Default Goblins Quest Discussion

Has anyone played the game? Funny, memorable, and deep, it was THE game that got me hooked on the genre back in 1994. (Here's a review, btw: http://www.mobygames.com/game/sheet/gameId,2870/) I tried Gobliiins Quest but there's a grating sound whenever I try to play it.

I haven't read anything about the game anywhere so I was wondering what everybody thought of the series.

i have all 3 of the goblins games. 3 is definately the best, as it is the funiest and has the best graphics. Goblins 2 had the best storyline (if there ever was 1) and goblins 1 was just a joke

Ah, those games were brilliant. I loved Woodruff and the Schnibble of Azimuth too. Too bad Coktel isn't around anymore.

All 3 goblins games was great. The second had hardest puzzles. the third was more easy, but without playing the second you'll miss something there. The first one was very nice and originall.

Yeah, one of the most original games and THE best game by Coktel for sure. But, IMO, it was harder than the 2nd one.

Goblins Quest people -- if I enjoyed Goblins 3, what other quirky adventure games would you recommend that is just as good or even better?

I have fond memories of the third one, the others I never finished. Also, what the hell is Icy Tower? EDIT: Never mind, don't answer that.

EDIT # 2: I really like the mechanics of these games. They are not as much adventures as they are cool puzzle mazes. Does anybody know any more games of that ilk?

You can try Ween: The Prophecy it is 1st person, but with similar spirit.

*Sigh* I'd really like to play Goblins again, unfortuantly I can't get my Goblins 2 CD to run under Dosbox, on my Win ME computer. Of course, I have .60, but that's because .61 doesn't run on Win Me.

Like Zanthia said, Prophecy - it's really the closest game to Goblins series. Also you can try other games by Coktel: Woodruff (really wacky), Lost in Time (make you brains cry), Bargon Attack (more of tradition adventure), Fascination (rather good), and, maybe, Inca series (though it's more of action/Myst gybrid, but some of the puzzles in the 1st game are just wonderful). If you have a lot of courage, you can try Urban Runner, but I won't suggest you
Apart from that another wacky adventure is Neverhood from DreamWorks (though it's not exectly Coktel style). It's a pity there wasn't any Coktel-like games. Maybe Lost Vikings, but it's not adventure at all.
