About

A comedy puzzle platformer where you play as a goblin trying to escape from a team of greedy adventurers. Handcrafted levels with delightful pixel art and carefully programmed interactions: climb walls, hang from chains, push barrels onto the heads of your enemies, lure them into traps with the promise of gold coins… Goblins & Grottos comes with a built-in campaign, starting with the death of your family and following your progress through dungeon levels until you reach the surface world and journey through the forest, the town and the mountain as you try to track down your family's killer. While the adventurers level up and get better equipment and skills, the goblin does not. That’s hardly fair is it? And all they seem to care about is the amount of xp they’ll get by killing you! A core part of the game is the built-in level editor and online sharing facility. Build your own levels, share them with the world, and play other people’s levels! Define the traps, puzzles, and adventurers in your level.. define their skills and what chat they say as things happen to them. You can even add a story to your level through the other creatures, scrolls and books you put in it, and through the game's powerful cutscene-editing system. Features: Reverse the normal roles and play as the goblin rather than the adventurers Revenge the death of your family Explore dungeons, forests and castles filled with fiendish puzzles, traps and greedy adventurers Make your own game maps and puzzle mechanics, and share them online Create your own cutscenes and stories Play the built in campaign plus maps and stories shared by other players Enjoy an epic soundtrack and game audio Eat muffins!

Goblins and Grottos reviews and comments

Translated by

Early Access Review seemingly trivial Game but that hides a strategic depth and a background originality really hard to ignore. From the earliest minutes it is impossible not to notice what is the actual value of the experience and this not only in the face of the goodness of the stages of platformer, but above all observing the complexity of many environmental puzzles. And mind you, complex, but never frustrating. And considering the easygoing and goliardic style given by the development team at every stage of the game, the fun is assured, especially thanks to the possibility to realize even its own levels through a very good invoice editor. In Short, a game certainly to keep an eye on! ;)

the game is still in early access the Visual in pixel art will not appeal to all the world but is nice without being tiring in the long time the universe of the MMORPG well transcribed by the dialogues of the Knight, Mage... the regulars of the genre will feel like a fish in the water! the fact of playing a fragile Goblin pushes us to infiltration and to think how to use the scenery to reach our end the text police can sometimes be complicated to read many Easter eggs, everywhere, really... from start to finish we explore the levels to discover the muffins as much as the Easter eggs community content is in place with the workshop and lengthens the lifespan the game is promising but to see how it evolves. for now it's a Yes for my part https://youtu.be/KbiJP5E0qEs

Yes, the idea that generates the whole thing is original, and the trailers are inviting, but that's where the positives end up. Here are particularly relevant things that I noticed: 1. The controls are drawn in a very BAD way. Developers would have to take example from other stealth games with climbing-wall components. One of all, Mark of the Ninja, who manages to give fluidity and naturalness of commands to situations of frenetic improvisation. Not. The controls in this game are drawn so badly that even picking up an object from the ground will often require commitment. Pulling a lever while holding an object in your hand may be difficult. We may have to lay it down. Launching the same object with minimal precision is not even conceivable, yet sometimes we are asked. 2. Puzzles are non-existent, because the mechanics of the game are non-existent. There Are platform games that, although not designed to be puzzle games, have such mechanics that allow you to indulge in creating more complex puzzles. (Broforce as an example) Here everything is limited to guessing which active lever such as trapdoor, and show a minimum agility in dodging objects in free fall. It all ends there. 3. There's humor nerd, yes. In Addition to the constant parody of D&D, there are parodies of Leroy Jenkins and quotes to Monty Python etcetera etc. But Honestly, they are so grossly proposed that they can't even make me smile.
