Nice simple gameplay, and the art and color options were really nice. My one comment is I originally thought I had to guide the sheep only to the front of the Sheep's home, where the door was. Maybe it would be nice to have it more obvious that you can guide them anywhere within that square.

Nice game, well done! Really loved the art!

Very cute, the sprites match the background pretty well.

I think the gameplay element is quite interesting and can be expanded upon.
Considering how simplistic the objectives and obstacles are, you can consider using a RNG to randomise the levels. 
Also, the barking gameplay element feels very sluggish  initially and can get stale fast. If you add power ups or a skill tree or upgrades would make the game feel more engaging.
Also more terrain and enemy types would also make it quite interesting!


Just suggestions, maybe you wanna stick with just a more realistic wolf and sheep theming

Oh and the GUI elements could be better, it kinda takes away from the effort making nice sprites and backgrouds.

Loved the inclusion of a minimap, very nice

The barking between levels was hilarious. I really enjoyed the art pair with the music. The gameplay was very relaxed and overall I really enjoyed my time!

I actually think you could adapt this to a mobile game pretty easily. I'd download it.

Beautiful art! The concepts is nice, but it seems shallow. It seems to be missing some more mechanics. But I think this is a great start to continue developing the idea.

The art was super cute. It would of been nice to have a few more levels. Over all good game. :)

Nice job! I liked the unique 2D style with sheep and enjoyed herding them with the dog. Well done! :)

This has a fun core but without any expansion of this core idea or differing mechanics the game play gets stale quickly and the presentation could use different music. Overall good job though.

I agree, I was prepared to create different levels so that it had some progression but I ran out of time. Thanks for playing and rating.

I like the idea. I don't think the cheery music matches the theme.

Good concept, gets a bit repetitive after a minute or two though, other than that good job!

Cool Graphics, fun gameplay.

The idea is fairly good, and i'd say well executed.
Some Controls didn't work for me, for example spacebar didn't bark, and clicking the Menu Button didn't do anything. The idea could certainly be expanded upon, but it's a pretty solid base.

I liked the art, the colors seemed well coordinated.

Overall: Solid, but nothing extra ordinary

Developer

Thanks for playing and rating! Certainly there are several bugs like the menu button and the space bar among others even worst xD I wanted to fix them and create more levels but I ran out of time so this is all I could upload before the end of the jam.
