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 From the intro: Little Prince Buffoon has been kidnapped; you have to rescue him. That’s not going to be a easy task, since there are countless obstacles in your way and the little Prince is stupid, stupid, STUPID!
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!
