    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 :rolleyes: ... with this graphics :eek: this might be a 10 $ title but the gameplay it's offering at the moment is a bit ... boring ... that's just me though.

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

    Looks cute, but I prefer Wackylands Green. Cheaper, its "Off With the UFO" has a similar, if not dumber, gameplay, and it has 2 other games included...

    If it's $1.99, I'd buy it!
     
  15. It's funny, I was just reading another thread about developers ripping off other people's IP. This is just another example of a 100% stolen game where some developer makes money off of other people's hard work. This is a complete copy of a minigame in Spyro the Dragon: Enter the Dragonfly. I won't support outright stealing by buying this game.

    I really dig the art style of this one. Look forward to trying out. Love the title. Sheep are the new penguins for gaming.

    You can't copyright ideas. Ideas are not IP. IP consists of graphics, sound, music, code, writing. These things you cannot rip off (without getting in trouble anyway), but ideas are fair game. I haven't played Spyro so I don't know if this was "inspired" by it or not, but there are sooooo many games by now that it wouldn't surprise me if any gameplay similarities are just a coincidence.

    Are you sure it's a 100% stolen game? They seem to be a mid/big studio with some partners. Accusation without any proof is just as wrong...

    So that means Call Of Duty is a rip off from Quake 3, just because they both involve guns and shooting in first person?
