App description: Extreme Sheepdog Trials is unique, original and thought provoking fun for the iPhone and iPad, which you can even play by whistling! But don't take our word - see what the world is saying:

"...Extreme Sheepdog Trials is a fun game which I find completely engrossing..." - 4 stars - TouchReviews

"...The thing with this game is, it has so many neat features that any one of them packed in to the game by themselves would have been cool enough, but the complete package is something you've really got to try..." - touchArcade

"...For those of us who are fed up of playing the same kinds of games over and over again, Extreme Sheepdog Trials is a welcome relief. It is not only refreshing but also fun with exciting game controls, and the amount of effort that the developers have put in is quite evident..." - 4 stars - iPhoneFootPrint

The aim of Extreme Sheepdog Trials is to guide your flock of sheep using your sheep dog through three game playing zones of five levels each, ranging from simple to fiendish. This is a game of patience and skill - if you rush, the sheep may panic and you may lose control or worse push the sheep off a cliff or into a river. Compare how well you are doing with the rest of the world in our world wide rankings for each level and for the game overall and use Facebook Connect to show off your best scores to your friends. You can even play this game using whistling!

This game was also runner up in the first AppsFire competition and if you have an iPad you should check out the HD Edition.

Cool idea, but as I am unable to whistle, not very good for me

I'm tempted to give it a try. I can whistle but not really an expert here. May be for a couple of minutes max before I get tired of whistling.

Has anyone tried out the free PC version yet? I have a Mac and I'm not installing windows on it just to try out a game.

You can play by touch as well

FYI you don't have to whistle to play - you can also play using touch, drawing or tapping where you want the dog to go.

That kind of takes out the purpose of the game though.

This game is too awesome looking. I'm going to get it later tonight, I think. I can whistle pretty well, and so the idea is pretty appealing. Especially if it really is using genuine sheep herding dog whistling. Is it? Would be fun to learn that. Also, the game looks like it will be fun even without whistling. I love the sheep cannon in level 5 (see the youtube page).
