- Gobliins 2: the prince buffoon -

Coktel vision made loads of adventure games and many of them were fairly serious affairs, the gobliiins series however have weird and wacky humor and a cartoon feel about them. The thing all of the games had in common though was the difficulty of the puzzles. This time the king's son is kidnapped and a wise man had said that two heroes will stand up and face the road ahead to find and return the prince. You play the role of both these heroes as their journey begins.

The two heroes and called Fingus, a regular goblin, and Winkle, a purple skinned creature. Both of them will have to work together to solve the puzzles because some items can only be used by one of them and often you will need to activate an item while the other uses it. You start of in a small village consisting of only three screens at first. There are plenty of items that you can find on the screens but many are not accessable because you need to find items or do something before you can get them. An example is getting the bottle next to the two old men, when Winkle tries to grab the hanging sausage he gets hit by it making the oldies laugh. Fingus can then quickly grab the bottle while they are distracted and use it to solve another puzzle. Once you solve a number of puzzles you can usually go into another area increasing the items and puzzles once more.

The game looks and feels a lot like the first game where you controlled three goblins, the graphics haven't improved much but the cartoon style is still very nice especially the little animations that many of the characters do when using items. The sound is another thing, the characters all talk but in a weird high pitch and certainly not understandable but it makes for quite a nice feature. Once again you get three jokers to help you get on in the game but don't waste them because you can't get any new ones.

Gobliiins which was the first game and strangle had three I's in the title was a great game and this one altough a lot like it is also great. The puzzles can be overwelming at times but the limited number of screens available to you at one time should limit that slightly at least. You'll have to think out of the box and use both characters though because don't expect all of the puzzles to be straightforward. This game is definately worth playing so give it a go.

Overal rating: 8/5/10

The lack of colors is really visable here compared to the DOS version, the loading times don't do the game much good either.
