Guide Your Sheep to Safety with Finger Shepherd

Just a coupe of days ago, we brought you news about a game called Agent Sheep. In that article, we said that sheep were effectively “one of the most under-utilized farm animals in the world of gaming.” It seems that this was not entirely accurate because as it turns out, while we were writing about this, yet another game featuring the fluffy quadrupeds emerged from the depths of XDA-Developers, and XDA Forum Member ShibbyUK is the one responsible for making this happen.

Finger Shepherd is an interesting puzzle type of game where you, a shepherd dog, need to pick up your sheep from across the land, flock them together, and make sure that they make it in one piece back in their pen, all in the least possible amount of time. You start off with your sheep scattered throughout different parts of the screen. Each time you touch on the screen will represent you barking at the sheep to try to get it to go where you want it to go. Sheep will try to run away from the bark, so you will need to use this to guide them all the way into the pen. As you go further along in the game, things will start getting more complex, as there will be obstacles that will either distract your sheep or put them in peril such as water, harvesters, and more.

The game also features full 3D graphics and a score board where you can see your best times compared to other players around the world. The dev is looking for feedback and suggestions on how to improve the game. If you happen to download it, please let the dev know what you would like to see in future versions of it.

Finger Shepherd: The game where You are the Sheepdog!

Use your finger to herd your sheep to the safety of their pen.
