Dink goes Trick-or-Treating is a tiny D-mod in which you have to find as many candy as possible.

Plot: You have to figure out which costumes are most appreciated by the owners of the several houses in order to get candy.

Good: Changing costumes is real fun. There are no bugs. At first I thought it was impossible to get the amount of candy needed in the time given, but it is not: it is a matter of racing against the clock and that makes it exciting. The pumpkin you choose is nicely carved by mum and the bigger one you choose, the bigger one you get.

Not so good: The music could have been a bit more eerie. Once the time is up, the game stops, so if you want to experiment a bit while wearing costumes, you have to do it in the time given.
I got a bit bored with starting over and over again.

Remark: I regret that once the game is finished I won't play it again because the biggest fun lies in figuring out the puzzle and once you know that there is no need to do it again.

Overall: Good idea which is nicely worked out.

Fit for: Those who don't mind puzzling and have a few minutes to spare.
