I totally agree with DethLord: this must be the worst D-mod ever. If there was a Razzie Award for D-mods, this one would not even stand a change of receiving the award since it is terrible; it does not even live up to the standards for a Razzie.

Storyline: None. You start in a village and you can wander around aimlessly. That is the only thing to do in this D-mod. You see quite a mess; dead people, and burning houses and so on. You do not have a clue why you are there or what you are supposed to be doing. There is no interaction, no conversation; there are not even any scripts in the story directory.

Map and graphics: I walked several screens and then decided to use the editor. Because I could not believe my eyes when seeing the map, I started counting: there are 145 screens with nothing on them, except for a shoreline or a road. Of those 145 empty screens there are 102 that only have plain grass. There are 40 screens with sprites, but none of them have hardness. Perhaps that is because, as the author states, that since you are a ghost, you can walk through everything…

Music: The music was some classical midi. Hearing that kind of music while you are walking through some devastated country reminded me of Apocalypse Now in which Robert Duval says: “I love the smell of napalm in the morning.”

The only not so terribly bad thing about this D-mod: The combination of classical music and some destroyed country adds a certain… strange touch.

Not so good: Everything else.

Overall: The worst D-mod ever.

Fit for: No one.

Love! True love! 
Well, let's get to it.

Although there wasn't a progressive story in this D-Mod, there was at least a backstory. Dink dies (in a fire, I'm assuming, based on all know, fire), and becomes a ghost. Other than being told you're a ghost, there's no real indication that you're dead. I'm not completely sure if walking through things is supposed to be ghostly, or if the sprites just weren't set to 'hard'. >_>

Gameplay and Mapping:
The gameplay would have been a bit more interesting if any of the sprites had scripts. Most are just set to brain 6 (repeat) and left there, usually depicting a scene of some kind. Honestly, the game would have been slightly interesting if the map hadn't have been so huge and empty. 180+ screens, most of them empty, and covered in the gross default grass tiles.

Wouldn't recommend it. If the map were smaller and the sprites did more than just run their animations, it would have been an alright game to just kill time and explore a world.

Eh, what can I say about this D-Mod? There's really nothing to review here, you start in a random screen with dead bodies and you can walk around and do nothing. There's no active sprites or any NPC's. In the description, it says "You're a ghost", but I believe that's just a line to compensate for the lack of knowledge to create a D-Mod, I mean, it was decided that you would be a ghost when you can't make any conversations to work.

Not worth downloading at all.

An incomplete DMOD – there is only a number of screens to wander around in. Nothing works, no status bar appears. No point to this DMOD.

Nothing has any hardness. Some sprites move but you can’t interact with them or anything. I’m not sure why this was even released.

Overall 0.1 out of 10

Is this guy serious? In nearly threw up when I played this...scratch that, I did throw up! This doesn't even deserve to be called a beta version. It probably took me more time to download this than it took the author to make it, and I have a cable modem.

The Good: Umm...err...hmm...uh...not even the title screen.

The Bad: No stoyline, no point to this dmod, the sound, the gameplay (what gameplay?) and everything else that could possibly be bad in the history of dmods, is here.

Overall: Too bad there's no negative rating, because this truly deserves it. I never had a dmod suck the life out of me like this. I feel bad for my computer just having to run it. Don't make the same mistake that me and the people who reviewed this dmod did. Don't download it. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE LIKE THE PLAGUE!!

It may be just a BETA, but I never played a worse BETA.
There's nothing to do in this dmod... I searched the entire map for NPC's or stuff you could interact with, but it just 'wasn't there'.
GRAPHICS - 3.0: Just plain bad
SOUND - 2.0: There's not even one single midi!
GAMEPLAY - 2.0: You can walk through everything... that's it.
LASTING APPEAL - 1.1: What lasting appeal?
TOTAL: 2.0
REALLY not worth the download!
