Sometimes, being the sheep is good. Even better, is being the sheep dog. In finger shepard you get to do just that. You'll use your finger to guide the little sheep back into their pen to safety. Watch out for those distractions though. Ok so theres only one distraction, but sheep sure do love grass. Many other obstacles lie in your path, and its up to you, the sheep dog, to make sure that you tend to the herd and get them back into the pen before time runs out.
Beat the timer, and you pass the level. Beat it with a certain time and you'll be awarded either a bronze, silver or, gold medal. There are 9 levels per world, each with up to a gold medal to be given out, so theres plenty for you to strive for in this shiny little gem of a game. Simple, yet fun and addicting. Not finding Finger shepard challenging enough? Maybe you should take a spin around the world leaderboards and see how everyone else is doing. You can even play different little mini games to test your herding skills, thus honing your sheep herding power for more gold medals. Or just for fun of course. No pressure.
Finger Shepard uses 3D/open GL graphics so while we're not looking at gorgeous eye candy, it still looks great and adds to the fun to see these little 3D sheep scampering around. Even if you don't make the world leaderboards you can still boast your score via Twitter using the integrated progress sharing. The controls are easy to learn and easy to use. You just place your finger on the screen and swipe. That's it. The developer has assured that more worlds and levels are coming soon, and that you can unlock some by upgrading to the full version if you haven't already. The game is free to install and play so get to herding!
