You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
I've only played through this Dmod once, but I did enjoy it. So I thought why not write a review?

This is quite an old Dmod, and it's not very 'serious'... it's meant more for comedy I think, and it did comes across well. I liked most of it, but some parts did bore me a little.

This game doesn't have a real compelling storyline to begin with - The story is to find some cheese because the king wants some. After it kicks off though, there are plenty of little stories amongst it that are quite challenging and just all-out fun. I did find some parts a little cheesy(Hehe, how appropriate), and some parts were a little bland, but it kept me entertained for the most part, so that's the main thing I guess.

There weren't really any 'new' graphics, but the graphics were used well, and there were a variety of enemies. Some enemies were quite funny as well, like Harry the Accountant. The mapping was ok, but could have been better in some places, although I think some places were made quite plain on purpose to add to the mood of the Dmod or the paricular scene that was mapped.

Game sounds and music
The music was used well, but the theme used for the main area(the grasslands), was quite repetitive and started to annoy me after a while because it wasn't very interesting. One of my favourite aspects in a Dmod is the sounds and music, and the music in this Dmod didn't impress me as much as I would have liked. I can tell when I really like the music and that I know it fits the scenes in a Dmod, because if this is so, I will often find myself humming it a lot. The sounds were well-used though.

The Quest for Cheese is a good Dmod, which achieved the mood it was going for, but could have been mapped better in some places. There are also a few bugs which could have been fixed(mostly hardness and mapping errors), but I did enjoy it and I would recommend it if you are looking for a funny Dmod to keep you entertained for a while.

Score: 6.7
