  • 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.

  • Summary: There is no shortage of 2D puzzle games involving block manipulation, particularly on the PC, but it's rare to find one with as smooth a difficulty curve as Escape Goat 2. While we've seen the basics of the jumping, block-pushing, and switch-pressing here in other games, these elements come together...
  • Pros: Simple, easy-to-learn controls and mechanics, Smooth difficulty curve, Puzzle variety keeps things fresh
  • Cons: A wrong move at the wrong time can be frustrating

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Engaging, well-made puzzles
  • Cons: Not as challenging for veterans of the genre

  • Excerpt: Puzzle platformers are like buses. You have to figure out how to get on the right surfaces, then reach your destination without dying. On another matter, two have come along at once.
