Goblin Dreams is an early 90s shareware style platformer, complete with glorious 16-color EGA graphics.  It's the kind of game you could have found on a 5.25" floppy at your local Waldenbooks back when Sir Mix-a-lot was first professing his love for large behinds and the world was being invaded by vorticons.

Cast:

  • Peelu - Our hero, the Goblin Kingdom's greatest Dream Warrior
  • Blobert - A little blobby guy with big teeth.  One zap can knock him out.
  • Uncle Ant - A quick little ant.  He'll follow you if you get too close.  Two zaps to send him back to the colony.
  • Mr. Shoe - A carnivorous shoe who is dangerously fast.  He must be a running shoe.  It takes three zaps to sock it to him.
  • Polterghost - A spooky ghost who flies around doing spooky ghost things.  One zap busts this one.
  • Big Boss Blobert - The biggest, baddest, blob around.  Nobody knows how many zaps it takes to get to the center of this sucker.

Notes:

This game is currently being released as HTML5 only, and is free.  If you enjoy it, please consider dropping a buck or two in the tip jar so I can make more games like it.  If you hate it, please consider dropping a buck or two in the tip jar so I can make better games.  Oh, and people who tip (regardless of amount) will receive a personal thank you message and maybe even some cheat codes.

And if you ask really nicely, maybe I'll make a few more levels or build a MacOS/Windows/iOS/whatever version for you.
