The Dink Network

Quest for Cheese (The)

From the author, "First of all, I'll say
that my dmod doesn't have much in terms of a complex and compelling storyline -- which you probably figured from the stupid title. I instead focused on what really makes a good game: good gameplay! I tried to throw in a good mix of talking to people and fighting baddies, plus I added a few extras not found in your average dmod...stuff like multiple subquests, magic (one new spell!(kind of)), and talking enemies. I went nuts scripting stuff, so be sure to talk to/punch everything you see. And I also put in a buttload of secret areas, all of which have some kind of hint so they're not impossible to find. If you want to find every secret (you'll be rewarded for doing that) it may take a couple hours, so this mod's got a bit more beef than what you may be used to. Hope you like it."

Storyline: The author states that this D-mod doesn’t have a complex or compelling storyline but that he instead focused on good gameplay. This D-mod shows that you in fact don’t need a complex storyline to make a good D-mod. All you need is one basic quest and work out that one really good.

Map: Not fancy, but all that is needed, is there.

Graphics: No new ones, except for the title-screen. But the graphics are used in a very unexpected, almost hilarous new way. Very good!

Music: Fits the situation. One thing I particularly liked was the use of music, just like it is done in movies. At some dramatic point the music drops dead… and then, when Dink agrees to accept a new quest, the music starts again. Really good.

Bugs: I didn’t encounter any, not even the one the author describes.

Good: The humour is very, very good. It’s never overdone or too obvious. Even in the readme file there are some funny bits and pieces. The author doesn’t take himself or his game too serious so it seems – and I think that is a good thing. There are many subquests and many secrets to discover. The enemies are really good. The game is fun to play. The graphics are used in a new way. You find suprises on almost every screen.

Not so good: Perhaps that a few tiles don’t blend. It’s the only thing I can come up with…

Overall: An entertaining, funny, suprising and very good D-mod.

Fit for: Everybody. I would say this one is a must-play D-mod.
