"A puzzle platformer that isn't necessarily long, but it is charming though. And one of the many reasons people need to play it."

“Escape Goat does a bang-up job of providing those all-important "a-ha!" moments of satisfaction, when you solve a puzzle, or get the timing of some jumps just right, and manage finally to complete an area. That's what keeps you playing right through to the end.”
8/10 – IGN

“… incredibly fun puzzle platformer with a rockin’ soundtrack.”
Destructoid

“With the ability to tackle levels at your own pace, and some masterfully-tuned difficulty, we can guarantee that you’ve never played a better goat-centric game.”

Oh, yes. A solidly built, utterly captivating 2D platformer.

It's not "8-bit" for the sake of it, it doesn't satirise or parody old platformers (Well, perhaps the "Excuse Plot" does a little), it just does it's job well. The controls are perfectly balanced, the graphics and sound are just right and the game doesn't outstay it's welcome. If you do manage to finish it, you can unlock an extra ridiculously hard dungeon especially designed for people who love a challenge.

Now for the sequel....

The Rat with the Hat helps the Goat cross a Moat where they save a Sheep who is Asleep and escape a castle that I can't rhyme with anything.

Fun game! I loved it. The goat is awesome, the controls feel perfect, and the levels are well designed. The game seems like a good length and I finished the whole thing without anything dragging on.

I like to think of Escape Goat as "the little game that could". Launching first on the highly flawed and crowed Xbox Indie Game Market, it garnered a cult following that pushed it ahead of the seemingly endless shovelware that littered the platform, eventually making its way to Steam and even getting a sequel. Despite the acclaim, I've been sitting on the sidelines, still unconvinced by the unimpressive graphics and seemingly basic design. As is often the case though, my first impressions couldn't have been further from the truth, as Escape Goat more than lives up to its well deserved reputation.

Locked in a dungeon, you play as a magical goat with a magical mouse friend, on a journey to escape and bring with you the magical sheep who have been trapped for an eternity for crimes of witchcraft. To get to these sheep however you must first solve a series of puzzle rooms, the contents of which can be anything from harmless blocks to fire casting Reapers. Because of its nonlinear structure, there isn't any way for your abilities to grow overtime or otherwise have the game expand and evolve the further you get, but far from being a handicap the developer uses this potential limitation to craft remarkably consistent levels. There's no gradual rise in difficulty or sharp spikes later on, but instead a constant stream of challenging but not frustrating level designs that feel incredibly satisfying to complete.

You may only have less than a handful of moves and abilities, but the ways these can be applied to levels continues to broaden as different areas showcase various applications of them that never would have occurred to me to even try. It's this continual progression of what you think you can do without actually changing anything about your character that makes Escape Goat such a clever game to play. It rewards your own ingenuity without resorting to simply giving you a new mechanic to work with.

If you have yet to partake in the escape of Argus with your magical mouse friend, I'd advise you to delay no longer. Developer Magical Time Bean's Escape Goat is a truly impressive achievement and a joyous game to play, who's biggest flaw is it ends so soon (though perhaps it's for the best, as it completely negates the chance for filler). Despite its dated look it manages to feel fresh and innovative the whole way through, and you'd be fool to do as I did and wait so long to give it a chance.

I enjoyed the game well enough. The graphics and sound are a fitting, pretty standard retro style, and the game mechanics are well-designed.

Though it’s probably best characterized as a puzzle platformer, I found Escape Goat’s puzzling aspects to be pretty tame. In all but the last group of rooms, each puzzle tended to have a pretty obvious/straightforward solution. Let’s just say that if we were to build a difficulty scale for these types of games, Fire N’ Ice might be near the top, while this game would come close to defining the bottom end. Of course, it’s still a fun game, so I won’t concern myself too much with that.

Verdict: It’s worth playing, but I probably won’t go back for the speedrun achievement (I hate speedruns in puzzle games), nor do I feel compelled to do the extra challenge levels that unlocked after the end of the game.

Great puzzle-platformer game with some not so hidden message about the sheep and their keeper(s).

There are already a lot of longer reviews here, its just another "thumbs up" from me cuz I really enjoyed it.

A clever little puzzle platformer, Escape Goat has you controlling a magic purple goat (and indirectly, a friendly mouse) through 65 different rooms full of moving platforms, switches, traps, and fireball shooting reapers. The puzzles aren't too hard but do require trial and error since there's no way to be sure what a switch will do until you press it. Music's nice and catchy as well. All in all, a decent pickup.

This was actually one of my favorite platformers for awhile. I liked the pixel style to the game, the controls felt fluent, and overall, there was just something to its simplistic charm. Not to mention, I spent so much time in the editor making evil traps and such. I think that was my favorite part more than anything. So you like what I just mentioned, get this game! Or if you aren't a fan of the style, then get its sequel.

Great puzzle platformer. Level difficulties range from easy to stupidly brutal, specifically referring to the extra levels. You can beat the main game in just 3-4 hours and I don't think there's a whole lot of replayability, so I'm not sure if it's worth the full $5 but it's a great value in any of the many bundles it's featured in.

I purchased this game as part of some bundle. I'm sure it cost about $.20 when it was all said and done. I genuinely have enjoyed playing the game. It is a 8-bit graphics puzzle/platformer with some neat game mechanics. I'd say if you like super meat boy, Bit-Trip runner, etc. - this game is a good pick up for some fun. It's not too difficult - and not too long either. All in all - definitely worth a buck. Or in my case, twenty cents.

beautiful game crafted with love. i can't really explain why... but it truly offers a fantastic atmosphere that is simply mesmerizing. another reviewer framed it very well: "everything about it makes me happy".

+ very solid and satisfying platform physics
+ good pixel graphics, but lacking details and some "bling" (escape goat 2 just looks so much better)
+ awesome soundtrack
+ charming atmosphere
+ oddly appealing "story"
+ excellent tone of writing
+ lots and lots of mechanics for such a small game
+ level editor
- overall quite short, therefore a bit too expensive in my opinion (got it discounted)
- you can't save inbetween zones
- partially VERY hard

2D action-puzzle platformer. Difficult, but fair. Solid mechanics and nice retro presentation. Fairly short. Has a light story, but the idea of solving puzzles to escape deathtrap dungeon is fairly obvious without any exposition. I had fun.

Very excellent 2d platform puzzler.
Awesome music. Great mood-setting pixel graphics. Great levels. This probably my top recommended game. I think it's probably more enjoyable than the sequel.
