Goat Guardian

JohnBDeveloped by Head Fizz, Goat Guardian is a platform puzzle game that stars Steven and his pet goat, Steven Jr.! Steven Jr. likes to climb to dangerous places, so Steven has to run out and and rescue him. Each level features a tricky layout of falling platforms and other obstacles standing between you and your pal. Uncover the golden apple, send it to Steven Jr., then make it back to him in one piece. The tricky part is all the platforms fall once you touch them, meaning you have to plan your route very, very carefully.

Level design is king in Goat Guardian: compact and efficient but still challenging. Later stages introduce timed blocks, beetles that grant you temporary new abilities, arrow blocks that fire when touched, even giant birds that screech by, threatening to end your game. It's a well-made and attractive game with a good set of stages that are just the right balance of reflexes and puzzle solving. You can even skip through levels to complete them at your leisure, all while trying your best to go for a perfect score.

Play Goat Guardian


I've noticed it's pretty easy to "cheat" the platforms: Standing on the upper right or upper left corner makes the platform not react to being on it normally, i.e., time blocks don't start counting down, normal blocks don't fall, etc.

Nice little game - good concept and decent puzzles, doesn't take too long to play. Puzzles could've been harder with more timing requirements - would like to see a second version with more puzzles.

Gave up on level 10, tried it once. I'm not sure it's possible.

Really !!!


@google guy

For level 10 you just need to get your timing right with the arrow so it hits the last block to get the orange to appear, you do not have to step on the top orange block just let the arrow hit it.Also remember the arrows will not fire until you jump off of them


Got bored with it pretty fast. Minus points for not being able to mute the music only and having to use the mouse to click next level when it's otherwise keyboard-driven.

The Video Game of Life> Dora Gamers love gold, right? And they love getting perfect ratings, also right? In Keybol's challenging platformer, every level is almost absurdly easy, unless you're aiming to get the three shiny gold coins in each stage. Subtle? Not really. Tricky? That's another matter entirely.  ...
