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.

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 Village: That’s not the way to treat a lady! Even if she is just a fountain. At least our goblin shows embarrassment…
