Speed game:
you must shear a sheep as fast as possible. The more you shear, the faster the next sheep goes, and the most difficult will be for you to accomplish your goal!

Herd game:
you task is to shear a full herd of sheep and get extra time and bonus points.

Precision game:
the shaved sheep remain in the field and you must not shear them any further, otherwise you lose.

Magic game:
a fly and a bee, with magic powers enter the game. Touch them and the sheep shrink or accelerate. Only a grasshopper can give you some extra time to rescue your shearing.


You are in a green summer field, where flowers and herbs grow up very fast and the sheep jump around the grass. Help the sheep to enjoy this hot sunny day without their winter wooly coat, so shear as many as you can and the fastest as possible! If you are a good shearer you will gain extra time and find out how to get many extra bonus points!
NZ Inspired!
Bonus type

You can gain extra time by shearing 8 sheep in a small amount of time. In the lower left corner of the screen a countdown timer indicates you how much time you have and the number of remeaining sheep to shear in order to gain the time-bonus.

In the upper left corner a red line appears when you shear a sheep. If you shear another sheep before it disappears, you get extra points.

In the field there are flowers and bushes who grow-up fast: if you take them you gain extra points.

GRASSHOPPER TIME BONUS In the magic mode a grasshopper appears randomly in the field. If you catch it you get extra time.

Great game!Gave it five stars on greek appstore and wrote a small review.
Just saw that the No1 on Speed leaderboard is from greece also and I'm surprised that it's a girl (nickname: ASPA)...

Thank you tony!
Indeed, it seems that Greek girls are really strong @ this funny sheep-shearing!
Do you have many sheep in Greece? )
you know, here in NZ there are 80.000 sheep, so the competition will be really strong!

Tried it out Thank You heyapps. Let me break it down. This game will have you tapping frantically. Gameplay is simple tap a sheep multiple times to shear it. There is 4 different game modes.

Speed: Sheer as many sheep as you can in 1 minute. You get a time bonus if you shear a certain number, and you can only get a time bonus the first 30 seconds. and they move faster as the number you shear climbs.

Herd: Groups of sheep now and you have to sheer them all same as above with time and time bonuses.

Precision: Shear sheep but you cant touch sheep that have already been sheared or else its game over and the number of sheep increases as you go along shearing.time and time bonuses the same

Magic: And finally magic where you have to sheer sheep but theres flies flying around. Touch a fly and a magical power of speeding up the sheep or making them smaller each time you touch a fly its pretty amazing how small it gets and one fly gives you time bonus. This was my favorite.

The game is a fun pick up and play has cute sheep and upbeat music. With frantic gameplay. Definitely try it out.

@heyapps I did noticed that when I finished a game and left it on the score menu the music would keep playing even though my phone went to sleep.Also I loved the lullaby music in the about section almost put me to sleep writing this

@EMTKiNG thanks for your comments we'll check the sounds of the score menu and take it into account in the next update! We'll probably add Openfeint too. Any other comment is welcome for the update!
