App description: Not much has been known about the life of a goblin. Until now. Begin your own empire by helping the goblins build underground caves and dominate the world. To perfect your skills in the goblin's underground workshops, you must understand the system, be quick on your feet, and plan shrewdly. Only the most cunning will successfully construct the goblin empire.

Along your journey be prepared to fend off robbers, get brawny in the blacksmith shops and hone your engraving skills. You'll need strength, bravery, and determination to complete the journey ahead of you.

Enjoy this new take on the time management genre. Help manage the goblin workshop efficiently and satisfy your customers before they get cranky! One miscalculation and you'll get stiffed big time. A few missteps and your dreams of running a goblin empire will be gone forever.

Game features:
Progress your way through a rich story line. Proving yourself in blacksmith and engraving worshops, sweating it out in mine shafts, fighting off enemy hordes, and satisfying every kind of customer are only a few of the adventures you'll encounter. Oh, did I mention roasting rat on a spit? You'll do that too.

Earn new medals and tools on each new level. Watch as your workshop grows and production climaxes into a finger frenzy. Only the best will survive.

Your goblin cave will have equipment to help you accomplish your goals. Among them are your mining machines, a lounge, a blacksmith forge, an engraving room, a barbecue area, and a troll hole. What? Yes, a troll hole. You'll see.

Engaging background music and sound effects bring gameplay to life.

Smooth animation and witty commentary add a personal dimension to goblin personalities.

Each new level will both enlarge and enhance your goblin workshop. How sweet it is when hard work pays off!

10 different types of customers will frequent your workshop. Barbarians, sorcerers, assassins, and more. Each will place a unique demand on your workship. The question is, will you be ready to meet their needs without them loosing their patience?

Leave a trail of blood, sweat, and tears on a total of 49 checkpoints elaborately marked on a your own goblin map.

Goblins thrive on stats. Enjoy a long list of accomplishment as each successful action is tracked automatically for you. Heck, they'll even track some unsuccessful actions!

V1.0 contains 13 unique targets to be reached. Vivid comic illustrations will document each of your accomplishments in all of their glory.

No game is complete without the popular endless mode. Continue your goblin empire to your heart's content once all the levels have been unlocked.

Dig in and get ready for a goblin good time!

I was looking through the new games section in the App Store and this instantly caught my eye. Anyone try it yet?

Honestly, I can't make out anything from the video. This game seems really good but still don't know how is the gameplay.

The art design alone is worth the price of admission on this one. Its a simple game. I am not to far in, but I can see where it will get complicated later on. You have 1 drill in the beginning that can fetch 4 different kinds of ore that are requested by knights on the surface. You bring it to them and they pay you for it based on the time it takes. If you wait till you have 4 payments up top to collect you get a combo bonus from picking them all up at once. There is a lot of other things that go into the process as the game advances. But its simple, cute ( well designed in the art department) and with the high score aspect it becomes a lot of fun. There is also an endless un timed mode.

I suggest it... there is large amount of levels as is, without the endless mode. This is a game that can be picked up and played quickly on the fly.

I love that super limited pallette look. Remind me of a really crisp original Gameboy

I'm eating the game, I want to be a goblin

It's a pretty nice time management game where you touch the place you want to go or to do something.
At the beginning, it's very slow as you have only one customer & one drill but after some levels, you need to be quick to give the right stones/weapons to many customers. The factory wins new elements too, so you have a goblin who makes weapons and you can give rats to the customers so they wait without problems.
For example, a customer asks a black axe, you go to the drill, choose a black stone (the drill finds it), bring it to the blacksmith, ask him a black axe (he builds it) and give the weapon to the customer who gives you money.

Graphics have a nice "old" touch and the interface is really complete (same for the map). When you have 2 stones (one on each hand) and you go to see your blacksmith, you have a menu with your 2 stones which opens another menu with the weapons. I've no problems to choose the good actions and it's totally smooth.
All your stats are on the "trophy" menu, there are achievements and as on many TM games, you have normal/expert scores depending on how much money you win. Some levels are action mini-games (fire on the map), nice with an interesting upgrade of the difficulty.

For the moment (I'm on 3rd part), I'm enjoying the game and I've the feeling that I play something different, funny and well done (but not the biggest game ever ).
