I had a slight feeling of deja vu while playing this game. This is probably because I've played it before, albeit some ten years ago. Simply replace the 'D' in Dink with an 'L' and you have the main character from the SNES classic Zelda, and indeed the comparison between the two games is evident as much in terms of gameplay as game titles. In similar fashion to Zelda (or Diablo if you want a more modern comparison), you control a would-be warrior across a vast fantasy landscape. You are given a sword and some magical powers to assist you in your efforts to rid the world of the kind of evil goings-on that always seem to plague games like this.
Graphically, Dink is nothing to write home about, and it's no great shakes in terms of gameplay, either. I challenge anyone to play Dink for more than a few hours without getting completely bored. Worse still are the many graphical glitches you'll come across. At one point I got completely stuck in the landscape for no apparent reason.
Dink!s one saving grace is its humour, which can often be entertaining, although not entertaining enough to make you want to put up with the game's many problems. Avoid.
