Gobliiins
Review 1:
One of the most wanted games of 1991, made by Coktel vision that was
later purchased by a game giant - Sierra. I think this fact proves the
quality of the company and it's games. Goblins is rather unusual
action/adventure. You will get to control three goblins, sent by their
king to find the source of his pain (if I do remember right...it's been 8
years since I played it). In order to progress in the game You will have
to complete certain tasks in just about every room (screen) You enter.
Have fun...

Review 2:

Sweet! This one is one of a kind adventure game. It is very funny and
enjoyable and it is also the first in the Gobli(ii)ns triology. The
Goblins series is another suceesfuly series published by Sierra. The game
is an adventure-based game, but it's built by lots of screens/puzzles.
Each contain a small quest which you finish only with items you find on
the same screen, that makes each screen to a small puzzle. As for the
background, you play 3 silly little goblins - a warrior, a magician, and
a one... who use thing :) To achive things you must combine the abilities
of the three, and use them in funny orders (tip: try to think like a
stupid little creature if you are stuck), these silly goblins will do
things that will make you fall of the chair. The graphics are good, the
sound is ok, but the gameplay is just one of the best i ever seen.

Review 3:

Truly one of the greatest games ever! The King of the Goblins is tortured
via a voodoo-doll. He sends his best men, three goblins each with it's
own ability, to end this. So you're now out with your three cute little
fellas. One is able to use the things you'll find on your way (you can
carry only one at a time), the second one is more the warrior-type - his
ability is to hit (and he hits ev'rything you tell him!), number three in
your team is the magician. His magic works different on each thing, you
let him perform it on. The key to success is good teamwork between the
three. Gobliiins is an Adventure/Puzzle-Crossover. You got to reach one
special goal in each of the screens, but that doesn't mean, they're not
related. Often the reason, why you've got to do something in one screen
shows up one or two screens later. It may not seem so everytimes, but in
general every puzzle is logical and just dependent on using everything
you find plus the abilities of your goblins. Very good game for anyone,
who likes a funny one that makes you think. It has been kind of legendary
back then and it still should be now! One of the best games on my site -
definitely a MUST-CHECKOUT! Review 4: Arguably the best Coktel game ever
made, lead three wacky goblins on a madcap adventure to restore sanity to
the King. The game features wacky but ingenious puzzles, all of which
require well-timed co-ordination among the three goblins, each of whom
has different abilities that must be carefully exploited. Although the
game was billed as an "adventure," it should be more appropriately
labelled as a "puzzle adventure" due to the intensity and sheer number of
puzzles that overshadow the plot. Gameplay is even structured like a
puzzle game: each screen is self-contained, i.e. all items you can get,
except special quest items, are only used in the present scene. One of
the best things about the game is that you are free to try a wide range
of actions; when you use the items inappropriately, the game shows you
the results (usually funny) even though it's the wrong action. This is a
far cry from boring "sorry, you can't do that" response in most games,
and helps make the game a lot more playable and fun. The game gives you a
password for later play after you finish each scene, and there are dozens
of them to go through, each more difficult than the rest. With great
graphics, wacky but logical puzzles and cast of characters, and charming
sense of humor, Gobliiins is a must-have. Just beware that you WILL get
frustrated several times in this one ;)
