Legend of Smallwood: A Dink to the Past

November 7th, 2002
Score : 8.5 good
Peasant Female
Storyline: Croggis, the king of goblins, steals Dink when he is just a child, because Croggis knows that when Dink is a grown up, he will kill all the goblins. You play wizard Martridge who has to find and save the young Dink.

Map and graphics: The map is quite large, but there is not that much to do that justifies such a large map. There are no new graphics. Some nice things have been done with old graphics: the houses of the sisters have stairs leading to the door.

Music: Chosen very well and it suits the situations real good.

Good: You play Martridge who has to save Dink: quite original. The way Martridge fights is good. There are several subquests, which are worked out well.

Not so good: A lot of tiles do not blend. Trees are not stamped onto the adjoining screens, so they are cut halfway. A house is given a brain, so it moves. More savebots would have been handy. When Martridge pushes, he turns into a grey wizard. You have to walk a lot to complete the tasks.

Overall: A nice D-mod that is entertaining and not too hard.

Fit for: If you want to play a not too long, not too hard but yet entertaining D-mod, this is a good download.
