Home Sheep Home 2 joins the original to make an excellent pair of games for thinkers. Players must maneuver a trio of sheep through a series of obstacles by stacking, pushing, and sending the sheep through the air.
Using your finger, maneuver the sheep into the right position to escape each maze. Much of this involves planning where to place the sheep in order to successfully work through the obstacles. Players may find themselves lifting the sheep up an elevator, squeezing them through a tunnel or using TNT to blast them to the exit.
The key is to keep track of the specific strengths of each sheep and use them to your advantage. Miscalculating the plan of attack may require restarting the round to get things right.
The Home Sheep Home series may not be getting a lot of publicity, but it is very enjoyable for those who are looking for a new game to challenge them. It is a great combination of physics-based play with thinking through the challenges of a puzzle.
- Excellent gameplay
- Clever premise and characters
Off the Mark:
