It took me seven years but I finally finished this game. Certainly it is one of the most underrated, and least known, adventure classics.

The one problem with it is its zany "try everything you can think of" approach. This style works great in Coktel's first Gobliiins game because you're only dealing with one screen at a time. The next two Goblins games bumped this up to two or three screens, but were still doable. In Woodruff, you have dozens of rooms and lots of characters and a large inventory. True, its puzzles are largely "logical" but much of that logic is only clear in hindsight.

Still, Woodruff has a great world to explore, a terrific and complex story, and is a rare gem of a game.

Great review. Reminded me of all the sometimes fun, sometimes bizarre, sometimes frustrating moments I spent with Woodruff. It's a game that shouldn't be ignored by adventure games fans even if it has its share of flaws.
