Lots of fun!
Dink Smallwood is easy to control. The graphics and sound are good. The character backgrounds and story are interesting. The humor is great. There are loads of add-ons (Dmods) available on the Dink Network. But, the best part in my opinion, is the ability to develop and publish your own episodes/chapters in the form of self-made Dmods. If you know something about C+ and vb or java scripting then developing for this game will come very easy. First I enjoyed playing the game. Then I tried out the included Dmods. Then I pulled down some more Dmods and enjoyed those. Finally I decided to have a look at doing some of my own customizations and discovered "DinkC", a C+-like language that is very easy to manipulate. I have now completely customized my Dink Smallwood games on my Mac, PC and iPad. Lot's of fun!

A classic PC adventure, still fun today :)
This game is not perfect, a bit rudimentary and wonky in some ways, but boy is it fun if you can put up with it. I never finished the main quest in the past, so playing all the way through here was extra sweet. And it looks like rtsoft opened the floodgates, and now we have access to many dink mods (user-created worlds) right from the mobile app! If you really fall in love with this game you can even develop your own content and submit it, although I think that would require a PC.

Best game for iPhone!
Hi I’ve never written a review before; I dunno who made this game but it’s the best game in the iPhone. I dunno how I found it, it’s fun me funny and mystical somehow with that little gnome wizard guy. I don’t play any other game on iPhone ever or even text people, this game gives me a reason to use my phone. :)

Almost perfect
Tried every which way I can think of but for whatever reason the gamevice app says it’s supported. However the Icade function in dink refuses to stay on and detect my remote when attached. Very disappointed as I love dink Smallwood and played it all the time on pc. Would have loved it on my phone. Please developers fix this issue would love to see the compatibility fixed for gamevice.

Love it!
I played Dink And all the mods I could find years ago on the computer. I still have them on a disk. I was really excited when I found it for my iPad! I've played the main game and Agatha's Will. I'll play the rest that are on here and I hope there will be more mods available!

Cute game from childhood
Dink Smallwood (originally called "Nobody Burns My Dog") is a great game from my childhood growing up in the 90s, made by legendary BBS game producer Seth Robinson (creator of Legend of the Red Dragon). Dink is a short game thats relatively easy to play and beat. The port is a little difficult to play on the iPad, but it plays great on M1/M2-equipped Macs. Highly recommend!

Thank you for adding iCade support! First review: Well worth the $3, I've played this game off and on since the 90's it's a great, no problems with the controls so far. The only thing I can think of that would make this game better is if you added support for the iCade.

Best iPad game, hands down.
I used to play this game as a kid. And now it has been resurrected as an iPad app. It's amazing. Controls are smooth, no glitches from what I've found. About 8 hours of gameplay if you don't rush. I got about 7 hours out of it.

Works well on mobile
*Note* The Pilgrims Quest D-mod cannot be completed towards the end of the game. The game does not detect the F key on iOS for some reason, and Dink cannot leave the Robot.

It could be better
The controls aren't that good. Your finger blocks active parts of the screen. It's slow & grindy to level up & get money. I'm currently stuck in a graphics glitch in Kersin and can't progress or move? A little polishing & balancing would make it a fun game. I'm suspect of some of the very positive reviews here.

A great remake!
This game is a remake of an old PC RPG game and is a lot of fun to play. There are two different control options(d-pad and touch) to choose from, both work well. The graphics are very pretty and the music fits the game. This is a quality remake that should appeal to anyone who likes RPGs.

Cool, classic. But really SLOW
I don't remember Dink being so slow? Leveling is nothing short of tedious. You begin almost powerless and die if a beetle sneezes in you general direction, and finding money to buy the one and only Long Sword is absurdly difficult. That is if you don't buy anything to heal you. There are very few quests, and I am currently running in circles grinding away killing bugs. The save portals are few and far between and the Quick Save function serves no purpose at all. It saves nothing. Normally a game this flawed would deserve no more than 2 stars, but I gave 4 because it's a classic. But somehow the developers failed to hit the target by a great margin. I hope they will update Dink soon with some fixes that will make this more than a nostalgic novelty, and an actually fun, playable game.

Great port, a few minor issues
Dink Smallwood is the definition of a cult classic RPG. It has been out 13 years and people continue to play it and expand in it using the game's toolkit. The sarcastic humor is still refreshing after all this time. This is one of the better engine ports I have seen, and it translates well to Apple devices. That said, a few minor issues. The navigation is flawed, the directional keypad is just a little too small on the IPhone, and the swipe controls are so sensitive they are useless. Also, one of the great things about this game is the community content. The ability to load and play DMods would be very much appreciated.

Needs reform
I was deeply annoyed to discover that when you die you can't go back to the latest autosave but instead have to go back to the last manual save point, which for me was two days ago. I'm just not sure I want to go back and do that stuff again. I can't say I much enjoyed the humor either. If childish awkwardness and mildly graphic wife beating are your cup of tea, you might like this. For me I found the clumsy attempts at humor, especially with regards to women, off-putting. The rivalry with the other village oaf was amusing, though.

Please fix the iPhone controls
Great rendition of the original game! I've had some very frustrating issues with the controls, however (iPhone 4, current iOS). It's hard to control Dink, sometimes going to another screen or between objects. Needs a few bug fixes that way. I know it's not easy to do, but hope you will. Thanks!

If you are into rpg's, this definitely adds something new and fresh to the formula. Combat is very engaging and controls are great. Go buy it!

Almost great
Navigation is awful. Graphics not bad but the screen moves is blocks of territory when you reach the edge and it's really annoying. Got bored and stuck after 20 minutes. Spend another week of dev. making this fow better and you'll have a good game.

Great memories
This app gives me great memories of college when I first played it. Snarky humor with a Diablo-esque feel. Would give it five stars but the Furball D-mod is extremely buggy. The main game is still exceptional!

Good game.
I remember a long time ago playing the story and also tried to make a dmod. It's a good, fun rpg. I can't stand the controls for some reason though. Not like the old fashioned keystrokes.

Classic gaming goodness!
If you played it in the PC you will love it and forget the terrible implementation of the controls. But that is the major problem with all apps and just a touch screen. If you have never played it, look elsewhere for you "tap" type games.

I'm having a great time playing this game. However, it's frustrating because occasionally Dink get stuck "in between screens"! I don't know how else to describe it. Sometimes he won't budge and other times I can walk him around but he encounters obstacles obviously from another screen. Weird. I tried turning the game off and returning to it but he always remains stuck. I have to reload a previously saved game which is annoying since the save machines are not so close and I haven't always recently saved. Please fix this!
