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.
Goblins and Grottos is a puzzle platformer that changes things up by having you take on the role of a goblin trying to track down the paladin who killed your family. The story also takes place inside of a video game where you will run into different characters of different levels who talk to each other as if they are playing a game and references to different MMO games and events. The art is simple and appealing done in a style somewhat similar to early 90s PC platformers. Gameplay will have you making use of traps, the environment, and weapons to create paths through the maps and to kill your enemies. I'm not usually a fan of puzzle games and movement is a little slow to me but it is satisfying to use the traps correctly and the game looks good and can be funny. A big part of the game is to make and share you own maps or to play the creations of others.
