"Nasty Goats" from Nickelodeon is a crazy, silly game for preteens to play. Children (that is, "kids," pun intended, and often reinforced by the narrator of the game) steer a pair of escaped goats through a littered course, collecting junk for the goats to eat. Meanwhile, they must avoid hazards, monsters, and the farmer who wants to return them to their boring home. Players earn points toward purchases of power-ups and new levels. The pace of the game is frenzied and the sense of humor is quirky.

Parents will want to keep an eye on kids playing this game -- it's fun, clean (figuratively speaking!), and a harmless time-waster, but oh, how much time will be wasted! Kids (or adults) who connect with this nutty game will want to spend hours playing, so set time limits.
