Written Android App Review
Take a break from the gaming bloodbath you usually see on your Android with Clouds & Sheep, a new sandbox style game where you tend an insanely cute, and occasionally not-so-smart, herd of sheep. They may not be the sharpest tools in the shed, but gosh darn it, they’re awfully cute.
Concept & Gameplay
In the Clouds & Sheep Android app, the concept is simple. You own a herd of fluffy white sheep, and it’s your job to make sure they stay happy, temperature controlled and otherwise satisfied.
The happier the sheep are the quicker they make happy points, and make baby sheep to keep your bleating herd growing. Use happy points to purchase items that make caring for your woolies easier and more fun.
And then there are the clouds. Think of them as a slightly less stupid herd of sheep. Use clouds to make it rain, break up clouds to avoid dangerous storms, and otherwise serve you’re herd’s needs.
A series of 33 challenges keep the game going, however gameplay is open ended. You can tend sheep to your heart’s content. Just be warned, that will mean saving this not so bright bunch from their own unhealthy impulses on occasion.
First time players will benefit from the in-game tutorial. Don’t worry, you’ll be an expert herder in no time.
Layout & Design
The real stars of the Clouds & Sheep Android app are the adorable graphics. Each sheep is rendered in detail, and chew grass, fall in love, stumble around and otherwise steal the show. This game is pure cuteness.
As you progress through the game you can choose to grow your flock in many different settings, from the desert to the sunny plane. The screen can get quite busy, especially if you buy extra sheep or plant plenty of flowers (eating flowers puts sheep in the mood for love. G-rated love, mind you).
During each level you control most sheep actions with a simple touch of your finger. Additional menus for shopping and placing items can be tucked out of the way for a wider screen view.
Clouds & Sheep for Android is a breath of fresh air. This charming game is easy to play, can be challenging, and is perfect for a little distraction and some fun. It is also all ages appropriate, although there are ads in the app so you might not want to hand it to your toddler.
Speaking of ads, you may have already guessed, the Clouds and Sheep Android app is completely free to download and play. It’s hard to beat that kind of value, especially when you consider the app’s stunning, bright graphics and simple yet addictive gameplay.
