Simeon's "Once in a Lifetime" is a small DMod, but it is well done. Dink finds himself on an unknown coast and has to do something while waiting for the next boat.

First of all the map. Not large, but well filled and looks nice. Space is used well, very little hardness errors. A nice little world.

The plot is just like a small DMod should have. It is there, but of course nothing very complicated.
Some new graphics, nice to see the text, not to "listen" to Dink reading it.

Music - what can I say? I used the same in AGAE, they are of the best from 374midis collection.

The little quests are fun, and the wells puzzle takes some thinking. The small DMod is funny too. The end boss might be tougher.

There is a lot of gold, but what can I buy? Afraid not much...

Haven't noticed any bugs.

There is one place where Dink is on the hilltop, a lot of monsters, screen locked - and some monsters may hide behind a bush. So don't go up after pressing a button in the forest.

This DMod is able of giving 40 min of pleasure to any dinker, regardless of personal preferences
(I prefer epic ones, but sometimes like a little nice adventure).

This DMod you definitely must download. It is worth your time to play it. Let's wish Simeon good luck with his next one (hint, Simeon!
