Goat is a curious, little goat (shocking) who lives peacefully in the mountains. One day, she had an accident and ended up landing on the top of a haunted tower. A tower that would try to kill her with all its means...

Help Goat to survive by charging rocks and trees and dodging dangerous spiky trees and fire balls. Watch out for Goat's stamina level (pink top bar) as she runs out of energy quickly. Recharge her batteries by picking up stamina balls. Use super power when you're in trouble or running out of energy.

Can you get to the end and save Goat?

Controls

  • Arrow keys: move & charge objects
  • X: start game / confirm
  • Z: use super power

Lovely cart! A simple mechanic that's easy to understand but ends up being frustrating and enjoyable at the same time. My strategy for greed of gems and lighning-bolts caused me to often get in positions where I died through entirely my own fault. I would then jump straight back in, resolving not to be so greedy next time, but more often than not, simply repeating my bad strategy. I did get to the 3rd chapter once, but that seemed very difficult.

I really enjoyed your cart. It has great presentation and clean graphics. I'd prefer a high-score table rather than a single high-score as I often dip into these sorts of games for a 5 minute blast to see how much I can score.

Thank you all for your kind words!

@phil A high-score table sounds like a great idea for this kind of fast-paced games. I actually love competing with my son to get on the high-score table when we play shmups. I'll try to squeeze the feature in. Thanks for the feedback!

@vteromero I won! WooHoo! However my winning game (score 5,000 ish) didn't beat my highscore of 6720. I like this as it means to get a really high score, you have to really go for the high-value items rather than just surviving.

Loving this game - it's my new go-to game for a quick 5 minute distraction.
