Awakening: The Goblin Kingdom
Challenging and fun
It is an excellent time passer while my daughter is doing her homework at the library. It took me one trip for each chapter. That's how I knew she was about ready for a break.

Third game in a good series
In this game, third in the series, Princess Sophia has been on a journey to find her people. She explores places in the Goblin Kingdom and is helped by goblins she encounters along the way. Each goblin gives her a problem to solve, and when she does she receives an important item. She also has the help of an owl (hints) and a dragon (fire). In playing the game you encounter puzzle after puzzle, all of which must be solved. There are different levels of play, however, and in the easier level there is a quickly loading "skip" button which you may use if you are stumped. There are a few hidden object scenes, but many more puzzles. This is a beautiful game, logically laid out, and not too difficult.

Not very challenging but okay.
I tried this as something new, but it was a bit too simple for me. Sweet story line and characters. Good graphics.

Variety, fun, and interesting storyline
I really like these games. The challenges are varied, so it isn't a bunch of hidden object games only. Plus, the storyline is diverse and sweet. Not creepy or weird, just a fun fantasy story. Pretty girly with lovely graphics.
Overall, one of my favorite series on Big fish so far. Keep them coming!

Good beginner game
- We found that most of the puzzles were very easy, only a few challenging, but a wide variety.
- Medium amount of HOG's.
- Very nice graphics, nothing inappropriate.
- Same music throughout, kinda reminded us of Willy Wonka, got a little annoying after awhile.
- Functionality worked great.
- Rate as T for some references to drugs/alcohol, otherwise this could of been a great game for a younger audience too.
- OK story line, I think it had some holes in it that could of made it great, it seems like it was written for a younger audience.

Not as good as Moonfell Wood, unfortunately.
I hate giving this a lower rating than the previous installments since I really love this series as a whole but I can't help it. In my opinion, it's just not as good overall. Yes, the story proceeds in a natural flow but I was really hoping that it would wrap up only to learn that it's still not over! Three parts to a story seem to be the logical way to go and anything more than that just seems like the devs are milking it for all they've got. I don't know if I'm that interested in buying the conclusion as I wasn't that impressed with this installment.
I expected the puzzles to get harder and that's a good thing because they were challenging enough and I liked them. Maybe it's because I was so enchanted with the whole woodland experience in Moonfell Wood with its bluish colors and animated outdoor scenes that I became disenchanted with the scenes depicting frozen train stations and the many goblins lurking about. I don't know for sure but this game just felt different to me. I still liked it enough to buy it after playing the trial but even then it felt different and I waited until a half off sale to buy.
The pocket dragon is back but to a much lesser degree so that was disappointing but we do get to meet Ran the owl. He's painted in subtle shades of purple and it's cute when he goes to sleep after giving a hint. It shows him breathing with his head nodding off. Sadly, it's not enough to get me fired up about this installment and I'll be glad to see this series end with the next game. I'll still recommend the Goblin Kingdom because the series is great overall and offers the kind of gameplay that many people are looking for and this game offers it too.

A good game but ...
I didn't like this episode in the Awakening trilogy as much as Moonfell Wood. The graphics weren't as crisp and the storyline fell short.
There are mini games on top of mini games. You have to play a mini game to complete most tasks.
I was getting bored by the end of the game and was glad when it ended which is the opposite of Moonfell Wood. It felt like the developers just wanted to be done with the trilogy and move on.
The music was beautiful and I recommend this game on the basis of finishing the trilogy.

Waiting on the next installment
Really enjoyed this installment of the Awakening series. Came looking for the next one, but apparently not out yet.

I have enjoyed the games until now. I am stuck on the fish hook. I cannot grab it. I have quit and gone back several times and no luck. I have completed ALL of the mini-games, Does anyone have an answer for this? I have gone to the forum specifically the one re the fishhook.

Best of the series
I have played all the games in the series and I felt this was the better of them. It kept my interest more throughout the game and the flow of the game was smoother than the others.
Puzzles were fun and had enough of a challenge that you didn't want to cheat. Yet they are not too difficult that you get turned off by them.
My kids love to sit and play the games with me and this was a good one for them.
It is a solid game.
