    The relentless pace is matched by responsive controls (tilt or touchscreen, your choice) and irrepressibly zany audiovisual design. More capable as a distraction than a compulsion, GoatUp is tasty enough to chew on for a couple hours.

    I have long counted Jeff Minter's Minotaur Rescue and Minotron: 2011 as two of the very best games in the App Store, and I can tell you that GoatUp solidly lives up to the greatness of those titles. It's quite a different sort of game, but the pieces come together just as nicely.

    So now I've finally seen what all the fuss is about.

    GoatUp fits in nicely with the Llamasoft pantheon of abstract titles, though this vertical platformer certainly feels 'straighter' than most even despite twists like killing off enemies with your offspring.

    GoatUp does not look or sound that great, but it still has a great retro appeal. The most important feature of GoatUp are the controls, and they are also the best aspect of the app.

    Like Doodle Jump on absinthe, GoatUp is another welcome dose of Minter madness.

    GoatUp manages to be a unique experience despite being just another Doodle Jump knockoff. Who could have imagined that kissing goats, grazing the land and jumping upwards could be so much fun.
