Okay, this was one of the Evil Hero DMod contest entries... Just so you know it.

Story: You play Dink, and you're feeling like a rascal, hence the title, and it's your goal to make the two villages hate eachother. It ends in a large bloodbath. You must do something when being a rascal, right?

Graphics: Part of the graphics were just modified Dink-graphics, but the new ones really fit well with Dink. There were new dead people, "secret-duck-island"-house interiors and new inventory item graphics.

Sounds: All classic sounds, which was weird, but also these fit the theme well in their own way, but they could be slightly better.

Special: The mozart-game, as I call it. Too bad there's a bug in this one, so not all knights say their text. Without looking at the code, it's almost impossible. Also, when coming at a certain screen, Dink will say it's 'status'. This was funny, because if you talk to the save-machine, he'll say what he want to become.

Bugs: A lot, but it's only a beta-version. The most irritating were when simply talking to someone, the game freezes, the mozart-game-bug and the one at the end. I looked at the code, but these can easily be fixed, so the next version should be really bug-free

Overall: A fun game if you're got some time left. Too bad there are many bugs, and sometimes it isn't clear what you have to do. I'll give it 7.0 because of the bugs and some sounds... And because I want to be able to give the full version a higher score.
