A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
While there are no instructions to the game, learning the basic mechanics is very easy. The bigger struggle is figuring out why you're so intent on knocking things down.
Violence & Scariness
As you might guess from the app's name, the titular goat is intent on knocking down whatever he can find, including crates, humans, and other objects. There's frequent cartoon violence, but nothing graphic.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Goat Rampage is an action simulation game that, yup, lets you play as a goat on a rampage. You'll race around knocking things down till your heart's content in this absurdist title, which insists that you not take it too seriously. There's frequent cartoon violence, but nothing especially worrisome for parents of tweens and above -- and the game doesn't try to nickel and dime players with unnecessary in-app purchases.
Is It Any Good?
Goat Rampage makes no effort to make sense, opting instead to revel in its silliness and grabbing firmly ahold of the coattails of the current goat gaming movement. It's an absurd game that, admittedly, is fun for a short period purely for its sheer ridiculousness, but it's a one-trick pony (or, more precisely, goat) that quickly grows tiresome. While it's funny to see a goat knock over an elephant, drive a jeep or fly a helicopter once, it's less so the second time. It's a make-your-own-fun sort of game that doesn't work overly hard to help you do that.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
