Protect your flock from evil carnivorous aliens intent on stealing them for...whatever nefarious activity they have planned!
They travelled millions and millions of light years to sink their teeth into the tastiest sheep on Earth.
Armed with an ever growing arsenal of military-grade weapons, only one man can stand between the alien armada and your flock of helpless, parachute equipped sheep:

What's New in Version 1.01
The game looks much better through a major graphics update, and sounds better with some extra sounds added.
We've also added a new leaderboard to compete for highest level reached.
But the biggest change is the addition of the auto-camera to make the game much more accessible and fun.
However, the original tilt view controls are still in there for the old school players, and using it will net you 150% bonus sheep score in the level results!
To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true!
Having played Infinite State's brilliant Frutorious, it seemed only right to check out what I'd missed from their back catalogue. And I would have, if I hadn't forgotten. But then I was reminded that their earlier game, Shepherd, was free! Naturally, I made sure I downloaded it immediately.
How could I have missed this before! It's just what all my five minute gaps of free time have been waiting for! It's like Operation Wolf with UFOs! It's like Point Blank with mutton! It's got weapons upgrades, chained explosions and high-score opportunities aplenty!
Shepherd is a really good game, which packs a great deal of fun into a relatively simple concept, and loads it with doses of cuteness and charm. Whether you download it for free or, gasp, actually pay for it, you won't regret it (unless you're actually a sheep-stealing alien in which case it might touch a nerve). Play it now.
