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.

[edit] Keyboard Controls

This table lists the controls for the computer versions of Dink Smallwood. Note that these may be a little different depending on which versions you're using. Also note that DMOD developers may remap these keys and use them for an entirely different purpose.
