He and his panther survives with only a few scratches, But the ruby brakes in to nine pieces and is scattered all over Moominvalley (and its surrounding), and after this, the Hobgoblin falls in to a depression. The Hobgoblin's Hat on the other hand knows that the residents of Moomin Valley has found the pieces, and the hat is ready to collect the pieces with the help of the player. Too get the pieces back, the player must finish different tasks throughout Moomin Valley.
Just like in the previous games, clicking on objects with the mouse can cause a short scripted even to occur, but only in a few places.
