The last game in Coktel's puzzle adventure series is a very disappointing title that's not worthy of the name. As the title suggests, you control only one goblin this time around since there is only one "i" in the title. The absence of co-ordination puzzles is made up by the sheer amount of puzzles and increased difficulty -- so much so that the game is near impossible to solve without hints or a lot of patience. |
What makes the game very frustrating is a number of puzzles that you simply cannot solve without a lot of trial-and-error. For instance, in the second scene you must get through several bad guys. The only way to do that is to randomly try each item you have on each guy until one works -- each guy needs one particular item, but there is no way to deduce which one. No clue whatsoever. If you're a masochist, have a lot of free time on your hands, or want to burn your brain cells at a faster rate, then Goblins 3 might be for you. The rest of us are advised to stay away and play the first 2 games in the series instead.
