Description

The second in the series of adventure-puzzle games. In this installation, you only have two imps to control instead of three.

Someone has kidnapped the prince and it's up to you and two hilarious sidekicks, Winkle and Fingus, to rescue him. Winkle is a reckless jokester, while Fingus is careful and has a gift for solving puzzles. Luckily, they're blessed with extraordinary vitality. In other words, they never die. That'll sure come in handy when you're up against Wily Wizard's traps, maniacal monsters, and twisted and perplexing puzzles.

Screenshots

Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS A Dream: Many locations are colourful and more than a little strange. In this screen the two heroes have to get the musicians to play their tunes and then catch the melody with a flycatcher.
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS The Trench: Goblins aren’t sensitive. Most puzzles are about whacking or smashing, or hitting someone with something, or exploding someone as in this case. The stone guard has a short life expectancy.
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS The Wizards House: The game lives mainly from simple slapstick gags. Don’t rush to conclusions, though. Some of them are hilarious!
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS The Throne room: The evil demon lord (the ugly one, ahh… in center of the picture) is called Amoniac. Watch out, he smells!
