Apple Takes a Look at Sheep
8:31 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Though Sheep has been out for a while, its fun factor has apparently made an impression on Apple, who has published an overview of the game. A unique puzzle/action game involving the herding of masses of sheep, Sheep features four different herders and a variety of peril-filled levels:

Despite what you might have read or seen about shepherding in the past, be warned that it?s not an idyllic occupation in Sheep. Every level is fraught with danger, from a sheep-eating shark that cruises through cornfields to electric fences which will turn your sheep into little piles of ash. You must herd a minimum number of sheep to the end of the level within a certain amount of time to advance to the next one, and you get a bonus if all the sheep make it there safely.
The rest of the overview contains a link to the OS X patch and a rundown of various tips and tricks. Those interested can find the whole read at Apple's Games site.
