A stylish addition to the AppStore herding games!

While I've only tried a couple of the challenges, the basics of play seems to be pretty consistent in all of them.

Herd the different groups of animals into their respective areas (sheep in pens, hogs in mud, ducks in their pond, etc.). This is easier said than done as not only are many of the animals pretty skittish, there are all sorts of obstacles from barns to narrow bridges, that you'll need to herd your flocks around to get them where they need to go. Sometimes the game might even throw in a twist with, say, two different kind of sheep you'll need to sort out before penning. This is actually a little more challenging than, say, having to pen a group of hogs and a group of sheep since the sheep, regardless of color, will tend to group together whereas, when dealing with say the aforementioned hogs and sheep, would not naturally form a cluster together.

As far as I can tell your points are mainly based on how quickly you get the animals in their respective areas and complete the level but there is a slight twist. Scattered randomly about each map are a number of bones that, while doing nothing to help your time, do grant you a few extra bonus points. So if trying to maximize your score you'd want to figure out how to both pen the beasties as quickly as possible while picking up as many bones as possible on the way. On the other hand, however, if just going for time (there is a medal timer counting down in the upper right hand corner letting you know which of the gold, silver, or bronze medals you might still be eligible for if you finish quickly enough), I don't think the bones serve any purpose.

The game will separately track both your best score and best time medal for each of the 8 challenges (often the run you receive your best score in would not be your fastest one and visa versa) but I don't believe there is any online scoring, just local.

The graphics are well animated and stylish with the sounds being very spot on from the different animals to the sounds of a guy mowing in one area if you're close enough to hear him with your pooch.

All in all a nice addition to the many herding games out there with I guess its most unique trait being that you'll often be herding entirely different kinds of animals all in one challenge with their own unique characteristics you'll need to adjust to on the fly if you hope to get all gold medal times and high scores.

The only thought that comes to mind is that maybe, as opposed to JUST awarding medals for best times, the game actually list the best times themselves for each level as even if one has already earned a gold medal in one challenge by completing it in 30 seconds, I think it might be nice if the game tracked how in a later game I did it all in 25 seconds.

5/5 stars

Great little adventure!

I had a great time with this game. There is a bit of a learning curve, but once I got the hang of it I had a lot of fun.

The controls for this game are quite intuitive and easy to use.

The various tasks and awards along the way keep you coming back for more. Keep up the good work Flightless! 2 Thumbs up.

5/5 stars
