The Dink Network

Goblin Trouble

The title screen. From the COTPATD project.
Dinks second BIG adventure (GOBLIN TROUBLE) has lots of things to do, I scripted almost everything. Try to talk to everything. Most of the times it will turn out to be a complete waste of time, but it's pretty funny.

Storyline: It is not clear in the beginning what you have to do, but when you put together the information from the readme!!!.txt and from the D-mod, this is what the story is: Dink is in a land unknown and has to rescue a kidnapped King in order to be a hero once again. You can not rescue the King though, since the D-mod ends halfway.

Map and graphics: The map is small, but has lots of details. There are some new graphics, such as part of the status bar, and a knife, but they are not that good.

Music: There is one midi in the sound folder, but I did not hear any music while playing.

Good: It is quite easy to finish.

Not so good: When you talk to a tree on the first screen, you die, and have to restart since there is no savebot on the first screen. The same when talking to the sign on the first screen. When you go north when you are on the second screen, you are thrown out of the game. I had to use the editor to find out that there were already 99 sprites placed on that screen, so when Dink entered the screen, there was one sprite too many. When I used the flaming axe magic, I was thrown out of the game again.
You can not kill the pillbug – the author mentions something about a bug with a pillbug in the readme!!!.txt, so I guess this is what he is referring to.
After you have punched a fence, you have to go back a screen and then come back, otherwise you can not go to the next screen – the author mentions this in the readme!!!.txt.

Remark: The author said in the readme.txt: ‘And, if you're a good secret finder, you will find a guy named Drink Thirstgood. If you find him, mail me.’, but at the end of the .txt he says: ‘All you have to do is go to the screen with the dead goblin (Snog). There you will find a guy named Drink Thirstgood.’ So there is not much of a secret to be found, since the author tells you where to find him.
By the way, the guy says his name is Tallroot, not Thirstgood.

Overall: A rather mediocre D-mod.

Fit for: If you want to play an easy to finish D-mod.
