App description: GoatUp is easily the best goat-related platform game on iOS.

Your goal is to raise a family - as high as you can! Kiss billy goats and eat grass to get kids. Keep jumping to lead your flock as high as you can.

On the way you'll encounter various enemies, pass through zones inspired by the history of platform gaming, and collect hundreds of unique bonus items.

This simple and fun game will keep you coming back for one more go. Controls are, as usual for Llamasoft games, amongst the best on iOS and offer excellent touchscreen controls for left or right handers, or tilt-and-touch controls, selectable as you prefer.

GoatUp is OpenFeint enabled and a global leaderboard is maintained for both OpenFeint and GameCenter.

Great stuff by Jeff. Addictive as hell; been playing it all night. Not a big fan of platformers myself but this lends itself well to a wider audience with typical Minter humor and homage to some classic games. Well worth it.

Well loving this ! Its like a cool version of Doodle Jump.

But i also love the little nods to old skool stuff. At the beginning with the initial default screen, instead of 1982 (C) Sinclair Research (For the great old ZX Spectrum) it has a copy but his company name instead. Also some of the graphics are pure retro and a nod to the 80's. The font in the game is also from the 8 bit ZX Spectrum, love it !

Nice surprise to see this game released today, hope it does well, its really playable, you want to keep having one more go. Excellent purchase, very hapy with it. Now have my own 'Minter' folder with all his games in on my ipod.
