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.


Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS The Forge: Fingus hitches a lift on the big spoon of the angry monster.
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon DOS The Map: Winkle and Fingus have been shrunk and explore the contents of a desk.
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 Bottom of the Sea: Your journey takes you almost everywhere, e.g. to the bottom of the sea, into strange dreams, to hell. You name it! Come to think of it: logic or causality aren’t winners in the land of Gobliins 2. But fun is!
