What is Goblins Problems?

Goblins Problems is a wave-based hack and slash game. You start from wave one and kill a bunch of goblins until you make it to the next wave then wash, rinse, and repeat until you die. It’s currently free with no in app purchases in the Google Play Store.

The game is pretty simple. You play as a knight and you bash the nonsense out of some goblins. They come at you from all directions so each wave is spend essentially spinning in circles and attacking. The mechanics are simple and are almost fun but there are occasional hiccups and button presses that don’t register. That gets frustrating pretty quickly but otherwise everything seems to work as expected.

After each wave you’ll get to use the gold you collected to upgrade your knight. You can upgrade health, defense, attack, and various peripheral stats like critical hit chance. There are also some active abilities like archers that will kill a few bad guys that are in your general vicinity if you start getting overwhelmed. There is also a built-in leaderboard.

This has the bones of a fun, casual hack and slash game. The graphics are decent enough and the mechanics are simple enough but the game just doesn’t have that fullness that others have. Google Play Games services would have been nice for both leaderboards and achievements. Even a rudimentary story line would have helped move things along and motivate the player. As it stands, it’s a great effort for its price and a good game to kill a few minutes but we imagine most will move one before too long. It is free with no in app purchases if you want to try it out.
