Cute! Took me a little time to notice that shoot sheep wasn't a good idea, some player feedback would help with that. Otherwise, great audio too.

Fun game with great humor. Unlikely characters "little girl with shotgun" and half eaten sheep are hilarious. Good, but a bit repetitive music. Although you can toggle so. I love the sfx too. Munch!

Not sure exactly what else you can do to make gameplay more interesting but the whole time feels the same. Powerups or something?

Your game is adorable and easy to grasp. Also, I have red hair and my favorite animal is the I'm like 99% sure you made this game for me specifically. :) Can I tell you how horrified I was to learn you can accidentally shoot your own sheep? Music + Sheep + Cute SFX + pixel style = yay!

I read 'avoid shooting sheep' as if there were going to be sheep holding guns. I was wrong, but the game's pretty fun.

Loved the game! Had to beat my won score a couple of time. Nice mechanics, simple but sweet. Nice melody. Nice graphics.
I wish there were a scoreboard, but that's it. Really enjoyable!

That pixel art looks nice, but how to shoot? :)

Awesome graphics, music/sfx, and crazy fun! Those sheeps pixels are perfect, and the baa noise-I became quite protective of my flock. It was Zombies Ate My Neighbors all over again.

Cool game! I was probably more dangerous to my sheep than those wolves :D Fun!

Love pixel-art and music! :)
The game is fun and become interesting when the screen fills up with sheeps and you try not to kill them.
Nice game!

Haha, those are some resilient half-eaten sheep. Nice entry!

Sheep walking around with a big bite out of them are funny. Unfortunately, I don't think this game is lose-able? I intentionally gunned down all of my sheep at one point and they just came back.

@SuperDisk killing sheep decreases score, you only have to make best score - that's the point of the game

I like it a lot! the only comment I have is music is a bit repetitive but... great game!

Dec 14, 2014 @ 4:33pm

I love the theme. It is very funny how the wolves do not simply kill your sheep, but leave bite marks. The game is really difficult.

Cute - little bit hard to control tho!

I really enjoyed playing this. Having to avoid shooting certain entities is something you don't always see in shooters, and it adds a fun dimension of strategy. The art is delightfully gory too. Great job!

Hilarious. I love the bite out of the sheep. Had a smile on my face the whole time.

There comes a point where you have to sacrifice majority of your sheep to save the few.

Also, half eaten sheep walking around is hilarious and terrible.

Also, why u no sound rating? That was good music dude!

Great graphics and good use of the theme! It was pretty challenging just trying to shoot the wolves instead of the sheep, and the bite marks on the sheep were pretty funny! Very cute game, well done!
