Goat Simulator is exactly what it sounds like: a reproduction of the life of a goat. An open world to rampage freely, scaring others and damaging everything you see, Goat Simulator is a bizarre game completely outside the box, but incredibly funny in its simplicity.

An anarchist goat

In Goat Simulator, you become a goat that grazes freely in an open world (actually not too big), who’s only purpose is to destroy everything it finds. You can bleat as loud as you want to scare others, ram against objects and humans, break into people's homes, and destroy cars, fences, or basically whatever's in front of you.The horns are your weapon, but you can also use the goat’s tongue to lick anything or bite objects and living things to drag them with you. Goat Simulator has no goals or real missions to accomplish. The only thing that matters in the game is how much you run around destroying everything you find to collect points, hoping to enter the leaderboard. At most, you can achieve extra points by carrying out specific actions listed on the screen, such as flying for a certain period of time with a special jetpack. Bizarre, right? Pay attention when crossing the street, or you could be run over by cars or trucks passing by, but don’t fear too much for your life– you're only a click away from coming back to life. The game’s world is yours to explore, and you can discover unexpected surprises offered by the developers, like a ring to fight against other aggressive goats, or a house in which you can turn on a TV and play Flappy Goat (a mini-game that pays tribute to the famous Flappy Bird).

Freedom to move

The controls are simple and responsive, and you'll have maximum freedom of movement. With your goat, you can move in any direction, running and kicking with your hind legs, and make violent headbutts, among other things. Physics and animations aren't fine tuned, but its likely that they're deliberately imperfect. In fact, this is what makes the game so good!

The irresistible charm of bugs... Goat Simulator is played from a third-person point of view. Graphics are smooth, but far from perfect, and it even has a few blatant bugs. You'll see the head of the goat pass through walls or fences without a reason, and limbs frequently disappear. The animations are a bit rough and out of any logic, and these are only a few examples. A serious flaw? Quite the opposite: these bugs are part of the beauty of Goat Simulator and contribute masterfully to increase the fun. Even the poor quality background music is magnificently framed by the surreal atmosphere of the game.

Playing with goats can be very amusing

Goat Simulator makes it seem like the life of a goat is much more exciting than you ever imagined, and as a game developed with no real goals to accomplish, it succeeds. You'll be curious and interested in the game even in spite of all those huge graphical bugs that, intentional or not, blend exceptionally well with the crazy dynamics of the anarchist goat. But you’ll only know if you play the game. Of course, Goat Simulator is not a game for everyone: for the hardcore gamer, this is a nonsensical game, while casual gamers will find it bizarre and interesting. One thing is certain: Goat Simulator is a fun game, very original, and centainly outside the box, and for this reason alone, is definitely worth a try.

Goat Simulator is the latest in goat simulation technology, bringing next-gen goat simulation to YOU. You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat, your mobile dreams have finally come true!

Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. more! When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

DISCLAIMER
Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat.
