Goat Milk

Many weeks ago, the Dow Jones Industrial Average suddenly plunged by 500 points. Jerry the dairy farmer's retirement savings were destroyed, and he went into a profit-driven frenzy to recoup the loss. Searching for new sources of milk, Farmer Jerry turned to the nearest thing he could find: Barry the mountain goat.

You play as Barry. Your goal: don't get milked!

All this running from Farmer Jerry makes you tired, though, so you must make the occasional stop to eat grass, goatberries, and coffee beans, all while avoiding bottomless pits, mud holes, tumbling boulders, high winds, and burning hot magma.

Goat Milk features six action-packed levels of Goatberry-munching glory.

I love the interactive menu and the animation when you eat. Very well done

Awesome job! Good amount of polish in this one and a fun story line. Good graphics & audio as well.

Loved it.

Nice polish on this one and funny story. I was scared as hell of the old man. I didn't get very far though, got stuck on Level 2 after trying several times.

I really loved this game! It has humor and very polished graphics.
The combination of the sound effects, the background music and the fact that our playable character is an adorable goat who cries when you lose made my day.

Can't Play. It told me "No sound device detected. Sounds might not play." in an infinite loop. I see this message from time to time (and sounds always do play) but never see it in a loop like that :(.

Nice, an awesome platformer, with a nice difficulty/new mechanics curve.

Plus, funny. Especially loved the farmer's audio!

Funny, eye and ear pleasing, but maybe a wee bit too hard.

Reached level 5. Simple, yet fun game with some strategy. If you planned your jumps you could reach the end faster and so on.

The "music" was truly horrendous though :). And the sounds the farmer made when he was getting closed creeped me out.

Actually the music was sort of ambivalent enough to enhance the already somewhat inappropriate theme. I liked it ;)

Level 2 was way too hard. 3 and 4 were much easier by comparison, and the last one was pretty spot-on. The gameplay in general is fair though, and you always feel that there should be a way to optimize your movement through the level once you fail. Very charming graphics, and the audio is well executed. Although the munching sample is not played if I run and immediately hit the chomp button. I have to stop first, then eat.

Fun and funny!

I couldn't move on the mini-map and the game eventually became non-responsive. =[ But from what I played, it had a really cool concept. I think this would do well on an iOS device.
