    I was really happy to see today Apple have selected Sheepish as one of their staff favorites. Everyone here at Pixelthis is really excited to see what impact this will have on our sales over the coming week.

    A big thanks has to go to the forum members here at touch arcade. We have no doubt everyone here has contributed to the visibility of Sheepish in an every crowded market place. Now lets see if we can get in that top 10 sales list!

    Rock on!

    P.S. dont forget sheepish is on sale for 99c for a limited time!

    Great. Hope more people find this game. Odd the lite version is not ranked unless I missed it.

    Yeah! Sheepish is really a great intellectual game....Addicting too!!! I just want one request though. Can you make an update that will not automatically reset the level if you don't get it the first time? It's such a hassle to put all the stuff back into place if you only want to change a few pieces...

    Bought the game a week ago and haven't tried it yet, looks like fun thought.
    So is staff favorites pretty legit, i mean are the chosen apps really Apple's staff favorites?

    Thanks Dave

    I also tried the flash version on the developers site, this is a fun game. It starts out easy and gets more difficult as you progress, since I like puzzle games you know what this means.:D

    Yes I downloaded it, Thanks again!

    I'm at level 76 now. I just realized that I missed out a lot of the secret levels though. Its those wooden sign posts in the map. Probably missed something in one of the neighboring levels.

    As far as we know it's legit. Apple never contacted us to tell us it was goinmg to be featured (and still haven't). We're just glad they like it :)

    Before it was featured sales were very low, so there would be no other reason for Apple to feature it - and you can be sure we haven't bribed them :eek:

    We've moved up more to #21 in Puzzle and #7 in Family! We're above PacMan, Hooray!

    I'll second that! I picked it up some time ago after trying the lite version. I haven't played through a lot of levels yet but I am enjoying it. It can be very challenging but not impossible. And it's a great pick up and play game for those odd moments that seem to exist just to provide an excuse to play games on my iPhone :p. Congratulations PixelthisGlen and Peter. Hopefully your upcoming game will receive similar recognition when it is released.

    Hi guys - thanks for your comments! We're buzzing here. Some real-world info on sales for you - we are currently #76 in Games (#16 in Puzzle, #7 in Family). This results in about 400-450 sales per day in the USA, and 450-500 in the world overall per day. We estimate we are around #140 in Apps overall, but we don't really have any way of verifying this. Any ideas?
