Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Save Our Sheep is a tower defense game in which players set up a barricade of exploding barrels, flipping rakes, and all manner of zany hazards to prevent animals from getting through the farm. If players are unsuccessful, the animals will walk through the path and reach a flock of sheep at the end. It is the player's goal to keep these sheep safe, and it is their strategy in placing hazards around the farm that will determine whether the sheep remain unharmed. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is it any good?
SAVE OUR SHEEP is one of the first iPhone games to use the Unreal Engine, a development platform previously used only for high-end PC and console games. As such, even though the core gameplay is basic in its scope, the presentation is very impressive. Graphics, animations, and environments all look very nice. The game itself plays smoothly, and even though there is nothing particularly exceptional about the gameplay mechanics, it is a pleasure to play through.
