    GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
     
    Playing The Awakening series back to back, you notice something not otherwise immediately obvious: that with The Goblin Kingdom, the series suddenly became more sophisticated on several levels simultaneously. 

    The always beautiful art suddenly becomes stunning, with better definition and animation, and more “liveliness”. I noticed too that some of the close up scenes resemble concept art in their broad-strokes style. Interesting.

    With this new art comes a graver, darker story, with an actual bad guy, and the introduction of politics. Less cozy fairy tale atmosphere and just a sprinkle of the Brothers Grimm. To the betterment of the story, I point out, as it has lost a little of its schmalz, and adults can now play it without excuses. J

    Finally, the game play is dramatically more difficult. I skipped more than half the puzzles – but maybe I was just tired. Tangrams are tougher than Solitaire and Mahjong as well.

    I recommend this game!
