Coktel ended its line of puzzle games on a mildly disappointing note, with a game that is too confusing, too open-ended, with puzzles so wacky (i.e. illogical) that they would require an unusual brain or an inordinate amount of time to solve. Even the plot itself is hard to summarize: You are an alien named Woodruff who is tasked with finding the mysterious gadget the Schnibble of Azimuth.

Despite vibrant SVGA graphics and some very funny sight gags, the puzzles are so confusing and illogical that I doubt anyone could finish this game without any hints. Recommended, but only to puzzle experts. And even then, be prepared to take some Advil while you're at it ;)
