So.. I'm finally submitting a review for the game that made this site and its content possible!
I'll review it 3 times, 'cause I feel you can see Dink Smallwood like 3 different games.

1) As a normal game
2) As a dmod
3) As the thing that made all dmods and this lovely community possible

As for no. 3, it's gets a 9.9, ofcourse. How could someone *not* gvie this a 9.9 while you're enjoying to be in this community?
I'll review part 1 and 2 now.

1) As a normal game
Dink Smallwood is a classic action-rpg like Zelda, but with humour. Graphics aren't the best around, hell no. But it's over 6 years old though, and it looks fine once you get used to the somewhat strange style.
I never liked the grass, it looks rather like some kind of strange material than grass. hmm.
Sound is good, atmospheric midis, and ok sound effects. The music in Dink is really memorable, and I somewhat get a nostalgic feeling when hearing them again
Gameplay is really good, the game itself is higly amusing, though by far not the best, but hey! DINKEDIT! This is more than a bonus. I think the actual game is a bounus and the editor is the game! Awesome. Now, the editor may not be the most userfriendly, but I think it's without a doubt the best editor ever. Ever.
Lasting appeal is where the game really shines. Full points here. I bought the game over 4 years ago and I still love it. Thank you RTSoft

GRAPHICS 7: Not the best, but functional
SOUND 8: Good music, mediocre sound effects
GAMEPLAY 9: Nice game, awesome editor
LASTING APPEAL 10: This lasts forever

2) As a dmod
If this game would have been released as a dmod, it would knock everyone's panties off. Dude, the dmod would be HUGE, humorous, good music, good use of standard graphics, not too easy, not too hard, and just great. Though, it could be better. Some dmods have, in my opinion, surpassed the original. Prophecy of the Ancients and Pilgrims Quest are just better games.

GRAPHICS 8: Nice, but nothing special
SOUND 8.5: Good use of music, though some are out of place
GAMEPLAY 9.2: Great mapdesign and quests. Very cool
LASTING APPEAL 9: HUGE! And one minigame: the duck island!

So.. let's see here. 1) = 9.9, 2) = 8.8, 3 = 9.5
That makes a 9.4, if I'm not mistaken.

TOTAL: 9.4
