Dink has to find his friend Fred.

Storyline: There is not much of a story. It’s about Dink finding Fred, but you are just told that; there is no further explanation.

Map and graphics: No new graphics. The map is really empty; there is not much to see, which is a bit boring.

Music: The music is really good and fits the situation.

Good: The secret is nicely done; it is really hard to find, but once you have found it, the rest of the game is very easy. One entrance to a house is the wrong entrance, but you will enter it anyway and end up somewhere else. I like the savebot right at the beginning, but that is because I always want to save as quickly as possible.

Not so good: Some hardness errors on houses and sprites. I entered a bug, which allowed me to walk of screen. There is not much gameplay.

Overall: A little D-mod that could be improved.
Fit for: If you want to play a short D-mod.

Responsible for making things not look like ass 
If you're looking for a dmod with a good story, this isn't it. This game basically goes one of two ways. One- you find the (not so)secret area with all the golden hearts and mega-potions, or you don't complete the game. I'm not sure if there's really anything I enjoyed about this game.
The map was bland. The monsters were just there. Like there isn't any point to them existing because of all the mega-potions and golden hearts, but hey I guess you have to do something to make finding Fred somewhat of a chore. You can buy a flamebow from some random guy even though that's entirely pointless because in my opinion the sword is much more effective. This game lacks the ability to interest the player. Everything felt as if it was just thrown together without caring how the final product would end up.

.:True of life:.

Plot.Find Dink`s friend Fred, and kill the evil seth.

Gameplay:The dragons and seth are impossible to kill without finding the secret place. And it was pretty boring to play.

Map:Not so well decorated. Actually a crappy map

Bugs, I did find many hardness errors and script freezes.

Graphics:No new graphics

Dink must find his friend Fred. v1.3

Highs: Nice Music and 1 good secret, that if you don't find, Dink will be waundering around forever.

Lows: Nothing much new scenery wise, and no magic, and of course I spent the better part of the game wandering around.

Overall: A nice little Dmod, now that Timo has the bugs ironed out, though I still don't understand the title.

I actually found the secret by doing what the guy said...go into the house and then east. Anyways, small DMOD with a challenging ending. The size of it would not have mattered if instead of a secret, all the screens had challenging opponents in which to up strength, etc. Even with the small size it could have had a more interesting trip to the boss with maybe a smaller secret area. Also, make it harder to get to the boss, find clues and hidden entraces etc. But, for a first try, this was a fun ending. There is promise!

You don't need Cheat, well at least not Ultimate Cheat.
There is ONE secret, and only one. If you can find it, then Seth is just a piece of cake. I "found" the secret by going to editor and figure it out that way. It's still a cheat, though.
The problem is I expected to find the secret behind the rock which says there is an opening behind it OR in the house where you can't get into. That's why I tried to "edit" it myself.
Once I saw where the secret is, I realized that the guy DID tell you where to find it. The only minor problem is that he did not say it correctly so that you can know what he meant.
This is definitely a dmoding practice for the author. All bonus potions, hearts, and golds should have no hardness.
In short, the whole dmod depends on if you find the secret. The game is either too easy or impossible to beat.

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to.I guess. 
Um.. Where to begin..
I know!
*Requires Ultimate Cheat*
Well, a good point was that it was hard. Very hard. How in he!! are we supposed to kill the dragon or the final boss?!?! The attacks make you K.O. and the only possible thing you can buy is more than 5x the money you will have by that point. I would also suggest that you fix some hardness erors, and use some original files, not, cough, copied, cough, ones.
This game then is fairly good, for a first timer, and I like the music.

It's a fantastic ATTEMP to make a D-Mod, however, there are quite some bugs in this game
GRAPHICS - 5: Looks nice enough, but there are too many empty spaces, get's bored.
SOUND - 7.8: In one word: COOL. I like the midis, they fit perfectly in the game. No new sounds though.
GAMEPLAY - 6: Bugs: hardness, spelling errors, you name it. Slso a strange plot, and hard. But fun nonetheless.
LASTING APPEAL - 5: It's a bit short, and as soon as it's over, it's OVER: No replay value.
