:: The Goblin ::

Quite simply put, this is a remake of an old game by Dan Goff published in Compute! magazine for the C64 way back in 1983. It was a type-in program written in basic if my memory serves me right. You played as weird looking little goblin who eats smiley faces in a block maze. Back then as a kid I was intrigued by the simplicity and yet originality of this game. So.. Naturally I ended up making another remake of this action mini game several years later for H+Soft Arcade.. The Goblin, he only comes out on Halloween night in a dark forest to feast on jack-o-lanterns. You must guide him safely down the maze of trees to eat all the sad yet fear stricken jack-o-lanterns. You can collide with (or eat) a total of 3 trees before dying and ending the game, making the jack-o-lanterns smile with relief.
