It *LOOKS* really nice, but any clues as to the actual gameplay?

Interesting gameplay mechanic. Looks like it could be decent. At least its not another line drawer.

Or this one? Herd of Cows

EDIT: I was half way expecting a sheep version of Cluck It!

I'm glad people are enjoying the game! Thank you for your support!

We've tried to make "Flock It!" quite "game-y". There are 15 distinct levels, each with increasingly hard obstacles, there are also three distinct goals per level (try to get your sheep to the pen with their wool in tact, try to finish the level within a time limit and try to get the three stars on each level). Things can get quite hectic later on as well, when you have to keep separate groups of sheep in line at the same time, with electric fences and rivers you need to steer them away from! They have a mind of their own sometimes and don't like sitting still.

Also, we've added four mini-games, so you can always go back and try to beat your own scores. We've really tried to make this game very replayable.

Control is indeed very simple: you tap the screen and the sheep move away from where you pressed. You can just tap or hold and drag to herd the sheep around.

If you have any more questions regarding the game, please don't hesitate to ask!
