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.

Ladies and gentlemen over the jury. After playing Escape Goat, I am not here to review a simple 2D puzzle platforming game. I am here to prove that this goat is a witch. Goats have long been known for their platforming prowess. They have always been able to scale tall mountains with ease. Like all goats, this one can dash forward to ram through breakable walls or extend a jump. Those are qualities that a normal goat possesses. This goat can double jump. There is no other goat that can jump in mid air.

The meager purple goat that you see before you has broken out of our deepest, darkest prison within only three hours. All with the aide of a cohort mouse that believe it or not, this goat talks to! Not only that, but the goat can command this mouse. The goat can send the mouse running in a straight line, scaling up walls, traversing ceilings and hitting switches. It can even get placed under a sleep spell where it rests wherever this foul witch goat places it! Making it useful to rest on 'weighted switches' that need a body to hold them down. This heathenish goat can even toss its unwilling partner in escape upward where it can then cling on the ceiling and walk forward. The mouse can be instantly summoned back by the simple will of the goat.

I would like to show the court evidence A. The magical hat I have just revealed allows the witch goat to change places with the mouse. Calling this hat magical is a farce! It isn't the hat that is magic, its the goat that makes the hat magic! The goat was able to have the mouse crawl through small areas and then teleport directly to them.

There were still things that the goat couldn't possibly use his mouse ally for. Wall mounted switches that only the goat could touch. These switches lead to a variety of things. Both bad that enabled platforms to help the goat escape and good that started machine like traps. Walls that moved, floors that shifted. All the goat had to do was exit out of each room's open door. If the door wasn't open, the goat managed to find keys that it used to unlock the door. Sometimes six keys in one room and this goat managed to collect them all!

Because of these talents, this magical goat may have escaped all 55+ rooms in this prison, but it cannot escape the arm of the law! This goat managed to escape its own cell block of five puzzling rooms. Then it made its way to the gathering place where it opened up new cell blocks. For every cell block the goat went through, it opened up two more cell blocks. It was able to go through each of the nine cell blocks consisting of five rooms each. All to rescue its sheep sisters from prison. After all that, the witch goat managed to escape nine final rooms of doom!

Each cell block is themed and had even more danger, but the goat make it look easy and fun! One cell block of five rooms featured ice blocks. Blocks too cold for its mouse friend. Blocks that the goat managed to ram and push. Another cell block had hollow blocks that the goat could travel through, but other blocks stacked on top of. Razorblades spinning around platforms couldn't stop the goat! Nor could death reapers that throw fireballs when they spot the goat. Nor could fire breathing wall mounted sentries!

Moving platforms, mechanized blocks, changing structures, rolling barrels that explode when lit on fire and walls that blew up when lit on fire. Nothing could stop this goat! How on this great Earth could one goat survive death like that? Well truth is, the goat never survived death. This goat is as fragile as your ordinary goat. Anything can kill it. Its magic that brought this goat back to life again and again! If the goat ever got trapped in a room. It could suicide, completely resetting the room. The rare times that the goat would fall into pits or be able to leave the room without exiting through the door, the goat respawned!

After all this, the goat thinks it can make a better prison. It can somehow make blue prints and escape from a prison of its own invention! Well witch goat, you may have escaped from the easy prison, but after you made your 3 hour escape look easy, there is another prison waiting for you more brutal than the first! The additional prison has 28 more rooms in 4 cell blocks. All without having to spend more taxpayer money.

I feel that I have proven my point your honor. We cannot have this goat walking among us in civilized society. May the good people of Steam find this goat guilty of being a witch and sentence it to prison!

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.

This game was a lot of fun! I defintiely recommend this game to people who like 2D platformers - the gameplay was interesting enough to keep me immersed and the difficulty was just right.

I loved that you were a goat rescuing sheep, and I found that the achievements were fun to get and didn't take painfully long after I had completed the game.The soundtrack for this game was also surprisingly good, I didn't find myself muting everything like I always do after playing 30 minutes in.

I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes platformers, and enjoys playing good games!

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.

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....

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.

i really can't say enough about how much i loved this game. it's the perfect hybrid puzzle platformer, and is neither too hard nor too easy - enough to tickle your brain, not so much it has you quitting out of frustration. non-linear level completion allows you to leave a tricky one and come back to it later when you want. totally worth 5 dollars - but you can pick it up during a sale for 1.25 and that's just nuts for how much fun this is.

Escape Goat is a cute little puzzle platformer game that deserved to be on Steam much sooner than this. It's not exceptionally long, roughly about 1-2 hours, but it's still very entertaining. The graphics are retro styled and are a good fit for the game.

The heart of the game, the puzzle aspect, isn't extremely hard so pretty much anyone can play and finish the game. Unfortunately, like many other puzzle games, there isn't a very deep story to be found here, but that's ok. Escape Goat's charming visuals and fun puzzles will probbaly win you over anyway. So while we wait for Escape Goat 2 to be released, be a good gamer and play this one first, will you?

[Rating: 80/100]

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.
