Storyline: There is no story since this is an arcadestyle game. Well, there is a tiny story: since Dink is fed up with solving puzzles, he goes to watch Dukie kill all kind of monsters.

Map and graphics: The map is small; it consists of four screens for the game. The graphics for Dukie are new; they look funny. The title screen and background are new, and, as well as the graphics used for Dukie, from another game.

Music: Action music!

Good: Aiming and shooting with the mouse works very well. At first I thought you had to aim with the cursor, but that was not necessary. You have to calculate when to fire in order to shoot down all the enemies. Some are slow, other are fast, some are close, others are far away and sometimes it is extra difficult because there are trees standing in the way. The fireballs look very nice. You can fire one fireball at a time or choose for repetitive firing; then you score better on 'percentage killed' but less good in 'percentage of shots hit'. Those are two of the kept scores. The others are 'total shots' and 'total hits'. It is fun that every monster is killed by one shot. If you always wanted to kill a stone giant with just one blow, this is your chance! After a while of killing monsters, it gets a bloody mess, and that looks so grotesque it is funny!

Not so good: Too bad you can not save your game. When you pause the game for a while by going to Windows, the game is frozen when you come back and you have to restart.

Overall: A very entertaining and good game.

Fit for: Anyone.
