|Gobliiins is a unique, colorful and fun to play puzzle game with some adventure features, originally developed in 1991 by Coktel Vision for the DOS and MAC systems and, a year later, for the Amiga and the Atari ST/E home computers.|
STORY / GAMEPLAY
King Angoulafre is attacked by an evil entity, armed with a voodoo doll and a bunch of pins. As the pins are stucked in, the king starts jumping up and down on his seat. Three of the Kingdom's favorite goblins, Oups, Ignatius and Asgard, are called to help their King so they set off travelling in unknown and hostile lands to seek and find items that can help their rescue mission. This trio of goblins can be instructed based on their abilities. Pointing and clicking orders them to perform certain activities as you attempt to progress. Oups is a clever one and can pick up, drop or use objects! Asgard is the strongest and can only punch. Ignatius (the elder one) is a small Merlin (the wizard) and casts spells on specific items with interesting results. So, using their unique powers, your ultimate goal is to escape from each scenario and find a collection of potions. The gameplay turns into to a charade of trial and error. Some stages are relatively easy while some others are almost impossible to cope with! Truly, sometimes the solution is not necessarily logical and thus trial and error process is a default! Also, occasionally the goblins do not always respond and react exactly as you ordered them to. Once assigned a task, a goblin cannot be stopped or diverted until the task is carried out. So yes, although its interesting scenario and gameplay, Gobliiins may get too frustrating at times.
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The game's graphics on the Amiga are great with a few nice cartoon-ish touches though everything is drawn with only up to 16 colors. This is rather awkward for an Amiga game I think since its half the default 32 simultaneous colors. The sprites are beautifully animated and they look so funny while each scene is nicely drawn, without any impressive touches or special effects. Most of the game's backdrops are static and the sound is rather poor for the Amiga and includes only a few introductory tunes and sampled spot effects during gameplay.
