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 Cutscene: Between levels, such screen advance the truly irrelevant story. Here our heroes decide to visit the besieged castle.
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 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 Armory: Gobliins 2 doesn’t squander words. Dialogues are short and mostly meaningless.
