There should be a public holiday whenever a new Goat Simulator [$4.99] game releases, as it really is a momentous occasion for not only the App Store, but the video games industry as a whole. Chaotic, buggy, and downright freakish action featuring a whole cast of eccentric animals guarantees a fun time, and Goat Simulator: Payday [$4.99] takes the typical shenanigans of the series to a new gangster-themed setting. With the eponymous mammal joined by a wheelchair-bound dolphin, a spitting camel and a flying flamingo, you're tasked with assembling your crew in an open world suburban town and taking the money of innocent bystanders with no mercy and an abundance of style. The screenshots look hilarious, and if there's any praise you can level at the Goat Simulator series it's that you know exactly what you're getting yourself into - if you're looking for the next essential iOS release, Goat Simulator: Payday is available now on the App Store for $4.99...

As a long time admirer of games that aren't afraid to be weird, I certainly appreciate and respect what Goat Simulator [$4.99] has done. I mean, you wouldn't think a buggy, janky game where you play a total jerk of a goat would strike it big, but it did. Gosh, did it ever. There are now tons of Goat Simulator games across multiple platforms, each offering their own variety of madcap entertainment. If you've been wondering what the deal is with this series but were too afraid to plunk down the money to see what it's all about, I've got some good news for you today. The original Goat Simulator is now available for free, for the first time ever...




There hasn't been a whole lot of competition in 2016, however Goat Simulator [$4.99] is still by far the best simulation of everyone's favourite horned mammal (don't write in, Rhinoceros fans) currently on the App Store. While the game doesn't strive for a realistic representation of goat culture, the ability to flail unassuming bystanders around with your tongue, defy the laws of physics through a wondrous trampoline, and best of all shape-shift into a whale makes for a unique experience, to say the least. While the holiday season tends to be dominated by lesser animals like reindeers, Coffee Stain Studios want to remind you that goats can celebrate too, and so Goat MMO Simulator [$1.99] has received a relevant update titled 'Winter, or Whatever', with a sackful of neat features to make the game even more festive and fun...

I'm not one for hyperbole, but Coffee Stain Studio's Goat Simulator [$4.99] is indisputably the best goat, giraffe and whale simulator game of all time, and the App Store was unequivocally blessed by its presence when it launched in 2014. At the time, it was universally praised by fans of goats, fans of simulators, and anyone in between, and in our review, Carter even deviated from his notorious three and a half star rating tyranny, and bestowed it with a rare but deserved four star score. Unfortunately, while the joke was funny at first, we soon fell back to reality - Goat Simulator quickly got old, and didn't have much longevity beyond the initial novelty and complete absurdity of its core concept. However, Coffee Stain Studios have taken steps to alleviate this issue through new spin off entries in the franchise, and occasional updates that add brand new features and levels to try out. Today, the original Goat Simulator received a 'Buck to School' update, that adds new menus, and most importantly a whole new level to glitch around in...

When Goat Simulator [$4.99] from Coffee Stain Games originally hit the App Store back in 2014, it was a massive hit commercially and also received a solid recommendation in our review for being awfully fun, even if it wasn't substantial or possessing any form of longevity. Despite this, we've received three iterations of the open world goat formula, with Goat Z [$4.99], Goat MMO Simulator [$1.99] and most recently Goat Simulator Waste of Space [$4.99]. Today, for anyone looking to delve into the entire set, a GOATY Bundle has launched on the App Store, offering all four entries in the series for a cool $14.99...

Finally on mobile, Young Horses' Octodad: Dadliest Catch [$4.99] has you controlling the eponymous Octodad, an octopus who has a wife and two children, and is just really trying to keep this good thing going. Don't ask why the children are human, you won't get any good answers. And if the game feels like you're jumping into something you should know more about, that's because it is a sequel to a student game that the principals of the studio made while they were students at DePaul. You'll catch on pretty quickly, though – you control an octopus that is pretending to be human, trying to do normal human things like going grocery shopping, mowing the lawn, and avoiding the maniacal chef who wants nothing more than to reveal you for the fraud that you are. This all while you have octopus limbs that don't do a great job at simulating human legs and hands, and the human tasks that you must accomplish...

Goat Simulator Goat Z [$4.99] by Coffee Stain Studios is among the worst zombie games I’ve ever played. It’s also one of the worst survival, physics, and score chasing games I’ve played. It is, however, a very good goat game. And it’s certainly the best physics-based zombie survival game featuring a goat to ever grace the App Store...

When the absurd PC hit Goat Simulator [$4.99] launched on iOS last September, it was a joyous event. I'd seen all the crazy videos and read all the reviews, and I knew that Goat Simulator was something I needed in my life, but for whatever reason I never got around to playing it until it hit iOS. Once I had though, it was basically everything I'd ever hoped for, and we gave it high marks in our review. However, the iOS version wasn't quite up to snuff with its PC counterpart in terms of content, but developer Coffee Stain Studios let us know on their blog that big things were in the works for the mobile Goat Simulator. Today, one of those big things was released in the form of a new update for the game...

There are plenty of negative things to be said about Goat Simulator [$4.99]. Its controls are difficult to manage, and lead to many awkward camera angles and difficult attempts at navigating. The visuals...are not the peak of 3D modeling. The world is a bit small, and while there's plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, you can see most of this game in a short amount of time. The game's general clumsiness makes it difficult to manage the skill-based aspects, and to complete some of the achievements. And the game is generally kinda buggy, with the goat's head getting stuck and warped in fences, occasionally just falling through the earth, and the odd crash or two. The whole thing is a joke that runs its course not too long after playing it...
