FreeYou have probably heard of bull riding, but what about goat riding? Goat Rider is a new game from the makers of Mikey Shorts/Hooks/Boots, who have dabbled in quick action games as of late with Radical and Move The Walls. Goat Rider continues the theme of quick action games, and requires you to stay on top of a goat for as long as possible. The goat moves left and right, and you need to tap and hold when the goat moves right, and then release your finger when the goat moves left. That is really all there is to it, and you try to stay on the goat for as long as possible, in traditional bull riding fashion.
The core mechanic is easy to pick up and play, and then keep playing to better your time. There’s more to the game with the added flavor of additional characters to unlock and ride as. You start out as a beaver, but can unlock ninety nine additional characters to ride as. Not only can you unlock characters, but each round of Goat Rider sends characters walking on to the scene that you can knock over as you’re riding. If you’re familiar with many indie developed iOS games, you will see familiar characters to add to the fun.
Goat Rider (Free, Universal) isn’t a super in-depth game, but it’s quick fun that anyone can enjoy.
