Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning
Racing games on the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad
have received mixed reviews. Some do it right, and others we would like
to forget. So where does Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning fall? And wait
a minute we have a Shaun the Sheep game that is a racing game? Yes we
have a racing game based on Shaun the Sheep. It comes to us from our
friends over at Chillingo. And it falls on the upper end when it comes
how it fares.
Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning is a top down vertical racer. Your sheep and pigs will start at the top of the screen in an overhead viewpoint. Get to the bottom and make it through the gate to win. The characters in Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning look like the same ones they represent. There is definite barnyard humor in this app. The kind that only Chillingo could bring to us.
The music is very mellow and tame in Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning. The special sound effects is one of the areas that will bring a smile to your face. I love hearing the sheep, pigs, and various environment noises. The gate closing is one of my favorite sounds - as long as I am on the bottom side of the gate.
Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning is an universal app. That means the ninety-nine cent price allows you to play it on an iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. No double purchase for a little bit better graphics on the iPad. Our family appreciates that kind of business foresight. And yes Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this review.
Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning contains eighty levels in it. Which is impressive. But there is more. Gamers can create their own challenging levels in Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning. That means the only limit is your imagination. There are various controls schemes. I found my favorite (finger pressing where I wanted him to go), and it worked marvelously.
The main lessons in Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning is to get from point A to point B before anyone else. Bumping into other characters will not help you, and it will rarely hurt them. So racing clean is another lesson. I also learned to avoid obstacles and pay attention to signs. There are arrows on the ground that show us which way to go in certain areas of the levels. Chillingo has another hit on their hands with Shaun the Sheep Fleece Lightning.
