Gobliins 2 on iPhone/iPod Touch

Hi all,

Gobliins 2 is coming to iPhone very very soon This thursday to be precise.


DotEmu worked a lot to improve a lot controls. In this episode you need a lot of accuracy. That's why they chose to keep a cursor to have the best accuracy possible. They also added all the solutions in the hints. 3 levels:
#1 an advice,
#2 a clue,
#3 the solution.

Storyline and original stupid puzzles are the same as in the 90's

We hope you will enjoy it.
The game will be launched at a special price for the beginning : $0.99

We can't wait to have your opinion on that one.

Mm, I wasn't very impressed with the remake of Gobliiins 1 to be fair, so I think I'll give this one a miss. Sorry to flame, I just don't think some games stand the test of time very well.

Flashback, Sensible Soccer or Cannon Fodder would be far more worthy of resurrecting imho.

Flashback is already on the AppStore, came out over a year ago.
As much as I love that game, the controls on idevices is just killing the game for me. The original FB had hard controls to learn, but on my iPhone/iPad they're just ridiculously hard to master...

Cannon Fodder would be great though!!

I bought Gobliins 1, but just couldn't get into it.. I don't think it's the port itself, I don't think I would have liked the original game either, which I never did try.
At the time I was hoping it would be similar to the old pc game Vikings, but, alas, it wasn't....

Yay, part 2! Instabuy for a buck!

I hope you're doing part 3 as well?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
