Gorack, Umtar and Shreik: The first battle.

Good:
No hardness error or bugs (at least I did not find any). Apart from many other romps, this one has a nice decorated map.
The title screen is very good, one of the best I have seen.

Bad:
You do not know what to do when the game starts. There is no intro, no story, no hints or anything. There is not a single savebot in the game. The music is disturbing, except for the fighting and kidnap scence. Since Dink is not frozen when talking to people, one might leave a screen before some NPC said everything he was supposed to say. But on the other hand, the people in this game do not say much, so nothing of value will be missed. Apart from some pillbugs, there are only the three knights to fight so there is not much to do.

I have played romps worse than this but it is not the best romp either.
