Kids vs. Goblins is an upcoming tactical action RPG being developed by Stolen Couch Games and being published by Crescent Moon. The crux of the gameplay revolves around controlling the 3 different main characters in the game and utilizing each of their unique sets of magic spells. There will be more than 80 spells in the game, and different situations that arise as you travel across the 7 locations in the game will call for the use of specific spells or tactics.

Stolen Couch has said in our forums that they took a cue from Mika Mobile’s Battleheart [$2.99] in regards to controls in Kids vs. Goblins, with what appears to be a similar line drawing-esque approach to moving and dishing out commands. Since Battleheart is one of the finest games around, I fully endorse this decision. It also employs similar real-time combat, and I’m looking forward to seeing just how deep the magic system is and how extensive the RPG elements are.

At the very least the 3D graphics are sure looking nice, and I’m really liking the general art style and character design used in the game. The developers plan on releasing Kids vs. Goblins in September, and I’m sure we’ll be bringing you plenty more details about the game in the weeks to come.

    Really liking the gameplay. But not liking the idea of playing as kids as the main characters.

      I think the only reason you're put off by the kids is because it's in the title. A lot of games have had kids as the main character (e.g. Legend of Zelda).

        I dunno, this one's totally different. Check out the screen of the video above. I'm still interested with the game. Just don't know why they went with the 'Kids' approach. I wouldn't have bothered it the characters were caricatures or cutesy styled units like Dungeon Defenders or Pocket RPG (or FF9).

        True. It is an odd choice. Regardless, I will still most likely purchase the game. :)

    At least it's going for something a little different with the kids as characters. Looks pretty!

      Well they can't use little black kids, the Goblins wouldn't have a chance!

    Looks promising. Of course kid characters in J-rpgs and K-rpgs is nothing new, so it doesn't bother me at all.

    Hmmm... Seems like a BattleHeart rip off for me, but as any other MikaMobile games clone this looks like it dosent have a any passion put in it, just a game to make quick buck.

      That's why they called "Stolen" Couch ;)
