Goat Simulator is not a game I’d have expected to take up such a large chunk of my life, but a game you can play with your kids that’s just absolutely bonkers had kept coming up because the can’t beat me at Mario Kart. I’ll play with them, they’ll play against each other, mass goat dramas will ensue.
Goat Simulator 3 is the second installment in the franchise and makes a lot of digs at modern games as well as continues the requisite absurdity of the original game, and now it’s available on Android… whoo hoo! What’s more it shows up in Google’s family purchases/share so your kiddos can join in local head to head play on their devices and… well, kids will be kids. I will note we’ve not done head to head play yet, it just has piqued my kiddos interest that they won’t have to share a screen on the XBOX.
I don’t know where to even begin with this game except that on a Pixel 8 Pro the graphics are acceptable and similarly they appear fine on a Galaxy 9. I dislike on-screen controls personally and have been playing with that Gamesir G8 (video coming soon) and it’s been acceptable (need to figure out how to speed on the right controller view to be more like the XBOX Goat Sim, but other than that amusing).
I purchased Goat Simulator a few years back on XBOX, even though it was free. I wanted to see the expanded goat world and though the kids might enjoy it, which they do enjoy the zombie outbreak one quite a bit. I was impressed what they managed to put n their non-main game. I don’t think any of that is required to get the goat’s story though. Is there a story?
I really have not played enough of this to review the game, but what I have played indicates that if you liked Goat Simulator you’re probably going to love it. I thought I recorded quite a bit of gameplay video, but nope… evidently ten minutes of gameplay footage I did today just straight up didn’t save… womp womp.
If you haven’t played Goat Simulator and you’ve got Play Pass that one is also available at the moment as part of Play Pass.
