Gorack, Umtar, and Shreik: The First Battle

Best title screen ever
June 1st, 2003
Score : 2.0 horrible
Peasant She/Her
Storyline: You have to defeat a knight. Why? I have no clue what so ever. The story is not explained, not in the readme.txt, not in the D-mod itself, and since the author says in the dmod.diz: 'I’m not giving away information!' there is no way you can find out what is going on in this D-mod or for what purpose.

Map and graphics: Quite an amazing title screen! Too bad the buttons do not go with it. The map is very nicely decorated and is a pleasure to look at: there are some benches in the forest so you can have a rest, and there are some rapids in the river. There are some new tiles that look rather good.

Music: Suits the situation.

Good: The map is done nicely, but since there is no story to this D-mod and therefore no gameplay, that seems really useless.

Not so good: No story, no explanation, no gameplay. Although the title screen, the new tiles and the map look nice, you need a lot more to make a decent D-mod. Besides that: there is a although the scripts are c. files. Some fish in the water disappear when you enter the screen. There are only two sprites you can talk to and what they say do not add anything. Almost all the houses are empty besides a bed. When you are fighting the knights, the credits already show.

Overall: A nice looking map but no game to play.

Remark: The map deserves a 8, the title screen a 9, but since there is no story to play, I can not but give the D-mod a low score.

Fit for: No one. Unless you want to have a look at a nicely decorated map. But if you want to look at a nice map, then you would be better of downloading a D-mod that has gameplay too.
