"The game’s flow from challenge to discovery is a masterwork for the genre ..." - Ars Technica

Escape Goat 2 is a puzzle platformer game where you use machinery, the environment, and a friendly mouse to progress through a dungeon.

Overview: None have overcome the Stronghold of Toragos... will you be the first goat to do so? Escape Goat 2 is the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed 2011 indie game, featuring more than double the content: larger rooms, HD graphics, dynamic lighting, and a host of devilish new traps.

Pick your path through the massive Stronghold, divided into ten unique zones. Worry not, brave Goat, for you have a friend on this mission: Your immortal mouse familiar can crawl to otherwise unreachable areas, to hit switches and distract enemies. Use your wits, reason, reflexes and courage to overcome each room, and save your friends from an eternal slumber...

  • Over 100 rooms of puzzles, traps, and sheeply lore
  • With destructible and movable walls, the rooms take on many forms as you manipulate hidden machinery to reach the exit
  • Fully hand-drawn, hi-def art and animation, brought to life with a custom lighting engine
  • Epic 90's Redbook Audio soundtrack, featuring guest track by Disasterpeace (composer, FEZ)

Escape Goat 2 reviews and comments

8/10 - Good action-puzzle game.
«Just one more turn»
«Constantly dying and enjoy it»
Translated by
Microsoft from French
No offense to the incompetent fat bastards of Destructoid, there is only one goat game on the market. I mean, goat Simulator is good, but a it has nothing to do, two it's not even a game. Ah. Yes. I may have to explain. It's been a payoff now that I'm pulling out the fangs in front of the pseudo-dayour videogame. Their incompetence, their bad faith and their lack of ethics exasperated me. The only ones I can still frame is RPS and sterling (and again, the second, sometimes, does not reflect further than the tip of his nose, but either, at least brings something to the landscape). So when the above-mentioned wanky come to mix escape goat 2 and goat Simulator, I have it bad. When as a bonus the author of the rag is infoutu to understand that no, goat escape it would not have been better as a title since SCAPEGOAT ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ of language WANER returns to KINDERGARTENS. AND play the first you may even understand why ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I start yelling. When the same hole of the butt mixes to give notes to his pseudo-tested games and Carre a 7/10 to escape goat 2, I have cravings for murders. 7/10 is "good". The game is above that. When he dares to pretend that the controls are crappy... He should soon receive his little envelope filled with white powder. WELL, MAYBE IT'LL GIVE YOU SOME BASIC HEAVY METAL LESSONS. Ahem. More seriously, therefore, the thing demonstrates once again the total incompetence of the largest of the "press" videogame. I had already talked about it with thief, where fools have shown that they were as many of the players as I am the last antipope since none of them tested the game above normal. And that normally constituted person does not play thief in normal. Since the dawn of time. Here it is the same. He has also directly received a quite correct dose of flak for his crap on controls (which, just as for his predecessor, are above reproach, even on the keyboard). What's there to say about escape goat 2? That it's escape goat in addition. More beautiful. Warmer. More difficult. Longer. Better. A glance at the trailer, the screenshots, is enough to see the first point. Hotter, because mine of nothing, this change brings a lot to the atmosphere, and actually gives the paintings, especially the most colorful areas, a feeling of warmth. We're at home, though. More difficult... Yes, yes. Not that the skeleton is more ignoble, no. It remains escape goat, with completely standard additions and new mechanics, and the learning curve is always lated like the boots of a hierarchical superior. No, what makes it more difficult is the rest. Once finished the game (I schemmatise, you can start earlier, but either), each zone will offer you a second part harder than the one you have already crossed, and will test what you know of the workings of the game. It was a pleasure that was not as strong in escape goat, where the difficulty was a leap that could put some of it off. Here you can totally jump from one area to another to try another puzzle if you block, and you have to admit it's good. And then there are the secret pieces. Even if you finish all these seconds parts of the zones, you will find that you are less than 90% of the game. These secret pieces are the most difficult levels of the game and will ask you for a complete mastery of the beast, both in the gameplay and in the wheels. Fortunately, there are not hundreds of them. That's where escape goat 2 could make you ragequitter. In short, it is at all good, especially since nothing requires you to go through all this. Longer, precisely because of all these optional parts. Let us understand: If you do not even make the second parts of zones, the game is shorter than escape goat; you might even regret your investment. But honestly, if that is your intention, why even make the effort to read a review? You will tell me, there are the puzzles of the community too... But there seems to be quite a lot of fierce around here. Beware. Better, then. More better on all floors, and even more better by its length adaptable to your desires and needs, and extendable to the environment. For the rest, you can quite refer to my review of escape goat, you will know what it returns (if you did not play it, in which case what are you doing here?) In conclusion: escape goat 2 maintains the title and AOC of the game. Just wait for the third. PS-dear Destructoid pseudo-reviewer, die in a fire, kthxbye. 11/10, would b (l) eat again.
