Default Game impressions

This is a very cute game that looks and controls well on my iPad. I have played through the first level set and it starts easy but gets challenging towards the end. Besides herding your sheep past the obstacles to their pens, you can get up to three stars in a level. Getting a bell award on a level requires you to finish within a certain time and is always quite challenging. I will probably dream the phrase "sheep hit fire". The individual levels are very quick to play; typically well under 30 seconds, which is nice. I am enjoying this.

One complaint: the in-game notifications of achievements keep repeating even after they are achieved and it is annoying. However, the Game Center stuff in the game is not working for me right now, so perhaps the problem is related. I connect to Game Center initially when the game is started, but nothing is getting transmitted,

I got an early promo code to check this out before publication, and I must say the controls on this are stellar. You can fling your flock across the screen and stop them on a dime with a mere touch. There's a fair bit of replayability to the levels, with getting three stars plus "perfect". The latter requires completion within a certain time limit, which usually requires that you know the level extremely well so you can "throw" your flock around rapidly to claim all the stars and meet all the goals. I, too, am really enjoying this game, and I haven't had a problem with achievements repeating, but Game Center is working for me just fine.

Hmm... we haven't come across anything like this yet, but I'll take a look. If it's a bug we'll submit an update ASAP. We've discovered the problem and are submitting an update today. Thanks for letting me know!

Flockwork 1.1 has been released! It's a minor update that addresses an issue with the Game Center achievements. They should be fine now, but if you have any trouble let me know!

The next update will have more levels

Game Center is working fine now although previously earned Achievements must be earned again in the new version to register. Thanks for the fix. This is a very good game.
