On a pitch-black night, the skies over a farm split apart. A beam of shimmering light hit the ground and started pulling up the sheep inhabitants of the farm. The poor sheep woke up to find themselves hovering inside transparent tubes in a strange room. It’s not clear what happened after that, but the lights went off and the sheep managed to escape from their prison. And that is when the dangerous adventures of these earthly creatures begin on an extraterrestrial spaceship speeding through the interstellar darkness. How can you help the sheep?
Do you want to hear the truth? Aren’t you afraid to get disappointed in these cute little balls of white fur? If you keep reading it, don’t complain – I warned you! So the big news is that these sheep are silly! Actually, they are very, very silly – they have lost the very little of what could be called their mind before the abduction. Now all they can do is to run, probably due to shock and a sudden change of familiar settings. Even their instinct of self-preservation is gone, so they can easily fall of a platform or jump into the tentacles of an alien monster who couldn’t wish for more than that. Simply put, these creatures are real troublemakers. Perhaps, the aliens abducted them to study stupidity in its purest form. But why did they choose sheep with their vulnerable and delicate psyche? Anyway, earthlings never leave anyone in trouble. We won’t let aliens steal our dumb sheep! Let’s do our best to save them! To do that, we’ll need to arrange arrows on platforms to point the sheep in the direction of teleports. It’s strange that the aliens did not turn them off - this very fact questions their own intellectual capabilities. Freedom to the sheep of the Earth!

I am a 35 yr old gamer with the typical story:
All the systems since Coleco, Pong, and Atari with the PS Vita on preorder (never missed a console or handheld).
iPad 2 and iPod 4, over 4000 full version iOS games and 300+ iTunes reviews later, and here we are!
(please understand, I am not bragging...well maybe a little :) but I am just laying a little background. I am positive that there are a ton of people that make me look small time, I'm just an average geek trying to find my fun for the day!)
Anyhow, I have never heard of the Running Sheep games. Somehow the first one snuck by me.
I watched a video of both of these Ladia titles, and knew I wanted them. Bought the iPad versions (Running Sheep and Running Sheep: Tiny Worlds)
I highly recommend these games.
They are very addicting, well thought out, interface is simple but with that perfect amount of polish, solid gameplay and the visuals are incredible.
I love games with different themes like this, as it seems to really make the game sophisticated and gives you something to shoot for (unlocking new worlds / themes)
After I play them through all the way, I may come back to update this review.
Future update with even more themes would be amazing too ;)
Keep up the great work guys!
I like the game and would probably give it a 5 star rating if there was a way to shut the music off but leave the sound of the game on.. The music gets kinda annoying after 15 mins of playing.
