DROD is back on HOTU. I'm not sure if this would be considered a press mention, but if it weren't for that HOTU write-up, DROD would not be what it is today.

Sigh, poor Underdogs. I'm glad to hear it's starting to recover after its sundry lobotomies.

Thank you for posting this. If not for HotU, I myself wouldn't have learned about DROD, and who knows how far it would have come otherwise. Thank you, Snacko and zex, for your comments on the site to restore what knowledge has been lost.

Just a heads up: one more perfect review, and DROD will be the highest rated game on the site.

I've posted another review on the page, and while I will be quick to disparage my own review and writing skills, I believe I have given more information and justification for why DROD is a great game.

While I didn't find DROD from Home of the Underdogs, I can certainly understand the role it played in the earlier days and I think praising it more in that sort of public place, further solidifying its top-rated puzzle game status is good.

(I'm at least slightly disappointed now that my review precedes Snacko's and zex's wonderful reviews, which I think are well-done and are probably more succinct and effective at conveying their messages.)
