The Dink Network

Creeping Sands (The)

"A short romp - that sorta turns into a quest. Dink is summoned by King Daniel to find out why the world is becoming a desert. This DMOD started out as being a project I wanted to spend only 24 hours on. Basically start it one night and have it finished the next. I didn't make it. Bugs (hopefully all the really nasty ones are killed now) and the desire to add new graphics (so shoot me, I can't help myself) meant it took just over 72 hours. Mind you this was not non-stop."

Storyline: The world is turning into desert and Dink has to stop this.

Map and graphics: The map is done nicely. Lots of details and new tiles. New graphics too; some are from SOB, but the end boss is new and looks not only funny but also very good. You can burn the cacti, which is a nice change to the trees. The title screen is very good.

Music: The music fits the different kind of situations. There are new sound effects in this D-mod, which is always very good, since so few D-mods have sound effects, let alone new ones.

Good: The tiles and graphics make up a very nice desert scenery. The beginning of Dink’s end dance is very good and plain hilarious, but it takes too long and the boobies and slurpers do not add much. There are plenty of goodies and secret areas.

Not so good: The not-so-good part can also be the good part, depending on what you like: this D-mod is all about fighting. If you like to just fight, then this D-mod is the one for you, but if you like some adventuring, good gameplay and some puzzles, then you will not like this game. I would like to have seen more of those, and not just fighting so you can level up to do some more fighting so you can level up to defeat yet another, stronger monster.
The monsters are way too strong and there are not enough of them to level up rather quickly so you spend a lot of time waiting until they appear again on screen. The knights are ridiculous strong and they will kill you just touching them.
I got stuck in the castle due to incorrect hardness.

Overall: A D-mod with beautiful graphics and tiles, but too much fighting to my liking.

Fit for: If you like action.
