Qbert meets Crossy Road in Totes the Goat
Are you totes awesome? Find out by playing Totes the Goat.
As we told you last week, Totes the Goat is an arcade platformer that’s inspired by the classic Qbert. But as it turns out, it’s also inspired by the much newer Crossy Road.
Like Qbert (which has been officially rebooted for iOS), Totes the Goat is an isometric platformer that has you jumping from platform to platform. And like its precursor, this new game challenges you to change the color of every cube in a pyramid or some other structure by making your character hop on top of the cube while avoiding obstacles and enemies.
But instead of Qbert, your character is now Totes the goat, whose enemies include Wily Wolves, Cranky Crows, and Bully Bears. And instead of a joystick, you just have to use intuitive swipe controls to hop from one cube to another.
And once you’ve hopped on top of all of the cubes, the next structure awaits for you to conquer.
Crossy Road-style graphics and characters
Qbert is also reminiscent of the popular endless hopper Crossy Road in that it also features vibrant voxel art. As well, it includes a collection of blocky characters to unlock using coins that can be earned while playing or real money via in-app purchases.
And if you’re wondering how come one of those characters happens to be Max from the pixelated platformer Mutant Mudds, it’s because Totes the Goat is created by the new studio Atooi, whose leader is Jools Watsham of Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid.

For fans of Qbert, Crossy Road, or both, or for anyone just looking to play something simple yet fun, Totes the Goat is totes recommended.
