Awakening: The Goblin Kingdom
One of my Favorites!
I had a lot of fun with this game. The graphics are beautiful, the story line was interesting and it was challenging without being frustrating.

Third In The Series
Just passing through on my way to the umpteenth consultation with the WT for this game. (Guess I should have bought the CE after all.)
The Goblin Kingdom is everything the first two were, only harder. Same lilting music, same gorgeous artwork, same cute little pocket dragon, intriguing characters, and an engaging plot. That's the good news.
The bad news is those puzzles are everywhere you look and guard everything you need to get to. Some are within the realm of my intelligence (STD, pipe connections, match 3, ID 2 of a kind, puzzle pieces to reconstruct, tangrams) but there are a lot of those spin- the- wheel- and- everything- shifts- position type puzzles (like the one in the storeroom with the safe and the gem collection mini game at the train station).
Let's just say I'm getting very well acquainted with Ran, the wise and deferential hint owl and setting fire to anything encased in ice with the pocket dragon. Unfortunately, Ran's hints dried up at the maze behind door #2 at the tavern, and that's why I'm on my way to the WT to end my current misery.
The object searches are few and far between and I would hazard a guess the game would have been 18 hours long if more had been included, with me at the controls anyway. This is a well-produced game that has so much going for it, but I just wish they had toned down the number of puzzles a little bit for a better balance. (I mean, do we really need 3 untangle-the-wires in one mini game to extract a bolgin coin?)
Still, it's a beautiful game and except for puzzle overload, one that I've enjoyed playing so far.

Awakening: the Goblin Kingdom
This was a fun game. Puzzles were not too challenging, but fun to complete. I was impressed with the visuals and the sound was relaxing, well done. I was very impressed with a certain water scene where the water reacts with your cursor, as well as a little turtle swimming around...very realistic. The story line was nice, a fantasy in a land of Goblins. I would recommend to those who really like fantasy. The characters were interesting, some even mysterious! I enjoyed the game.

good fun game
Fun game. All the awakenings are about the same. Good fun for the day. The game is quite easy. The HOS are good and some are different for a change. The puzzles are also easy. Has a good flow to it. Lots of clicking and reading which it the down fall for me. Could have had voice over. The hint button works I guess. Do not need it much.

Charming hidden object game
Very satisfying hidden object game with charming goblin characters. The soundtrack is lovely without alot of annoying repetition. This a delightful entry in the Awakening

I really liked this game. This follows the rest of a great series of games. The graphics/scenery I loved, the voice overs were good, the storyline was still there.
Although I love this series, this was the one that didn't hit the right spot with me. I did like the game, but the level of difficulty was a little up there with some of the mini games. The area I had the most trouble was with the munchkins. This can be easily fixed though.
Other than that, it is a great game and I would recommend it.

Adorable, Fun and Not Scary!
Great game that I could play with my daughter! The puzzles were sometimes a bit hard (she loved the tangrams) but the cute owl who gives hints was helpful. Nothing scary, just a lot of beautiful scenery and relaxing music. We can't wait for the next one!

Fairytale atmosphere & fun to play
In Awakening: Moonfell Wood many of us fell in love with the pocket dragon & here he is again, please Mr BoomZap can I have him for Christmas.
This is a really gorgeous game visually, clear bright graphics, delightful artwork & lovely music but boy, do I miss voiceovers for the characters. You get a journal with a task list & a brief resume of what you have encountered to help you & a delightful hint in the form of a mauve coloured owl.
This is a Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure than as mini-games abound & there are not many H0 scenes. I have to say some of the puzzles had me looking at the walkthrough wondering how on earth I was supposed to work out the solution; the help was not always very helpful.
The game has a fairy tale feel like its predecessor & is fun to play.

I really enjoyed it!
A wonderful game. I am an "Awakening" fan so I was waiting anxiously to play this one. The only thing that disappointed me was the rather small duration. I wish it didn't end so soon. Well, let's hope the next one will have a bigger duration. Still, it's a great game.
