Donations and Funding

GoatPunks has been a self funded project from the beginning. As I get closer to the finish line I would like to open up the project for donations and suggestions that will help improve GoatPunks.

About the Game

Gameplay

Goat Punks is a fast-paced, action game that lets you challenge goats to battle from the online challengers tower.

The aim of the game is to score as much points as possible to achieve a higher ranking on the online challengers tower. There are several ways to earn points: 1. Knock goats off the tower by using timing, just as they land on a platform. 2. Hopping on a yellow rabbit earns your points. 3. Make your way to the top of the mountain. Once you’re there shoot like crazy trying to hit as many goats as possible. The lower down the mountain you hit a goat, the higher the score you can earn. 4. Bonus points are awarded at the end of the game if you can get the crown you will earn a quarter of the bonus score. If you can get to the top of the mountain you earn half the bonus points. If you can get the crown and be at the top of the mountain you get the full bonus points. 5. Beware of coming last as you can get a penalty deduction off your score.

 

With the score you earn you can buy different weaponry. This can be done from the Profile menu. You can fill in up to two slots of weapons and also change your weapon in-game from the Pause menu. Each weapon has different specs assigned, with varying speeds and explosive range. During the game, if you can find the purple rabbits, they will give you extra ammo so that you can shoot twice at once. Three is the limit of how many bombs you can thrown down at the one time.

There are other special to be found. With the green rabbit you super charge the speed of your goat. The blue rabbit will give your a shield. Each of these are temporary specials that are lost when you fall off the mountain. Beware of the rabbit with different coloured ears as they can be traps.

 

As you play your goat gets trained to play how you play. This is for when other users want to challenge your goat they will essentially be playing against an online version of yourself. The better you play, the better your goat plays when your not around. Your trained goat can also earn your points when your not playing. If they come first in a match agains somewhen else they can earn half the bonus score. You claim the bonus score your goat earned you the next time you login.
