Sticky Sheep is a physics based puzzle game released by Chillingo Ltd.
“The sheep have been baaa-d and are refusing to do as Baxter the sheepdogging Beagle tells them – so it’s time for drastic measures. Don your trusty canine crash helmet and get ready to ram some rams!”
This game is simple in design, Sticky Sheep is a physics-based “mini golf” game where you will send your dog careening off bouncing around the level hitting sheep, walls and other objects on the level.
There are several sheep on each level, all of the sheep need to reach the target areas in order to complete the level. The target areas are sticky and will slow the sheep as they cross them. There are some coins to collect along the way and if you manage to collect them all then you are likely to get a gold star for the level.
The game offers a campaign that is split into several areas that become harder as you progress. Each area has nine levels, it appears the game has about 45 levels at release. The levels are fairly short and there are some tough ones, but I had completed 30 or so within about 2 hours.
New dangers and sheep types are added as the game progresses.
There is also an arcade mode, this unlocks levels as you progress through the campaign. This is like a normal level of the game, but with lots of sheep. You are given a limited amount of shots and time to get the maximum points you can. There are bonus shots that can be gained and time is added to each time the sheep stop on a target. When you finish the mode you can only post the score to facebook, which is a bit of a shame.
The game is control by touching the dog and pulling away from them in the opposite way in which you wish it to travel. You can tap a moving alien to stop them.
The graphics and sound are both good. The sheep and dog are well drawn.
On the upside:
- Cute game.
- Fun to play on almost every level.
- Puzzles are generally very well designed.
On the downside:
- The Dog sometimes seems to overreach to some hits.
- Some levels need near perfect angles and control of angles to complete.
Overall, this is an enjoyable this game, this game reminded me a lot of Marbians. Generally I found the puzzles fun and well designed, some levels could be annoying as you try to get the power and angles right. The game adds never elements every few levels, and this manages to keep things interesting. There is nothing really new here, but if you are looking for a fun puzzle game it is well worth a download at the price.
