Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Sheeple Chase is a cartoon-like racing game that pits your sheep against fast-racing pigs. It's a pun-filled app that doesn't take itself too seriously, although the pigs can veer toward insulting when players lose a race. And make no mistake, players will lose a race -- several in fact. The first few races are fairly easy, but the game quickly becomes quite difficult and may frustrate younger players. Players can also create their own race tracks to play and share with others via email.

QUALITY

Sheeple Chase could be a really fun game for kids and parents -- if it weren't so mind-bogglingly difficult. With bright graphics and very basic controls, you might expect a slightly challenging, but fun, racer. Instead, though, this app quickly veers into something that will confound even core gamers. The only way to win is to lose time and again until you've memorized the course and perfect your timing on when to turn and accelerate. The game's many puns are hit and miss the first time -- but after you've seen them several times, they quickly lose their appeal. Ultimately, this is an app that shows promise, but is hampered by its lack of focus on how to please its targeted audience.
