Usually, in game trailers, the action is sped up in order to look more hectic and thrilling. More often than hot, when you sit down to actually play it, the gameplay is considerably slower, predictable, and boring.
Sheep Guardian is sort of a cross between a Galaga-style down-scroller and a tower defense game. You’re tasked with defending your small flock of sheep against waves of goblins (whatever happened to wolves?). But instead of the usual shepherd’s rod, you get to use crazy magical powers to stop them.
One of the first things I noticed upon picking up Sheep Guardian was the primary attack was a slingshot kind of like the one I saw being created at a Corona workshop over a year ago. I knew that thing would come in handy sooner or later! 😉
And, as I mentioned above, the gameplay is fast! Extra-determined gamers will find Sheep to be quite a fix for them, while more lackadaisical ones will probably get hilariously frustrated. The game certainly kept me on my toes, and made me take notice immediately. I’m thinking this was an intentional design by creators Levitan Software to make it that much quicker to get hooked on.
