I mentioned recently that we had two new products to announce; it’s time to show you the second: Get The Flock Out is our new sheep-herding game for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
If you’re familiar with iPhone games where you land planes or dock boats, this has similar controls — just draw a path with your finger — but is quite a different (and more varied) experience.
In Get The Flock Out, you guide your faithful sheepdog, Hemp (named after Old Hemp, the original Border Collie). Since the village is under attack, you need to use him to guide the sheep to the rescue balloons on each level.
As the game progresses, it becomes a little more like pinball or crazy golf, as you need to herd the sheep through strange contraptions, solve puzzles and collect gold and gems along the route.
You can play the game your own way — take your time to relax and enjoy the sounds of the countryside, bringing your sheep along on a leisurely stroll if you prefer. Explore and try to find all the hidden bonuses. Or race through, trying to get the fastest time possible in a display of virtuoso shepherding.
Get The Flock Out is a Universal app, meaning one purchase will include the HD version (for iPad, or iPhone/iPod touch with Retina display) as well as the standard version.
We hope to show you more of Get The Flock Out soon, but in the meantime, head on over to check out some screenshots and character artwork!
