How to play
Dink Smallwood has a variety of different control methods depending on which edition and controllers you may have. The control scheme may be a little confusing as the main title screen indicates for you to use the mouse which is never used at all in the actual game. Usually one will use the keyboard (or the joystick on compatible editions) to move the player character around.
