Finally Lilg and I are back again with the long awaited sequel to Griswold the Goblin. It's been a long journey for us, with many setbacks, sidetracks and almost a year of development.

In this first chapter of this new on going saga called "Islands of Fire" you must help Griswold find the Goblin City. You will have to collect many items, solve puzzles, play several mini games and even navigate a labyrinth to help Griswold in this new epic adventure.

Lot's of thanks must go to all the people who tested the game and to Tom Fulp for all the help he's given us!

Awkward

The game is a little dissapointing. The voice acting is great, the graphic style is great, the concept is great. However without the walkthrough, seeing as there are no tooltips or hints you havent a clue what to do without reading the walkthrough. For example, who is going to think to combine the mug with the fishing rod? Or use the handtool to find the jar behind the tree? It's a promising game, but if you have to spend a year mousing over everything with the handtool, and then guessing where to put what, or read the walkthrough spoiling it anyway, then theres little pleasure gained from playing the game.


Phantasmagor responds:

Well there are clues all throughout when you play that hint you towards the things you need to do. Most people have complained the game is far too easy so... Also you can see the jar sticking out beside the tree so you know theres something to pick up. With logical thinking most puzzles in the game can be solved

What can I say...

To be honest, I'm a little bit dissapointed. Since most of the reviewers liked it, you'll probably ignore me but still...

But don't get me wrong, I can see a lot of work put into the game and I always appreciate that. It has bright, somewhat eye-relaxing and detailed art. The music and sounds were decent. The voice acting was fine...

But the whole of Griswold needs some serious touch I think. I mean like, tell us more about the universe! Expand it! Try to make your world unique! Because at the moment, it looks like a very cliche fairy tail with a very cliche goblin as the protagonist.

Take a look at Leafworthy's 'Khale' for instance. Although it is a movie, look how much work was put in every deatail of enviroment, and how much we know about the world the main hero lives in from just 2 episodes and a trailer.

Keep improving! I'll definitely keep an eye out for future chapters! Good luck to ya mates!

Thats coming in later games. We didn't want to use all our material in just one chapter. The next game will reveal a whole lot more about the plot. The world that Griswold lives in and reveal more about Griswold himself. This game was just something small and simple to introduce people to the world I suppose. We could have put a lot more detail in but we sorta ran out of time/inspiration. Next game promises to be greatly improved :) thanks for the review

WHAT

NOOO Griswold's not sinister as he used to be. Or as gobliny. You changed him. Other then that great game.

Phantasmagor responds:

We too feel like he was lacking that same feel as he did in the original. We're thinking of changing his appearance a bit in the sequel and revealing his sinister ways more. Thanks for the review

Good game

I thought the game was a very good point and click adventure.
One thing is though you said at the beginning you it was on a strange and distant world but you said the ship was of the civil war era. It's just a little continuity error. Things like that bug me but I bet nobody else cares.

good game otherwise.


Phantasmagor responds:

2 points of interest here:

1.) The reference to the ship was a tribute to the movie Anchorman.
2.) Even if it wasn't a reference to Anchorman, there have been more then one civil war throughout history.

(Addition by Casper)
Who's to say this it wasn't some kind of civil war that took place in this strange and distant world?
