[VIDEO PREVIEW] Sheep Abduction - Stunning!

After not been able to find out about the new game SHEEP ABDUCTION I decided to buy it.

Its an arcade game/puzzle task game. You control a little UFO and pick up stuff (like sheep) and drop them onto crop circles. You need to fit a particular number of a particular type on a crop circle. Kind of simple.

Except the graphics are completely gorgeous. Although the game is technically a 2D one, it is set in a 3D environment (pretty much like Little Big Planet.) The cartoony look is fantastic. The control of the UFO via tilting of the screen works well, and the physics of stuff swaying works nicely.

My only hesitance is the price. Its $4.99, which is a tad steep.

Graphics are ok, but the gameplay ... naaaaaahhhhhh, probably would've been more fun if this was a sidescrolling shooter ... with this graphics this might be a 10 $ title but the gameplay it's offering at the moment is a bit ... boring ... that's just me though.

check this

It is not boring I tell ya. The further you get, the more is introduced. It's quite a bargain actually.

Video for Sheep Abduction

I recorded the first 3 levels (kind of tutorial stuff) of Sheep Abduction. Sorry for the quality.
