Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Schnibble is a puzzle game from Coktel Vision, creators of the Gobliiins series of games. It has a similar art style and puzzle structure, but with a more open environment that you are free to explore. You take the role of Woodruff, in an adventure to save his Boozook civilisation from annihilation by the humans.


Talk to the onlooker at the bottom of the screen (several times) to learn of Azimuth and J F Sebastian. Now grab the underwear button, then look at the strange contraption. Walk to the right and talk to Sad Boozook, then to the young woman. Note the stone to learn that you can't read, then continue right.

Talk to the beggar. Lift the box, then kick the nut and take it. Throw the nut at the beggar, then take his boot after he throws it at you. Go back to Azimuth's house and throw the boot at the one above the window. Pick up both boots and you will put them on (and discover a photograph. Go and show this to the young woman, and she will give you an article.

Now head right and over the river, take the nut and keep going right. Enter the bar and talk to the guy at the bar, then go and talk to the owner up the back. She will tell you your identity. Give her the article and show it to the owner, who will teach you to read and give you an A stone. Wait for the elastic barman to drop down and pick his pocket to get a bottle opener. Look at the poster to learn about the weather station. Now go and talk to Sebastian to remember everything and appear at the title screen. Grab the brush and leave.

Go back through the bar to the outside and give the coffee to the wino. Talk to him a few times and learn that he has a hole in his memory. Dip your brush in the tar barrel, then take some feathers from the bag. Walk right again. Kick the can of food, then take the bean and the can. Look at the shop window to the right to see a kite. Now return to the street of the Sad Boozook. Put the A stone in the A imprint to get the Tobozon, then use it to get a recorded message. Dial the Canal Meteo Channel to hear a weather report. Walk left to Azimuth's house and use the elevator to head up.


Talk to the bureaucrat to learn the location of the Bigwig. Go right and talk to the nut merchant a few times. Try to enter the High Morals Club to find out it has a dress code. Head left over the bridge. Read the employment ad, then use the Tobozon to dial the appropriate number. Examine the Brotoflatron to find it needs a strul. Now try to take the finger and the owner of the store will notice you. Talk to the gambler, then follow him inside.

Look at the wheel just inside the door. Stop it using your nut, then go outside and take the finger. Go back inside. Try to talk to Jeff, but he is too distracted by the picture. Paint it with tar, then talk to Jeff and learn that he is banned from the High Morals Club. Use the feathers on him and he will fly away (and owe you a favour). Now look at the time syllable clock to note that it needs some water. Head right into the darkened area. Move the flopper and glapper and try the switch until you have the right positions to light up a big nose. Use the finger on it and you will find a secret door and head through.

Talk to the woman twice to get a new code. Play the flipper game until you break it, then pick up the Strul. Gamble with the Strul in the money machine until you have 20 Struls, then head through to the right. Move the large meteorite, then keep going right. Get on the elevator and go up.

Use the public tobozon to listen to the President. Go back to the top, then right to the Big Wig area. Look at the stain and take the trash bag. Now head through to the left.

Talk to the leader of the followers several times. Now pick up the paper and you will get depressed. Sit down on the bench and click on yourself several times to start crying. Press the doorbell on the left and you will be brought a handkerchief. Press it a second time to get a note from Azimuth. Type his code into your tobozon to get a video message. Talk to the factory guard to learn that you need a work permit to enter. Go left to the temple, but you need a bluxtre nut to get inside here. Go left, then down to the right and head back down on the elevator, then go left to the Virtual Trip Tower. Go down and talk to the owner, who asks for something hard in exchange for the nut. Remembering the weather forecast, go up, right and up the elevator to the Bigwig Area. Use your weather watch to get some meteorite.

Talk to him to learn that he will leave you the Intuition syllable. Return to the present. Grab the stone fish from the statue's armour.

Now go back up both elevators and head left twice to reach Slammer's Dead End. Walk into the hut on the right and the master will tell you to call Coh Cott again.

If it is okay, press the switch, get the crate, put the hat in the crate, then walk to the front of the conveyor belt (in line below the machine at the top of the screen). You will automatically bounce the crate to the top machine (if you miss, you were standing in slightly the wrong position - try again).

Punch the nurse, pull the lever, and go through to the lab.

Pick up the seed, then talk to the Professor and the Fertility Wiseman. Go to the fountain area and use the Talent syllable with the Wiseman here. Now put the seed in the fountain. Pour in some water from your hat, then take the spice from the plant. Go back to the lab and head left to the fan platform. Put gasoline in the tank and press the switch. Look at the fan.

Talk to the censors, then to Jeff, who opens the door for you. Try to go through the door and you will be stopped. Go and put your trash bag on the brazier, then go through the door.

Go back to Slammer's Dead End and give the form to the guard.

Once you are inside, get the rag from the roof and use it on the window on the ground. Talk to the robot when it appears (you will suggest a hobby). Talk to the guards to start a card game, and give the rummy rules to the robot. Now go up to the prison tower and check the weather forecast on the Tobozon. Use your weather watch, then put the kite on the cross - you will be carried up to the next level. Talk to the prisoner, then continue up the tower. Use the stone arm to get the rope, then use your new grabber on the left gargoyle. You will get facial control (and the power of levitation) from the Master.

Return to the fan platform and use the Levitation power on the fan. Use your shell on the spiral imprint to get the Intuitive symbol, then make the Insight formula. Also use your Tobozon to contact Coh Cott again, to get an invitation to the Eye Party, and a new code.

Put a strul in the cult's hole, then use the computer. Talk to the high priest, make another donation, and use the computer again.

Use the Levitation power to become the chosen one. Click on the gongs in the right sequence (grand, grand, small, grand, small, small), then take the Ceedeerom. For a less-than-satisfactory ending to the game, head into the initiation room (save your game first).

Transport to Coh Cott's room and use the Growth formula on the plant. Climb the plant to reach the Bigwig's apartment. Click on the force-field, then use the Levitate power on it. Use the lid on the Bigwig then quickly use the Ceedeerom in the VCR slot to hypnotise him. Use the Viblefrotzer on him, then get the magnetic card from his clothes.
