A nice fun and simple game, i really like the simply drawn art style. The general gameplay is a bit slow, and could probably be improved by lowering the cooldown on the sword, and increasing the speed of the sheep and player.

I was scared that I would have to kill all those sheeps, I thought I was holding a sword.

Didn't exactly understood how the gameplay worked, but I won XD

Nice and simple, but man the swing cooldown can feel frustrating. I wish maybe there were 2 weapons.

Fun simple game but no reason to leave the door it is easy to just spawn camp it. Also the game is like sonic you only need one ring / sheep. Small quick but fun game.

That made me laugh, I thought i had to kill the sheep and then they went through the door and I figured it mind be time to read the instructions. Game was entertaining to play, different obstacles, things that attack back (like a ram) would really bring this game together. Great job and keep up the good work

Stop sheep from fleeing with your sword. Yeap, my kind of humour. :D

Simple idea. I would've preferred it if the sheep were a little more frantic in moving around, and then not having sword cool down. Perhaps, thematically, the player should've had a shepherd's staff instead. Also, thematically, maybe a fenced-in area with a missing gate would've made more sense too. If you were intentionally defying things that would make sense, it could've been more over-the-top.

Graphics are basic but it's all pretty clear what things are.

I would like to say defender!
For me idea is original, and for more fun you can use timer, other thing that can be improved is to include some graphics when shout be done again

I totally like cute, abstruse and humorous game ideas like that. Has something in common with my entry.
Thanks to your game I now know, how to draw the perspective correctly for such a room :-)
