So if you can overcome some annoying controls, don’t mind a good challenge, and like silly games, then this one is a keeper. It is a different take on the typical adventure game that will leave you a bit frustrated but satisfied when it is finally solved.
In the end Gobliins 2 is a solid puzzle-centric adventure game featuring original game mechanics and wacky puzzles. Of course, it’s not perfect, lacking in more detailed environment descriptions and full-touch controls. A welcome improvement over the original, this timeless classic is sure to charm you into seeing the adventures of Winkle and Fingus to the very end. And the comprehensive built-in hints system makes it easy to recommend to both fans and newcomers to the genre seeking the thrills of the early 90′s.
Family Friendly Gaming
Gobliins 2 makes players exercise their brains. The puzzles in this game require a depth of thought, and depth of item interaction that my poor brain was not connecting. Maybe I was tired. I honestly do not know. I did learn various lessons like how to distract others to acquire items. Those items are used to progress to the next screen. Gobliins 2 is one of those games that can give your brain a dimensional shift in thought patterns. There are some unethical requirements like trying to steal from others.
A la base, Gobliiins 2 est un jeu encore meilleur que le très bon premier Gobliiins. C'est encore le cas sur iPhone grâce aux qualités évidentes du titre, mais aussi grâce à une adaptation plus soignée (moins de bugs) et à une interface plus ergonomique. Qu'ils soient déjà familiers avec l'aventure ou non, les amateurs de point’n click y trouveront donc forcément leur compte.
Ultimately, your enjoyment of goblins 2 will come down to whether you enjoy the undeniably tough challenge. It may not have the finesse of modern day point and click games, but it’s still highly playable and rewarding. However those looking for a simple distraction may do themselves a favour and save their sanity.
Gobliins 2 is a good game at heart, but due to problematic controls (coupled with lots of timed puzzles) and a vast array of incredibly obtuse puzzles, it’s easily eclipsed by other more accessible titles. Fans of the series will no doubt love being able to play through their fond memories on-the-go, but anyone who missed them the first time around will undoubtedly want to compare them to other games in the genre. And that probably won’t go over too well.
