Off-Handed Shield

Design concept for an Off-Hand shield! Dink can now defend himself a bit better, at the cost of using his Magic slot.
Check the included Readme for instructions on how to add this to your own Dmod.

Features included:

- Barehanded Shield Graphics (For punching)
- Sword & Shield Graphics (For slashing)
- 'Guard' state: when used to actively block, provides a temporary boost to defense
- Passive boost to defense by simply wielding the shield
- A small map with enemies, reusable health station, and in-game explanations

An addon exists for this mod, created by Josko, which includes new herb boots and light sword graphics, both shielded and non-shielded versions.

So this is not a real game add on, it did pop up as first in the list of add ons for me on my iPad so I thought let?s try it out.

The graphics look really cool with holding the shield, both types, the standard one and the smaller, little round one. Plus the ring around Dink at his feet letting you know how long the shield blocking effect has left is nice.

You can use the shield if you are armed with a sword or just Dink?s fist, but not the bow, which makes sense seeing that is a two handed weapon.

There is no quest here, just a few screens with different monsters to try things out, and one place with a guy who tells you about how it all works, which I didn?t really understand but I guess those who can create these add on games would get it. I burnt the trees hoping for secrets or a quest, but nothing.

You can stand over or on top of the health potion bottle on the stool which was a bit weird.

Hope to see someone use this in a bigger add-on.
