A strong variety of cute indie games are available on the Windows Phone Store, with more being added for everyone to enjoy. One of these titles is Pocket Sheep, a game by No Brakes Games and Pin Studios through the App Campus program. Head on past the break to learn why this addictive little title is worth downloading.
As the name suggests, the game revolves around sheep and your pocket (since your phone is generally located there). Players are tasked with helping sheep get from a designated starting point to the lush field for some grazing. Sounds simple and easy, right? Wrong. It's not, so prepared to be challenged as you use odd combinations of fingers to help the poor things.
You'll be able to progress through 30 beautifully hand drawn levels, along with an incredibly relaxing and soothing soundtrack to boot. What's more is the game is perfect for younglings too, especially if you have Kid's Corner set up and configured. But that's not to say adults can't enjoy the experience - I've invested countless hours forming a bond with my Pocket Sheep, even if they do tend to fall off edges.
There are three difficulty levels to choose from in total and we recommend you take easy before moving up the ranks. While the level count may appear to be low at first, the collection of ideas implemented into this game is refreshing and prevents the game from feeling repetitive and boring. There are a few techniques to learn along the way, but the end goal is the same - save the sheep.
So how does one control the sheep? Using multi-touch, you essentially press+hold (or tap) behind the sheep to send them in the opposite direction - check out the video below or download the game for a better explanation. It can prove difficult at times, especially if you have large fingers, but we experienced no frustration while struggling to play through the challenging levels.
Here's a sweet video of the gameplay to give you an idea as to what to expect after downloading:
It's a cute little indie game and is perfect to kill a few minutes each day. You can download Pocket Sheep from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99 (currently $0.99 thanks to Red Stripe Deals - Windows Phone 8 only).
