Great game, challenges are easy to understand and the levels are mostly short enough that retrying isn't an issue.

The game starts very simple, but in the next levels it gets very challenging, without being unfair. I like the fact that the game keeps presenting new features, so gameplay still feels fresh in later levels! Also, art is very cute. Well done!

Amazing presentation, with stellar art and great audio. I liked how deep the controls were, in that the closer to the sheep you were, the higher they flew, and the sheep turning around when they touched the dog. Level design was on the whole well done, although having to wait for platforms, especially when you wanted to coax multiple sheep onto them, was a little tedious. Very well done.

I really love the concept of the game, at first it seem to easy but in the end is very challenging! Thank you for make it!

Cute game as always! Subtle things like the sheeps turning back when they touch the dog helps the gameplay a lot, and make the game feel more alive. Also: go pico8 o/

Yay another Pico 8 game! I loved it, nice graphics, good music and levels and really good polish!

Wow I am blown away at this game. Everything to the art, sound effects, and especially level design is on point and you should be very proud of what you've done. The only gripe I have really is that the platform physics can be buggy sometimes - especially on moving platforms.

Really cute and clean designs, it's a very well done game!

Submitted

Wow, very clean and simple with just absolutely solid mechanics. I have to concur that the polish on this is great! And the more sheep games the better, lol! 

Submitted

The polish on this game is incredible! Surprisingly challenging but still very fun to play.

Really clean artstyle, love the color choice !

Such a lovely game! Your pixel art is amazing and the controls are really great. Thank you for showing people that PICO-8 can be used for such wonderful game!

I love PICO8 games, Took me a while to figure where the sheep needed to go and out how to use switches. Bashing the sheep around felt very fun, but I did feel compelled to restart a level whenever I lost one. One of the better games I’ve played so far.

First off, great to see a game using PICO8! :)

The idea/story here is so original, I love it. The pixel art intro of the sheepdog with the dead shepherd (so sad!) is a great way to add a little bit of story to the game - I really care for the dog and its mission haha.

The gameplay is just as original and yet so simple to understand. After a few barks I got the hang of it (bark radius, sheep trajectory). The graphics are clear and have a cute vibe which I really enjoyed. The sfx are perfect, I like the mission complete jingle  🎶

You even included a map for selecting levels  🙌🏾 I really don't have much negative feedback except maybe the sheep pen could stand out a bit more (maybe with a flag or something?).

I've saved this game to play later with some tea :) Overall, amazing job!

Submitted

A surprising amount of difficulty for such a cute game! I love the little jingle whenever you complete a level.

Submitted

Really nicely polished game! Fits the theme perfectly. Everything about it is very cute. It's also surprisingly challenging. 

Submitted

This is so cute and lovely. :)  It also controls a lot better than I thought, I remeber a similar mini-game in mario odyssey and that plays terrible ...

Submitted

this is a really fun game! the art and sounds are all so cute! unfortunately my little sheepdog hands are so bloody, i think i killed like 15 sheep :(
