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 The Armory: Gobliins 2 doesn’t squander words. Dialogues are short and mostly meaningless.
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS Inside the Castle: Most of the puzzles must be solved by cooperation of the two characters. While Fingus distracts the Guard by jumping on a tube of mayonnaise, Winkle can snatch his sword.
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 Village: That’s not the way to treat a lady! Even if she is just a fountain. At least our goblin shows embarrassment…
