About

Let it Goat is a mobile game in which the player must navigate a goat character through a side-scrolling platform and jump over a series of obstacles by touching the screen at the right time. Its name is a wordplay made in reference to the Frozen song “Let it Go.”=

Origin

“Let It Goat” was created by popular Vine users Jack Gilinsky and Jack Johnson[1] and released by SkyVu Entertainment on Apple’s iOS app store[1] on June 29th, 2014. Gilinsky and Johnson created the game during an internship with SkyVu. In the game, the player assumes the role of a pixelated jumping goat and must tap the screen to help the goat navigate a series of roads while avoiding zombies and mountains. The constant need to tap the screen is similar to the popular mobile game Flappy Bird. In less than a week the game gained over 900 reviews with an average rating of five stars.
