GlennGlenn doesn't want a custom title. 
I wouldn't recommend downloading this. This is just a new map where the author added an island with pigs. But when I overwrote the current map file which came with the original Dink Smallwood game with the addon map file, the map got completily messed up, the entire map was destroyed. This is a horrible thing for an addon fpr DinkSmallwood, it's not worth to even try it.

This file adds some pigs on a small island in a place you cannot get to without cheating. It's astonishing that this isn't the worst file in the network, and it's actually quite hilarious. I can understand someone making an island and putting in pigs when bored, but releasing it is another story. Thumbs up for the author!

The only place this add-on belongs, is in my recycle bin on my desktop.
If i had to describe this add-on in ONE word, and ONE word only, it would be fabulous.

Reasons why its fabulous:
#1. Can't kill the pigs
#2. It's in the middle of nowhere
#3. Waste of space

Overall: 0.1

One word... Crap.

This d-mod places two islands inhabited by giant and small pigs in the origional game.
Like DethLord said, they are on screen 324, doing nothing.
You can't even kill them!

I can't find any reason you would want to download this unless you wanted to see it. Like Me.

This file is plain stupid.

The other reviewers already said all there is to say about the map.

As the authors says: 'There is no adventure' and 'This is really nothing to be that happy about.' Indeed.

He also states: 'It really was just the result of me being bored for about 10 minutes.' Please find something useful to do when you are bored – or stay bored but refrain from making such stupid things.

Yes, it's true. All this little extension has to offer is a screen with some pigs. On an isle! Not much, true but his add-on was released 4 years ago, when there were NO d-mods..  Ok, by today's standards, it might not seem that cool (understatement)or interesting but back then...  it really wasn't either
Anyway, it deserves a 2, for nostalgic value!

Any fool can use a computer. Many do. 
This 'Isle(s) of the Pigs add-on' adds some isles with pigs to your map.dat. When I downloaded this, I had a feeling that this couldn't be any fun at all - and that's true, I'll explain. Christian (who 'made' this add-on) decided to help all the Dinkers to create an isle with some pigs. So I installed this add-on by placing the mapfile in the dink directory. I started the game and crossed the lands, looking for an isle with pigs...

...and I didn't find it. Ok, then I'll try to find it with DinkEdit. And it wasn't easy to find it here but finally: screen 324! An existing group of three islands is now the habitat of five big pigs and two tiny pigs. I've no idea how to get there in the original game so I teleported to the place with the Ultimate Cheat . The pigs are walking around and that's all they do. You don't seem to be able to kill them so there's really nothing you can do with the pigs except watching them.

Overall: Writing a review about a few pigs on an island in the middle of nowhere is just great . Anyway, you can't get there normally (without cheating) AFAIK, there's nothing to do except looking for some pigs walking around so there's actually nothing good to say about this 'add-on'. It's just like the author (Christian Ducharme) said in the readme: It really was just the result of me being bored for about 10 minutes. And after seeing crap like this, I'm bored too so I'm giving this a bad score .
