Escape Goat Review

Escape Goat is available for the PC. It was recently released on Steam, and will cost you $4.99.

You play as a little purple goat that needs to escape with your sheep and hamster friends!  In the beginning you find yourself in this room called The Gathering Place. In this room you find ten doors. Some of them are locked, and some are open. Each room has six levels. The more rooms you beat the more rooms will open up.

Now here's where the fun starts. When you enter a room in The Gathering Place you'll have to endure six levels of blocks, doors, keys, locks, enemies, explosions, and much more. The goal is simple - escape each room. Have no fear though! You have your trusty companion to help you squeeze through small passages, or help push buttons you can't reach.

I had a blast controlling the little purple goat. Using the controller made the gameplay very easy, but Escape Goat is a game where you'll have to retry some levels over and over. When I died I knew it was my fault, and I was ashamed of myself. There was never a time where I was frustrated with the controls.

Escape Goat was a lot of fun. Some of the levels were very hard, but there wasn't a point where I was slamming my controller on the ground because a level was just cruel. BUT! I know some people are into this sort of thing. Don't worry Escape Goat has you covered. After you beat the main game you unlock new levels that are not so forgiving. Overall it was the right amount of difficulty to make everyone happy but challenged.

The main game of Escape Goat took me around two hours. Sure, that's a little on the short side, but there's more levels to play afterwards like I mentioned, and there's even a level editor.

Final Say: I had a lot of fun with Escape Goat, and there's nothing to complain about. It's only $4.99 on Steam, and you'll get a couple of hours of enjoyment out of it. There was a lot of excitement throughout Escape Goat - figuring out how to reach a key, or avoiding a fiery death. I recommend Escape Goat for any puzzle platformer fan out there!
