I think I love this game. It's hilarious. All the interactions just gave me so much pleasure though. There's a broken bridge, the sign next to it says "You need a sword to cross" as if trying to say that getting a sword will either fix the bridge or allow you to walk across water. Or you say, "Hey look a bird" to a guy, he turns around, you steal a map, and then he say, "Well I gotta go" and just walks off the screen. I'm not even sure why I find that funny, I just do. Or the old man who just gives you a health potion and then says, "I must go to quiet place and die now." You really should play it, it'll take like ten minutes tops.

Story: The game itself is unfinished so the story it introduces can't be completed. You're supposed to find a wizard in a park somewhere. The only park is closed and the only way to get to it is to slay a malfunctioning robot slayer. Pretty neat huh? The game pretty much ends after killing the slayer.

Combat: There's three different enemies you fight. Pillbugs- which are super easy. Slimes- which might give you a little trouble. Slayer- Which is a decent challenge.

Map: It's very linearly designed. There's not much detail and the detail they do have is fairly poorly designed.

Music: It didn't stand out much. Though there was the classical piece of music playing when fighting pillbugs. When it began playing I just started laughing at how nonsensical it was. There was a scene in the intro where dink complains about the midi choice and starts the intro over with a different one.

I definitely enjoyed playing this game even though its overall quality was lacking.

The game is all right so far, apart from what connie already said and some hardness errors, like being able to walk through animals and people, I don't think it's meant to be that way.
The game has original and creative elements, like the intro, the radio,...
I'd advise others to download it, and wish you good luck with the making of the rest of the game.

Good things, scenery, easy to get the quest items and the fast boots.

Bad things, can't kill slayer. This not good when one of the first battles is on a locked screen you cannot go any further. None of the slayers in the games get killed by just a sword and a sword and no magic is not enough to get past this screen. Let me put it this way, you might as well go lie down next to the man Pim who the slayer attacked because that is where you will be after trying 5 or more times with just a sword, they call that move DEAD!!

So all the creativity a person puts into making the game goes untested because of this.

Playing the game becomes a skill but the creators of many of these mods seek to defeat the player and that is not good "sportsmanship".

If creators make it to hard for a person to get past the enemy what good is the game.
