False Windows release

A SoftKey release of Gobliiins on CD-ROM marks it as a product for Windows (the spine and back of the jewel case read "Gobliiins For Windows"), but the contents of the disc are pure MS-DOS.

Music Credit Error

: While the European boxes said "Music and SFX : Moby (Frédéric Motte)", actually there is no music in the floppy (1991/1992) releases of Gobliiins. Moby wrote music for the game during the developement , but it was not used in the release version, despite the boxes and manuals credited him for 'Music and Sound Effects'. Some musics written for and not used in Gobliiins were eventually used in Once Upon a Time: Baba Yaga. Moby created the games SFX and the gobliiins unarticulated 'language', but there is no music in the game in the floppy release.

Charles Callet wrote music for the PC CD-ROM (1993) release of the game which includes dubbing and music.
