Noahsheep.gifAnyone who has ever attempted Sega's chaotic masterpiece Chu Chu Rocket will feel right at home with this little Flash game from Stimunation. Puzzled Sheep is a slower, gentler (and predator-free!) take on Chu Chu's familiar arrow-dropping action. Direct the clueless sheep back to their pen by dragging an arrow from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen and placing it somewhere on the map. To the left of the toolbar is the number of sheep on the screen and to the right is the total number of arrows allowed onscreen at once.

There are two ways to play. In Puzzle Mode, place the arrows on the map before the sheep begin to move. The sheep start immediately in Action Mode, and you're free to add and remove arrows at any time. It can occasionally be difficult to predict where arrows will end up, as they snap to an invisible grid. While not a huge issue, it can cause some unlucky sheep to slip away unnecessarily and could have been prevented by also snapping the mouse cursor to the grid.

Puzzled Sheep's cute graphics and proven concept make it a joy to play but, with only 20 levels to the demo, the fun doesn't last as long as you might like. I would have appreciated a note or popup informing me that the demo levels were up; after clearing the tenth level of either mode the game just stops responding to the next level button, which at first gives the impression that you've encountered a bug or are being forced to sit through an ad.

To play online you have to register though, and it's in German. If you have questions, I can translate things.
By the way, 'q' is pronounced like the word for cow in the German language. That is why they used cows.

So, are there ten or twenty levels? I encountered the "bug" after the tenth, but:

"...with only 20 levels to the demo..." causes me a bit of confusion.

Dana:

The demo has 20 levels total, 10 in action mode, and 10 in puzzle mode.

I like it!:,) Makes you think about your moves several steps ahead. By the way, to get an aroow off the board so you can put another on - just click on the arrow you want to remove.

Excellent game, thanks a lot! Wish it wasn't limited to just ten levels apiece, though.

I've enjoyed this game very much, but I am having quite a bit of trouble on level nine. If anyone has advice, please let me know!
Thanks!

I used to love to play Puzzled Sheep because I had the full version. I no longer have it and I think that the link is dead. I would love to be able to play it again so if anyone can tell me where I can find the game, I would much appreciate it! Thanks! :D
