Sheeple 1.1: "Hurry Up Already!"

Sheeple version 1.1 was submitted to Apple on the morning of 9/18! This new version is really awesome and gives you much more power to manage the Sheeple! The new version also includes 10 new exciting levels! If you have been waiting to buy Sheeple, then wait no longer!

Episode 2: Hurry Up Already!
In this episode you are given the ability to prod the Sheeple! Prod the Sheeple to change the direction they are walking. You can also hurry the Sheeple along by nudging them in the direction they are already walking! There are 10 new levels that are very challenging and a new achievement for completing all 70 levels!

Here is the help screen explaining the new feature.




INFORMATION ON THE NEXT, NEXT VERSION: 1.2!
I am currently deep in the development process of version 1.2. These are the features that are planned, plus a very special feature that will be kept top secret until version 1.2 is released! I am still on schedule to submit this to Apple by 10/2, so these updates are going to be coming pretty fast!

New features:
- Faster crate sliding
- Help screen page numbers (e.g. "3 of 8")
- The star explanation help screen will be updated to also show a gold star so that it's more clear
- Background music (same as in the gameplay video)
- Crate sliding sound effect (will have a different sound if sliding on grass vs a bridge)
- Update some of the levels that have hidden stars to be less challenging (i.e. additional tools and/or limiting possible obstacles)
- Medal rating for completed levels
- Timer changed to count up instead of down
- Leaderboards
- Way more achievements that will tie into the new level rating system
- New option on the main menu to "Quick Play" and play the next unplayed level or "Levels" to view level stats and select a specific level to play
- In-game tutorial to help introduce new gameplay elements
- Additional 10 levels
- Friend challenges
- Possibly a limited undo tool use feature

There is a lot that I'm not telling about the new level rating system, leaderboards, and friend challenges! This is going to be an incredible release, so don't miss out on the fun!

I can attest that version 1.0 is fantastic! I am SO looking forward to the prodding feature.

Anyone thinking of getting this game - JUST GET IT! Its definitely well done, great gameplay and a unique concept.

The newest features were definitely discussed and hashed about to make this game even better! I am dying to know the surprise! But for now will take 1.1.

The Sheeple need prodding but I bet you won't! Go get this game!

I bought this a few days ago because of the OpenFeint achievements. I haven't had anytime to even open it yet and there is a new version coming out soon

I need to try this one out.

Technically TWO! One already submitted and another on the horizon! Truly a dedicated and accessible developer. The game definitely deserves more attention.
