Storyline: Dink is married to Libby. One day, Dink wants to check on Milder, and so he does. Only this time Milder is the pig farmer and Dink plays the role of Milder. But they end up in a world that is torn apart and Milder dies. Dink is transported to a place where a wizard tells him that the ancients spoke about what had happened a long time ago. And also about a hero. That hero is Dink of course, and he has to save the world.

Map and graphics: Although the map is huge, it is nicely detailed everywhere, it does not have any open spaces and it never gets boring – something that is quite unique. There are many new graphics, such as the runes, and the robots. Some are done real good, others a bit less, but they all are quite realistic.

Music: The music is outstanding.

Good: This is quite an impressive D-mod! There is really good humour in it, such as the scene with the goblins who kill each other in search of a traitor. But also scenes where you can choose what to do, such as where you can lay down the sword on the knight’s grave – or not. And some things I have never seen done before in a D-mod, such as the scene with the river, which is really impressive. And it has a real good storyline, as well as good gameplay and you can do some real nice adventuring.

Not so good: I could not get passed the rock: it turned out I had to morph into a slime, but I morphed into a bonca. The game is real tough in the beginning, although later on, when you levelled up, it gets easier. I could not get some of the magic to work at first, such as the freeze magic, and had to replay that part.

Overall: A very good D-mod.

Fit for: Everyone who wants to play a good adventure.
