocks. But then I discovered that you can move Dink in all directions it is fun seeing Dink slide down without moving - and that made the game real easy. After level 4 it gets a bit harder, but not much. But you can choose the difficulty level by standing real close to the top of the screen or instead all the way down at the bottom of the screen.

Not so good: I encountered a bug: after loading a saved game the game crashes. And the first time there was no music. And you can not load a saved game when you restart the game (after the game crashed); only when you get killed you can load a saved game. After a while the game gets boring and I quit after reaching level 4.

Fit for: If you want to play a fun arcade game for a couple of minutes, this is the one to download.
