  • Conclusion: Good: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

  • Conclusion: With a gorgeous soundtrack and its sublime design Escape Goat 2 is the kind of 2D puzzle platformer that made me feel warm and fuzzy inside - like a mug of hot tea with a jam crumpet. Sure, it won’t last long in the memory like Braid or Fez, neither will it be a classic in the same league as Super Meat Boy but Escape Goat 2 does deserve the same sort of praise - it’s a superbly designed and exquisite experience that’ll entertain and enthral through all of its short...

  • Conclusion: Escape Goat 2 is joyfully old-school, feeling very much like a lost NES title. Its soundtrack is even reminiscent of Castlevania ’s. It’s also comparable to the recent puzzler Teslagrad , but it’s not quite as frustrating. Between this and Goat Simulator , this must be Year of the Goat. I, for one, welcome gaming’s new overlords.

  • Conclusion: This is a relatively cute game with no real violence (only a handful of levels contain adversaries). There is not a lot of text in the game, although some of it alludes to darker themes. The puzzles and platforming may be challenging for younger kids used to playing licensed character games, but I feel the game would offer some great opportunity to build problem solving skills with its intuitive puzzles.

Escape Goat – Review (PC)

  • Conclusion: Escape Goat is damn good, but that’s all. The puzzles are interesting, but aren’t the most challenging I’ve ever encountered and the lack of pacing and having speed be an essential factor left me feeling rather underwhelmed. Being clever is fine, but the puzzles aren’t that exciting in an N or Super Meat Boy kind of way.
  • Pros: Engaging, well-made puzzles
  • Cons: Not as challenging for veterans of the genre
